ACE certified personal trainer

About Deirdra

I love being strong and fit with energy to spare. I want to help others experience this level of wellness. I was fortunate that my parents raised me to be active…I played tennis in the summers and figure skated and studied ballet in the winter. When I moved to California, I added road and mountain biking, taught Jazzercise and opened Fitness Break fitness center in downtown San Francisco. After the birth of my son, I sold the business and became an ACE certified personal trainer, an AIFE Older Adult Certified Coach and a CrossFit Coach in Marin County.

I want to help clients improve their health and fitness with strength training, aerobic fitness, healthy eating and if appropriate, weight loss. I have worked with teenagers to seniors, from brides-to-be to pregnant and post-partum moms and those with injuries or limitations.

A typical session will include strength training and metabolic conditioning of some kind followed by stretching and mobility work. If appropriate, we will plan meals and check food logs and take measurements. I can also provide "homework" workouts if desired.

Her instruction helped me regain a foundation of strength to do other activities on my own time. Not to be overlooked was Deirdra’s sound advice about nutrition. Even with a relatively healthy diet, there was no way I could “out-train” what I had been eating. I look forward to working out with Deirdra because she makes working out fun… I’m really happy with my results!
