Debbie Doll Fitness Director

Philosophy

My commitment to fitness & nutrition shapes my job as a personal trainer. I joined the Delta Valley staff in 2015 as a Wellness Coach, and am now a Certified Personal Trainer & MX4 instructor. Along with an extensive coaching and management background, I received my Personal Training certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and completed two in-depth certification programs in Nutrition. I am passionate about helping people reach their individual goals, and believe that a healthy & balanced lifestyle with food and exercise can substantially improve a person’s life.  Outside the gym walls I love music, hiking, running, spending time with my family, and I’m an avid true-crime podcast listener. My favorite piece of advice is “You are one meal or workout away from being on track.”

Laralee Miller Personal Trainer

Philosophy

As a fitness enthusiast since high school, I have always believed in the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle. As a mother of three boys, I understand the difficulty of fitting in time for a lengthy workout. I respond to this conflict through my overall philosophy of quality and fulfillment of life, which is that health must become a lifestyle and not just a priority or chore. It is important to enjoy the journey we embark on to achieve our goals, whatever they may be, and not just to celebrate the result. I believe that the definition of “health” is balancing our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects to create the foundation of living a quality and fulfilling life.

Jennifer Lehrer Personal Trainer

Philosophy

I strongly believe that fitness and health should be enjoyable and have measurable benefits. Both fitness and health have always been a big part of my life. Achieving balance is challenging but fitness and health need to be a part of the balance we strive for. A fit and healthy lifestyle has such enormous benefits in terms of self esteem, stress reduction, and energy — things we all need more of to function on a daily basis. Trying new routines and workouts keep things interesting and keep us engaged in the process.
