Donna Meeker-O'Rourke

Hi, my name is Donna Meeker-O’Rourke. I am a proud mom of two wonderful children, and completely understand what it means to live an extremely busy and hectic life! I have gone through many struggles, as I'm sure all of you have, and have gone through a huge transformation within the past few years. All this has made me compelled to share the different tools I have learned to use in order to lead a much healthier and happier life.

I earned a BA in Anthropology (the holistic study of humans), a Master’s Degree in Public Health, and am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and Mind Body Health Coach. I have experience teaching both academic and health education classes and have conducted research on several health-related issues. I am very committed and passionate about helping others achieve their health and fitness goals!

I take a holistic approach to health/fitness and believe that it is not a destination, but rather a journey that is unique to each of us. I am excited about helping others along their journey. I am eager to combine my knowledge and experience with my continuous learning of the body’s structure and movement to bring everyone exciting classes and great programs!

    Over the years, I have joined gyms only to stop going after a month or so because I have no idea what I should do or if I’m doing things correctly. I always felt like I was just one more body to the trainer and gym. A friend persuaded me to attend a session with Donna. WOW! I was hooked from that first session. I have been going to Donna’s training on a regular basis 3x/week for over a year. Donna knows every one of her clients; we are not just another body. She is encouraging and motivating and never, ever, boring. Donna continues to come up with new exercises and every class is different than the next. And the classes are small enough so you get individual attention. And most important, I can see results. There are now several less inches of me and I feel better than ever. Donna - Thank you!

    Donna is a wonderful trainer and motivator, combining the best aspects of a personal trainer with the best of a large-gym fitness class. She manages to fully challenge a variety of fitness levels in the same class. Whether you're just coming to a fitness program, or you've been running marathons for years, Donna will challenge you in new and fun ways while providing a personal and non-intimidating environment. Her follow up texts and emails are motivating, encouraging and show just how much she cares about each and every client. And you can't beat her pricing! I can, and have on numerous occasions, recommended her boot camp-style programs many times, and am continuing to work out with her through pregnancy. You can't miss with Donna!

    I met Donna several years ago when I started running 5Ks. She is a wonderful person dedicated to helping others achieve their goals and making it different every class. She is very motivating and flexible with her class schedule. I highly suggest everyone to try her classes and see for yourself what she is all about!
    Donna 2 Friend and Fan :)

    I have not had the pleasure of meeting Donna, but do receive her emails. I find them to be motivating, helpful and enthusiastic. Thank you Donna for all the good advice, support and motivation. Good Luck with your endeavors!

    Donna is a true fitness professional! Her dedication to each and every one of her clients is amazing. I've tried many other programs and gyms in the past, only to find myself bored and uninspired. The beauty of working with Donna, is that she customizes each session to create a balanced form of exercise. Her sessions are challenging and invigorating at the same time! The fact that I look forward to each early morning session is proof that Donna has found her calling :)
