My name is Aimee Sinopoli, and I am the owner of Cutting Edge Fitness & Martial Arts Center. I started my fitness journey in 2009 but in 2014 I decided it was time for me to start helping others achieve their goals and help them with overcome the health and wellness struggles that I knew all too well. I've tried every diet there is and my weight has fluctuated over the last 30 years but I have emerged on the other side,
When training clients, I use my skills, experience and my journey to help them achieve their health & wellness goals. I care about my clients, and there's nothing more important to me than helping someone go through an experience that makes them happy, confident and strong.
I want to help you discover the benefits of training that have helped me become the person I've become and I am here to support you every step of the way.

Christine Meiklejohn is the instructor for Uechi-Ryu karate. She began practicing this style when she was 5, and took the classes with my grandfather, William Meiklejohn. She began helping him teach classes when she was 15 and proudly got my 1st degree black belt in 2008 at the age of 18. She continued working hard and was able to pass my 2nd degree black belt test in 2011. Christine is excited to share this style with everyone as it has been a huge part of my life. It isn't easy, and it isn't quick but it is definitely worth it.
Christine is also one of our Women's boxing and PLYOGA instructors and you can find her teaching a Spin class here and there.
I always thought I was healthy, I exercised on a regularly basis and was careful of the foods I took in. At the age of 50 I decided to take up running, my first goal was a 5k which progressed to a half marathon, now I have a goal to run a half marathon in every state. I have also completed two marathons and three triathlons.Three years ago, my knee started to give me trouble and I really wanted to work on strengthening my core. A friend encouraged me to check out a spin class or other classes at Cutting Edge Fitness. I reluctantly went, I don’t like going to gyms. Fast forward, it has been four years since I first stepped into Cutting Edge Fitness, I started out twice per week and gradually moved to five days per week taking various classes they have to offer. Attending Cutting Edge Fitness is one of the best decisions I have made to improve my overall health, Aimee, David and the staff encourages me to do my best, provide helpful strategies to meet my goals. I am so inspired by the people who work at Cutting Edge Fitness. I decided to earn my spin certification. I am grateful to my friend who suggested Cutting Edge Fitness.

My name is Julie. I joined the Cutting Edge Fitness family with two goals in mind: to build a solid framework for a healthy lifestyle that I can maintain and to teach my daughters the importance of a healthy lifestyle that they will mimic and maintain as they grow into adults. I initially began by taking Spin classes and grew to love the Boxing, Strength, and Bootcamp classes as well. I have earned Spin certification thanks to the encouragement and support of Aimee and others at Cutting Edge and I hope to be as inspiring a person as the team there has been for me.
