The Brookline Team

As much as the equipment and space matters, we get that a big part of delivering on “Fitness is Personal” is how well tuned our staff is to member needs. That’s why we work especially hard to recruit the best of the best; staff and trainers who are truly passionate about fitness and ready to “go to the mat” in order to help you achieve your goals. We encourage you to come meet the team and get their perspective on what it means to be a part of the BodyScapes community.

 

Alyssa Valmas
General Manager

Alyssa is a native of Brighton, MA. She comes to Bodyscapes with a strong customer service and computer science background. An avid health and fitness enthusiast, she enjoys running, swimming, biking, working out, and cooking vegetarian meals. In the evening she loves going to concerts and spending time with friends. Music has always been an important part of her life. In her downtime she reads, does puzzles, volunteers at a cat shelter, and — most importantly — plays with her own cat, a Maine Coon mix named Lily.

After overcoming a serious ankle injury, and more than four years with Bodyscapes, Alyssa was motivated to become an Indoor Cycling instructor in July of 2019. Come ride with her every Monday night at 6:30 PM!

Fitness Philosophy: “Cycling, Pilates, HIIT, and Tabata style Boot Camp classes as well as personal training are favorites. However, it’s most important that folks keep moving as much as possible, stay active, and maintain a healthy diet!”

He moved to Boston five years ago to attend Boston College, from where he recently graduated with a dual degree in Biology and Computer Science.
