Willpower will fail you.
Despite all our "diet foods" and despite all the money spent yearly on dieting, 66 percent of Americans are overweight and over half of those people are obese.
Did you know that the diet industry is a $54 billion industry with a 95% fail rate?
So what's the solution?
Changing your body composition by building muscle and utilizing fat stores for energy with exercise and healthy eating habits.
Unfortunately, even as people are trying to live a healthy lifestyle there is so much misleading and confusing information sabotaging their efforts.
Deirdre will help you by sorting through the misinformation and teaching you strategies to deal with the many sabotaging elements that are keeping you from a healthy weight and active life.
Personal training is available at your home or preferred location with all equipment and materials provided.
Health and weight management coaching is available in person, online or over the phone.
Deirdre's passion is to help people achieve a better
quality of life by reaching their health and fitness goals. This passion
developed as a result of the improved quality of life that Deirdre and her
husband discovered when they became healthy and active after years of
being obese and out of shape.
As an American Council on Exercise (ACE) Personal
Trainer, Deirdre started helping others to exercise and eat properly.
In order to be able to consult with people regarding all the issues - physical,
psychological, and physiological - that kept them from achieving a healthy
lifestyle, she also became an ACE Certified Health Coach and AASDN Nutrition
With 6 years experience, Deirdre's programs, which focus on balance, strength and flexibility, are
excellent for everyone including older adults.
