Personal Training

Personal Training focuses 100% attention on you and your health and fitness - providing the education & support you need to set clear goals and take safe, effective and consistent action toward achieving them.

As an ACE Certified Personal Trainer (American Council on Exercise), a comprehensive approach is taken in creating balanced programs that include cardiovascular training, strength training, flexiblity training and basic nutrition guidance. The on-to-one attention you receive gives you a profile of your body today - cardiovascular health, muscle mass, postural analysis, body composition, and energy levels. From there, compare your results to suggested norms and decide what you'd like to accomplish: Lose weight, build muscle, tone, definition, decrease body fat, gain flexibility, develop better balance, and agility, etc... You'll learn the proper form, breathing & pace to exercise correctly, achieve success and work toward correcting any imbalances you might have along the way.

Are you an athlete working to excel at your game or to provide balance to over worked areas? Are you preparing for your wedding, reunion, or other special event? Whether you are just looking for a way to keep your active lifestyle fresh & fun while building in some definition or are exercising for weight loss and health related reasons, your plan is custom designed specifically for you. Your goals, your interests, your preferences and your input are what will create a program that is both effective and enjoyable!


getting started

Personal Training programs begin with a Design Session. This includes:

* Medical Clearance is determined based on ACE (American Council on Exercise) Certified Personal Trainer guidelines.



All programs begin with a Design Session. Along with your fitness assessment and goal setting, any health challenges or risk factors will be discussed. As necessary, medical clearance may be required from your physician for preventative input on modifications, restrictions and recommendations. If you are working with other practitioners, physical therapists, etc.. we will team up to co-ordinate a comprehensive plan to ensure smooth transitions where necessary.


integrative plans

Integrative plans may include yoga, pilates, wellness coaching or weight loss coaching component to help support you in staying motivated and achieving goals set for outside your, training session. Referrals to other practitioners may also be given to offer you the right support and guidance for areas outside the scope of this practice. With almost 20 years of experience in a wide range of fitness & coaching modalities, I share resources for other specialists in related fields such as nutritionists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, therapists, podiatrists, etc.. Feel free to check these out, or find the match that's right for you on your own.

I am a 77-year-old student of Debra Bennett. She works with me twice a week at our house, and has helped me steadily get stronger. Just what you want when you are 77!!

She doesn’t waste a minute of the hour she works with me. I can’t think of any better medical plan for old age than the opportunity to work with such a great teacher!

~ Barbara, Newton, MA

 I have had the pleasure of working with Debra three sessions a week for nearly six months now. I have hired a lot of trainers in the past but Debra's unique blend of all training disciplines makes her teaching truly exceptional and the results I seek much more attainable. I constantly am astounded at the wealth of knowledge and sophisticated methods she employs to help me with whatever issue I'm dealing with - surgical recovery, sports injury, losing weight, increasing muscle mass, stress management, meditation, etc.

Her consistent warm and cheerful, yet very focused professional style gives me great comfort that I am in good hands with Debra. I get bored easily in training and can lose interest which Debra manages effortlessly with a very interesting mix of yoga, Pilates, machine weight training, free weights, Bosu ball, life coaching, goal setting, and all things mind, body and spirit. Debra's training and knowledge are extensive and she is exceeding ly intelligent and competent. I give Debra the highest marks and look forward to many years of training with her!

You will be lucky to have her work with you!
