The Art & Science of finding energy at every age: Insightful hints for your organization to feel, move and perform better

Health affects your bottom line, personally and professionally.

We can hire and train effective skills in sales, management, and customer service but without good health we never really reach our full capacity or ENJOY the life we have!

Health is the key to happiness, success (however YOU define it), and productivity. It’s your bottom line and your bottom-line.

Your organization thrives when the people in it feel alive. But how can you help them feel alive for longer than just a couple hours in a live presentation?

By learning strategies, guidelines and 10-minute at-your-desk tips that you can use daily to create lasting change (even if your day is already jam packed).

I would absolutely recommend Debra. She is very knowledgeable and organized in her approach to her program. She is supportive in a firm gentle kind of way. We set realistic goals and I felt Debra was by my side guiding me through the process of accomplishing those goals. I knew Debra was the coach for me when I heard her speak at the Active Aging Conferences…”

Debra did a wonderful job of maintaining the attention of our Iowa PGA Members during her dynamic presentation. Debra’s knowledge of fitness and the mechanics of the human body are very apparent and she does a fabulous job of teaching both. The Iowa PGA is very fortunate to have Debra as a speaker for our education seminars and golf fitness writer for Iowa Golf Magazine.

We were truly delighted with how the Mothers, Daughters, Sisters, Friends event turned out! We can offer a nice venue, a little conversation and wine, dinner, a few exhibits, and do a little fundraising, but the impact of the hospital’s event on the community’s health came because you are the perfect person to deliver this very important message on living well. Your connection as well as your approach to wellness were the key ingredients for our successful event.

Working with Debra was easy and enjoyable! The pre-program video Debra provided was a wonderful way to promote the event. Our objective was to have women leave with knowledge, motivation, and tips to get them started living healthier lives – whatever that meant for each of them. Women loved the event.

7 Step Framework for Flipping 50

In this session I teach your audience the 7-step framework to feel good and look great, approaching or after 50 (the same framework I have used to teach thousands of women and trainers to flip 50).


There are 7 major ways to support fitness past the workout. Most women stop at 1! If you can’t exercise due to time, a condition, or illness, Debra unpacks the 7 was you can leverage your lifestyle beyond the workout.


How do you become your own personal trainer, nutritionist, and health coach? The flipping 50 workout plan will arm anyone with the exercise schedule they need today and next year to be their best.


The #1 Killer is, too often, you. Many women have said, “I used to lose weight easily, and be able to get results fast, but it’s not working any more.” So they quit or get tired and sick. I talk about how to change the strategy to win the new game.


How do you get your energy, body, and life back…and then some? Some exercise makes your life better and some makes you tired… what’s the difference? This session trains audience members how to craft their ideal workout based on their personal needs, goals, and preferences.


In this session I teach your audience how the hormone-exercise solution makes all the difference in stubborn belly fat, bat wings, fatigue, along with productivity, mood, and brain health. Why don’t cookie-cutter exercise programs work for you? You’re not a cookie.
