Results without Regrets

Welcome to Fitlosophy – A new way of thinking about Exercise, Nutrition, and Health in the greater Nashville, TN area.



Hi, I'm Dawn. I became very interested in fitness and nutrition close to 20 years ago. I tried many different ways of eating and many different types of fitness, always searching for the right one. I thought I had found the magic combo with intense weight training and counting my macros until I started getting injured, and my digestion started getting worse. Two surgeries later, I realized I was pushing my body too hard and eating the wrong foods. If this sounds like you, or you would like to avoid the surgery part, I can help you make the changes you need to get your body and health back. Look around and see if working together sounds right for you.


Providing one-stop training and support through personalized fitness, nutrition, and wellness plans determined through functional lab tests to help busy people rebuild themselves healthier and stronger from the inside out.

New research shows that how we move affects how we feel. Moving correctly for your body or what your body can safely handle has long-term consequences for managing illnesses and stress. You will be exposed to several different exercise and mobility techniques to ensure you get the increased strength and endurance you want with the pain-free movement you need.

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition

There is a gap between the information you get from your doctor and true health that our current medical system does not cover. Health Coaching is that bridge. Considering your current lifestyle habits and symptoms, we build a plan together to cross the bridge. You are different from your neighbor, so your program will also differ. All programs take diet, rest, stress, toxin load, and exercise into consideration.


I am on a mission to help people find out how their bodies are functioning and give them the tools to help themselves feel better, have more energy, and live the lives they have always wanted to live.

Fitlosophy is the real deal.

“I enjoy Fitlosophy more than any other exercise program I have ever tried. I have actually stayed committed to it for over two years and feel no desire to change. I have tried other studios, mat classes and tower classes at numerous fitness centers and private instruction, trust me they don’t compare. I have increased my muscle tone and have become more flexible since working with Dawn, owner of Fitlosophy. Fitlosophy is the real deal, with Dawn being the most knowledgeable instructor I have found anywhere. Try it, and see for yourself, you won’t be disappointed. I know for me personally, it continues to be one of the best investments in my health and well being I have ever made. Dawn is amazing instructor.”

I would not be where I am today without the help of Dawn.

“Dawn changed my life! First, I will give a bit of background to explain how drastically Dawn helped me. My husband and I were blessed with healthy, large (9lbs and 6.5lbs), full term twins. The twin pregnancy caused a lot of damage to my torso and required me to have surgeries to repair my abdomen. I had considerable back pain and lost much of my abdominal strength, so much so that I couldn’t roll over in bed. All of this while caring for newborn twins, our two year old daughter and a husband who traveled every week all week. Enter Dawn… Dawn spoke to me about FP and how much this form of exercise had helped her with her back. I began meeting with Dawn on a weekly basis. Dawn tailored our sessions to my specific needs and worked within my hectic daily schedule. Each week we met I noticed improvement and decreased back pain. One night I rolled over in bed without sitting up! I continued working with Dawn getting stronger and stronger. I feel I would not be where I am today without the help of Dawn. She was instrumental in my goal of getting back to a normal life and introducing me to a great form of exercise.”

I am stronger, more flexible and stand taller than ever before!

“I am 51 years old and have enjoyed learning the FP method from Dawn for over 4 years. She is a passionate professional with a love for seeing people become healthy and strong. I am stronger, more flexible and stand taller than ever before! Her knowledge and experience enable her to take you at whatever level you are and elevate you to a place you never thought you could be. Dawn is sensitive to every phase of your health and well-being. She knows how to adjust each exercise and each workout to maximize the strength you have that day. You get exactly what you need based on your body and ability in every move. That is the beauty of personalized training. Fitlosophy is a beautiful program that strengthens your body completely, gives you incredible flexibility, lengthens your muscles and gives you beautiful posture. It takes an experienced professional, like Dawn, to teach the proper form to experience the maximum benefit."

Kelly Williams

Fitlosophy falls into the “highly recommended” category.

“Dawn is passionate about exercise, healthy eating, and overall well-being. She is a continual learner about the human body, healthy food options, exercise and how critical each is to quality of life..especially as we age. I have always been committed to exercise, but her program has challenged me to use muscles I never knew I had! In less than six months, I have seen improvement in flexibility, strength and balance. Dawn continues to modify her model based on my progression with the movements. I am not the most coordinate with some of the exercises, but she is always patient. My journey has been challenging, but Dawn’s high energy, smile, sense of humor has made each session fun. Fitlosophy falls into the “highly recommended” category.”

What is a Health Coach?

Health and wellness coaches partner with clients seeking self-directed, lasting changes, aligned with their values, which promote health and wellness and, thereby, enhance well-being. In the course of their work health and wellness coaches display unconditional positive regard for their clients and a belief in their capacity for change, and honoring that each client is an expert on his or her life while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental.

What’s The Big Deal About A National Certification for Health Coaching?

Coaching has been around for a long time, there are sports coaches, career coaches, life coaches, and nutrition coaches, and in the past 10 years health coaches have come on the scene. There were never any guidelines as to who could call themselves a coach. You can choose to coach your child’s baseball team and suddenly you are a coach.
