Ben Panunzio

CF-L1 & Nutrition Coach, 1st Phorm

After competing in sports all growing up and in college, I thought I would have instilled habits that could I take with me after I “retired”. Boy was I wrong…

When my Baseball career at UMass Amherst ended, I spent several years sporadically being “healthy” mentally and physically. 

I found myself doing the “right thing” for a month or so at a time and then sliding back into a comfortable routine of overeating and no physical activity. I always struggled with being consistent.

After years of dealing with anxiety and physical pain I decided to make a permanent change!

Let’s face it, we all need a friend, a coach, or an accountability partner in this life. Sometimes that involves encouragement. Sometimes it’s an uncomfortable conversation. But most importantly, I thoroughly enjoy helping people and seeing them put in the work to achieve their goals.

Because I know where I was, and where I am now, I want to help as many people as I can with their own journey!

There are always going to be obstacles along the way, but anyone can make a change. You’ll be so glad that you did.

Let me know how I can help!

Ashley Trendall

CF-L2 Head Coach & Nutrition Coach

My approach to Nutrition Coaching is very individual-based. I believe in meeting people where they are at and creating a plan together according to their goals. I have found that what works best for one person, might not be what’s going to work best for the next, so I look forward to working with clients to build new habits and be the structured accountability they might need! My goal is to help clients build new lifestyle habits that feel sustainable, to the point that someday soon they feel confident and comfortable on their own!
I am a certified Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition, am a Level 2 CrossFit Trainer and have been doing CrossFit myself for almost a decade now. A former teacher, I started coaching part-time at The Port in 2017 and came on full-time at the end of 2019. That’s all just to say that I love working with people, staying active, and helping others find ways to feel their best and do the things they love too!
Looking forward to meeting with you!
