As a lifelong resident of St. Joe, Kari loves lake front activities, and recently took her passion to the water learning SUP.

Crazy busy as a wife and mother of three active kids, Kari is also the varsity coach of the Lakeshore Poms Team. “Passion and energy drive both my personal life at home and professional life at Maddog 5/1”.

Taking on the challenge of becoming a Maddog trainer came as a natural step.  A client since 2015, Kari quickly found a familiar energy and passion in the Maddog trainers who inspired her to work harder, and she wanted more! “My passion for fitness drives me, joining the  Maddog  family changed my life, first as a client, now as a Trainer.

Kari teaches RealRyder, Fierce 5/1, Fierce Circuit , Bike RR Barre and jumping in where ever needed! “My #1 goal as a trainer is to deliver an energetic and challenging workout every time. I want clients to feel proud of themselves when they leave, and with a desire to come back for more.”

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

As the founder and owner of Maddog 5/1, Revolutionary Fitness, Marydawn ~AKA Maddog~  built the studio that was missing from the community of fitness in the area.  A place that everyone felt welcome, everyone felt challenged and everyone felt the passion that was shared by the  Maddog Crew at the studio.  This one of a kind fitness experience is  a culmination of the 20+ years Marydawn spent motivating, inspiring and training everyday people to live healthier happy lives!
    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!
