The new year is an all about setting healthy goals, creating new habits, and getting fit! Well for the followers and fans of Brittany Dawn may have come up short. Recently the Dallas Fitness Influencer Brittany Dawn has been under heat for allegedly being accused of scamming clients. Dawn started her fitness journey in 2012 soon after she started coaching others. Her journey was nothing less than inspiring. According to her website (which is aesthetically pleasing I might add), she offers meal and workout plans, that include weekly check-in and online support from the influencer these services cost up to $300. Recently people have been reaching out and saying that they were getting the services they paid for. Here are a few comments from clients on the Better Business Bureau:

04/23/2018

I didn't receive what I paid for by any stretch of the imagination. I want a refund and to get the word out. Over the duration of XXXX-XXXX, I purchased three online plans from Brittany. The first was a month long training plan advertised as individualized, when in reality it was the same exact plan every consumer receives.

In addition, the plan included weekly check ins to ask questions, receive guidance, and adjust macronutrients with the promise of a three day turn around. Not only were the responses from her well beyond the promised time frame, they also didn't bother to answer any questions or address any of my concerns.

They were generic responses, like "doing great, keep going girl!" and the like. Questions were not even acknowledged nor responded to. So, with the hope that the first plan was a fluke, that there was a valid excuse, and the desperate desire for results in a time of eating disorders on my part (which she marketed too, by the way, but covered herself by making consumers check a box that you didn't have them), I went on to purchase more plans. I purchased two challenges that run under the same format as specified above but with the incentive of a prize at the end if you "win."

I entered a challenge hoping to just recoup lost money and busted it to lose the weight and perform the best, disregarding the lack of responses and the like. And I did win! However, the $500 prize that was advertised never came. She said that instead she'd decided to change it to the equal value in merchandise and a plan. Lucky me, a few more months of less than adequate coaching with a few t-shirts to provide her advertisement.

As a member of the exclusive Facebook group for members who paid for plans, I consistently saw positive feedback that led me to believe I was expecting too much or a minority in the way I felt. However, in the light of day, it's been exposed that she deletes anything that expresses concern or doubt, never bothering to even respond to it. It's also been exposed that I'm far from a minority and it's time to speak up to save others the loss of their hard earned money for the fraudulent business that Brittany runs. It's time the truth be known. It's rather convenient to advertise no refunds; you don't depend on a repeat customer so it's easy to take the money and run, while marketing to those who know nothing of your faulty business practices that you continually hide.

Here's another: 04/05/2018

I have not received my fitness package I purchased 216 hours ago on, it said it would take 96 hours, we're 120 over. I paid ******** Dawn fitness $185 on 3/26/2018, I bought the 60-day bridal package and it said I would hear back within 96 hours we'll it's 4/4/2018 now I have yet to receive anything.

I have emailed, written on a chat that pops on her website and contacted her through Facebook and I still haven't received anything. I would like a full refund of $185 due to the fact it's false advertisement. I have proof I have tried to reach out and when I bought my package. I want to work with a trainer whom I know takes their customers serious not makes them wait days upon days to either hear back or deliver what they bought.

My opinion on this situation is I don't necessarily think she purposely was trying to scam her clients.I do think she has gotten in over her head which is good and bad. Good because obviously, her marketing tactics are amazing but bad because she can't deliver the quality of service she's advertising.

I think she needs to either quickly deliver what her clients want or refund them their money immediately. I myself am on a fitness journey and it really takes guts and accountable to commit to changing your lifestyle. So I definitely understand how the clients feel not getting the service they expected. On the business side, this could really tarnish her reputation if she doesn't get a grip on the situation. To the clients, I say stay local "online fitness" is difficult and there isn't a lot of accountability.

She has since made an open apology on her YouTube channel: Brittany Dawn Apology

After watching the video I don't feel the apology was very genuine.

Troy University Needs to Realize That There Are More Students Than Greek Life And SGA

"In unity, there is strength." - Riverdale

At Troy University, there are three groups present on campus: those that are Greek, those that are a part of the Student Government Association, and those that are don't affiliate with either.

During my search for a college to attend, one of my stipulations was that I didn't want Greek life to be the only dominant force on campus (along with things such as cost, location, majors offered etcetera). Troy University boasts a Greek population of only 20% and this number intrigued me because, at many schools, it seems to be a higher percentage of students. However, after attending Troy University for a little over a semester now, I doubt this number because every time I turn around, another student is telling me about what sorority they are a member of, or about what fraternity they are a member of on campus.

And, admittedly, prior to the first SGA election, I was pretty clueless as to what SGA was because SGA was not a big deal at my high school. To be more truthful, I didn't understand the full extent of SGA until now while the SGA presidential race is happening.

Greek life isn't bad and those that are a part of Greek life aren't bad. The SGA isn't bad and those that are a member of the SGA aren't bad. It just feels like Greek life and SGA goes hand-in-hand for those that are independent and makes being involved on campus that much harder.

Those who ran for SGA will promote the fact they are a part of a sorority or fraternity, and thus, represent the student body; however, if only 20% of Troy's campus is Greek, how is this true? Something like this is what I mean. There's a lack of awareness that there is more to this campus than SGA and Greek life.

There just needs to be more attention brought to the lack of awareness of those who aren't Greek nor SGA.

For example, during Homecoming, independent organizations participated with the frats and sororities in events such as chalk the quad and making banners. Not one independent organization was promoted for chalk the quad, and I know, as a member of an independent organization, we had to ask to be recognized for winning a place for our banner. I am grateful that we were at least recognized but it shouldn't feel like fighting a war to be recognized alongside Greek organizations for completing the same activities.

This is an open plea to the new SGA President -- bring students together, all students because that is what will make Troy University a stronger college.

Moving Away From Your Hometown Is A Feeling Like No Other

This is all very new.

I've lived in the same town my entire life. I graduated from a high school I went to since second grade. I've grown up with the same friends that I have now, even though I've lost some along the way.

All of that is about to change. I'm moving within the next month over two hours away from where I grew up and away from my family. For some this may be scary, but I can not tell you how excited I am. I see this as a blessing and a beautiful opportunity to get to know myself outside of the walls I grew up in.

I can not say that I'm not terrified. Understandably, moving to a new place into an apartment can be very scary for someone who has never experienced something like this before. I'm stressing about things that I have never had to worry about before.

I'm worrying about furniture, money, and what rug would match the decor better. Seems a bit silly, but this is all new to me. I need everyone to have a little patience with me or with anyone going through a major life change like this.

Putting all the stress aside I know this is a big change that could benefit me greatly. I can not wait to make memories in a new place outside of the walls I've built around my hometown.
