Dawn Doll, Co-Founder FitScene
A Serial Entrepreneur
Co-Founder Dawn Doll is savvy, stylish, super smart when it comes to the scene of fitness, fashion and beauty! As you will see, she is also a serial entrepreneur! Dawn began her professional career as an Accountant, with a Bachelor of Science in Business and Accounting from the University of Minnesota. But it wasn’t long before Dawn started her first of many successful businesses.
Dawn’s most proclaimed venture in the fitness industry before FitScene was REVOLUTION Cycle + Fitness. She founded REVOLUTION, the first “total-body” cycling studio, in 2010 in Minneapolis, MN. REVOLUTION provided a fitness community that brought all the latest in cycling programming and equipment and other breaking trends in fitness under one roof. Dawn was recognized by the National Association of Women business Owners as the 2014 recipient of the “Innovations in Service Award.” Dawn sold the REVOLUTION studio in 2016 to pursue her dream FitScene.
No Dream is too Big,
even with Breast Cancer
While running the REVOLUTION studio, the concept of FitScene originated under the idea of tying together all of Dawn’s interest, passions, knowledge and experience under one brand. And beyond just providing information, she wanted to be “the source” of what is “hot” or “trending” on the scene. But in 2014, Dawn was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and spent the following two years battling through the rough journey that is cancer. The dream of FitScene was tabled to the side as Dawn’s main focus was on regaining her complete health– although she actively stayed hands-on in the operations and teaching at REVOLUTION. As a proud survivor of Breast Cancer, Dawn actively volunteers and raises funds for several breast cancer awareness foundations. And she is more determined than ever to make FitScene THE resource for the what is happening in the scene of fitness, fashion, lifestyle and beauty!

Through the years, Dawn immersed herself in studying all areas of the fitness, wellness and beauty . She became a certified personal trainer through the American Council of Exercise and acquired more than 10 other fitness certifications including STOTT Pilates, Yoga, Gyrotonics, Kettlebell and more!
