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
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!
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.”
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.
