trainer DeAnna brings her passion and experience as a professional dancer to her work as an ACE-certified Personal Trainer. For the past fifteen years, she has held a private in-home personal training practice in the Greater Boston area working with athletes, dancers, and clients ages 8 to 80 looking for more effective and safer ways to lose weight and get in shape.
DeAnna has helped people lose 50 plus pounds, train for sporting events, get in-shape for reunions, eliminate blood-pressure and cholesterol medication, and cultivate deeper body awareness. DeAnna specializes in working with people with Parkinson's Disease. She consults with specialists at Boston University's Neurorehabilitation Center to create safe and effective exercise programs to help people with PD improve quality of life and slow progression of the disease.
Through the process of rehabbing her own dance-related injuries, DeAnna has worked closely with experts in alternative health care, including chiropractors, energy practitioners, physical therapists, massage therapists, and acupuncturists. This work has provided her an invaluable perspective on anatomy, kinesiology, physiology, and energy modalities which she integrates into her work with clients. By re-patterning movement behavior and correcting misalignments in the spine and joints she helps people rehabilitate chronic injuries and prevent future misuse. DeAnna loves helping people discover and redefine the true capabilities of their bodies.
DeAnna is currently Master Trainer at Donohoe Training, an Olympic-Level private training facility in Carlisle; and at Beacon Hill Athletic Club in Boston. She resides on faculty at Boston Ballet where she teaches core-strengthening and body conditioning to their professional and pre-professional dancers.
