My Personal Training Philosophy

Every person is an individual and every program I design is different.
By getting to know you, I’m able to personalize and tailor your #WorkingYourBody plan to meet your specific needs.


DAWN SUMERFORD | Newport Beach Certified Personal Trainer & Nutritionist

You have a goal; I help you achieve it! I enjoy collaborating with my clients in a fun and relaxed setting to create a program that produces benefits quickly. I work with men, women and children of all ages and fitness levels. #WorkingYourBody is for beginners, seasoned exercisers, seniors and also those with rehabilitation needs. My personal training program is a comprehensive fitness and health program tailored to your individual needs. I combine assessments with goal setting and a wide variety of free-weight movement, balance work, weight and cardio machines, stretching, as well as brain work. Each client receives a sound understanding of exercise techniques and principles, allowing them to progress safely and confidently. The result: a fun and effective way to achieve your fitness goals all-the-while gaining balance, strength and confidence. My clients oftentimes receive better health reports from their doctors including reducing hypertension, lowering cholesterol numbers and decreasing their need for medications. I help busy professionals in sessions that are just 15 minutes! #WorkingYourBody sessions are also available at 30, 45 or 60 minutes or longer in length. I’m also able to do all of this in the comfort of your home because I drive to you for your sessions. You are my priority! I thrive on being an enthusiastic advocate, coach and motivator for YOU. I’ve been in the fitness industry since 1987. Let me share my years of experience, multiple credentials and many years of one-on-one training with you! I am a certified personal fitness trainer, nutritionist and boot camp coach. I help clients all over the United States.
