Dominique Conti

Fitness Coach

Certified Trainer

My name is Dominique Louvère and I'm a professional dancer and fitness instructor from Los Angeles who recently landed in Charlotte.  


As a born-and-raised Italian Jersey girl, I achieved my dream job dancing for the  New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, eventually sharing the stage with artists like Rihanna, J. Balvin and Jason Derulo. I quickly realized I needed to  take better care of my own body if I was going to have any longevity in my dance  career, so I became a certified Pure Barre Instructor. I fell in love with watching  my clients crush their goals and accomplish things they never thought possible.  After moving to LA six years ago, I became a lead trainer at Body By Simone  where I sculpted some of Hollywood's best bodies including Taylor Swift, Jennifer  Garner, Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Natalie Portman for tours, movies, and  photoshoots. In 2020, I became a Founding Guide for Kinrgy by Julianne Hough,  where I had the opportunity to lead people through a transformational dance  experience on Oprah's 2020 Vision Tour. I’m also a featured trainer for the new  Fabletics fitness app, set to launch January 2021.  


My training style (and me) are best summed up by my man Shakespeare:  “Though she be but little, she is fierce.” I will challenge you to defy your own  limits, while providing a fun, inclusive and inspirational environment. My  specialties include dance, HIIT, barre, bodyweight, strength training and  trampoline cardio. I’m extremely passionate about sharing the gift of physical,  emotional and mental wellness at a time when people need it most, and feel  blessed to work out with the Queens City community.
