Boot Camp + Personal Training
James discovered his love of fitness after leaving the business world some eight years ago. He became passionate about circuit training and immediately felt at home as a boot camp instructor and personal trainer.
In the past few years, he has added indoor cycling and yoga to the mix — and learned that the balance between these varied workouts is essential to good health.
James has earned certification in Functional Movement Systems, NASM personal training, and NASM Weight Loss, equipping him with the tools to find the very best approach for each and every client.
“I know exactly what it feels like to be behind a desk all day. My goal is to make my clients feel energized, stronger, and pain free — all while having fun at Crisp!”
Debbie has always been drawn to physical fitness, but her workout routine didn't address an underlying anxiety. That's where yoga came in. Discovering yoga some 20 years ago completely transformed her life, bringing her the inner peace she'd been seeking for so long. She wanted to share this discovery with others, and left a career in the financial industry to study and teach yoga.
Debbie completed her first 200-hour teacher training course based on Ashtanga Yoga in 2003. She later studied with David Swenson, and then in 2011 went on to complete her second 200-hour teacher training in Vinyasa Yoga with Jacqui Bonwell. A few years ago she completed training in Creative Kids Yoga at Kripalu. And in 2016, she immersed herself in an intense 500-hour training session with Jacqui Bonwell.
Debbie's goal is to help her students not only become stronger and healthier physically, but to gain the inner peace, confidence and happiness they deserve.
