Fitness Motivators Since 1995

Debbie has been teaching fitness for over 33 years and joined Donna in 1995 to help make Fitness Motivators a successful, proven-results company. Debbie’s specialty is Z-Box Fitness, Zumba, kickboxing and motivating others. Debbie was the first to offer kickboxing at the Oakland Community College campus in the early 2000.

January, 2008, Debbie created the Zumba of Michigan website for Michigan Zumba instructors to network and students to find instructors.

Not only Debbie is the photographer of 99% of our website photos, she is also the co-creator of Fitness Motivators newest program Z-Box Fitness®. This program is offered as a CEC training tool for instructors to teach around the country!

Around 2002, with her twin sister Donna, they decided to blend their specialties together and design a program called Z-Box Fitness. Donna had a special interest in yoga, dance, and body toning, while Debbie had a special interest in boxing, Tai Chi (they used to watch their grandfather practice Tai Chi as young children) and dance. They fused these program together and had different names for this program "Dance Fitness, Total Fitness, etc, before the name Z-Box Fitness (which means Z.E.N. BOX - the Z.E.N. stands for Zone Envision Nature) was born.

Debbie's classes are funky and energetic! But, not only does Debbie teach fun classes, she is also multi-talented. Debbie is Fitness Motivators' personal photographer and fund raiser event planner. To learn more about Debbie and to see a few samples of Debbie’s art and photography work, please visit Debbie’s personal website by clicking the links below.

Debbie is a professional artist and is planning to show and sell her work (one day soon we hope) at art fairs. She specializes in wildlife with women in beautiful gowns that she designs directly on the canvas. In the 1980s, Debbie designed clothes and sold them in local stores and had over 200 fashion shows that showcased her original designs. You could view a few of her pieces by clicking on this link.

Debbie and her husband, who is a Chiropractic Physician, keeps healthy and fit by exercising together (when Debbie is not teaching one of her classes) and by trying to eat right.  They own a clinic in Brighton and now offer science-based nutrition, health testing, vitamins and supplements, as well as chiropractic care. They have two grown children and grandchildren. Their motto in having a successful marriage (25 years and counting):  You must have true love for one another in order to get through the obstacles in life. A lot of the time couples break up for the wrong reasons or they stop trying. We believe in love and we believe in a lot of laughter! Visit their website by clicking on this link
