Stash Merritt, Personal Trainer,

“My transition from an athlete to trainer was something that I never planned, nor thought would become a reality. I have been passionate about fitness since I was 14. This was my first introduction to a weight room. After about 6 months of hard work and 25 pounds later, I realized how training off the field could translate to better performance on the field. Since then, I have been hooked. Whether that training was for the football field, wrestling mat, or power lifting platform, I was constantly looking for more ways to improve.”

Stash currently works as a math teacher at Victor Schools. He also is actively involved in coaching as the Victor modified wrestling coach. Stash has earned multiple certifications from CrossFit and USA Weightlifting. He applies his passion to training adult clients as well as student athletes. Stash feels that regardless of where people are in life, it’s important to identify what their goals are and to create a plan to achieve them.

“It has been said life is a journey, not a destination. I feel that fitness is a key element to make that journey as enjoyable as possible.”
