Deirdre McCarthy

Personal Trainer
Southeast & armed Services YMCA

Degrees and Certifications:

  • NASM Certified Personal Trainer
  • Associate of Science from Pikes Peak Community College

Areas I Specialize In:

  • I specialize in strength training for weight loss and/or muscle gain, and HIIT training. I am also experienced in staying active during pregnancy, and regaining fitness gradually after (with medical approval). (These are things I am enthusiastic about and familiar with, I don’t have any special certifications here)

My Training Philosophy:

  • My training philosophy: Train for life. Gain physical strength and confidence, and gain strength and confidence in every aspect of your life. When we focus on building the new, we naturally shed what no longer suits us.

Interests and Achievements:

  • I lost over 50 pounds in my mid-twenties using strength training techniques. Later, I remained active through two pregnancies and enjoyed pregnancy and getting fit afterwards, with my doctor’s approval. The confidence I earned training regularly have improved my confidence as an individual, a mother, and a musician.
