Meet the Center Stage Founders

Owners Simon and Dawn Morgan are themselves accomplished bodybuilders who embody the competitive spirit at the core of Center Stage Gym, a competition gym.

Simon Morgan IFFBB Pro

Simon's journey into the world of competitive bodybuilding was an unexpected one, born out of a sports injury that forced him to step away from the athletic field he had long called home. A native of England, Simon's natural talent and determination quickly propelled him to the forefront of the bodybuilding scene in his home country, where he amassed numerous notable championships and ultimately attained the coveted IFBB Pro Status.

Seeking greater challenges, Simon made the bold move to the United States, where he immersed himself in the competitive bodybuilding circuit, managing several gyms in California along the way. However, his roots in England eventually called him back, and he returned to open his own gym in the historic town of Windsor.

After taking some time away from competition, Simon's unwavering love for the sport ignited a remarkable comeback in 2016. With unwavering dedication, he worked his way back to regaining his IFBB Pro Status in 2022, a testament to his resilience and passion.

Throughout his illustrious career, Simon has amassed an impressive collection of titles, including over 20 first-place finishes, several overall first-place wins, the coveted Mr. Universe, World Champion, National Champion, and various Masters titles. Even today, he continues to compete, driven by an insatiable desire to chase yet another World Championship title.

Beyond his personal achievements, Simon's impact extends to the countless individuals he has trained and inspired, never losing sight of his love for the sport.

Dawn Morgan

Dawn's passion for fitness ignited during her youth, leading her to manage a gym and work as a personal trainer for several years. However, her entrepreneurial spirit beckoned, and she left the industry to pursue her own successful business venture, which she ran for three decades.

After a personal struggle with weight, Dawn found her way back to the fitness world, determined to reclaim her health. Through unwavering dedication, she lost an impressive 60 pounds and embarked on a new journey as a competitive athlete in the NPC (National Physique Committee). Her hard work paid off as she secured a victory and multiple top placements in regional shows, ultimately earning the opportunity to compete at the national level.

Now, with her sights set on even greater heights, Dawn has transitioned to a more advanced category, rigorously training to attain her IFBB (International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness) pro status. Her journey is a testament to the power of perseverance, resilience, and an unyielding passion for fitness that has been the driving force throughout her remarkable life.
