Timothy K. CPT - Founder/Coach
With over a decade of experience in pursuing a life of health and wellness, Tim has personally trained hundreds of individuals and invested thousands of hours.

Erin B. CPT - Coach/Instructor
Erin grew up active, like most kids she played several sports and therefore was moving all year long. Not until college did she have to actively start finding time to work fitness into her life. And not until she entered the “real world” did she begin to take her personal fitness seriously.
Being a positive outlet from her standard 9-5 job, she decided to pursue a personal training degree with the National Academy of Sports and Medicine. Erin quickly realized she was inspired and energized by others and pursued group fitness training to go above and beyond just one-on-one coaching.
Erin is currently the global social media manager at Withings, a connected health tech company, she teaches classes to her coworkers as well as instructs classes around Boston with Dare U Fitness. She believes fitness and pursuing a healthy lifestyle shouldn’t rock your world. It’s about a series of little changes that will add up to some pretty dramatic healthy results.
JAGMEET S. CPT - COACH/INSTRUCTOR
For Jagmeet, fitness is a means of understanding life. Coming from a background in restaurant management he was surrounded by what he saw as overstressed, unhealthy people stuck in a counterproductive lifestyle. To keep himself sane in a toxic work environment he dedicated all his free time to exploring movement and fitness.
The progress that he achieved over the course of the ensuing three years not only caused a change in his body and athleticism but also had a significant affect on his ability to think, stay relaxed, and process information. It became clear that optimizing the mind was only possible if the vessel was working at it's best as well.
This revelation was a paradigm shift for Jagmeet. He now strives towards bringing his fitness to a peak and gaining a deep understanding of the human body down to the chemical and molecular level so that he can teach others what he has seen himself.
