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.
Backed by the science of post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), our heart-rate monitored training is designed to keep heart rates in a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy. Our clients burn an estimated 500 to 1000 calories per workout. We are 5 zone heart-rate interval training.
Working out in a group provides accountability and structure to help achieve fitness goals. You are more likely to get a great workout and better results from the well-rounded movements and pace direction you get in a group setting. The session motivates each other to pick up the pace and reach beyond plateaus. People who workout in groups stick to their goals more consistently than those that workout alone.
