Allow me to introduce myself, I am Raina Dolayi one of the Diva&Dude Aqua Fit Instructors. Since starting my fitness journey over three years ago I’ve seen many positive changes in my life!

So far, I’ve lost over 75 pounds, started a new career teaching fitness and noticed my overall health and self confidence soar. I now wake up every day excited to help others reach their goals and boost their health and wellbeing. I’d love for you to attend my classes at the Thousand Oaks YMCA.
