    Debbie has been such an inspiration to me! She is an amazing instructor, she KNOWS her stuff! From the diet, daily meal plans, caloric intake, and getting exercise plans in place I have been able to get back on track with my weight loss goals and getting BACK to my exercise regimen has been rewarding as Debbie has provided me with all the tools I need to keep it fun yet challenging!

    Debbie is a first rate Instructor! I've had the pleasure of taking several of her fitness classes, as well as several of the martial arts type. She is knowledgeable, has great patience, and is never boring (something I always look for!). She always offers options within her classes so that anyone, from beginner to expert, can get a terrific workout. And we have fun while getting into shape, which is exactly what it's all about!
