Saltspring Personal Trainer Deb Leblanc
In my experience, exercise works best when it is simple and uncomplicated. Walk out the door and get moving! My personal training sessions use very little kit, mainly your own body, the park benches, and some simple resistance bands. The reason for this is that I want you to build exercise habits that you can do almost anywhere on your own, so daily fitness becomes an integral and natural part of your life.
Enlisting the help of a fitness coach is the ultimate investment in your health. A 28+ year Certified Personal Trainer, I offer Saltspring Personal Training Outdoor Fitness and Salt Spring Island Fitness Vacations in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
Founder of the original debfit®, I am a 25+ year Yoga Teacher, Personal Trainer, Weight Loss coach and published Canadian health & wellness author.
A Lululemon® Ambassador, I launched the successful downtown Vancouver Lululemon Run Club. I am also the Body Image Answer’s spokeswoman and featured FitList exercise how-to model.
In 2013 I was the head Yoga Teacher & Fitness Trainer at the private island resort, Parrot Cay COMO Shambhala in Turks & Caicos. Where I provided their exclusive clientele Personal Training, Private Yoga, Meditation & Pranayama daily group classes.
