At Ocean State Fit we coach you with the thought that your body is the best piece of equipment you'll ever have and learning how to use it and challenge it is the key to everything. This means we aren't going to stick you on some selectorized piece of equipment or some cardio machine for an hour. We pair your body up with the top training tools from resistance bands to dumbbells to barbells and kettlebells. Plus TRX suspension trainers and slides, to name just a few. The goal is to get you moving better, feeling better and looking better and we use the most appropriate training tools for the job.
Meet Your Coaches
John Miller, Owner, CSCS
John has been in the health and fitness industry for over 25 years from NJ to NYC and finally Rhode Island where he has been for the last 20 years. Although he enjoys the ”transformation” side of Personal Training, the “corrective” side has always been his passion. The two sides often coincide at Ocean State Fit because not only does everyone want to look better, but they want to get out of pain and feel better too. John’s focus on keeping up to date on the latest information regarding corrective exercise, conditioning and nutrition make him ideally suited for the job.
Aside from being a Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT), John is also a Certifed Strength & Conditioning Specialist (NSCA-CSCS), Titleist Performance Level 1, Precision Nutrition Certified (PN) & Functional Movement Screen (FMS) provider.
Stacy DeMars, CPT
Stacy met John a few years ago all because of a Groupon, yes you read that right a Groupon. After years and years of failed diets and exercise routines Stacy decided to take a chance and buy a deal for personal training. It went unused for almost a year until she finally decided she better use it or lose it, little did she know one Groupon would change her whole life.
Having spent nearly 13 years in the Marketing field Stacy decided it was time to pursue her passion and get certified as a personal trainer. Working one on one and helping clients find a nutrition and fitness program that suits their needs is her specialty.
Duke "Dewey" Miller
We're sad to say that on May 27, 2016 we had to say goodbye to Dewey. He truly was the sweetest little guy you could ever hope to meet and my clients just loved seeing his cute face whenever they came to train at OSF. Most Miniature Pinschers can be quite high strung, but Dew was super chill. Dew had a tough go of it the first five years of his life because of abuse and neglect that left him with a neurological disorder that eventually got the best of him, I'm happy to say that the last 7 years of his life were filled with lots of love and happiness though. I like to think he won Puppy Powerball the day he was rescued because he really did live the life of Reilly...deservingly so.
