Jana Dunson-Martin, BS


​I have been working in the fitness industry since 1985. I started out working part-time teaching aerobics classes. After about five years, I realized that I loved my part-time job and hated my "real" job. So I quit my job and went back to school. I graduated from temple University in 1992 with a B.S. in Exercise Science and Leadership.


In addition to teaching fitness and CPR classes and training clients, I am also a presenter for AFAA/NASM providing education for new instructors. Who knows where my travel will take me next?


My husband, RJay, is a firefighter with the North River Fire District; he also has his own carpentry business. We live in Ellenton with our two absolutely adorable dogs, Dillon and Walton.  We are members of Church on the Rock in Palmetto.
