We aren’t here to count your reps. We’re here to help you get better and to teach you how to move for optimal health. Our sessions focus on proper form to ensure that members are training according to their abilities. We’re here to provide the support to help you build a strong foundation, to challenge your body and mind and to reach your fitness and nutrition goals.



Our community consists of women of all ages, shapes, sizes and training backgrounds. And we believe in meeting each one of them right where they are. Our sessions focus on proper form to ensure that everyone is training according to their abilities. We provide personalized options even during our group training sessions to build a strong foundation and to challenge body and mind because we don’t believe in a one size fits all approach.



We have always strived to be much more than just a gym or a workout. Our trainers and staff know every member’s name. Our members know each other. We cheer each other on and we hold each other accountable. You aren’t just joining another gym when you join us, you are joining an amazing group of strong women that are invested in your success.



Even though we are a small studio, we offer a variety of programs, classes and times to fit your needs with everything from Olympic Weightlifting to Beginner Yoga. We are always re-evaluating our programming to serve our members better.



Commitment and consistency are necessary for results. Dragonfly Fitness & Training is results-oriented and committed to each member’s success with a variety of training programs, accountability, nutrition coaching, and progress assessments.  We work very hard to ensure that your training experience is as personal as possible, and that we are providing the very best group and personal fitness coaching.



Simply put, we care about all of our members. We are a small, locally owned business with a genuine interest in our members and our community. We understand that we have the opportunity to make a lasting difference in others’ lives, and we don’t take that lightly.

If you decide we’re a good fit for you, we will take care of your paperwork and get you set up during your consultation so you can get started! The first thing every new member does is attend our special Foundations class before jumping into Group Training. You’ll learn the basics (squat, hip hinge, push, and pull) in a fun, friendly small-group environment. Foundations classes are typically every Saturday at 11 a.m. (Guests may also join us for Foundations class for $20. Max of 5.) 


Once you’ve taken Foundations, you can jump right in! All of our scheduling is done online, and our memberships allow you to sign up for classes at days and times that work best for you. We offer a variety of classes and many are capped at 14 so that you can get the personal attention you deserve. Our trainers will meet you right where you are, offering modifications and progressions for every level.


When Dragonfly Fitness was created, the founder, Renah Jones, saw a need for a training option that gave women the opportunity to try new things and push themselves in a welcoming and comfortable environment. Unfortunately, many women don’t ever get started working out for various reasons —  because they feel they’re not in good enough shape, or they don’t know where to start. This is partly the fault of the fitness industry, and we are here to help change that!

Renah wanted to create a space where all women interested in strength training are welcome, regardless of age or ability. A space where women who may have once been intimidated or afraid of lifting a barbell, deadlifting a heavy weight, or hanging from the bar are now celebrating these accomplishments! A space where women come to learn, grow, and give it their all — without worrying what others think.

The Dragonfly Fitness & Training philosophy started with outdoor bootcamps, and after a year, moved into the current studio location for the love of lifting: deadlifts, front squats, overhead presses, pull-ups, and kettlebell everything! We’ve discovered so many women who have benefited from our community and the support of all the other women here!

While we welcome all fitness levels, it’s important to note that the programs we offer aren’t a “light” version of strength training by any means. Our training programs work for seasoned athletes to beginners simply because we have talented and caring coaches who help each individual scale to her needs. Good form, good technique, and working to individual ability is taught and reinforced in each class. And we are constantly working to improve our programming.
