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

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.
    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!

Look for Ciara at Maddog 5/1 teaching RealRyder, Barre, and Team 5/1 classes. When not at Maddog her hobbies are camping, hiking, traveling, and cooking with her husband and children.   Ciara is AFAA Group Exercise Certified,
