• Megin Shepard, BS, CPT

    My name is Megin Shepherd. I am originally a valley girl, but now reside in East Haven with my husband Zach.

    I have always had a passion for athletics and helping people (and animals!) since I was a little girl. Whether it was gymnastics, soccer, or just trying to beat my brother in checkers everything was a competition.

    This passion for athletics and competition eventually led me to Southern Connecticut State University where I obtained my Bachelor’s of Exercise Science focusing in Human Performance. While pursuing my degree I began personal training and teaching CrossFit classes. This hands on experience truly inspired me to help clients achieve the best versions of themselves no matter what their age!

    In order to help clients achieve their goals I have completed my NASM certified personal trainer, CrossFit Level One certification, CrossFit Level Two certification, USA Weightlifting Level One Performance Coach, CrossFit Gymnastics Certification, Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support, and CPR/AED certified.

    Outside of Joint Effort I enjoy hanging out with my husband and dog Lulu, competing in CrossFit, laying on the beach, and napping.
