Dawn is a certified and licensed Medical Fitness Practitioner specializing in clinical fitness and nutrition, and began to spread the message of
feeling great in one’s own body to her own students. Dawn holds several other certifications in wellness coaching, personal training, group fitness, nutrition, sports nutrition training, stress eating, and self-coaching.
Dawn Wells’ love of physical activity has been a mainstay of her life. As a youth, it propelled her to participate in various school sports including track and cheer. It also led her to proudly serve in both the U.S. Marine Corp Active Duty and Army Reserves. As she moved into the next chapters of her life, exercise became a vital aid in helping Dawn achieve a deeply personal sense of fitness and well-being.
Following a diagnosis of binge eating disorder (BED) and bulimia, Dawn began to reclaim wellness through the discovery and practice of Zumba. Along her health journey, she came to the realization that physical strength and vitality is not a one-size-fits-all phenomenon but rather looks and feels differently for each individual. Dawn learned that personal fitness begins with health of mind and spirit.
Today Dawn remains committed to both physical and mental health through DWF Wellness which empowers lifelong healthfulness in clients with its revolutionary Wellness Systems. These innovative systems help clients receive, learn and permanently adopt the science of nutrition, exercise and weight management. She also founded the nonprofit Angel Eye Fitness and Nutrition which specializes in tailored group fitness and nutrition counseling for the blind and low vision.
