MEET DEBRA TOUREK.
Debra is the energy behind Energy Pilates Fitness Yoga. One example, Debra greets and knows every single member in her classes by name, every day, all the time.
When you meet her your first time, you'll think you're seeing an old friend you haven’t seen for a while. When you come to your second class she will remember your name and ask ‘How is your son doing, better I hope!”; she’ll also remember you told her you were stressed out when you arrived your first class because of a business trip you were taking; she’ll ask how did it go? – and mean it.
Debra had a vision for a place where friends would meet to exercise together, have fun, support one another and feel a sense of community and so Energy was born.
Debra has been involved in the fitness industry in Woodbury for over 30 years. She taught her first fitness class when she was certified in 1987 and hasn't looked back! From teaching to managing to directing and hiring, she as done it all.
Debra opened the doors of Energy in 2008 and on January 2014, our new doors opened. She expanded and built for her staff and students, a huge, beautiful, state-of-the-art studio.
Debra has probably trained some of your favorite instructors in and outside of Energy! She has created a Training Board and conducts instructor trainings as well.
All programs and classes are developed under the guidance of Energy’s own Medical Director, Dr. Julie England MD. As the only fitness studio in the Twin Cites area with an MD on their advisory board, Energy strives for healthy fitness – not fads that fade.
No matter what your fitness experience is, no matter if you are an elite athlete or a real couch potato, Debra will give you a challenging and safe workout that will have you coming back for more.
Debra’s favorite sayings:
