    Hi Debra,

    This week I received a message from the fitness site and  typed in the following info below but it warped me over to a log into sign up page. I did not know how to post the info without signing up.

    Feel free to use the info. below  in any respect that would be helpful for you.

    Deb's approach to fitness strikes just the right balance of "let's have fun with this workout" and "okay, it's time to train hard". Her indoor cycling classes are a serious workout. I will say from my own experience as a cycling instructor that Deb knows how to push you just enough, and her music is always motivating (EVERYTHING in cycling class). She's a warm person who genuinely cares about your health/fitness development, and she'll make it fun!
