An Athlete’s Perspective:

“Dawn gets you where you want to be in life. Sometimes swimming, biking and running don’t even have to be involved.” – Monica Caban

“Since having Dawn as my coach this year I have made amazing improvement in triathlon and Ironman. She has taken the time to get to know me and understands the fitness goals I want to accomplish. There is no better coach I could ask for and I look forward to working with her for many years.” – Herb Abrams

“In 3 years of coaching, Dawn has turned this tentative beginner into a confident athlete by believing enough in me to make me believe in myself.” – Kris Cordova

“But she will take you as close to the edge as you are willing to go as well. She is my coach. And I know when the start gun is fired – as long as I’ve done what she’s asked of me – I’m gonna have a great day that changes you for the rest of your life. You pay her money for her coaching. What she gives you in return is priceless.” – Dr. Nick Milnor
