About Dawn

As a professional trainer, my passion is to guide you towards a healthier lifestyle. Everybody is unique, with their own strengths and limitations. My method is to build a custom plan based on your health, schedule and more importantly, fitness goals. I aim to transform your body and influence you to make more mindful decisions when it comes to your health. As a former NPC bikini competitor I know what it feels like to be on the other side of the training dimension. If you train hard there is no limits to what you can accomplish. Aside from being a Certified Personal Trainer, I'm also a Ace certified Nutrition Specialist and currently working on obtaining my GFI certification. I also have certificates in CPR/First Aid for adults and children, Flexology (assisted stretching), Zumba, Strong by Zumba and pre/post natal training. Continued education is very important to me and I hope to add many more certifications in the near future. ? When I'm not training I'm a mom to three beautiful children and two fur babies.
