Gabe Alpuerto

Meet Gabe! My name is Gabe Alpuerto and I’m a group fitness trainer at Renovate Fitness. I am a husband, father of three, and a grandfather of one.

Ever since I was really young, I’ve always been active.In high school I ran track and field.Even before I knew fitness was good for me, staying active and healthy was something that interested me.Working a full-time job as a test engineer for a defense contractor, I understand how difficult dedicating time to fitness and health can be, I knew I needed to stay active.That interest eventually turned into a passion, so I seeked more and wanted to help out others.I love assisting others become the best version of themselves, both physically and mentally.In 2003, I started teaching fitness classes at my work’s fitness center.I started to gain certifications in TRX and Spin, and instructed classes at multiple fitness centers in Southern New Hampshire.As a musician, I’m motivated by music and incorporate it into classes to keep you moving.Modifications are always available so that all levels are getting a good workout.

“The hardest part is getting through the door” – if you can do that, I promise you will be hooked. We’ll crank up the music and have fun.
