Born and raised in a small town near Toledo, Ohio, Brittni has been a Saint Joe resident since 2012 and a certified yoga instructor since 2016.

Residing in northern California, Brittni fell in love with yoga in 2010 while living next to a yoga studio! “I was marathon training and thought yoga would be great for my cross training and stretch days,” says Brittni. “It has since helped me find balance both mentally and physically in my everyday life.  Brittni has completed six full (26.2) marathons and several half marathons. As an athlete, Britt is able to communicate the practice of yoga to Maddog clients without the intimidation factor many athletes feel. Her all-level classes focus on alignment, balance, breath, cranking up the heat, and fun music!

 Britt holds a  Masters Degree in International Business and works full-time in marketing.  In her free time, she loves being outdoors, international travel, hiking, running, and all things adventure.

Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas

Jami was born and raised in St. Joseph; a  relocation to  Denver is where  and when  Jami  fell in love with fitness - barre classes and anything "boot camp" are  among my  favorites. As beautiful as Colorado is, I missed my family in St. Joe and the ever beautiful Lake Michigan, I returned home to be near family and the Lake. My husband and I have a combined team of  4 kids between us that range in age from  8 to 15 and  boy do they  keep us on the go! My first class   as a client at Maddog 5/1 was FireBarre 5/1 and I was hooked. I started training with Marydawn within days of taking my first  class. I love teaching Bike RR  Barre, FireBarre, and the Fierce 5/1 classes. We have the best team and the most amazing clients who push me to be a better Trainer. We are all so much stronger than we think and I see it every day in classes that I teach!

Kristi and her pup Olive have  added some boys to the household since the last Maddog bio years ago.  Husband  Derek and a sibling for Olive named Stanley  have joined the family!

      Originally from Toledo Ohio, Missy moved to SW Michigan in late 2010 and never looked back – she loves living, working and exercising in this beautiful community. Missy is a workout fanatic and is an AFAA certified Group Ex instructor. She also holds certifications in Real Ryder, TRX and Shockwave. When asked what her favorite thing to teach is, Missy replies “everything”! You can find her on the schedule in the early morning, at noon or in the evening on any given day.  She thinks the best thing about Maddog 5/1 is the unique atmosphere – it’s a true community where both the trainers and the clients they serve want the very best for each other and work very hard to make that happen. Outside of Maddog Missy is an empty nester but stays busy running the First Choice program for Cornerstone Alliance.
