After more than a decade working with clients at a large community athletic club, we created Dauntless to continue that work in a smaller, more private setting. Here, along with a select group of highly qualified fitness and health professionals, we can fully support our clients as they pursue their personal health and fitness goals.
Dauntless is a community of people committed to taking responsibility for their health and fitness. We’re not fanatics; we know that life ebbs and flows and some days are better than others. Life is short; have fun.
Dauntless is an attitude. It takes dedication to be healthy in today’s culture; to prepare our own food, to create and spend time within an actual community not just a virtual one, to get out of the chair or off the sofa and move more, to be creative with our lives and not simply reactive to the circumstances around us. These are choices we make every day that our culture doesn’t always prompt or support. It takes dedication, and sometimes a little courage too. But it’s that important; and that’s why we’re Dauntless.
We believe regular movement that you enjoy combined with fresh, healthy food is the basis of a strong, vital, healthy and happy life. We know from years of experience that there is no one approach that works for every person. We’ve all worked through the process of finding what works best for us as individuals and we practice it daily. Here at Dauntless, we help others find their fitness.
We have an amazingly talented group of professionals here. We’re sure you can find the perfect partner to help you achieve your personal goals.
