It is the mission of Dot Spaet and Fitness by Dot to inspire, motivate and empower people to embrace fitness as part of their lives. Specializing in Back Care, I utilize creative methods that may include Yoga, Yogatherapy, Pilates and Strength Training.

Dot is a Personal Trainer specializing in eliminating back pain. See for more information about my Eliminating Back Pain Programs and Workshops. Dot says, "I like training people with specific challenges especially neck, shoulder, and back pain or injuries. I love figuring out exactly what kind of training will work."
Let me – Certified Personal Trainer Dot Spaet – help inspire and empower you! All in a way that fits YOU and your likes and dislikes, not some predetermined idea of what a workout should be!

I gave him something that felt more like ‘fun’ than ‘exercise.’ Walking and bicycling felt too much like exercise for him to stick with, but dancing makes him light up. We dance for an effective cardio workout that he looks forward to and that has helped him increase his stamina and shed weight.

I put together a complete lower and upper body workout using a combination of stretchy elastic bands and tubes. She’s happy with
the effective resistance-training routine and has the muscle tone to prove it.

Another female client wanted to tone up, but didn’t want to use any apparatus at all. She enjoys yoga, so I devised a workout that uses her body as resistance – such as doing pushups – all incorporated into a yoga routine. She has toned up while stretching her muscles and gaining flexibility.

I tap that creative spirit in my approach to fitness. I use my background in weight-training, yoga and Pilates to design a customized fitness program with you. With me, you’re not limited to a one-size-fits-all approach to fitness. People don’t come in one size – effective workouts don’t either. I believe the best workout is the one you’ll stick with, and that’s different for each person.

I take the time to get to know you, your health and fitness background as well as your likes and dislikes when it comes to exercise. I work with you to design a program that not only gets you the results you’re after, but also a program that you enjoy and even look forward to.

“Dot is the first person who asked me what I liked and developed a program WITH me not FOR me,” client Renee R. says. “My chronic hip and back pain were almost completely gone after only four days using the program she designed for me. And she’s the best cheerleader anyone could ask for!”

With me by your side, you can expect to:

dotBe motivated, inspired and empowered, no matter your current level of fitness.
dotWork out more effectively, both with me and on your own. You’ll get more bang for your workout buck!
dotGet the results you’ve been after – whether that’s losing weight, toning up or ridding yourself of chronic pain.

I’ll be more than your trainer. I’ll also be your personal fitness coach and your cheerleader, encouraging you every step of the way.

I take your success personally. I want to help you make fitness a regular part of your life, to reclaim your body as stronger, more flexible and pain-free.

Are you ready to feel vibrant and alive? Are you ready to be inspired and empowered?
