Based in Mammoth Lakes, CA




Hi! I’m Debbie North and that’s me, above, during a Lake Tahoe trail run. I founded True North Training to help people stay healthy and strong through mid-life and beyond. As a certified personal trainer, functional movement specialist, and nutrition coach, I specialize in helping my clients feel fit and confident in their bodies through the many changes in their lives. No one gets to mid-life without any health, fitness, or weight challenges – myself included!  Working together we will discover what you need to thrive in your life, not just survive.

Debbie is the best trainer we’ve ever experienced.  She finds the most effective (and fun!) moves to help us function to the max…She knows how to tweak exercises and movements in just the right way so we can stay active and feeling good despite old injuries or cranky body parts.

I highly recommend Debbie, and not just because of her well-rounded expertise in nutrition, kinesiology and exercise science across the lifespan. I recommend her because she’s great at gently pulling you along and showing you the potential within that you may not have realized was there.
