Living a healthier life so you have more life to live.

Welcome to Fitlosophy – a place for Health Coaching and Pilates



Life can be busy and stressful.  There are work and kid obligations, maybe you have aging parents, or you are the aging parent. Perhaps the current stress of the pandemic has taken over.  It is easy to let these things get in the way of taking care of yourself, and now you find yourself with a loss of energy and motivation, a few pounds overweight, and possibly not sleeping well.  It’s almost as if you have lost control of the one part of your life you should have control over.  I understand, and I can help.  I will help you achieve small attainable steps that will get you to your goal of regaining control.  I will help you return to energy and vitality.  I will help you return to you!  You now have someone to support you on your journey, to hold you accountable for the steps you want to take but aren’t sure how.  You now have someone who understands your struggle and knows how to help you out of it.

Meet Dawn

After hearing about Pilates for a few years and even working out on an in-home reformer, Dawn decided to attend her first Pilates class in 2005. Little did she know that her life would be changed that day and the path to Fitlosophy would begin.

About Fitlosophy

At Fitlosophy, Dawn’s knowledge of lasting behavior change techniques, nutrition, and exercise as well as her interests in Functional and Lifestyle Medicine, brings her clients a multi-point approach to wellness and lasting lifestyle change.  She believes that the power to change is in all of us, but changing lifelong habits and ways of being can be extremely difficult.  We all intuitively know when it is time to change, but that change can be so overwhelming that we never take the first step.  Dawn is here to help you navigate the path of change and encourage you along the way.  Health Coaching is convenient to your schedule.  Telehealth appointments are available as well as phone appointments.

Fitlosophy is also a fully equipped boutique Pilates and Wellness Studio that caters to private instruction and small group classes.  In this day and age, it can be a little scary to go to a big gym or studio.  Group classes are currently capped at 3 people to ensure social distancing and all equipment is cleaned in between clients and classes. Zoom mat classes are offered if that is more convenient or better suited to your location or schedule. Each person deserves hands-on, individualized instruction that caters to their unique physiology and needs. This can only happen in a private or small group setting. Dawn knows first hand the benefits of authentic Pilates instruction, and strives every day to provide the best instruction possible to her clients.


Fitlosophy is the real deal

“I enjoy Pilates more than any other exercise program I have ever tried. I have actually stayed committed to it for over two years and feel no desire to change. I have tried other Pilates studios, mat classes and tower classes at numerous fitness centers and private instruction, trust me they don’t compare. I have increased my muscle tone and have become more flexible since working with Dawn, owner of Fitlosophy.

Fitlosophy is the real deal, with Dawn being the most knowledgeable instructor I have found anywhere. Try it, and see for yourself, you won’t be disappointed. I know for me personally, it continues to be one of the best investments in my health and well being I have ever made. Dawn is amazing instructor.”

I would not be where I am today without the help of Dawn

“Dawn changed my life!  First, I will give a bit of background to explain how drastically Dawn helped me.  My husband and I were blessed with healthy, large (9lbs and 6.5lbs), full term twins.  The twin pregnancy caused a lot of damage to my torso and required me to have surgeries to repair my abdomen. I had considerable back pain and lost much of my abdominal strength, so much so that I couldn’t roll over in bed.  All of this while caring for newborn twins, our two year old daughter and a husband who traveled every week all week.  Enter Dawn…

Dawn spoke to me about Pilates and how much this form of exercise had helped her with her back.  I began meeting with Dawn on a weekly basis. Dawn tailored our sessions to my specific needs and worked within my hectic daily schedule.  Each week we met I noticed improvement and decreased back pain.  One night I rolled over in bed without sitting up!  I continued working with Dawn getting stronger and stronger.  I feel I would not be where I am today without the help of Dawn.  She was instrumental in my goal of getting back to a normal life and introducing me to a great form of exercise.”

I am stronger, more flexible and stand taller than ever before!

“I am 51 years old and have enjoyed learning the Pilates method from Dawn for over 4 years.  She is a passionate professional with a love for seeing people become healthy and strong.  I am stronger, more flexible and stand taller than ever before!  Her knowledge and experience enable her to take you at whatever level you are and elevate you to a place you never thought you could be.  Dawn is sensitive to every phase of your health and well-being.  She knows how to adjust each exercise and each workout to maximize the strength you have that day. You get exactly what you need based on your body and ability in every move.  That is the beauty of personalized training.  Pilates is a beautiful exercise that strengthens your body completely, gives you incredible flexibility, lengthens your muscles and gives you beautiful posture.  It takes an experienced professional, like Dawn, to teach the proper form to experience the maximum benefit."

–Kelly Williams

Dawn is simply awesome!

“Dawn is simply awesome! She helped “shape” my life in every sense of the word. She provided me with comprehensive and tailored nutrition advice and counseling, and offered the most personalized, challenging and thorough Pilates sessions I‘ve ever experienced. She is well practiced and knowledgeable in both mind and body fitness, and places important emphasis on their balanced integration. If you find yourself under her instruction in any forum, you’ve found Your Wellness Home!”
