Ryane Dunaway

Certified Fitness Coach / Personal Trainer

Hey! My name is Ryane Dunaway. I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and I am ACE Specialty Certified in Weight Management. 

I was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and moved to Hampton Roads with my husband in August, 2010.  My husband has been serving our country, as a Marine, for the last 16 years.

Fitness and Nutrition have always been a part of my life, and in 2009 I made the personal decision to kick it up a notch despite having to handle a busy schedule and 3 children.  

After making the move to Virginia, I found myself in the gym more and more. My passion, at the time, was weight lifting, but I was invited by a good friend to a group fitness class she had been taking. I met and talked with the trainer, and before I knew it was teaching classes for her. I thank God for the opportunity to work with people from all different activity levels, and LOVE watching them become the best version of themselves. I have felt BEYOND blessed to be able to blend my love for people with my passion for fitness and nutrition.

I am personally involved with Nutritional Education, Leading Small Group Fitness Classes, and improving my running skills. I'm very excited to be a part of the Fitness Together team, and I'm looking forward to watching YOU surpass your goals

Hey, my name is Kai Rossbach and I'm a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and CPR/AED certified through the American Red Cross. I was home schooled as a child until I graduated, but this never hindered my passion for sports and exercise. I had been involved in sports leagues throughout my adolescence which ultimately led to my love for fitness and conditioning. I personally believe that any fitness goal can be accomplished through determination in maintaining a healthy diet along with a consistent exercise program. I love meeting new people and look forward to helping you achieve your fitness goals through fun and personalized workouts at Fitness Together! "Limits, like fears, are often just an illusion."

Hillary Dunnegan

Certified Fitness Coach / Personal Trainer

Hi, my name is Hillary Dunnegan. I was born and raised in rural Iowa, where I attended Iowa Wesleyan College and majored in Biology. Upon graduating college, I moved to Virginia with my husband, who is stationed in the US Air Force. 

After having a serious conversation with my doctor in 2012 I knew I needed to make some serious lifestyle changes, specifically with my exercise routine. Even though I ran track and field in high school, I lost focus when I went to college. I immediately decided to train for my first marathon. During my 9 months of training, watching my own progress throughout the entire training program I realized how much I enjoyed getting back in shape. When race day came and I finished the race, it had occurred to me that anything is possible with commitment and hard work. During those 9 months I had become more confident with myself emotionally and physically. While beginning training for my second marathon, I had realized I COULD do this for a living and help others receive similar results of their own, feeling more confident physically and emotionally. 

I am currently certified through FT and will have my (NASM) National Academy of Sports Medicine Personal Trainer Certification at the end of April 2014. I am also working towards earning my specialties in Fitness Nutrition, Corrective Exercise and Performance Enhancement. I enjoy a fun, relaxed, and encouraging environment. I want my clients to feel comfortable and enjoy their workouts, but I also want my clients to be challenged. I’m so excited to be part of the Fitness Together team and I’m looking forward to working with you.

Ryan Brod

Fitness Coach / Certified Personal Trainer

Hi, my name is Ryan Brod; my hometown is Las Vegas, Nevada. After graduating high school, I decided to join the U.S. Navy. While in the service, I worked as a Hospital Corpsman Preventive Medicine Technician. During my service, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences from Touro University.

After serving the armed forces for over 8 years, I decided to leave and continue a career in the health care field. I began working as a medical assistant, while pursuing a route to a nursing degree.

As a strength and fitness enthusiast, throughout my life, I never thought about becoming a trainer, until I helped a dear friend of mine, put on muscle mass, while loosing over 20lb in 5 months, simply by asking him to follow my routine. To this day, he continues to thank me for changing his sedentary lifestyle.  I soon realized how rewarding it was to help others become healthier and reach their fitness goals. My career move changed at that point and from that day forward, I knew I wanted to become a fitness trainer.

I am Certified as a Performance Enhancement Specialist & Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I continued my education and graduated with a master degree in Exercise Science from California University of Pennsylvania (Go Vulcan's!) and currently volunteer at the cardiac rehabilitation in Sentara Leigh hospital.

I learned over the years that fitness is a way of life and a lifestyle change. I believe there is no better way to succeed at fitness, than hard work, good nutrition and most importantly, trust with a positive attitude. I am so excited to be part of the Fitness Together team and look forward to working with you.
