OUR TEAM IS EXCITED TO HELP!
Steve & Lindsay Bergeron
Owners, Coaches, Parents, Awesome Humans
Steve and Lindsay opened the doors to AMP Fitness in 2014 in order to provide those looking to work on their fitness access to expert coaching, research-based programming, a fun & safe environment and a wildly supportive community. They wanted to create a place where you're not ignored, can be YOURSELF, and feel 100% supported in order to succeed. A place that actually cares. Cool gig, right?
When they're not creating superheroes, they spend their time raising their tiny intern, (TBA April 2018!!!), snuggling with their dog, Koa, and going on adventures. They have a passion for hiking, exploring, cooking and enjoying life.
"Our mission is to help as many people as they can unlock their true potential and live their best life. And for that we're grateful."

Eric Temple aka 'Professor E'
Head Program Design, Fitness Coach
Eric has been a part of the AMP Team since the beginning and is our head program design ninja. He's from Pittsburgh, PA and is a former collegiate baseball player and lifetime athlete.

Kristin Callahan aka 'KCAL'
Kristin is the perfect blend of cool coach, best friend, and fitness nerd which makes her an integral part of the team. She grew up in Farmingdale, NY and believes that fitness is experiential and there’s no magic pill. She's a bad ass, has great hair, rad style choices, and is an inspiration to millions of girls and women. Wait, is she Wonder Woman?
"Enjoy the process. Sometimes it’s a struggle, that’s true, but when you realize the power your own body can possess it truly is magical and can change your life."
Favorite thing about AMP: It feels like a home every time I walk in the doors. I also love how it's a place where everyone comes together to work on getting better at both fitness AND life.

Meg Julian aka 'The Athlete'
Meg is a rockstar athlete, exceptional coach, bookworm and has a killer mohawk. She grew up in Winchester, MA and graduated from Bentley College. Meg competes internationally in elite obstacle course races. She's passionate about training and tacos (in no particular order) and enjoys getting lost in the woods for hours, monkey bars over water, rope burns, and trying to jump over fire faster than other people.
"Fitness is the part of all of our lives that should allow us to feel strong, indepedent, and badass... and look good naked."
Favorite thing about AMP: Everyone you meet from the coaches to the members feel like family (the kind you like).
Fitness Cred: NASM, CFSC, Functional Movement Screen L2, Precision Nutrition L1 and an obnoxious amount of others.
Angelo Alexander aka 'The Actor'
Angelo has been with AMP since the beginning, as a member, and knew he had a greater calling to help the #AMPfamily! He grew up in Ozone Park, NY and began life as an actor and then eventually made his way into academia, so expect equal parts pizazz and deep conversations. Angelo enjoys the highbrow and lowbrow of life (sometimes together), parentheticals, and sharing all that he has learned on this journey with you all.
"It’s never too late to start taking control of your fitness. No matter what level you are at, you can do amazing things because you ARE amazing!"
Favorite thing about AMP: AMP is the most non-judgmental fitness place that you will find. Everyone is welcomed with open arms and encouraged to be themselves, always.
Lindsay’s nutrition program took me over the top. I saw such incredible success in improving my lifestyle and found myself eating better, listening to my body and looking way better without a shirt on.
