Meet Our Fitness Trainers in Conshohocken & Philadelphia


Matt Ramey

Owner/Operator

Years in the industry: 12 years


Why you love fitness/PIT: 

PIT began in a local park with only a few pieces of equipment and an intense mindset on how to push people to their limits with each workout and always deviating from the norm. PIT is unique and original.Playing college football to working as a Deputy Sheriff helped me develop the format of the workout into what it is today! Our classes are team based and our training is functional and mostly sports specific even if you’re an athlete or not.  Its the best way to get any client results.

Favorite type of training/favorite movements: 

Personally my favorite types of movements are compound exercises such as dumbell snatchs, tireflips, keg slams and deadlifts. Its what works best for me to achieve my own results.

Why you love fitness/PIT: 

Being the owner of PIT I still to this day enjoy instructing class and training clients, that look our clients give you after a session, class or training says it all. They know they just finished the best workout they’ll ever do!


Patrick Williams

Owner/Operator

Years in the industry: 12 years

Favorite type of training/favorite movements: 

I like to mix all types of training together. Powerlifting/bodybuilding/strong man training and Olympic lifting movements, combined with cardio/bodyweight/core exercises. Two of my favorite movements are Barbell squats and Bulgarian split squats. 

Favorite PIT Class to instruct and to take:

My favorite class to instruct is my Thursday 6 am class in Conshohocken. 
I love taking any class by any of the instructors we have our training staff we have is INCREDIBLE. But, hands down my favorite class to take right now is 11:30 am coed Friday in East Falls with Enjoli Segneri. We have a great group of people that come to that class. 


Why you love fitness/PIT: 

I grew up an overweight, unathletic kid. I started lifting weights in my basement when I was 14, and reading bodybuilding magazines. Lifting weights and exercising helped me build confidence, and taught me hard work and discipline. The reason I love PIT is the group/team based atmosphere that our workout promotes. As a bigger guy, I never liked doing “cardio”, but with the constant changing of stations, and the fun/loud atmosphere of our group classes has helped me get into, and stay in, the best shape of my life for over the past 10 years. 

When I’m not at the gym:

I can usually be found;At home with my Wife, and my Fur Children Frosty and Phoebe.

Interests/hobbies:
Reading, playing the drums, listening to music, sneakers, tattoos, and eating ALLLLL the food. 


Phil B.

Years in the Industry: 5 years

Why you love fitness/PIT:

I love PIT because it’s an atmosphere I look forward to going to everyday. I can honestly say working here for the last couple of years, witnessing the turnaround in client confidence, body changes, and strength is rewarding for me. My bosses / coworkers are awesome and we have a great time working together. We are all positive, funny, and outgoing people who feed off of watching the people around us get healthier and reach their goals

In 7th grade I started working out with a personal trainer for sports which I continued throughout high school. This opened me up to speed training, strength training, and functional mobility training. Working with these experienced and variety of techniques brought the most out of myself. I now use those techniques and my prior experience to help my clients grow, gain knowledge and learn how to discipline themselves.

Favorite type of training/favorite movements:

Deadlift. Bench.

When i’m not at the gym:

Playing the role as the coolest uncle to my 3 nieces and 2 nephews


Liv f.

Years in the industry: 1 year

Favorite type of training/favorite movements: 

I am a huge fan of resistance training and have been working on getting stronger each day. My favorite day at the gym is when I get to work my back. Though lifting heavy weights is fun, flipping tires and swinging sledge hammers in a PIT coed class never fails to make me break a sweat.

Favorite PIT Class to instruct and to take:

My favorite class though has to be Audra’s DB Compound circuit, try it out if you haven’t already.

When I’m not at the gym:

You can find me at the library working toward my long term career goal of being a Sports Medicine physician!


Danielle D.

Personal Trainer/Nutritionist


Bachelor’s of Science–Nutrition and DieteticsIndiana University of Pennsylvania–2008
Associate’s in Applied Science–Health and FitnessMontgomery County Community College–2013

  • NETA
  • CPTACE
  • Group FitnessACE
  • Fitness Nutrition Specialist

  • CPR/AED


Why you love fitness/PIT:

Danielle has been a Personal Trainer and Nutritionist since 2013. She started working at a YMCA in Pittsburgh, Pa, until she moved back to the Philadelphia area in 2014 (Philly is home!) Since then, she has taught a variety of different fitness classes and absorbed numerous hours of personal training experience since then. She has completed numerous 5ks, 10ks and the Tough Mudder in 2013. She has also been coaching and teaching nutrition clients for the past five years, teaching them the “why’ food is important, how food works, and how to properly prepare meals to keep accountable during the busy week.


Nutrition has always been an important part of her fitness goals, as well as for her clients. She believes ‘sustainable’ nutrition for the long run will continue to push your fitness goals forward for years to come–there is no quick fix to achieve goals. It is about consistency and hard work; no matter how much you work in the gym, it is impossible to get to where you want to be without proper nutrition to accompany the gym. You can still enjoy what you like, just everything in moderation! There are no ‘diets’ with Danielle. Just consistent meals paired with a badass fitness routine.


Katie W.

Years in the industry: 3 years

Why you love fitness/PIT: 


As a coach my goal is to have the most positive impact on the lives of the people that I work with; helping them become the healthiest, happiest, highest performing versions of themselves. This goes way beyond helping people look the best that they ever have, that’s a GIVEN, this also covers mindset, nutrition, motivation and lifestyle.


I’ve been a coach since 2019 but my love for fitness and living an active lifestyle began when I was a teenager. My fitness journey has taken me on one wild ride! I’ve gained training in body building, nutrition, mindset, olympic lifting, HIIT, and most recently, women’s bikini fitness competitions.
I strongly believe that our health and performance isn’t something we complete. It’s an ongoing, ever evolving process. The motivation comes from within. No one can hand it to you, but no one can take it away either.

Why you love fitness/PIT: 


I’ve always loved playing and watching sports. I liked going to the gym, but learned to develop a passion for it, learned to love it.
