I found Dawn on groupon with a couple of my coworkers. We were looking to try microdermabrasion but didn’t want to go to a place with crappy service. I read reviews for Dawn on Yelp before booking with her, and I’m glad I did. I’ve read about a lot of other places that gave crappy facials just because their clients purchased from Groupon. Dawn had really good reviews from Groupon purchasers, so I decided to give her a try.

Dawn was very friendly from the moment I met her to the moment I left. She asked about my facial concerns and addressed them with tips and how to maintain better skin, which was a lot of help. I had the microdermabrasion and added a facial for $30. Everything was perfect! Her mini massage was everything! She made sure I was ok throughout the whole facial and microdermabrasion. The whole experience was really amazing. I didn’t feel like I skimped on my skin buy buying a groupon at all. 

Afterwards, my face felt and looked great! No redness or anything. Just smooth glowing skin! I’m pretty picky, but everything was perfect! I booked my next appointment and texted my coworkers about Dawn. I’m definitely coming back and sticking with Dawn after my groupon is over!

I love my facial treatments with Dawn! I started with a micro dermabrasion Groupon deal, and I added on the facial. After my second visit to Dawn, I am hooked! She is professional, polished and friendly, and makes me feel pampered and comfortable. I can’t wait for my next appointment!

Dawn recently did a micro-derm treatment for me at her office near Five Star Blvd. I’ve had them before, but they’ve always left me with 4-5days of peeling and looking severely sunburned, so bad that I wouldn’t leave my house or go out for that period of time.  Major inconvenience. With Dawn I didn’t have this experience, she knew exactly what to do to keep me from ending up like before. I really appreciate her listening to me and taking the extra time to explain the process. Thank you Dawn!

Click to View Transformation – (XFAT(Lite)3 Client)A little background on myself…  I have always been an athlete and in relatively good physical shape.  I played baseball at the college level.  As a college athlete, I learned the importance of exercising properly and developed good lifting technique.  However, the one thing it never really taught me was how to tailor my eating/nutrition/lifting regimen to lean out and gain muscle mass while maintaining a certain body weight. Once I stopped playing sports, I got more into lifting with a focus on gaining muscle mass.  I had never lifted for size gains before, so I started out how most people do.  I read books and magazines on lifting and began lifting with my more knowledgeable friends at the gym.  I made decent gains but there was no real science behind my methods; it was all just a shot in the dark through trial and error.  I pretty much lifted whichever muscle group I felt like and I had no plan for my gym sessions. I had a strong desire to get more definition and tone but was having trouble achieving it on my own.

Prior to talking with the XBodyConcepts group, I was 6’1”, 210 pounds with a body fat around 11%. I was benching in the mid 300’s and was rarely doing any leg exercises.  I was frustrated with all the fad programs and wanted someone knowledgeable to layout a plan that had the science behind it to assure I got the results I was after.  I was referred to Dawn at XBodyConcepts.  I told Dawn what my goal was and she customized a detailed workout and nutrition plan that was going to get me the results I was after.  Dawn provided me with a customized plan (XFAT Lite 3) that I was to stick to for 12 weeks. I took the challenge with the understanding that I would not be training for a competition and would break the meal plan occasionally for a night out or a dinner.  Though I know if I had adhered to the plan 100% my results would have been even better, I would say that I stuck to the plan about 95% of the time. Even with my occasional cheat meals, I was able to easily see the results almost immediately. I could see my abs coming through on my stomach and noticeable definition in my shoulders and arms.  My friends were noticing my results as well and I was getting a lot of positive feedback.  I felt very strong on all my lifts during the program. Additionally, I began to lift my legs again and am back to squatting in the mid 400s for the first time since college.  After 12 weeks on the program my final weight was 197 pounds and I dropped down to 8.2% body.  I am very pleased with my results and look forward to running the XLRG plan this winter to target all out mass gains!  (Click to View Transformation)

I am 40 years old and have worked out off and on most of my life. I am very active and like participating in different sports. I wanted to get in better shape and was looking for something new. In the past two years I have worked out pretty consistently, but felt my workouts were like groundhog day. I needed something to change things up. I have done P90X in the past and liked the principle of muscle confusion. I heard about Dawn and X Body Concepts and thought this was just what I needed to change things up.

I decided to do the XFATWO as my diet was pretty disciplined and only needed some minor tweaking. My beginning weight was 192 lbs. I did the hydrostatic body fat testing in the beginning as I was told it was the most accurate. To my surprise my body fat % was 12.9%. I thought it was much higher. My goal was to loose body fat and keep as much muscle mass as possible. My goal was to get to 10% body fat or less.

As I continued week by week I felt stronger and could see the results. I felt like I had a lot of energy and always felt I got a good workout. Every couple weeks as the workouts changed I felt like I had that “good muscle soreness”, which told me the workouts were working and my muscles were no getting used to the same old workout.

Dawn is very knowledgable and was always there to answer questions. The X Body Concepts Facebook page was also very helpful and motivating. There were articles published relating to diet and different exercises which were very helpful.  It was very motivating to have that kind of support.

At the end of the 14 weeks I felt I saw good results. I was down to 181 lbs. My arm, quad, and calf size stayed the same, however I felt I could see more definition. I gained size in my chest and shoulders, and lost 2 1/2 inches in my waist. My final body fat percentage was 10.6%. Even though I was slightly off from my goal of 10% body fat, I feel I could have obtained that goal had I been a little more strict in my cardio efforts.

All in all I am very pleased with the program and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to loose body fat and lean out. I may try the XLRG program over the winter and run the XFAT program again in the spring.

Dawn was pleasant, professional and my treatment was very relaxing.  My skin feels soft and clean and I’ve already booked another treatment for next month.
Also, I received not only one but two reminders about my appointment.

Read Full Testimonial – (XFAT(Lite) Client)Hi my name is Angelique and I am 47 years old.  I have 6 children.  Four I birthed and two step.  I work full time and have a very busy life.  I am the person that would lose and gain, lose and gain.  I have done EVERY diet in the past, including prescribed diet pills, but the weight ALWAYS came back.  Then I got this brilliant idea that I would gain so much weight so I could qualify for the lap band surgery.  So I gave myself permission to eat unhealthy, in large quantities and drink to achieve this goal.  Well the process would take about a year before I could get it so I finally realized this was stupid!  I was tired of being fat and exhausted and purchasing bigger clothes.  I was at 185lbs, 5.2 inch tall and over 40% body fat.  I was tired of walking by the really cute clothing stores knowing I could never fit in any of them.  And worst of all I felt like such a failure to my children.  I could see their concern at how heavy I was getting.  But bless their hearts and my husband’s heart, they never said anything.

On March 13th, I was roller skating with my family and fell when a small child fell in front of me.  Needless to say I had torn my tendon off of my butt bone and it would require surgery to reattach.  (I just had a surgery 6 months prior to this for a hysterectomy and endometriosis)  I was lying in bed feeling defeated when I came across the Xbodyconcepts that my friend Chad Morris posted on Facebook.  I took a look at it and decided that day that this was my way out of this VERY unhealthy lifestyle.  I had my surgery and while I was in recovery, I purchased the XFAT LITE program.   Two weeks after my hamstring was reattached, I hit the gym with a mission.   The first two weeks I could not even walk up the stairs without the assistance of my husband.  I could not use my legs at all for the first 6 weeks and that was really frustrating!  I focused on my upper body and little by little we tried using the legs.

I had every excuse not to go to the gym but I went every day.  I started with 5 lb. weights and felt totally ridiculous. I sometimes felt like I wasn’t worthy of working out in the area where the really fit people were.  I just kept my head phones on, ignored the feelings and held my head high and said damn it, I deserve to be here!  I emailed Dawn multiple times each day asking her question after question, and sometimes doubting her.  There were days I was feeling higher than a kite and then there were days, I cried.  There were days I felt like I could become a body builder and days I told Dawn it just wasn’t working.  I had days where I pushed too hard and hurt myself which set me back a couple of weeks,  but I always looked for alternatives and worked what parts I could, really hard.  Finally about week 7, I saw some results and said, well maybe Dawn knows what she is talking about……lol.  This began to bring me out of my doubting funk.

Pushing through the changes was very hard for me.  I was losing friends that I went out and drank with and I stopped getting invited to parties because my focus was to get healthy.  This hurt me and at first and I was really frustrated and angry.  I told Dawn I felt like I was sacrificing too much but she would always set me straight.  She would tell me what was important and that this was a life style change and I had a choice.  One was to take care of me or continue the old life.  So I stopped putting myself in bad situations and started making better choices.   When I felt strong enough to attend parties or BBQ’s, I would tell people no thanks to the drinks or bad food and just tell them I was in training.  This sounded better and it didn’t offend people and it kept me more positive about what I was doing.  Eventually it did get easier.  I began putting myself first and then everything else came second.  I would start planning my day around my workouts not the other way around.  I stopped feeling guilty for telling people sorry I can’t make it, or I can’t help you, I am going to the gym.  I began creating healthy positive treats for myself like going out and lying by the pool for 30-45 minutes after my workout, reading a good book or buying a smaller outfit.

After 12 weeks the results were great!  I went from a size 16 to a 10!  I lost 22 lbs and dropped my body fat from 40% to 31.5%.  I feel so much better!  I hear all the time, “You look so good.”  My friends ask me what I am doing and I always refer them to Xbodyconcepts.  I tell them it’s all about your commitment, clean eating and working out.  There is no secret pill, no new diet that will do it.

Now I crave going to the gym.  When I started I could barely push 5 lbs. weights or walk up the stairs and now I am using 30lb dumbbells.  I can now squat and do leg curls.  I feel so strong now and I love when I push myself to a new weight each week.  It makes me want more.  I am excited to take on my next 12 weeks and start the XFAT program with even more amazing results!  My new goal is to enter a body competition by age 50 which is only 1 ½ years away.

If you are tired of being overweight, and or have physical issues, trust Dawn and Xbodyconcepts.  The program works and Dawn will help you every step of the way!

Click to View Transformation – (XFAT Client)There seems to be a point with most guys who truly “work-out”, where they finally figure out what lifts, exercises, diet, etc. seem to be the right combination to gain muscle mass and stay acceptably lean.  I reached this point some time in college.  I finally built the muscles I always wanted and got that great “pump” in the gym that everybody strives for.  Even for a few years following college, I was enjoying the gym and would make different alterations to my workouts that would continue to challenge my body whether I wanted to bulk up or get cut.  No matter what changes I made or different exercises I performed it was always based on a single-muscle-group per day type of workout with little to no cardio. When I was younger and mostly cared about gaining mass this worked fairly well but as time went by I was not reaping the same results.  My body had finally gotten used to the same old routine and for the past couple of years I was just sort of maintaining and had lost my ambition in the gym.  After saying for years that any type of circuit training didn’t work for me and that I could eat anything as long as I lifted daily, I finally came to a realization. I needed to not only completely change my routine, type of training and diet but more importantly, I needed a well laid out plan in front of me to follow.

Just as I was coming to this realization, my friend Chad mentioned XBodyConcepts to me in the gym. I was very reluctant at first, but after checking out the website and seeing other people’s great results and seeing what members were posting in the XBC Facebook group I decided to go for it.  After sending all of my information to Dawn she put together an XFAT program for me and upon receiving it I was blown away.  I hadn’t expected it to be so well put together and complete.  I also knew that it was going to make me hurt.  A week or so in, that pain turned into awesome pumps and that amazing feeling we like to call “beast mode” in the gym.  My body was changing again and I finally felt that desire to go lift that I thought I had lost. It is hard to make oneself stick to a diet but for some reason, the way Dawn laid it out it was actually pretty easy to follow. My body responded very well to the diet and my energy levels and recovery time were great.  By the end of my 12 week XFAT my endurance had skyrocketed, I felt really strong, looked great and couldn’t wait to hit the gym every day. I can’t wait to get started on my XLRG(Click to View Transformation)

I get the ultrasonic micro abrasion and mini-massage.  Best facial and mini-massage EVER.  Dawn makes me feel so comfortable and leaves my skin feeling great.  I plan on having Dawn take care of my skin for a very long time.

Jenny B.Orangevale, CA

Dawn is a great aesthetician, she is friendly, knowledgable and always accommodating to my hectic schedule. I had an acne prone skin issue on my face and she knew what treatment I should get and helped me attain the result I wanted. The ultrasonic treatment is the best, love it. I wanted to add that I always receive by email a reminder about my appointment with her, which is great deal for me since I have other obligations during the week. Thanks Dawn, I will miss visiting you….
