As a zealous, life-long adventure traveler and volunteer – with overriding passions for helping others and anything active in the great outdoors – Dee leapt into her fourth career as a fitness professional at a time when most are slowing down! For the decades previously, she ran two very successful film-production companies, was an award-winning documentary film maker, a university lecturer and a medical illustrator in South Africa, France, Canada and her native Britain.
Wholeheartedly ‘Walking the Talk’, Dee had the audacity to run her first marathon at 61 years young – winning her age group and qualifying for the prestigious Boston Marathon. This instigated a commitment to use her age, enthusiasm and boundless energy inspire others to succeed – often far beyond their goals.
Her personal approach to fitness training is in the motivation and training of those who think they can’t – while loving the challenge of working alongside those who know they can!
So who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!?

Dee gets recognized
The Ontario seniors secretariat is recognizing vibrant seniors as a celebration of June as senior month.
Have a look at a video of Dee to see what a energetic, passionate personal trainer she is.
Thanks a million for the goodies (and the book).
We love working with you and we'll miss our sessions while you're away. I have to admit that normally
I would be thinking about quitting at this point but, you're the best at motivating and inspiring.
Have a wonderful holiday. You'll have to tell us about your travels when you return.
