Shar and Gene Dukart,


Ribbon Cutting


Shar Dukart is an enthusiastic entrepreneur with a passion for overall wellness, fitness, and all things spa. She also thrives on planning events such as wellness workshops, spa parties and weddings. Shar spent five years dreaming about owning a wellness spa and venue, accumulating lots of ideas along the way, before it became a reality. After graduating from Napoleon High School, Shar attended RD Hairstyling and went on to become a Master Cosmetologist. A couple of years later she earned a degree in Business Management from Bismarck State College. Her many years of gymnastics experience and coaching led her to bungee and aerial silks. After training in Minneapolis in Dec 2017, she became certified as the first Fly Bungee Fitness Trainer in North Dakota. She is married to Gene Dukart, owner of GD Cabinets and Construction and you will see that Gene’s craftsmanship is evident throughout the YOUvitalize facility. In her spare-time, Shar enjoys camping with family and friends and spending time with her husband, son Brian, and two grandsons, Gavin and Holden. She has dedicated YOUvitalize in remembrance of her daughter Brittany, who was a fabulous Master Cosmetologist and Nail Artist. Shar’s mission and goal for YOUvitalize is to provide a positive, fun, no judgement, community atmosphere where everyone feels welcome!

Tara Dukart,

Health & Habit-Setting Coach

Tara Dukart knows how challenging it can be to make changes to habits & routines, especially if they’ve been years or decades in the making. Stress, past hurts & struggles keep us believing things that hold us captive and negatively affect our thoughts, words, actions & relationships. Tara believes everyone has the right to experience optimal mental, emotional, physical & spiritual health. Although all people are perfectly made in the image of God, some of our actions & habits are not.  An effective coach can help you identify necessary habit & thinking changes and help you hold yourself accountable to your goals, much like a personal trainer. Tara is an International Holistic Management Educator, Speaker & Coach. She & her husband own & operate, where they work to improve health through faith-based, holistic approaches & decision-making. Tara is a former middle school teacher & current homeschooling mother of 3. She is passionate about helping women, parents & families improve the effectiveness of their communication, implement balance in their priorities &  routines, and make appropriate changes to their diet or lifestyle choices to feel better, sleep better & improve quality of life.

Schedule a complimentary conversation with Tara to explore a personalized coaching option for you.

Suzie Johnson,

Therapeutic Bodywork

Suzie is a graduate of The University of Mary with a BSN in nursing and has been practicing as a Registered Nurse for the past 19 years. Areas of her nursing practice range from ER to Hospice (and everything in between). Through hospice, she learned how powerful the simple act of human touch can be on the body-mind-soul. Adding Massage Therapy to her RN license created a well-rounded health and healing approach to extend beyond the walls of a traditional healthcare setting. Suzie is an advocate for anything and everything Holistic Healing and is thrilled to be a part of the Wellness Community that YOUvitalize offers! She sees value in both Western and Eastern medicine and loves to integrate opportunities for self-healing. The human body is an extraordinary gift with endless avenues for physical/mental/emotional/spiritual growth. Our bodies were created with an innate ability to heal through self-empowerment and healing presence. Suzie grew up in rural North Dakota in a farming community and developed a deep-rooted love for mother nature’s healing treasures. Healing medicinal herbs are her passion and finding ways to incorporate them into daily lives is her mission. But above all, her family is her pride and focus of life. She is blessed with a husband of 18 years, 3 amazing kids, 2 labs and a rabbit!
