Dauntless is a private training studio – a great community of people all working towards their personal best.
In 2013, after more than a decade at a large athletic club, I partnered with Beth Stewart and we opened Dauntless Fitness & Health in Severna Park. We wanted to work with our clients in a smaller, more private setting. Along with several other talented trainers, we worked with hundreds of people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.
The global pandemic in 2020 brought uncertainty of unknown depth and longevity, so we made the really tough decision to close the studio. As a silver lining, online training took off, and we did hundreds of Zoom sessions with our clients. (Amazing what you can do with just your bodyweight!)
A new version of Dauntless opened at a new location in Arnold. In our “new normal”, I continue to work with clients both online and in the studio.
In fitness as in life, adaptability is essential. You can’t stop the waves but you can learn to surf.
The original Dauntless was a sailboat. Over two summers in my early teens, I sailed around Cape Cod and the coast of Maine. I remember nothing about how to sail a boat, but the lessons in teamwork, collaboration, and problem solving landed. I learned to attempt things I didn’t think I could do – things that scared me.
Life lessons. For sure, those experiences led to Dauntless Fitness.
