HomeSpun Fitness is a back to basics approach to health and fitness developed from my years of experience, both as a teacher of effective, high-cardio workouts like Spin Step and Multi-Impact Aerobics, and as a strength trainer at the world famous “Pumping Iron” gym in New York. To help my clients reach their goals, including weight loss, toning, shaping, and life-long optimal health and fitness, I infuse all of my workouts with a specific balance of cardiovascular work and strength training. This philosophy flows through my classes and personal training sessions alike. I am certified by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and a member of the International Dance Exercise Association (IDEA).
Hosted in my professional studio that features spin bikes, treadmill, elliptical machine, and weight training equipment, my system is intense and concise, and only requires a 60-75 minute commitment, 2x per week, for tremendous fitness benefits. I offer private and semi-private sessions, as well specialty training and small group classes, to provide affordable options for all.
GROUP CLASSES: If you’re looking for a class that feels like a personal training session but is affordable AND has the added benefit of the strong bonds and support system found in a small class setting, then this is for you! With a designated time for your 2x per week, 75 minute workouts, we kick class off with 30 minutes of intense cardio, then go into a 45-minute strength training session, focusing on your lower body during the first of your weekly sessions, and your upper body in the second. Designed for maximum efficiency, group classes give you a great bang for your buck and fantastic results!
Spin & Lower Body Class Options: Pick your first weekly class at a time that works best for you on Mondays.
Monday: 8:15 - 9:30 a.m. OR 6:00 - 7:15 p.m.
Spin & Upper Body Class Options: Pick your second weekly class at time that works best for you on Wednesday or Thursday.
Wednesday: 8:15 – 9:30 a.m.
Thursday: 6:00 - 7:15 p.m.
Contact me for more information and to sign up for group classes.
PERSONAL TRAINING: Available for individuals or training partners who want a highly individualized, specialized fitness routine, I’ll design a personal program to tackle the areas that you want to improve most as together we set -- and achieve -- your specific fitness goals.

TRE is a revolutionary system of exercise designed to release deep muscular patterns of stress, tension, and trauma. The movements at the heart of TRE are based on research that posits that the body releases muscular tightness and calms the nervous system as a result of activating an innate reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating. This helps the body return to its natural state of balance and tranquility. Dee is a level one certified TRE provider.
EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE
EFT, sometimes known as “tapping”, is an ancient Chinese medicine technique to treat emotional AND physical distress. In EFT, ones fingers are used to “tap” on specific meridian (energy) points that correlate to the various emotions like anxiety, for example, like acupuncture without needles. It is believed that this practice can alleviate symptoms stemming from negative experiences and/or events that may then have resulted in emotional or physical distress or ailments. Tapping has a broad range of applications, having benefited individuals dealing with PTSD, depression, physical maladies, and many other issues.
Dee is a Level three EFT practitioner by the National Alliance for Emotional Health.
Not long after I entered the wonderful world of menopause, I began feeling as though I was losing control of my body. The tools I had been using to regulate my weight no longer worked and my muscle mass was waning despite consistent training. Enter: Isagenix. In 3 months, I lost over 20 lbs. It was the easiest and most effective program I’ve ever tried, and trust me, I’ve tried them all. I was only looking to lose 10-15 lbs but I felt so good and was happy with how I looked AND felt for the first time in a looooong time!
Now listen - every eating regime has its challenges. Having to change what you’re ‘used to’ is no easy feat. However, Isagenix made it as easy as it could be!
Unlike other programs, Isagenix doesn’t disrupt your digestive system or leave you feeling hungry. A combination of delicious AND nutrient rich meal replacements, intermittent cleansing, and all natural supplements kick your transformation into high gear. And after years of yo-yo dieting, I am happy to say I have kept that weight off for 3 years now and gained significant muscle mass!
