Strength Training in your 40's, as a woman, is very different than in your 20's. Please let me teach you the correct ways of strength training for women over 40 and how to eat correctly in order to get the results you desire. Hormones are a huge factor in a woman's life and I understand and have the information to help during this time of perimenopause and menopause. The major stages of the human lifecycle include pregnancy, infancy, toddler years, childhood, puberty, older adolescence, adulthood, middle age, and senior years. Proper nutrition and exercise ensure health and wellness at each stage of the human lifecycle. I am 54 and have been working as a personal trainer and nutrition counselor for 26 years. I have been blessed to work with women from ages 9-91. Through the years, I experimented, researched, and figured out what I needed to focus on as I get older. I know I could still work out like I did in my 20's but it would never allow me to achieve my health and fitness goals of building muscle, burning body-fat, having more energy, feeling great, and achieving my aesthetic goals. 









"I was frustrated, disgusted, and extremely self-conscious about my body, especially my recent addition of the dreaded menopause middle. No matter how little I ate or how much I worked out, I couldn’t seem to get results. I’d worked with trainers before and never got much out of it but decided to give it one more shot – and I’m so glad I did! Deb is definitely in a league of her own. She brings a level of knowledge, enthusiasm, and positive energy that is absolutely transformative. After seeing results within the first month of personal training, I was eager for more, and even though I considered myself nutritionally-aware and knowledgeable, I signed on for  Deb’s approach to healthy eating and her nutrition counseling. It proved to be a winning combination that I know will stay with me forever. Deb teaches you how to select and turn nutrient-dense foods into simple, satisfying meals. She urged me to stay off the scale and to measure my success by the way I looked and felt. And I felt great! Stronger, energized, and upbeat and I could tell my body was changing. Ironically, all these positive changes happened while I was in the midst of a personal crisis that without Deb, would have left me physically depleted and emotionally depressed. It’s a powerful testimony to the power of healthy eating and exercise, and few people know how to help others strike that balance like Deb."

Women over 40

"Personalized training sessions with Deb are worth the investment,  better than any free YouTube workouts because with her, our workouts actually happen! We make a schedule for the week and stick to it." Paula Kamen, 54, Evanston, IL
