Life is a journey that doesn’t come with an itinerary.  We do the best we can, we all get off track now and then, and it’s OK to ask for directions.  

I can guide you.

Life happens.

When you work with Debbie you will put yourself back in the driver’s seat of your life.

You deserve to feel good in your body and enjoy life on your terms. 

When you work with me there will ALWAYS be something to celebrate.    

Hi, I’m Debbie North, a fitness and nutrition coach who works specifically with mid-life and older individuals to keep you active, injury free and thriving. 

I started my business as a second career almost a decade ago when I had my own wakeup call that left me feeling old as the hills and seeking a better way to live my life and feel my best.

I was in my late 40’s, working on stressful projects at work, taking care of my household, and training for a half marathon when my body crashed, giving me one heck of a life lesson.  I gained over 20 pounds before I finally pushed the pause button, quit my job, and learned how to optimize my nutrition and build my body back up.  As I found my way back to health, I also found a new calling: to inspire others to stay healthy and thrive through mid-life and beyond.

I learned a lot from that experience – and in the years since – and I want to share with you how you can transform yourself, lose weight, gain energy and build strength, so you can confidently tick all kinds of adventures off your bucket list.

I know it is so, SO easy to get stuck on autopilot with daily busy-ness, or put everyone else’s needs ahead of your own.  Before you know it one day you wake up and wonder what happened. 

  • Your joints might complain a bit more. 
  • You get winded doing things that used to be easy. 
  • Your waist size may have gone up a belt notch or two. 
  • Perhaps you are suddenly reminded of old injuries you’d forgotten about. 
  • Or the tried and true methods to drop weight fast no longer work.
  • This is your wake up call.  If you don’t make the time or space to take care of yourself now, who will?

Let’s turn this ship around!

I am a coach.  I know how to train you to get results.  I know how to guide your nutrition so you can optimize your health and wellbeing.  We can discuss time management, sleep, stress, and hormones. But mostly, I know this is YOUR journey and you need to figure out the specifics that work for you.  

There are times when I just want someone to tell me what I need to do to reach a goal, and when the guidance matches what I’m READYWILLING, and ABLE to do, it works like a charm.  But when it doesn’t match…I might as well bang my head against the wall.  Know the feeling?

Are you feeling ready, willing, and able to figure out what you need to feel your best and THRIVE living your best life?

The truth is, fitness nutrition and wellness aren’t as complicated as the media makes it out to be.

I start with movement patterns.  If you aren’t moving well, it doesn’t feel good to try to move often, and if you do try anyway, you set yourself up for injury, which leads to more downtime which kind of sucks.  I know you can do better than that.  I can help you.  Once you’re moving well we can rev the engine and see what you can do.

With nutrition, we get down to basics.  Really.  The basics are simple, but not easy: eating slowly, stopping before you get full, making good choices, understanding emotional eating, and building systems that support your goals rather than sabotaging them.

Without strong basic habits in place does it make sense to track calories?  I think not, so you won’t be using external measures like calories or points to guide you: you’ll build inner-resilience based on what you learn helps you feel your best.

Clients have said the greatest feeling of freedom is NOT STRESSING over calories, points and what you can or can’t eat.

There is no magic pill.  I’ve often wished for one too.  What the studies show over and over again is SIMPLE: 

Good nutrition and regular physical activity are the best medicine. 

Don’t get lost in the woods trying the latest fads everyone writes about.  They aren’t writing about YOU.  It’s time for you to write your own Owner’s Manual.

I can help you discover what you need to feel your best and perform at your best. Life is already complicated; let’s work together to make wellness simple for you, so you can stay on course and live the life of your dreams
