Theresa Eppolito is the Owner of FHIIT Barre and Bodyworks and completed her leadership program in November 2019. Theresa's passion compels her to deliver a healthy outlet for clients to reach their goals. Her studio is an inviting space with good vibes that motivates and encourages clients to focus on themselves and not the 'stressors' of life. The power of movement drastically effects a persons mood, productivity, energy and overall health. Movement is not an option, in Theresa's opinion, but a necessity.

What skills or competencies did you enhance through the coaching process?
“Listening, responding, awareness of myself/stature/opinions/feelings/facts in various situations. How to read people better and try to communicate in a way they will relate.”
Share an example of a goal that you have realized as a result of coaching.
“Listening, relating and responding.”
What do professionals need to start anticipating as the change needed to be a strong leader?
“The ability to connect with people through clear communication.”
Describe Michael Sgro as a professional coach.
“So great. He lets your own personality shine through the leadership methods rather than forcing change. When change does occur, it happens genuinely. Some coaches focus and commiserate on problems that we all experience rather than teach us to step outside the box and analyze.”
Our mission is to coach extraordinary leaders and to develop empathy as a core competency. We work with business owners, nonprofit organizations, professionals, universities and community members who are facing challenges in their personal and professional effectiveness or want to reach their full capacity as a leader.
