When training a client, she likes to focus on their goals and then establish a fitness program that is specific to their needs. Whether it be mostly strength, endurance, balance, functional training, or a combination of each, Deena is certain to cover every aspect necessary. She says, “Every person is very unique and has the capability of achieving their goals with hard work and patience. The most important thing I tell my clients is to have fun with every workout. Don’t treat it as work.”
Outside of work, Deena is very involved with her church and Via De Cristo. She loves to run and train for races. In addition to running, she is very passionate about climbing mountains. With each mountain that Deena climbs, she raises awareness to put a stop to human trafficking. She has climbed the Grand Tetons in Wyoming, the Rocky Mountains in Estes Park, CO, and Machu Picchu, Peru. In August 2019, her goal is to summit Mt. Rainier in Washington.
