In 2008, Donna established BODYTRIO, a highly-innovative boutique training studio. It was a natural expression of her deep-rooted passion for people, holistic health/fitness/wellbeing, and game-changing understanding of integrative movement science. Soon, BODYTRIO’s distinctive training experiences became recognized, earning prestigious Boston honors including:
As the people’s choice, BODYTRIO continued to grow in reputation and influence for those in the know; extending its unique experiences beyond the artificial confines of its physical location in Belmont, MA. A decade later in the fall of 2018, a fire destroyed the BODYTRIO studio but not its spirit. Within days, BodyTrio had been reestablished in temporary facilities to serve its loyal clients. Simultaneously, TRIOGO™, a sibling enterprise emerged as a second expression of Donna’s creative vision …TRIOGO was designed to transport health/fitness professionals, competitive teams, elite performers, and distinctive brands beyond the ordinary to extraordinary.
