After experiencing rapid weight gain amidst surgery and the covid lockdown, I turned to the adult strength and conditioning program with Coach Dawson at Acme Athletics. I am so happy with the results that I have received so far. I am down 7 pounds in body fat. My clothes are fitting better. I am feeling myself getting stronger every session and I feel much more confident. I am so appreciative of Coach Dawson motivating me and helping me meet my goals and look forward to making even more progress.” 


“I have been a crossfitter for years. I’ve tried whole paleo, paleo, and keto diet lifestyles. All with little to no results… Three months with Dawson at Acme Athletics and I lost 20 lbs of Body Fat, gained 5 lbs of muscle, and have had sustainable results. (I have even had ice cream!!) 

My weight on the scale only shifted about 5 pounds, but my dress size went down 4 sizes IN THREE MONTHS!!”
