Anytime Fitness trainer gets certification, clinic adds pediatric dentist, Weatherly elected to national board

Buren now TRX-certified

Anytime Fitness of Sequim announced last week that fitness coach/personal trainer Marcus Buren II recently completed a workshop and certification process for the TRX Suspension Training System.

TRX is a method of training which focuses on movement rather than muscle, resulting in functional strength that can be applied in daily life, preventing injury and improving performance.

“I just want to become as effective as possible at helping our clients get the results they’re after,” Buren said.

As a member of the Anytime Fitness coaching staff, Buren is required to participate in regular continuing education and certification to enhance his skills. Call 683-4110.

Clinic adds pediatric dentist

The Jamestown Dental Clinic adds Dr. Bri Butler to its staff in September.

Butler was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, completed her undergraduate education in San Diego, Calif., and returning to Washington to complete dental school, pediatric residency and a Masters of Science at the University of Washington.

During her time in dental school, Butler completed her internship at the OlyCap Dental Clinic in Port Angeles.

As a pediatric dentist, she has specialized training in cavity prevention, behavior management, sedation and dental care under general anesthesia.

Butler will treat children ages 1-12 and patients with special needs. Reach the Jamestown Dental Clinic at 681-3400.

The clinic accepts private insurance as well as Apple Health for children.
