Miss Kristen

Miss Kristen: Co-Owner/Operator/Lead Teacher

Hello, my name is Kristen Dionne. I am the co-owner/operator of RSG and Dionne’s Karate School. Teaching is truly my gift and fitness is my passion. I’ve been in the Fitness industry, working with children and adults, since 1996. You can find me in all aspects of Ready Set Go! Inc – as a children’s lead teacher, adult fitness instructor, as well as a youth and adult fitness trainer. It is a joy and a blessing to help the young and “not so young” become and stay healthy.

Mr. Steve

Sensei Steve: Co-Owner/Operator/Karate Teacher

Hello, my name is Steve Dionne or Sensei Steve. I am the co-owner/operator of RSG and Dionne’s Karate School. Karate has been part of my life since 1993. I am currently a 6th Degree Black Belt in Uechi-Ryu karate. Aside from karate, I am also a personal trainer as well as teach the Youth Strength & Conditioning clinics. Being able to reach children of all ages and personalities is my specialty. There is no child that I cannot reach. It is a true honor to provide a safe place where children can learn and grow.

Miss Celeste

Miss Celeste: Lead Teacher

I am a lead teacher as well as the Director here at RSG. Working with children has always been a passion of mine. I have always tried to teach & live by the “attitude is everything” motto. Although my background and “first love” is in coaching high school team sports, instructing younger children here at RSG has been just as rewarding. I have learned as much from the kids as they have from me. There is nothing more satisfying then making a positive impact in a child’s life (at any age)!



Miss Rebecca: Lead Teacher

Hi – My name is Rebecca. I am a senior at Methuen High School and plan on majoring in athletic training in the fall. I competed in gymnastics for 15  years and cheerleading for 4. Working with the kids at RSG is truly a blessing, watching them grow and mature into strong individuals. I love how fun and connected the staff and families are here at Ready, Set, Go! 


Miss Lauren: Lead Teacher

Hi- My name is Lauren. I am a senior at Central Catholic High School and plan to major in secondary education in the fall. I have completed eight years of gymnastics. Working with children brings a smile to my face. It is so rewarding to watch them grow in every class. I love being a part of such a fun and energetic environment.
