    When I met Debra I never thought I'd be in shape, much less athletic again. I had gotten to the point where I couldn't play golf properly, it was an effort to get up out of bed in the morning or even bend over to tie my shoes. Debra changed my life. She is a supportive, inspiring coach, mentor and teacher. There are a variety of exercises and routines to follow. If one routine doesn't work for a client she finds another one to do that makes the same impact. She is there the whole time - a real 24/7 teacher and coach. She inspires you so much with her passion to make you achieve your goals, in my case, I couldn't help but succeed. And she reminded me about what I forgot from my parents years ago about nutrition. If you do a lot of business travel you don't keep a regime about what you eat. Debra gives you boundaries as what you can and should eat, even if you are on a busy schedule. This isn't just a week, two or three course. Debra gives you lessons on how you should exercise, eat and live that are sustainable, and not just the latest exercise / diet fad. I recommend her highly.

    I was in town for a conference and had a 2 hour session with Debra. She took me through a phenomenal intense workout. She had me working every muscle in my body; I was feeling the muscle burn from the workout for 2 days. Debra gave great instructions and gave me a training regimen that I will be able to do in my own backyard or nearby park. Most importantly, Debra had a great atitude, was very encouraging, and was fun to work with.
