Lessons from Our 77 Year Old Personal Trainer

Dee Simpson, the Vintage Fitness personal trainer that works in downtown Toronto turned 77 this week.  I am amazed at Dee’s energy, passion for helping other and contagious positive energy. Dee has worked as a personal trainer for 10 years which is her 4th career!  She role models staying active, vibrant and engaged as she inches towards 80.

Keys to Dee’s success:

  • She knows how to motivate and inspire others:  Clients are able to do what they never thought possible and realize how important staying active is as they age.  One of Dee’s clients has a wonderful expression when she exceeds her expectations “my god if you can’t motivate somebody to do something nobody can!!”
  • Literally walks the walk: Dee is an active cyclist, hiker and snowshoe enthusiast.  She is also an adventure traveller with much of her travel in the third world.
  • Cares deeply about her clients, work and community: Dee is a lifelong volunteer and always goes the extra mile for her clients.
  • Can have difficult conversations: these pivotal conversations allow her relationships to continue to deepen.
