After playing competitive sports her entire life Dani found herself searching for that “team” feeling throughout her professional career. It wasn’t until she discovered group fitness that she found her place again. As a previous college volleyball player, she was drawn to the fitness industry out of her passion for exercise, performance and community. Although her love for health and fitness helped build the foundation of this business it’s her passion and love for community, charity and giving back that has made her thrive in the group fitness atmosphere. Fusing health and fitness with giving back is where her heart lies. Her fun, uplifting personality fills the gym with inspiring energy. When Dani is not at EFL you can find her sipping a glass of Rosé with girlfriends or playing with her nieces and nephews.
