Hello, I’m Dawn, the Manager at U.S. Fitness. I’m the voice on the phone when you call, and the welcoming committee when you arrive.  My background began with a love for sports and the fitness required to play to the best of my ability. Later I enjoyed leading spinning classes, but now my focus is more towards muscle maintenance, flexibility and bone density.

The best part of my day is watching the changes  in our clients as they gain self-confidence through reaching their goals and inspiring others that are newer to the gym environment.

Oddly, people thank me for the changes they have made for themselves. Here at U.S. Fitness, we encourage and motivate, I guess that really is my job, and I love it.

Hello, my name is Kathleen Wellcome. I am a Fitness Instructor at U.S. Fitness, with 18 years experience in training and teaching classes.  In 2011, I became fully certified in a specialty class, which also enables me to teach group classes.  It has been my goal to work with clients with a more personalized touch, using my skills to contribute to the heart of the individual as well as their physical well-being.

It is my passion to help others as I continue to teach at U.S. Fitness. I feel blessed and honored to work as an instructor and will continue to give my very best to each and every person who walks in the door wanting more for themselves.


Hello, my name is Paulina, and I work the front desk as well as instruct Bootcamp classes here at U.S. Fitness. I have been working here for seven years and instructing for five. Fitness became my passion when I started attending classes here at this gym back in 2014 and experienced the comradery between instructors and students, as well as the family feel and environment all around. I could say this gym is my second home.
Want to try a challenging yet totally achievable class? Come try one of my boot camp classes. We do full-body training, circuit style. By using bodyweight exercises, cardio activities, resistance, weights, and drills, you will be sure to get a good workout every time. You can go at your own pace, which is what makes it easier to follow. Classes are 40 minutes so make sure to bring water to stay hydrated and a towel to wipe down the sweat!
