Know Your Instructors

This month we spotlight Alissa Mack as one of our Group Fitness Instructors!  Alissa has been with the West River Community Center since October 2007 and teaches a variety of classes, such as Fusion Basics, Cycle, TRX, & Pilates.  Originally born in Butte, Montana, Alissa grew up with two brothers and a sister.  Her family eventually moved to Bismarck, where she graduated from Century High School.  In 1998, Alissa, her husband, and 2 daughters moved to Dickinson.

When she’s not coaching her participants in fitness classes, Alissa and her husband, John, own and operate a couple of businesses in Dickinson, one of which is JAM Pest Control Inc.  Alissa also has her Real Estate License and works with Home and Land Company here in Dickinson.  You can catch them on Wednesdays volunteering with their local church.

Alissa is a fun and energetic instructor who will brighten any ones day!  She is happy to help encourage participants to better their fitness level and help them realize their true potential. When being interviewed, Alissa stated, “If we can better other people’s lives, life can be a better place to live.”
