Members that Inspire Us

Robin has been a member of Bristol Total Fitness since April 2011. She has always been athletic but fell behind during her college years. Robin met Personal Trainer, Adriana Ferns back in 2011 and has trained with her for 3 years. This year she made a commitment to do a race every month starting in March and ending in November, Robin has kept that promise. In the beginning of November she completed her first Ultra Marathon, a 37.5 mile race! Robin also enjoys high intensity circuit workouts and Leslie's Spin class. Thank you Robin for showing that regardless of how little time you have a workout can always be fit in. Congratulations!


Pam Sanford has been a member of Swansea Total Fitness since 2006. Her goal is to stay fit and healthy. Pam has some back and neck issues, by coming to the gym on a regular basis helps keep her back healthy. One of Pam's biggest accomplishments this year is running the CVS 5k race. She started training with her husband Bob, he helps keep the pace and encourages her to improve. Pam and Bob run from their house to the Swansea boat ramp and back, when running up Ocean Grove Avenue, they jokingly call it their “heartbreak hill”. Keep up the good work Pam! You are an inspiration!

Darlene Amoroso has been a member of Seekonk Total Fitness since 2012. Having been active her whole life, Darlene’s consistency is what makes her a great member of the month. She has been training with Walter Medeiros for over 2 years focusing on staying fit and getting strong. Darlene also comes in several times a week to do her own workouts that include pull-ups and the stepmill. You wouldn’t believe it, but she has 14 year old twins with her husband Joe. She is a prime example that you can lead a happy, healthy lifestyle and enjoy your weekends.  We’ll see you at the beach next summer looking strong and lean Darlene!

Josh and Caitlyn Santos have been members of Dartmouth Total Fitness since February 2013. When asked about their experience at the gym, Josh felt thier success story is staying committed to working out every single week since joining. He says, “All journeys have bumps in the road and it’s important to stay committed.” Caitlyn has lost weight, toned up, has improved her running time and has recently quit smoking. She says, “It’s not about having time, its about making time! Consistency is key! They both enjoy many of the DTF group fitness classes and cannot say enough positive things about all of DTF staff. Congratulations Josh & Caitlyn!
