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, daughter Ailen 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.
Ian Peck - Coach
My health and fitness journey started with my mother, a now retired nurse, and late grandfather, a former body builder. By their example, I came to really care about exercise and helping other people.
Putting those two things together, training others was the next natural step. So after a minor in Health & Fitness, some guidance from my exercise mentor - Dr. Anne Hays - and some independent study, I passed the American College of Sports Medicine personal trainer exam. Not long after, Callie found me and I've been happily coaching here at Durbrow Performance Training while I continue to learn and hone my skills.
I'm very passionate about helping individuals reach their goals so they can become that stronger, ideal version of themselves. Resistance training is my focus, and it isn't just for bodybuilders; it's for everyone. With it, we can live longer, more capable lives.
I live with friends in Malden MA, where I try to impart healthy habits on them and put their soda on top of the fridge so they have to work to get it.
