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.

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 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.”
    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!
