Your Turn was created in the fall of 2011 by Melodie Holman and Dawn Marciniak. Your Turn supports the health and wellness of all women regardless of age, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, shape, size, or fitness level. The focus is the personal wellness goal of each woman. We interact together in what we call a nonjudgmental, noncompetitive, guilt free zone. We believe the point where any woman is in her life, is where another woman is striving to be; we are all an inspiration.
Mel and Dawn learned firsthand how much easier it is to conquer the typical fears and setbacks of taking on new challenges with other women and it’s a lot more fun!!! Connections with other women help to sustain accountability and support each other in making positive changes.
Locally, we offer weekly meetings that provide information pertaining to all aspects of health and wellness. Globally, we offer daily email contacts as well as social media communication for keeping in touch. We organize fitness programs and promote attending wellness activities within each community; this helps get women together in person right where they live.
Melodie Holman is a mother of five, marathon runner, triathlete and writer. Within the course of one year she lost 100 pounds through diet, exercise and dedication. She is high energy, come as you are, say it like it is person and a four letter word user, never sugar coater, kind of woman. Her philosophy is that women need to stop talking about how busy they are and make the time to do what it takes to live their dream in health and wellness. Her passion is contagious and her ambition is to turn the obesity crises around and change the world..
Dawn Marciniak is a mother of two, marathon runner and triathlete. She has a degree in Exercise Physiology with a minor in nutrition. Dawn is the politically correct, sugar coat everything, wear a dress but never do your hair kind of woman. She understands the challenge of putting yourself first. Her philosophy is that there is no excuse that should stop you from striving to be healthy. She has a sense of adventure and encourages all women to step out of their comfort zone for their own health and the health of their family.
Together with an amazing Executive Board and a phenomenal group of volunteers we call YT Inspirators, Your Turn is committed to providing support to women around the world at no charge. Twice a year we conduct a membership drive where we encourage Your Turn Women to donate what they are able. For some that may be $1 and for others it may be more, but everyone is welcome.
