Each year, Classy Living Society presents the Classy Living Award – an award to honor and applaud the extraordinary work of organizations they are passionate about. This year, CLS will have the great pleasure of presenting this year’s award to Angel Eyes Fitness and Nutrition, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide specially targeted and tailored fitness and nutrition programs for members of the blind and visually impaired community.
A few years ago, Dawn Wells was asked to instruct a six-week fitness series for blind and visually impaired individuals. After that venture, Dawn realized the dire need for this type of program in the community. Thus, she founded Angel Eyes Fitness and Nutrition (Angel Eyes). Through the creation of Sight Unseen Dance Fitness, Dawn provides a program using descriptive, simplified verbal instruction and moves with familiar names to specifically serve the blind and visually impaired population. She works diligently with them to improve their quality of life, wellness and health. It is the vision of Angel Eyes that we live in a world where visual acuity is not a prerequisite for health and wellness.
Founder Dawn Wells is a 25+ year enthusiast of fitness and dance. She is a Certified AFAA Group Fitness Instructor, an SCW Certified Personal Trainer and a Certified Nutritional Coach and the owner of Dawn Wells Fitness (DWF). Sight Unseen Fitness is provided once a month at DWF, and alternates with a variety of fitness programs, all tailored to serve the blind and visually impaired. The premise of DWF is to underscore and promote the reality that looking and feeling healthy is based on the individual, and not a one-size-fits-all notion of body image.
