Dana Dobson

Applied Science in Personal Training Certificate
A.C.S.M. Personal Trainer Certified
Health & Wellness Coach, Wellcoach School of Coaching Certified


As a personal trainer I have learned how small successes can leads to major life changes. We are all on a journey. We are all fighting our own fight. It is my privilege to share this journey with my clients. The greatest joy I receive from wellness coaching is being a small part of the growth of self confidence and wellbeing that occurs as a person discovers that they can do it, they are strong. Wellness, weight loss and fitness are a second career for me. Because exercise and living a healthy lifestyle had such a huge impact on my own self esteem it became my passion to help others feel better about themselves. Certified since 2010, I believe I offer a fresh and wholehearted passion to help others be their best selves.
