Some reviews from Deb's website, www.fitability.ca:
"With Deb I have overcome a number of physical roadblocks. I've increased my balance, core strength, flexibility, endurance and muscle tone. Her attention to proper form and safety are very much appreciated. Her sense of humour and kind way of motivating have helped me enjoy working out more than I ever thought possible!"-Jan. M.
"I have truly appreciated Deb's expertise in understanding my physical limitations and her willingness to research appropriate exercise, including talking directly to my physiotherapist. I feel confident in the programs she recommends and she willingly reviews and changes exercises as needed." -Cathy G.
"Deb Bailey has been my personal trainer for over 5 years. Originally, we started on a fitness program after I had a total knee replacement. Deb developed a suitable program in conjunction with my physiotherapist that greatly assisted with my recovery. Since that time Deb has developed a series of ongoing workout programs focused on strength training, tailored to work around other physical ailments that have developed over the years. She always considers whatever physical limitations that have evolved and devises workarounds in the custom programs she has created to ensure that you are training in the healthiest way possible.
Deb is constantly changing the programs to help focus on specific areas of weakness and always keeps the programs fresh, interesting and stimulating.
I highly recommend Deb to anyone that wants to accelerate their recovery time or to simply challenge themselves to become the fittest you can be." Robert M.

Deb does a great job at pushing you to do things that might be out of your comfort zone without going to far. Very knowledgeable and competent.
Deb has helped me a lot. I feel better than I have for quite a while. My satisfaction with the exercises has put me on the right track.
Deb is extremely knowledgeable and intuitive. She pinpointed issues that I was having even though I was unaware. She is a great combination of enthusiasm and gentle pushing forward.
I highly recommend her!
I have been working with Deb since last August. In addition to being a professional who knows her stuff, she is incredibly supportive as a trainer. It's been great to have programs tailored specifically to my needs. I am feeling so much better physically than when I started 10 months ago, and that has equally impacted my self-confidence. Thanks so much, Deb! More...
