Group Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer & Owner of Deborah Fleming Fitness LLC

 

At the age of four, I took my first Ballroom and Latin dance lesson; unquestionably this was the beginning of my pathway to health and fitness. I loved to move. I was motivated by music and I was always excited to perform and interact with other dancers. When I graduated high school I wanted to become a professional dancer, but the opportunity for a sixteen-year-old who lived in a remote village in England just didn’t arise.  At this time I was attending “keep fit” classes with my mum and I decided that this could be the next best thing to being a dancer; movement to music. And so I gained my first professional certification in Group Exercise from the Royal Society of Arts in London. During my time in London, an exciting opportunity to work on a cruise ship presented itself. I auditioned and was offered a position as Fitness Director with Celebrity Cruise lines. After a fun twelve months on board, I met my husband and we now have two amazing children together. After our second child was born I decided to go back to college and obtained a
degree in Further Education. This enabled me to share my knowledge and passion with students wishing to pursue a career in health and fitness. In 2007 I was loving my job at a local college as a professor of Health, Fitness, and Nutrition, but then a wonderful adventure awaited – I moved to the United States!

 

I have been a fitness professional for over 25 years working alongside individuals, groups, teams, coaches, and organizations globally. I am known for my dedication to providing fun, safe, and effective exercise for everyone. As an accredited personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I aim to engage people from all walks of life at all ages and fitness levels through energetic delivery, passion, and in-depth knowledge. I love being part of a strong fitness community and continually strive to make a difference in people’s health and wellbeing.

years in the health, physical education, and recreation industry. With a doctorate
degree in education, she is an avid reader of research-based content of all
things yoga. Ace discovered yoga in 2008 as a way to help ease back pain and
manage stress. While training in a myriad of yoga styles, Ace is a proponent of
