CLINTON — Professional athletes depend on being fit to make their living.

Now you can train like professional athletes … right in Clinton.

Ciccone Family Fitness, of 45 High St., has teamed with Jeremy Frisch, of Achieve Performance Training, to offer individualized training that also works for groups.

The program was launched a month ago, and is so successful that Dennis Ciccone said they need to expand it to meet the “overwhelming response.”

Frisch said bringing this program to his hometown of Clinton is a “dream come true.”

Frisch, a former football, basketball and track athlete at Clinton High School, graduated from Worcester State College with a bachelor's degree in health education and physical education. After college, he worked for the Sports Club LA in Boston as a personal trainer. He then completed an internship in strength and conditioning at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif.
