"I believe that Movement is medicine for Mind, Body and Soul"

Hi there! My name is Debbie Wastney and I live in beautiful North Nelson with my partner Gaz and our baby boys Austin and Luke. I am the proud owner and operator at my home fitness studio.

I am passionate about all things health & fitness and have been in the fitness industry running a successful personal training business for 4 years.

I have the BEST job in the world…Firstly as a Mum, plus I get to make a difference, making an impact on people’s lives for the better.

Health and fitness has always been important to me and after 20 years of full-time teaching in the Primary sector, I decided to set sail in a different direction to take my passion and turn it into a business where I could empower and inspire others to lead a healthy, active lifestyle and become the best version of themselves.

When I am not training, you can find me spending time with my family & friends, enjoying walks in nature, mountain biking, paddle-boarding or writing children’s story books.

I am proud to have opened my own private, boutique home studio. Investing in your health & fitness doesn’t just impact you…it impacts positively on those around you too.

You and your body are amazing… stop comparing yourself to others, wear the bikini, be happy in the skin you are in.

It’s not about being perfect…it’s about becoming the best version of yourself.”

We all have a choice.. Are you ready to become the best version of you?

I am qualified to offer a wide range of services such as…

  • 1 on 1 bespoke training programmes
  • Small group Circuit training
  • ‘Stretchercise’- stretch-mobility classes
  • Rehabilitation of injuries with physio guidance
  • Strength, toning and mobility
  • Aged care mobility in 2 local rest homes
  • Pre – Postnatal exercise classes
  • Online training
Become the best version of yourself!

“I have just finished the 8 week mums in motion. I was nervous to get started (9 weeks) as my fitness was not the same as before having bubs however Deb is such a friendly, knowledgeable and motivating lady and in such a lovely setting all the nerves went away! 
I enjoyed that everything was gradually stepped up and was not jumping straight into a full blown workout. I know what to look out for pain wise now and practical ways to use these skills in day to day life with baby all while regaining strength and balance. The best part was being able to have our babies there with us as it can be a struggle to do something like this for yourself as a mum. 
Deb was great at giving cuddles to keep the little one happy so we could continue on with our session! 
I couldn’t find any faults. I think the booklet is a great idea and the online videos were fantastic. Very easy to follow along at home between sessions. 
All in all has been a great experience and so looking forward to continuing on with Mums in Action.”

“Prior to training with Debbie, I avoided the gym and didn’t enjoy exercising. But now I love my personal training sessions with Debbie. She has got me moving again in a safe and supportive environment. Debbie personalises every training session which she delivers with enthusiasm and humour. Debbie has been instrumental in improving my health, fitness and overall wellbeing. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

“Debbie has been really thorough with developing and actioning my individual programme with me. I want to do my best because I can feel her enthusiasm and passion! She knows I can do this, and in turn I want to do it more! I like the way she listens and then intuitively tweeks the exercises to suit my muscles. I am turning ‘the marshmallow into gold!’ Thanks Debbie for being you!”
