“Deborah is great to always have variety to our routines/exercises and it’s never the same class twice. So it keeps things fun and motivating. She has such a warm, fun personality which makes her the perfect fit for this role as instructor,” says Kerrilee York.
Deborah Christie, the JoyFit Instructor, is currently a teacher at Queen Charlotte Intermediate School. She has 26 years experience teaching health and physical education. In August 2013, she will be working towards a Fitness Instructor Certification under the leadership of Revelation Wellness, a non-profit ministry dedicated to educating and inspiring people to enjoy a healthy life, both from a physical and spiritual perspective.
The last thing you want when you are exercising is to be self-critical. Deborah doesn’t allow that. She is always telling them how great they are and saying things to lift their spirits along with their knees and arms. She tells them she is going to make Clyde River the fittest community on PEI!
When the weather gets warmer, Deborah is planning to have to some classes outside overlooking the river, so pretty soon the residents of Burnside Community Care Home will be able to see them across the way, if they are up that early.
