New Team Members!

Welcome Doug and Tim to the team of Odenton Fitness representatives here to help you!  Doug and Tim are both excited to meet each and every one of you, so don’t be shy, come up and introduce yourself!  Here is a little bit about Doug and Tim…


Odenton FitnessMeet Doug:

I have been a lecturer for the English Department and writing tutor at the University of Maryland in College Park since the spring of 2008. At Maryland, I am an Assistant Director of The Writing Center and teach Introduction to Academic Writing, Scriptwriting, Introduction to Drama, and African-American Literature and Culture. In 2009, I was awarded an international scholarship for my doctoral studies at the University of York, and was, until just recently, spending half the year in England and half the year in the United States in order to research and write my PhD thesis on political drama dealing with race. I am now, permanently, back in Maryland while I finish writing up.  


In general, I love to read, write, and work-out. I’m an avid runner and am excited to join the Club One team! I look forward to meeting all of our members. In fact, when I’m not working the front desk, you can often find me on a treadmill or lifting weights. Just look out for the orange cap; I’m always willing to lend a helping hand. 


Meet Tim:

Hello, I am Tim! I studied at Chesapeake Senior High School and am currently attending AACC studying Business. Throughout high school, I was in Dance Company which was my main fitness lifestyle of choice. It was a great experience and an awesome way to keep in shape through intense cardio as well as strength and conditioning. I remain active by doing lots of cardio but would like to get back into different styles of dance again. I look forward to meeting all of the members of Odenton Fitness and getting to know them, as well as see their progress through fitness!
