Hi, my mum has been extremely dedicated to learning all she can to better herself as a Pilates instructor. She's amazing for people of all levels of fitness. I've been to a few of her classes at her gym, she has trained me one on one, as well as adapting home exercises and positions to entertain my daughter. She has shown me that Pilates doesn't have to be the stereotype most of us think about. She makes her classes very fun, brings her own element of relaxation and knows when to push or regress movements for clients based on their personal abilities.

Deborah has shown herself to be an awesome and caring pilates trainer who takes into account the special requirements of older or inexperienced adults. Her classes are fun and informative and also catered to various fitness levels through the use of different options. As a personal trainer she also has a strong focus on providing strength and agility to older adults and those recovering from injury. Her enthusiasm is infectious and the classes seem to love her. I would highly recommend her services to anyone new to fitness or returning after a prolonged absence or injury.
