MEET OUR FITNESS TEAM
Rose, Boot Camp Coach
Rose was active growing up, but it wasn't until she became involved in martial arts that she became interested in fitness. When she began to teach martial arts, she quickly found that she enjoyed helping people develop their self confidence and improve their physical fitness and flexibility. With this in mind, Rose pursued a personal training certification, to better help people attain their fitness goals and lead happier and healthier lives.
Cassie, Boot Camp Coach
Cassie has been always led an active lifestyle. She took dance lessons since age 3, and she ran varsity cross country in high school. In college, she started taking classes for math education, but soon realized her true passion was in health and fitness. She wanted to help others by teaching them how the body works and how to slow the aging process by eating and exercising appropriately, specifically per individual. She began choreographing hip-hop routines for GVSU’s Dance Troupe and signed up for extra-curricular activities such as rock climbing, aerobics, strength training, racquetball, and modern dance. She completed her internship in Cardiac Rehab and Stress Testing and soon began her career as a rehab trainer where she has been for the past 3 years. She loves tailoring workouts for individual training and group training because they are completely different and keeps her on her toes and continuing to come up with new and exciting exercise routines. She loves teaching Zumba ® Fitness classes and has ran many 5ks, 10k, and the Detroit Half Marathon twice. She teaches six classes a week in addition to MIABC, runs, bikes, plays softball, and choreographs/dances for a professional dance company. She believes eating small nutritious meals, working out at least an hour a day, and engaging in daily, fun, dynamic activities is the key to improving quality of life and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Dawn, Boot Camp Coach
Dawn was introduced to fitness at an early age. Her father worked out daily in the basement of their Michigan family home. Eventually she was given her own weights and encouraged to workout with him.
She misplaced those healthy lifestyle tips her father gave her and she began to gain weight. She looked in the mirror one day and was discouraged at what she saw. She had reached a size 13/14 and weighed 170 pounds; felt tired, run down, and unhealthy.
It was time to take action! She began her journey back to eating right and exercising. Part of her journey led her to sign up for a Chicago boot camp, which she stuck with for 3 years. It took some time, but with determination she reached her fitness goals. Feeling healthy and energized, she wanted to inspire others to reach their fitness goals as well.
Dawn became a nationally certified personal trainer and has trained in Chicago and Arizona for the past decade. She helped manage two fitness studios and was in charge of running the personal training program at both studios. She also operated her own very successful boot camp in a town called Ahwatukee in Arizona for 4 years. Now she has teamed up with David to bring the Michigans Adventure Boot Camp program to the ladies of Clarkston and the surrounding area.
She has put together a program to keep you motivated, challenged, help build self confidence, as well as increase your strength and endurance. You will also be a part of a supportive environment that encourages having F-U-N!
“Do you want to feel better, look better and reach your fitness goals? If you said yes, then set aside one hour a day to make that happen for yourself! You can do it if you just take that first step! Come on ladies…wake up, work out and enjoy life!” ~ Dawn
