Meet the Owner:
I created DPT in 2010 with a mission to help people see their true potential, using fitness as the vehicle for that confidence and growth. I also wanted to build upon the foundation of creating a little better place in the world, starting with this training family.
When I’m not in the gym coaching, training or working with my clients and team, I lives in Dracut with my husband Nick. I enjoy spending time with my nephews, Daniel and Matthew, reading, watching bio-pics and comedy specials.
Why I do what I do: I love seeing people succeed. Period. We all have so much more potential inside us than we realize and I have been lucky enough to have amazing coaches who have pulled that out of me. I push every day to help people realize their own potential, build their confidence and ultimately make the world a better place with happier and stronger people.

Meet the Coaches:
Emily Boynton- Director of Nutrition, Coach
I have been a coach at DPT since 2011.
I train at DPT because of the people, their potential, and the FUN. We laugh, we sweat and we do work, lots of it.
Working in the environment where you get to see people over comes obstacles and challenges their limits, makes getting out of bed (even at 3am) easy.
I am not about the push ups or the six-packs. Those are the end results and they are great but I’m about the journey to get there. The journey, the struggle that builds resilience, strength and confidence.
I want people to feel alive, enthusiastic about why they are and confident. Exercise can literally transform lives. I believe in my clients, their ability to change, grow and accomplish great things.
When people start thinking about being limitless and let go of their limiting beliefs, their body health and happiness opens up and I want a front row seat to see it.
I lost someone that I love because they didn’t know how to take care of themselves. They could not get healthy, could not move and they lost their battle. I work every day to help prevent anyone else from going down this path. We all have a choice and I do what I do to get people to understand the power of that choice.
I work out to be the best version of me. I never ask clients to do anything that I don’t demand of myself. I hate workouts sometimes and love them on other days. But I understand that they all count when I put in the time, sweat and effort.
At heart I will always be a chubby little fat girl but for an hour or two I can put her away and set a new expectation of my body. My workouts provide mental clarity, toughness and stress relief.
I live in Derry, NH with my husband Adam, son Benjamin and dog Emit.
Erin Whipple- Project Manager, Coach
I enjoy helping others. Having grown up with a nurse as a mother, I have always wanted to help people like she does every day. I specifically like helping people with their fitness and nutrition goals.
I also love competing. Sports have always been a big part of my life. I have found being a part of a team in order to succeed is rewarding. Reaching personal goals is great, but helping others tackle their own goals is definitely a driving force for me.
Along with fitness, I am a firm believer in proper nutrition. I realized in college that I needed to do more for my body to stay in shape other than just exercising. It’s important to keep your body healthy both inside and out.
This former small town Vermont girl is a lover of burpees, black labs and friendly people. I am excited to be a part of such a great team.
Justine Waage- Head Coach/Program Design, Coach
Fitness was always a part of my life even before I was old enough to participate in organized sports. As a kid, it was normal to spend Saturday mornings at the local track or park watching my parents run laps, climb the bleachers or do push ups. They set a great example for my sister and I by living healthy, active lives and that led to my love of sports and all types of fitness.
I graduated from Keene State College in 2011 with a degree in Exercise Science. Since then, I have coached a wide
variety of people, children as young as 7 years old to adults 70+ years old and everyone in between - including Division 1 college athletes and adults who have never exercised a day in their life.
No matter where you start, fitness is about doing your best and accomplishing goals you may have previously thought were out of reach. I’m here to remind you that they are within reach, and we can even have fun in the process of attaining them! I am grateful to be able to help others on their journey!
I am originally from Westwood, New Jersey. I moved to Boston 3 years ago and have lived in Charlestown ever since.
