“I am so glad I had the opportunity to participate in UPLIFT. The program didn’t end on the weekend, it incorporated weekly workouts and gave us the ability to track our progress which I greatly appreciated.  It was always exciting to do something new, outside of the regular lifting, such as flip the tire or pull the sleds. Over the weeks, I could see a considerable difference in my lifts and experienced great gains! I highly recommend the program, Dominique is very knowledgeable about lifting techniques and extremely supportive.”


“Dominique is so much more than a trainer; she exudes pure passion and true dedication in everything she does, which I absolutely saw translated throughout our training together. Her motivation and ability to get the best out of everyone around her is unreal. She pushed me to do things I never thought were possible, without even realizing how much work I put in – because every second of the training was so much fun.”



“Working out with Dominique on a weekly basis caused a dramatic change in my outlook on fitness and my own personal body image. She provided constant encouragement and her enthusiasm was infectious; I found myself pushing myself much further than I typically would just because she made me think I could – and she was right! Dominique made me realize that it didn’t matter what other people were doing, but when I stepped up to the platform it was all about what I could do and how to push myself… I couldn’t be more grateful to Dominique for forcing me out of my comfort zone and into her world of female empowerment, where anything was possible if you were willing to work for it.”
