Coming off of active duty in Korea, Patrick “Pat” S. Lydon, Army Medic, wanted to contribute something to the community and stay active in fitness. He helped open the first FitWorx location in Pembroke three years ago and continued to help the company grow. He has been named Assistant Area Director for the entire group which now includes not only Pembroke, but Weymouth, Easton and West Roxbury locations as well.
A Quincy resident and Braintree native, Lydon is a graduate of Braintree High School and earned an Exercise Science degree from Quincy College. He also achieved American Council of Exercise certification as a personal trainer. He captained the lacrosse team and lettered in football as Braintree High School.
“I had always been involved in sports and fitness,” noted Lydon. He added, “I saw that baby boomers and others were looking to get back in shape and were in need of better instruction and programming. I was drawn to the FitWorx philosophy of losing weight and building muscle via three 30-minute strength-training workouts per week and a high protein diet. Working one on one with members, it has been gratifying to be part of something that is transforming the lives of the 85 percent of the American public who hate to workout.”
FitWorx, the “non-gym” solution for a healthy lifestyle and weight loss with four locations in Massachusetts, supplements that effort by offering high quality, great tasting protein snacks and meal replacement shakes.
