Hi! I'm Doreen

1-Doreen Jan 2022 100.JPG

I'm the Founder of UnFancyFitness & Just Move Health Coaching

I'm a former stressed-out control freak. And a few years ago it all sent me tailspinning into depression. In addition, my depression, anxiety and perfectionism affected the people I love and cherish. Everyday life was affected. Through it all, my workouts were the constant that got me through each day. Post-exercise lifted my mood as I experienced an accomplishment for my clients and for myself. Thank you, thank you for exercise!

But I couldn’t answer the one question that remained a dark cloud over my whole life. How can I understand and feel my own happiness? And guess what? After a few years of valuable therapy with the support of my family, the answer began to reveal itself: Accept “Good-Enough.” Finally self-acceptance. It took me over 30 years to seek help! So very, “better late than never." Exercise and therapy saved me.

We are born to move. Exercise doesn't have to be about pain and total exhaustion. Instead, think of exercise as simply more movement in our lives for both good and bad times.


Without regular exercise in my life, I wouldn't have had that one nudge in the direction that transformed me from hopeless to a life worth living.

Love Doreen’s fitness class. She always sneaks in balance when lifting and we all know how important that is. The convenience and benefits of a great work out from home can’t be beat. Thank you Unfancy Fitness!

When I have a not-so-good day or week, I just need to work off some steam or not have to think about other stuff. I can do that in Doreen's classes. and in my walks. My workouts with UnFancyFitness and walks are my time devoted to me."

"I started using weights with Doreen in her livestream classes. Ever since last year, I feel much stronger and have a lot more confidence in myself because I'm committed to working out for my own health. Thank you so much, Doreen. I couldn't have done it without you!"
