This is Debi's third or fourth career change. The profession this time chose her, she didn't choose the profession. About five years ago, Debi found herself frozen and wallowing in self pity because of the pain she was in. After years of searching for the right doctor to tell her why she was in so much pain and why she couldn't move, she met a doctor that told her the only cure was to exercise, eat right, and get plenty of sleep! She really thought this doctor was like all the other; crazy and pulling the diagnosis out of a hat. Debi was diagnosed with fibromyalgia (a non-articular rheumatic disorder characterized by pain, tenderness, and stiffness of muscles and associated connective tissue structures.) But this time the doctor was right. After many hours of physical therapy, and a lot of hard work in the gym, Debi has turned her life around. She is now in great health and can deal with the pain that her condition leaves her with. Debi graduated in May of 2005 from Lake Washington Technical College. She has an AAS Degree as a fitness Specialist. In July of the same year, she received a Certificate as a Personal Trainer from the American Council of Exercise (ACE). She also has a certificate with Resist-a-Ball, Heart Zone, and Zumba. Debi wants to take the knowledge that she learned through her life from an unhealthy adult to one that can do anything you put your mind to. It's never too late to get started. If you are the type that thinks nothing is going to work for you, or what can I do, I'm too out of shape, talk to Debi. She can help!
I want to help people see and feel the benefits of being healthy through education, exercise progressions, and goal settings. Let's make the next stage of life the best stage of life!
