Debi Cristiano offers a variety of fitness plans designed for the individual.
Since we change physically, based on lifestyle choices, aging and possibly injury, Debi works
carefully with her clients adjusting to these changes to achieve and maintain optimum health.
I have been a client of hers for 5 years now. She has consistently and effectively dealt with issues of flexibility, energy levels and weight management at my personal pace.
Naturally I would refer patients to Debi, as exercise is the second tenet of Traditional
Chinese Medicine immediately after food therapy. All tenets of TCM work together to keep
the body and mind in balance. Debi clearly understands the Chinese meridians and as a trainer
can utilize them to significantly relieve pain.

Debi is phenomenal! Specifically the reason why i choose Debi over all the other trainers i have seen and at times had is that she considers each person as an individual and customises each workout based on the person and where they are mind, body, and spirit.
What an amazing thing to see a=the transformation you desire with regards to your body and to not have to endure a drill sargeant during this process.

My relationship with Debi has been totally different from my past exercise coaches due to her intuitive approach to training. From my first session, Debi has customized and modified my workouts based on both my interest and areas needing the most attention. I have had chronic back problems for several years, and she helps me minimize these by working with me to strengthen weak areas and develop new habits to improve my posture and balance. She is an excellent coach whose approach goes beyond just physical exercise, by integrating mental focus, relaxation techniques, and self-awareness into her overall approach. Her holistic approach to exercise recognizes that achieving overall well-being requires ongoing alignment of mind, body & spirit, which for all of us is an ever-changing and challenging process!!

Debi is an amazing trainer. She eschews the lazy, one size fits all approach some trainers take to fitness and instead takes a holistic approach to wellness. This approach has served me very well given past injuries, frustrations, and my incredibly busy work schedule. I don't believe I would have stuck with my current program had I not taken this approach.

I have had the pleasure of training with Debi for over 5 years, and have been continously impressed by her knowledge and professionalism. She is a true professional. She really knows what she knows. Combining this knowledge with her sharp intuitive senses, she has assessed my challenges and addressed them systematically, with great attention to correct form, always encouraging me to dare to do more without pain or strain. She has patiently answered my numerous questions, and researched related topics. I have learned so much from Debi, and my body has responded positively through her instruction. I am considerably stronger and better balanced and more flexible. Debi has taught me what I needed to know to support my body and stay fit, sharing herself with confidence and competence. She is the BEST!

As a competitive runner I am always looking for new ways to improve and lower my times. When I felt as though I had hit a wall, Debi helped me work through. With her well guided-knowledge and advice on nutrition, as well as introducing me to new breathing techniques and unique stretches, she has gotten me to my peak health and fitness level, not only for running but in all aspects of my life. She encourages not only physical but mental fitness, and has taught me a method of positive thinking and attitude that has greatly improved my sport. Debi is also a passionate mentor as well as empathatic. Because she is constantly practicing and perfecting what she teaches, she is very understanding of every situation and struggle we as others go through. I am never afraid to look to her for guidance, as she always offers a creative and comforting opinion. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to enrich their lives, even if it is only in the tiniest way!

"My years spent training with Debi were productive in ailing my physical injuries as well as stimulating my overall sense of well being. I never left her studio without feeling better. She is a real "Intuitive" as well as possessing great knowledge. I love also that she is inquisitive and will follow up a session with more information that she has researched for you. Debi is the "real deal" and more."

“Meeting Debi when I lived in Florida was my good fortune. I began as her Pilates student but quickly I learned that she is a great intuitive listener and very knowledgeable. Debi encourages me to go outside my normal ways of thinking and expand my horizons. She inspires me to grow and search for knowledge. Debi is a woman of many facets who is extremely creative. In addition, she is one of the most dependable individuals that I know. She is a breath of fresh air and a rare human being.”

I have trained with Debi both in a private setting when I was healing a knee injury a few years ago and recently in a very small group setting. My experience with Debi has been nothing short of spectacular. Debi has a unique understanding of body movements and she can teach in a way that few possess. Her intuition is strong and she stresses over and over that this type of exercise & movement is not just about building muscle and endurance, but in re-training the body to move in its natural way. Anyone wishing to learn the right way to exercise without creating undue stress on the body and its joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments would do well to work with Debi.
