If you could sum up Dottie's approach to fitness in one word: passion. This comes from a belief that if you only have a small slice of time to exercise, you should make the most of it. Not only should it be fun, but intense!

Dottie got the group fitness fever when she discovered cardio kickboxing at a local gym and started to drop 40 pounds of baby weight. After seeing what group exercise could accomplish, she decided that she wanted to introduce others to group workouts that had helped her be successful. Dottie became certified to teach kickboxing, Les Mills Bodypump, TRX Suspension System and more. Dottie also helps people reach their goals with one-on-one instruction both locally and virtually using personal training certifications in AFAA, NESTA, and NFPT. But, Dottie is most proud of her work with Orangetheory Fitness and loves helping clients achieve the results they want.

I help busy people get active and eat better so they can get their health under control in a way that is sustainable and sensible. Plus, I am a certified Precision Nutrition Coach, one of the most respected organization in nutrition coaching worldwide.

I have been in the fitness industry for over 12 years. I started as a group exercise coach, coaching everything from cycling to boxing to pilates. I made the move to Personal Training in 2008 and then added a great nutrition certification to my tool belt.I take pride in helping clients find their way to their nutrition and fitness goals in a way that is sustainable and sensible.

    Dottie is everything I was looking for, all in one little package. She is patient and very knowledgeable. She helped me pinpoint my problem areas and kept me going and sweating which was very fulfilling to me. She is super understanding and is mindful about where you are in your fitness journey and works with you accordingly.
    I recommend her for her excellence and her ability to keep you going. She is positive and very helpful with questions about fitness. She helped me find strength, coordination and gave me a lot of knowledge about proper form. Loving those burbees.

    Looking forward to joining a group class she instructs. She is awesome.

    Dottie is everything I needed all in one nice little package. She is patient, very knowledgeable, helpful and understanding in the areas I needed extr help in. I was very comfortable with her and I always left the training sessions super sweaty and very fulfilled.
    I would recommend Dottie for her excellence and her ability to get to specific details custom for each person. She gave me the the knowledge and strength and determination I was looking for. She is a great trainer. She knows her stuff and she shares her knowledge.

    I can't wait to join her again in some future group classes.

    Dottie has been a great asset to my "gym life." Before I had kids I was a personal trainer, fit and in shape. After 2 high risk pregnancies and essentially not being able to exerciser for about 2.5 years straight I found myself struggling to get motivated to go to the gym. Through friends, I found that motivation. Started running. Ran a couple of half marathons, but still didn't feel strong. That's where Dottie has rocked it out! I've been with her for about 5 weeks now and I have lost fat, increased my muscle mass and started to gain back the strength confidence I once had. I can't wait to see where I am at the end of 2013 after spending a year with Dottie!

    Being overweight and out of shape, the idea of getting a personal trainer seemed intimidating, humiliating, and terrifying to me for a long time. I was embarrassed of how out of shape I was, the numbers that flashed on the scale, and the thought of having to tell someone how much I truly struggle with food made me feel like I didn't have a fight in the battle. I had gone on crazy diets that left me hungry and never truly losing any weight. I tried to work out on my own, but felt overwhelmed and clueless. However, when I met Dottie and was so impressed with who she is, and how UNintimidating she was to talk to... I decided to go ahead and book a personal training session with her. She took time to really listen to me as we chatted about my goals, my struggles, my fears...and she created a plan for me. She has really met me where I am in this journey to take control of my health and body, always encouraging and motivates me everyday. Her passion for health and fitness is evident. She is teaching me how to eat normal food, how to be in control of my eating and my body. She has opened a door for me to a new-found excitement for working out and getting sweaty. I LOVE it now (never ever thought I would say that!). She gets just as excited as I do when I see the numbers in the scale decrease, when I am able to go longer on the treadmill, or make it through a challenging day with my personal struggles with food.

    If you are looking for a trainer, or just even considering it, I could not recommend Dottie more. She has become a person that I truly value and trust. She is fun, full of life, encouraging and so incredibly wise and effective with her approach to personal health and fitness. Don't wait any longer...this will be the best decision that you ever make!
