INTRODUCING OUR FITNESS COACHES
Ron ClarkPersonal Trainer
Ron Clark’s educational background and work experience has always been centered on exercise physiology. He started competing in bodybuilding in the late 70’s and won numerous titles, including the Mr. Michigan title in 1983. As the fitness movement spread throughout the country, he moved to California, where he performed as Conan at Universal Studios. In 1988, he worked as a Sports Performance Trainer with US athletes who were training for the Olympics in Seoul, Korea. Today, in addition to training clients and operating Esteem Fitness Training, he also serves as a coach and strength and conditioning specialist for the Grand Valley State University hockey team, one of the most accomplished programs in the state.

Derek plans to continue his education at Grand Valley towards a master’s degree in Occupational Therapy.
Derek also played 4 years with Grand Valley’s Hockey Program as a defenseman and co-captain.
Dawn DetraPersonal Trainer
Dawn Detra is certified through the National Federation of Professional Trainers.
Dawn has been actively involved in fitness for over 23 years, and the last 13 years as a personal trainer. During high school she played basketball and softball and that’s where her passion for fitness began. Soon after graduating she realized that she needed to change her eating and exercise habits if she wanted to stay in shape.
Dawn now competes successfully in triathlons and believes regardless of your age or current physical condition, it’s never too late to begin a regular exercise regimen.
