Meet Other Trainers
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
Growing up in St. Joseph, MI, Amy went off to college, moved around the country a bit, then met and married husband Dave. Fast forward to 2002, when she and her husband made the decision to settle in the area and raise their family that includes two kids and kitties to boot! Working out has been part of Amy’s life for as long as she can remember. A high school and college athlete, fitness has always been her passion. Amy always thought she wanted to be a fitness instructor, dating back to the aerobics classes she took, but it wasn’t until she joined Maddog 5/1 as a client that she realized her potential! “Maddog 5/1 has the best workouts around. When you come to our studio, you know you’re part of a family. People know your name and care that you are there,” explains Amy After a year of being a client at Maddog, Marydawn saw something in Amy that was special…and asked Amy if she wanted to be part of her team. The rest as they say is history. Amy teaches Fierce 5/1, Fierce Circuit, Yoga Ripped and RealRyder- and as a team player- whatever is necessary! Certifications include, AFAA Personal Trainer, AFAA Group Instructor, TRX, CPR.

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!
