I've made my career in the fitness industry for over two decades. Scooped up and trained by the "Godmother of Aerobics," Gilda Marx (who taught high-profile fitness gurus like Richard Simmons and Jane Fonda), I've taught in top resorts, clubs, fitness studios, and gyms nationwide, from New York and Florida to Dallas, and now, Los Angeles. Having worked in so many diverse settings with hundreds of clients, I understand the downfalls of the "gym mentality" and the pitfalls of sustained fitness. The cornerstone of my philosophy is the integration of strength training with cardiovascular work. This approach, along with an open mind, open heart, and open door to anyone who desires a fitness connection that works, is how I help my clients make fundamental changes to their health and fitness – for lasting results.

  • I started working with Dee in my sophomore year in high school, and by graduation had dropped four sizes!  Now I maintain a lifestyle that is healthier overall. That’s a gift for life!  ~ Casey
  • Dee rocks! I’ve been going to her for spinning for almost four years.  Once you get into the process, you’ll be addicted too! ~ Patrick
  • Dee will have you make an inch modification in your body position, and it’ll make the world of difference in effectiveness, as well as the safety of your workout. ~ Carol
  • Working with Dee is always a positive experience. I always leave feeling challenged yet successful. ~ Steve
  • I started to see a difference in my body in the first month of training with Dee.  My body is more tone, my clothes fit better, and I have more energy to chase my four-year-old around. ~ Karen
  • It wasn’t until I began training and spinning with Dee that I got the results I really wanted. Her positive attitude and the intimacy of her classes makes working out a pleasure. ~ Donna (an MD)
