With 12 years of experience in the fitness industry, Dory holds a Pure Barre- Level 3 and Group Fitness Certification. Through the years, Dory has taught various fitness classes, but Barre is her specialty.
Dory brings upbeat energy with lots of musical variety to each of her classes. She likes to include quick transitions and thorough verbal cues so that each participant understands what they should be working on to get the most out of the workout.

You can expect a full-body workout for all levels that is based around small isometric movements from a Barre class with Dory. This class will typically include lifting weights for the upper body, barre work for the lower body, and some floor work using other modalities such as a ball or resistance band to get a truly effective workout.
In her free time, Dory loves to travel and spend time with family and friends. She is also a huge music lover, loves live music, and plays the tambourine. She has played with many local bands in San Diego. Dory believes in being healthy and feeling good about yourself and loves to help people achieve their fitness goals!
