We are raising the bar in women’s fitness and we are raising the bar to support our community

We are very proud to have donated more than $36,000 to local charities through fundraisers and special programs since 2012! 

Meet our Uplift Charity Partners for 2018 -19!

We are excited to support these two wonderful, local organizations this year with our Uplift Charity Program!

Our goal is to donate $10,000 to each of the organizations from September 2018 – August 2019. Here’s how, and you can help!!

*WORKOUT: Join us for the Throwback Give Back Workout once per month, 100% of donations will de donated! (We’ll try to keep the link here updated monthly so you can go directly to the event info!)

*CHECK-IN: When you come in to workout at Dragonfly, check in on Facebook and we’ll donate $1 to our charities (Up to $500 per month)! Use the hashtags #DFTcheckinforcharity #IWorkoutDragonflyGivesBack #GatewayPetGuardians #MCHS

*SUPPORT AN EVENT: Our two annual fundraisers will also support these organizations. Every Rep Counts (Gateway Pet Guardians) and Move for Memory (MCHS).

 We are also excited to offer some volunteer opportunities with each of these group to our team and members!
Gateway Pet Guardians is a nonprofit animal shelter whose passionate and dedicated staff and volunteers care for animals on the streets of East St. Louis, Illinois and surrounding areas. Their mission is to end homelessness for animals in the Metro East through rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, community outreach and education.
Memory Care Home Solutions offers consultation, education, support, and personalized caregiver training to families caring for a loved one living with dementia.


In August 2017, we celebrated our 5 Year anniversary with a special giving program: a donation of $1 per person per class August – April! We partnered with a different charity each month. We are proud to have donated $12, 213 through this initiative August 2017 – April 2018! What a way to celebrate a big anniversary!
