Dawn is a wonderful trainer! She was accommodating to my goals and schedule, and helped me integrate increased physical activity into my life. Her workouts are tailored to your abilities and preferences in activity, and I really loved how she would send me encouraging texts to check up on me in between sessions. - Bridget Driessen

​Dawn is wonderful! She gets you moving and helps you find a routine that best fits your lifestyle. Dawn not only helps you find a routine, but also helps understand why those moves are important. She keeps you positive and continues to motivate you. I highly recommend Dawn!  - Hannah Koch

​Training with Dawn has been a very rewarding experience! She is very tuned in to what I needed personally to create a successful pattern for a new and healthier me! I loved that she was knowledgable, upbeat, flexible and generally always looking for that specific way to make my session overall advantageous to my growth. You can just tell that she loves what she does and her enthusiasm and dedication are contagious. Fitness/exercise and food choices have been my weakness, in the past. Dawn has helped me, tremendously, to take a serious look at an overall picture of the benefits of making positive choices. This has helped me to stay focused and committed to being the best ME possible. Thanks Dawn for all that you do, I appreciate YOU and your expertise and personal commitment to my goals.  -   Barb Rotundo 

Client Testimonials

Patient and very encouraging, she has customized exercise sessions for me for each visit, targeting weak areas, stretching tights spots, and increasing my capacity to the max! Dawn even customized a regimen while I was on vacation--sending me positive texts and offering incentives. Very capable and astute at finding and stretching out weak muscles, she goes down to the basics and always gets a full workout, even without machines, combining my own weight and balance to ensure a fully toned and strong body. - Candice Fleming

What I Do

My passion is to help people live healthy and love it.  I believe health is not a club (see what I did there...) but a product of a life style that maintains a balance between activity, wise food choices, and joyful interactions.
