Aimee Gallo is a personal trainer and Holistic Nutrition Coach certified through the American Council of Exercise and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. She has had a passion for nutrition for over 20 years and has recognized the importance of exercise in maintaining health for nearly as long.
Aimee’s interest in nutrition began at a very young age, and by age 15, she knew that nutrition and fitness was her passion and calling. Through her studies she came to understand that there was a definite link between what one puts in one’s body and how that body responds, and felt an urgent calling to receive the kind of education that was necessary to help people in search of wellness discover this for themselves.
Aimee received her personal trainer education through the University of Alaska and became nationally recognized through the American Council of Exercise. Certified since 2001, she has developed a focus of working with those who are new to exercise or returning from a lengthy hiatus. She takes great pleasure in assisting people in finding joy through movement and functional strength.

While at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, she also received a certificate in Integrative Nutrition through Columbia University Teacher’s College. Studying under such leaders as Andrew Weil, Walter Willett, Deepak Chopra, Geneen Roth and Barry Sears deepened her knowledge in dietary theories and treating the whole person. An appreciation of the importance of whole, unrefined foods and the necessity of incorporating these into the hectic American lifestyle is of utmost importance to her.
