"I help families who care about instilling healthy habits in their children go from overwhelmed, worried and lost to confident, informed and empowered in laying the building blocks for a lifetime of health and wellness." -Dawn Hollister

Over the course of 14+ years, hundreds of kids and dozens of families have experienced the benefits of working with Bright Futures Fitness.

"When my daughter asked to join Bright Futures Fitness I wasn’t sure what to expect. She now comes home every Monday excited about eating healthy, exercising and talking about all the fun games she played with her friends in the group! Thank you Bright Futures for going into schools and creating such a fun club!"

- Cherie M.


"We love having Dawn’s classes as part of our routine for the past 8 years! She works well with both kids and adults to make things fun and to adapt to your fitness level and needs."

- Katie T.

Just the fact that we feel like we

HAVE TO DO IT ALL can be so stressful.

Healthy meals and snacks

Reasonable bedtimes and adequate sleep

Screen time worries



Stress Management (yes, even for the kids!)

Then there's actually getting everything else done in a day that's required...


We've all been there...yes, me too! I have two now grown daughters and sometimes it felt so overwhelming!

The Family Fitness Clubhouse ongoing monthly membership also holds the benefits of a community of people with similar goals. Our kids are a top priority for all of us, and knowing we aren't alone can be so beneficial.

You are your child's first and best teacher, and the people they will emulate the most! Let's work together to be the best examples we can be for the healthy life we'd like them to lead!


Come meet other families in the club!

Here's a bit more on the benefits of working with Bright Futures Fitness:


"[Dawn}... is positive, encouraging, supportive and helpful. She answers questions about fitness that aren't even related to what we're doing at the time so i can be more productive at home and working out on my own. She varies classes so it's never boring and the 'same old thing'."

-Michele H.

Welcome to Bright Futures Fitness! If you're new here, allow me to introduce myself and share the heart behind BFF.

I'm originally from Illinois and earned my degree in Early Childhood Education from Illinois State University. For nearly 25 years, I've called Florida home, specifically the Bradenton/Palmetto/Parrish area.

My journey into fitness instruction began about 15 years ago when I made the exciting decision to blend my passion for teaching with my love for fitness. Thus, Bright Futures Fitness was born, and it's been an incredibly fulfilling journey ever since.

But even closer to my heart are my roles as a mom and wife. My girls are grown now (one of them is REALLY GROWN, as you can see!), but the memories of navigating the challenges of establishing healthy habits and promoting a nutritious diet and active lifestyle are still vivid in my mind. I understand firsthand the importance of these values, and I'm still in the trenches alongside you, advocating for the well-being of families like yours.

From the very first Bright Futures Fitness class, I set out to get kids moving in fun ways that would help them fall in love with physical activity and good habits, in the hope they continue for a lifetime.


Today the vision goes beyond teaching some kids about healthy habits for those few weeks at a time. I have long hoped to find a way to serve their families during the times they aren't with me, or even kids I do not get to see in person at all.

I hear hints from the kids that their families pay attention to healthy habits but also often struggle. I hear from some parents and other caregivers, too...about how their kids are a tough sell on healthy eating. How they like screens and staying inside. How even their little ones have trouble settling their brains to fall asleep after being bombarded with input all day. 

Moreover, our rising rates of overweight and obesity, even in children, are always on my heart. I firmly believe that every child deserves to grow up with a foundation of health and wellness, free from the burden of weight-related health issues that can persist into adulthood.


No matter where you are on the journey, whether you're navigating minor hurdles or facing significant challenges, whether you're a healthy adult with reluctant kids or seeking habit work for the entire family...I'm here to support you.


Together, we can set your family up for success and empower your children to thrive in all aspects of life.

If that sounds like'll be a fantastic addition to the club!

"I have appreciated you so much over the past couple of years!  It's so nice to have Bright Futures as an extra curricular activity, that doesn't necessarily have to pertain to athleticism. As much as [he] loves playing sports, he doesn't feel comfortable signing up due to his lack of athletic ability.  But to have Bright Futures, where it's HIS sport and HIS extra curricular activity, it really gives him a sense of pride and accomplishment.  You do such a great job in giving these kiddos the guidance and confidence to be themselves and learn healthier habits along the way.  Thank you for all you do!"

- Megan W.
