John Pellarin

I am responsible for program design and implementation at Pellarin. My passion for helping everyday people achieve their health and fitness goals is derived from my exposure to the drastic shortcomings of the fitness industry in dealing with chronic injuries, building functional strength, and correcting mobility issues. Having been in athletics my entire life, I believe that the aesthetic benefits of working out should be secondary to any person's ability to function properly, without pain or immobility. I hope that you come and visit us at Pellarin to find out what we're all about!

Having played competitive athletics at both a collegiate and National level, my background in health and fitness allows me to organize and manage client training at Pellarin Performance. From conducting initial client testing sessions, to programming research and data analysis, I am uniquely qualified to manage every operational aspect of the gym, as well as see to the needs and expectations of our private personal training clients.

Although I'm only available to work in the gym at a client's request, my responsibilities are very important. I am directly employed to improve our clients' emotional wellbeing and cuddle quotient. If my goofy smile doesn't make your day infinitely better, my spunky personality will!


It’s also really cool to see a trainer that lives the philosophy he teaches. If you are looking for a whole body work out this is the place to go.
