I had a consultation with Tammy and never looked back

 
"I have been working with Tammy Deeb for the last several months and couldn't be happier.
 
With my 50th birthday approaching, the thought of entering that decade overweight, out of shape, breathless, clueless, and generally miserable was just too much to bear. I had a consultation with Tammy and never looked back.
 
She's inspired me to do things that I did not think I could do, while never once making me feel foolish. She's made me believe that I can do things that women half my age can do. And with her help, I am.
 
She's a stickler for good form and technique and because of that I've never sustained an injury. She's professional and dedicated. She's tough, without being punishing.
 
I wasn't sure what to expect, but so far this experience has far outweighed by hopes. I've lost 25 pounds, not to mention significant inches, and plan my day now around what time I'm going to the gym instead of what I'm going to watch on TV.
 
Hiring Tammy as my training is the best thing that I've ever done for myself. Her motivating personality is reason alone to want to meet her every week at the gym, and her guidance and training are really icing on the (low-calorie) cake!"

It's never going to get boring because ... she's truly engaged in every session you have with her

"Tammy Deeb is a GREAT personal trainer! She's passionate about her clients' health and passionate about staying on top of the latest trends and information about training.

Tammy's approach is holistic. Training starts by her taking the time to understand each clients' needs -- to analyze posture and any physical limitations and use that as a basis for training. I know this all too well as I've had back issues for close to twenty years. I won't tell you that Tammy cured me, but I will tell you that, through training with her, I came to a body awareness that has helped to keep me safe and pain free (unless doing Pilates with her, for which I have to warn you she tried to kill me ... run for your life!).

"Unlike other trainers I've worked with over the years that come up with a set routine and just walk along with you from machine to machine, or dumbbell to barbell, and tell you that this is what you'll be doing for the next four to six weeks and then they keep you company for an hour -- each time you work out with Tammy it's different. It's never going to get boring because she has such a wealth of information, she makes it fun, and she's truly engaged in every session you have with her.

"And you'll get results! Results that you'll see and, more importantly, feel. I cannot recommend her highly enough."

If there was a Fountain of Youth, it would have to be Tammy Deeb

If there is any such thing as a "Fountain of Youth" it would have to be the personal training received from Tammy Deeb.
 
By the time I hit 48, I had a double complete hip and joint replacement. Prior to my surgery, I was walking with two canes. I thought that after the surgeries I would be able to perform better, this was true to a point, because as the doctor told me, I still has osteo-arthritis so the replacements would help to a point. Because of the arthritis my hips would only regain so much movement and no more. I was feeling my age and I thought this was it ... I might as well act "mature" if you could call it that.
 
Then I met Tammy. I signed up at a gym for the first time in my life, and needed a trainer. I signed on with Tammy who immediately looked at what my situation was and began to put together a program for my lifestyle. She contacted my doctor to see what the requirements and/ or limitations would be for me and we went from there. Slowly I started to regain movement and strength in my legs, which seemed also to give me more confidence. Tammy started to put together "Workout Routines", which would allow me to workout on my off days in the gym. Along with the movment and strength I started to lose weight, a big side effect to working out. In one year's time, I lost over 70 pounds and went down six sizes.
 
Then more and more I started to get used to the more twists Tammy added so that "plateauing" wouldn't happen. When summer came we added "Power Walking" to the routines, utilizing the Deer Island Scenic Walkways. Tammy figured if I wasn't able to run at least I could power walk, and I thought the same. She incorporated more "cardio routines' and regularly reviewed old routines to make sure I was still in form. Tammy never understood the words "no" or "can't". If I thought I couldn't do something, Tammy wouldn't accept it, she wanted to know why, and worked out what I must do in order to achieve it. "Can't" and "no" are definitely not part of Tammy's vocabulary.
 
It is now a year and a half later. In this time I have lost weight, sizes, bad eating habits, canes, and a poor outlook on my life, and I have gained much. I have gained strength, endurance, confidence, pride in myself, energy and a postiive outlook for the rest of my life. I truly do not feel I am pushing 50. Yes, if there was a Fountain of Youth, it would have to be Tammy Deeb.

Understanding my personal fitness goals, Tammy created a comprehensive and realistic fitness and weight loss program that fit into my lifestyle. Our routines are constantly evolving according to my personal progress and the short-term goals we set. The results I gained with Tammy have surpassed my highest expectations.
 
I started working with Tammy as part of my New Year's resolution to lose weight, get in shape, and improve my overall health. Before working with Tammy, my workouts had no real focus and I lost all motivation to go to the gym. I had tried to lose weight and get in shape on my own, but without any real success. Understanding my personal fitness goals, Tammy created a comprehensive and realistic fitness and weight loss program that fit into my lifestyle. What I like the most about working with Tammy is that we cover every aspect of weight loss and fitness -- from making better food choices to managing stress to setting attainable goals. Our routines are constantly evolving according to my personal progress and the short-term goals we set. Tammy has been instrumental at keeping me motivated (which is always a challenge) throughout our sessions. In three months, I have lost 20 pounds, several inches, and feel stronger and more energetic. The results I gained with Tammy have surpassed my highest expectations.

Tammy has helped me to turn my life into a healthy lifestyle

When I started training with Tammy I was overweight with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Since then my cholesterol is now at a normal reading and my blood pressure has been regulated and I am almost completely off my blood pressure medication.
 
Tammy has helped me to turn my life into a healthy lifestyle and without her training I would probably still have medical issues. I have also lost almost all the weight that I wanted to.
 
I would say to people, train with Tammy and get healthy. She has been my shining star and is the best trainer and a great person.

I'm happy to say that, at 80, I am very pleased that you have been able to provide so much guidance and training to keep me strong and healthy. It was a surprise to find that my recent bone density test showed an improvement in the spine rather than further deterioration. Life is good!
~Marilyn M
Age 80

Marilyn sought out a personal trainer because she suffered pain while walking short distances. Chronic back pain from spondylolisthesis was slowing her down, but she had too much to do, including extensive travel, to give in to it.
 
Marilyn, found Tammy, who was moved by Marilyn's passion for action and adventure. Tammy developed a fitness plan that focused on core awareness and engagement while functioning in Marilyn's everyday life. Whether making her bed, putting away groceries, swimming, or walking, Marilyn's fitness routine keeps her aware of maintaining a neutral spine and good postural alignment in everything that she does. The result: after working with Tammy for only ten weeks, Marilyn walks pain free.
