About Me

Hi, my name is Deborah. I am an ACE certified personal trainer and certified fitness instructor. I am also an IFBB pro who loves competing in fitness. I just moved across the country to California as I have wanted to live here since I was a kid. I have over 10 years of experience in personal training, teaching boot camps, women on weights, contest prep, zumba, kickboxing, athletic conditioning and sport-specific training. I can come to your gym or home gym or do a beach training session . I can also bring equipment so you can feel comfortable training in an atmosphere you desire. I look forward to helping you reach your goals and make it a lifestyle change. I have had the opportunity to learn from some of the best and I am happy to share my training philosophy with you. Don't just look fit, be fit.

What to Expect

To gain awareness of your body, muscle strengths and weaknesses. The aim is to correct any postural imbalances and develop core strength as well as become leaner and more sculpted. I will also clean out kitchen pantries and could go grocery shopping with you to help you learn nutrition and how to fuel your body for energy. We want to develop life long good nutritional habits so you will develop more self confidence and empowerment.

Client Success Story

One of my clients has lost over 200 pounds and is now teaching zumba fitness and kickboxing to her own students. Two clients have worked out through pregnancy and have better bodies now than before children. One client is now a figure pro with OCB. One 60 year old client is now running 5ks having never ran a day in her life before and have incorporated weights into her lifestyle. Several are actively competing in figure and bikini shows. Some have gone on to become personal trainers themselves developing a passion for the healthy lifestyle.

First workout was excellent!

I would highly recommend Deborah!

Debbie is an awesome trainer and I miss her dearly. She is knowledgable, caring and focused on results. I'd strongly recommend her to anyone.

Kameron M. - March 23, 2016

I trained with Debbie for almost 3 years and only stopped due to schedule changes on my part. Debbie was from the very beginning a cheerleader for me. She was observant in recognizing my weaknesses and encouraging me to work to improve upon them. Her training was creative and fun. She was mindful to help me avoid injury. I found her incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of fitness and more than enthusiastic to share my fitness journey. Debbie kept appointments and always offered to make up sessions that had to be missed for whatever reason. During my time with Debbie, I was the strongest I have ever physically been and super proud of the way I looked. Debbie even incorporated running into my sessions, knowing that I enjoyed that activity. I highly recommend Debbie to anyone, at any level. She can get you to your goals.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Debbie, as a trainer and person. She transformed my body and taught me how to live a healthy lifestyle. She got me ready for my wedding despite a broken foot, got me back in shape after my baby, and got me in the best shape of my life. Most importantly, she became one of my closest friends. I miss her dearly and don't know how I will ever replace her. She is worth her weight in gold! Hire her today! You will be encouraged, taught incredible technique, and learn new exercises every time you meet. Debbie lives and breaths health and fitness. It is her life's passion! She has a heart of gold and cares deeply about each one of her clients. I think the world of Debbie. She is amazing!!

Deborah is an awesome trainer! She put some serious muscle on me. Always encouraging and well worth the money. It doesn't hurt that she's an IFBB pro, so she definitely knows her stuff.

Sherry G. - January 21, 2016

When I started out I was by myself and I was scared to go into a gym especially weights. I started with Debbie and she explained everything we were doing and why. It's very hard when you are very over weight and you think everyone is watching you but Debbie always made me feel comfortable, encouraging me and never let me give up on myself because she believes in you! I lost 70lbs. Thanks to Debbie.

Dawn C. - January 22, 2016

Debbie is patient and helpful. She plans for workouts that YOU want to do with your goals in mind and keeps them challenging and fun! Her enthusiasm is contagious!

Kathy L. - January 24, 2016

Throughout my 5 years of "trainer shopping" Debbi's is the best trainer that I've had. She's passionate about her work:
She wants the best for her clients. She will cater to each clients goals and has a unique way of forming workouts to tweak hard to work muscle groups. Her passion and motivation helped me to achieve my Figure Pro card during my first year of figure competing. She is highly recommended by me.

Amanda N. - January 22, 2016

My first encounter with Debbie was when I enrolled in her fitness class at the YMCA . Her enthusiasm and energy was infectious , inspiring me to push myself. I had been a runner and fitness addict all my life and never had I met anyone more knowledgable on all aspects of training. I soon became a client of hers working out on a regular basis for the past 5 years. I am almost 60 years old and consider myself to be the most physically fit ever. She fine tunes your workout to meet your specific needs and goals. I would encourage anyone no matter what your fitness level to train with her .

Melody R. - January 22, 2016

Debbie is a great trainer. She is very knowledgeable and helpful and pushes you to meet your goals. She knows exactly the right exercise that you will need to accomplish your goals and makes it fun.
