Davita Parks is a leading fitness instructor and entrepreneur shaping the lives of clients along the East Coast and across the country. Her fitness philosophy resides in the development of a strong core – a strong core is the foundation from which everything flows. She is an educator for the DOVE Campaign for Real Beauty, encouraging adolescent girls to look beyond the mirror & fashion magazines and redefine beauty. Davita also serves as a Regional Board Member and spokesperson for the American Lung Association, participating in fundraising events and lobbying for legislation to improve air quality, as well as educating teachers and school administrators on the warning signs of children in respiratory distress and proper protocol.
Certified in Personal Training & Corrective Exercise by the National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM) Davita’s workouts are designed around the use of functional, compound movements with a focus on proper form and control from start to finish. Her clients gravitate towards her contagious energy and passion for life and fitness. When you are in one of Davita’s classes, you are instantly submerged in an environment that motivates you to push beyond your limits and fight achieve your goals.
Growing up in the South, Davita’s love for an active lifestyle began with her family who allowed her to participate in everything from dancing to track until she found her niche. After a long battle with a respiratory disorder, Davita spent her free time in the weight room of her college regaining her strength. It was there that Davita met a lifelong friend & mentor that encouraged her to keep fighting for her health — Davita took that advice and never looked back. Her desire to pay it forward and her natural ability to lead allowed her to take on her first group fitness instructor position at age 19.
