Ruff House Fitness is a small group fitness studio comprised of strength training, HIIT, RHF Spin and boxing classes that are designed to challenge your body and mind, while having fun at the same time. Here at Ruff House Fitness we want everyone to find the best version of themselves. We welcome people from all walks of life at any stage of their fitness journey from beginner to conditioned athlete.

ALICIA "LEESH" PIKE
Hi – I’m Alicia Pike. I’m an ACE Certified Personal Trainer with a specialty in Sports Performance and a Masters in Sport Management. I am also an amateur boxer with over 8 years of group and personal training experience. Over the years, I’ve taught everything from barre, spin, strength training, TRX, HIIT and boxing. I love high intensity workouts, especially boxing, and I’m excited to be able to share that love and passion with my Ruff House Fitness members.
My approach to fitness is that the prize is in the process. I believe in that so firmly that I’ve got it tattooed on my arm! Fitness is a journey. It should be something you enjoy, but that also challenges you. It takes time to reach goals, but the beautiful part of that is what you accomplish along the way – the successes that make you more confident, the failures that make you work even harder, the friendships you make, and the mental/physical challenges that push you to be the best version of yourself – whatever that may be.
In my classes, you’ll work hard, but you’ll have a lot of fun along the way & I just can’t wait to meet you to help you get to where you want to be!

Hi! I'm Erin Burtnyk. I am a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist based out of Worcester, MA with a lifelong passion for nutrition and fitness. I am devoted to teaching others a realistic, sustainable approach to food and nutrition that supports a healthy, active lifestyle. My goal is to help people foster a healthy relationship with food by learning to incorporate the foods they love. As a mom of two kids under 5, I understand that life can be crazy and unpredictable, and I am passionate about finding ways to include self-care through nutrition without sacrificing time with my family. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition with a minor in Psychology from UMass Amherst. I currently teach health education at Shrewsbury High School, where I have the opportunity to share my passion and enthusiasm for health and wellness to the school community. I am incredibly excited to work with Ruff House Fitness sharing the latest, evidence-based nutrition advice and support!
