I NEEDED TO GET STRONG.
By the time I turned 50 I’d had 2 major back surgeries along with surgeries to repair arthritis damage in both wrists. I knew by the time I reached retirement a wheelchair was going to be in my future. That was not going to happen. I needed to get strong. I needed some help. Searching for a personal trainer was easy, Louise came highly recommended. Fast forward, I am now nearing 60 and not only am I not in a wheelchair but through my work with Louise I am the strongest I have ever been. The only aches and pains I have are from Louise making me do one more round!
Fitness in a gym can be fun. But experiencing the fitness you want and need to live a life of your choosing; that’s golden.
Whatever you love to do – travel, golf, boating, gardening, cycling, diving, hiking, running – you need strength and mobility to stay pain and injury-free.
The aches and pains that you may associate with aging or genetics are often side-effects of daily living; our work, a previous injury, or poor posture or mechanics. Your body is resilient, and fitness is for everyone.
Dauntless is a small, private, personal training studio. It’s a wonderful community of people all seeking their personal best – one workout at a time. Here, at your pace, you’re invited to challenge your assumptions of what you’re capable of.

We started as weekend warriors, to get strong and work out with a community. We felt fortunate to add two more workouts each week with Louise, who designed opportunities to fit our new environment. We work out with a fun, dedicated group. It’s a lifestyle we love, and it enables and inspires all of our other adventures.

I sought help from a professional because I didn’t know where to start. I wanted to get healthier and wasn’t sure how to go about it. Louise listens and believes that you can accomplish anything if you work at it. I think that Louise loves seeing the positive change that comes with hard work. I think – no, I know she is very proud of her clients.

“You have my utmost respect. You have helped me so much and I am so much further along than I was a year ago. I never would have believed at my age I could do what I am doing. I really look forward to my workouts to push myself harder than the week before. ”

“How I describe Louise? Motivational, appropriately challenging, current in techniques and information, and positive and encouraging to achieve appropriate goals. Your messages are clear and consistent. I know that I can get a great, challenging (but not impossible) workout. You almost intuitively know how far to push so that we can succeed. You help me achieve more and live better. ”

Working with Louise has helped me develop great physical and mental strength, giving me the confidence to participate in some awesome experiences, including the 56-mile bike leg of the Savageman Half-Ironman. As a mentor Louise has taught me that more than anything else it’s about the choices we make. My choice has been to take life’s difficulties and use them as stepping stones. Taking challenges with a positive attitude has shown me a better place.

I worked with Louise for many years and it was an amazing period of personal growth. She is focused on helping her clients embrace change effectively and on owning their choices. If you’ve reached that point where you’re ready to make a change, to overcome obstacles, to think, eat, or act differently then get ready; she’ll help you move.

I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Not an easy thing to hear at my relatively young age of 50. I asked the doctor for 6 months to lower my blood sugar by changing my lifestyle. I realized Louise could help me. We worked together on a food and exercise plan. She asked me tough questions that made me examine my life. My results are completely mind blowing! I’ve lost 70 lbs, 50 in, and my blood sugar is completely acceptable. My doctor was floored! Louise has patiently, gently, and with a wealth of knowledge helped me come this far. My goal is to LIVE!

Over the years and even through aches and breaks, Louise has kept me active and strong. Thanks to her I enjoy an active retirement which includes scuba diving and volunteering on behalf of animals. I cannot imagine what my life would be like without Louise as my trainer.
– Sue Y.
At our first workout I struggled, I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t complete most of the sets or even do some of the exercises. I committed to myself that I was going to get fit. My life has been impacted in so many positive ways by my commitment to take a chance. I feel very fortunate and honored to have found Louise. She pushes you to your next level and helps you reach YOUR fitness goals. Louise is the trainer for you if you have an open mind and believe that you can, however large or small the change.
– Dr. Patricia Rohman
My husband and I work with Louise, and through her efforts we are both much more fit and active…playing golf and hiking. We highly recommend her. (She’s also worked with us to eat a healthier diet!)

Louise teaches, supports and guides her clients towards increased strength and overall improvement in health. She has incredible knowledge about body mechanics and is able to modify each workout to meet my needs. The individual attention and supportive environment have led me to stick to the program and actually look forward to working out. A first for me!

My husband and I have experience with the larger gyms and wanted a more personal approach. Louise has been wonderful; professional, patient and sincerely interested in our personal goals for fitness. I highly recommend.
