We’re a bunch of deadlifting, beer-drinking, trail-hiking, snowboarding, burger-eating fitness geeks who love diving into the science of performance to help you unlock your potential. 

We live to help others achieve what they never thought they could, so they can live larger than life outside these four walls.



Some people have the theory. Others have the lived experience. We have both. And we’re ready to share it with you. We’ll meet you where you’re at, and challenge you to become what you never thought you could.

We founded Beartooth Performance on the concept that fitness backed-by-science should be accessible to everyone. 

It’s our mission to debunk the slew of false fitness myths that plague our society. 

We deliver well thought-out workouts rooted in evidence-based philosophies that actually help you achieve the results you’re looking for. We’ll combat the bull$#it and deliver the good $#it. 



The benefit of fitness isn’t about being good at the gym, it’s about having the confidence to do whatever gets you fired up. People place frustrating ceilings on themselves, but we see their potential, and it’s our mission to help them until they do too. It’s never too early, and it’s never too late.


The most successful way to tackle nutrition is through an individualized, science-backed approach, that accounts for people’s goals and relationships, lifestyles and preferences. There’s no one size fits all, and we start with the smallest, most achievable habit, and build
from there.


A great Coach doesn’t just run a class, they curate an experience. Our coaches don’t motivate you by showing off their abilities, they motivate you by showing you yours. We believe that coaching is 85% about understanding people. 10% is technical. And 5% is about the music. You can always expect great music!


Meaningful relationships, connection, and culture make life meaningful. Doing something you’re passionate about also keeps life interesting, so we believe you should find something worth doing. And when you do, do it well. Work hard at it. Develop a strong work ethic and enjoy the adventures along the way.

Beartooth Performance 2023


Owner and CEO.

After finishing baseball and upon graduating summa cum laude with a Exercise Science degree, Dayne entered into the corporate world. After years in sales, Dayne dropped everything to start what we now know as Beartooth Performance. 

Growing up in St. Louis, he has realized how many more opportunities were available here in Montana. His mission ever since is to bring the latest evidenced-based training to Montana. While CrossFit allowed him the ability to open his doors, Beartooth has since evolved into an all encompassing strength and conditioning facility.

His passion for learning, fitness, athletics, and the way the human body moves provide a strong foundation for his athletes success.

For Dayne, the lifelong pursuit of how to intertwine knowledge, empathy, and communication is the key to becoming a great coach that unlocks people's potential. 

Don’t let Dayne’s love of fitness fool you though. He believes in balance, and his love of cookie dough and Star Wars makes that apparent. You can find Dayne coaching early mornings, afternoons, and evenings. Beartooth would not be what it is today without his leadership and commitment.

Sales Manager & Group Fitness Coach. 

Nicole found fitness a little later in life. It wasn’t until college that Nicole really discovered her passion for fitness and nutrition. While attending school at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, she was offered the opportunity to fill-in as the Group-Fitness Coordinator for UNLV’s Recreation Center. This position allowed her to learn the in’s and out’s of group fitness while teaching classes like Zumba, Pilates, Spin, Yoga and Kick-Boxing. It was during this time that Nicole first tried CrossFit and fell in love with it. Nicole ended up receiving her Bachelor's degree in Health and Human Performance from Montana State University, Billings. After graduating, Nicole chose the nutrition path, opening a healthy food restaurant offering fresh juices, smoothies, wellness bowls, soups, salads, wraps and more.

After 10 years of owning and operating her own business, Nicole has again found her way back to coaching and the fitness industry. Her favorite part of coaching is helping athletes recognize and celebrate their progress. You can find her working out in the wee-hours of the morning, often alone at 4am, before coaching morning and afternoon classes.
