health is not a person or a place

In 1995, I created a fitness company that would put people first, and focus on making health and fitness more attainable and fun.
Health Is Not A Club.

Health is the natural result of a proactive approach to prevention, a sustainable strategy for wholeness, and a progressive plan for healing.
And, it's very personal.

Health Is Not A Club has been created to equip you to live in the health you need to do the things that are important to you.
Learn how to live life well.

Dawn Delahunty

Dawn Delahunty is an ACE certified personal trainer, health coach and group instructor. She knows how essential health is to being able to pursue your life dreams.

She is driven to help people live the lives they want by making sure they have the strength they need to do it. Each new client session begins with, “What do you want to be able to do?”

She earned a bachelor’s degree from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University and continued at Valparaiso University to study human development. She had worked with several health clubs before deciding to begin on her own by creating State of the Heart Fitness, LLC.

Three years ago, Dawn and State of the Heart Fitness moved to California and began doing business as Health Is Not A Club, LLC. As part of the East Bay Area, Dawn does in-home and online personal training and teaches group classes at five separate locations specializing in functional training.

Dawn currently lives in Danville, CA with her husband of 37 years. She enjoys volunteering at the Contra Costa County Crisis Center, backpacking through Yosemite National Park, kayaking the many lakes of the bay area and reading.
