Daniel Dodson - Instructor
I, like many other kids, suffered from being extremely overweight, harrassed, ridiculed and bullied by others all throughout my entire school years, in 1990 I finally decided to make a change, armed with little knowledge in diet and fitness I began my journey to wellness. With some pros and more cons I would go up and down with food and injury due to poor technique. Having reached a emotional low. I finally turned to reading materials and friends educated in fitness, positives began to overcome the negatives.
In 2010, with the encouragement and support of my wife, I became a certified personal trainer and embarked on mission to better myself and others with the knowledge I had gained. So when I stand there and you are cursing me, fighting to gain your breath, on your knee in the dirt, sweat pouring from your head, heart in your throat, I understand the emotional and physical battlefield you are on. I was there, I lived the nightmare. Always remember you did not get where you are in one week, and you won’t fix it in a week. Every victory no matter how small is a victory. You can accomplish anything you attempt, you are never too old, too overweight to start, you don’t need easy, you just need possible.

Katelyn Tiwald - Yoga Instructor
Katelyn is task’s ashtanga vinyasa yoga instructor. If asked why she got into yoga her response was, “I learned that with yoga I would be able to continue doing the things I love. Yoga taught me humility every time I fall out of a handstand, compassion in each sun salutation, ahimsa with every posture, and meta in every breath. Yoga taught me a connection through my movements with my mind and spirit that I can use in every situation in every posture that the day puts us in. I have such a passion for teaching yoga and in every class I teach i find that I am not the teacher but the student learning from the practice and those around me still. I want to share this gift with everyone open to receive.” She has taught yoga in Baja Norte Mexico, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and many places all over the valley. Task is lucky to have her helping all of us get more flexible.

Adrienne Martin - Zumba Instructor
Heres what Adrienne has to say about her passion for zumba “Hi, I’m Adrienne Martin and I love zumba! The reason is simple: every class feels like a party! I started taking zumba classes about 6 years ago and loved it so much that I decided to become a certified teacher. I also like that it is so simple that you don’t even have to know how to dance, just move your body and follow the leader. It’s that easy! The best part of the classes, for me, is that not only do I get to do what I love, but my son is also a certified instructor so we get to enjoy the journey together! In my full time employment, I am a business manager for a major health care company and realize how important it is for people to have resources to help in maintaining their fitness and health goals. We look forward to meeting you out on the “dance floor”! Live…laugh…zumba <3"
