I’m more thankful for you and the person you brought out in me. Positive things about me are said to me and I don’t often see them, but NOW I do! Forget what the rest say, I AM a bad ASS! And Dee says so💕 much love and appreciation to you.Thank you for seeing so much in me and caring for me and my heart that much, to help me make the intelligent decision to forgo the Las Vegas show. What actually convinced me the most was that you said I was a “National Level athlete” in other words stay on THAT level and nothing beneath me. I don’t need to tell you because you recognized it, but I did EVERYTHING you told me to and then some. I put everything I had into it and spared nothing. For ME, but you know what? on all my preps I always did the same but NOBODY, no coach, has ever highlighted me, spoke about me or was downright proud of me AND let me know it. I am SO grateful that the Angels came together and had our paths cross, you are not only an AMAZING coach, you are an AMAZING women who truly loves this sport and makes it so that your athletes do too. You taught me techniques, tips, and cues that nobody else ever has, and more importantly you taught me things about myself with an emphasis on self acceptance and admiration. I FINALLY, am awe struck with what I accomplished, I LOVE the stage shots from NPC online, and YES just like some smart women told me………I BELONGED THERE! The Amateur OLYMPIA!! I did that, WE did that! It’s not pro status YET so don’t right me off, because WE will be PREPPING again-37 weeks to go, but who’s counting. Thank you so much again- See you after Mexico
Before meeting Dee, my days were shrouded in constant worry and unease. My name is Hannah, and for the longest time, I suffered from crippling anxiety. It affected my relationships, work, and overall well-being. Sleepless nights were the norm, and my energy levels during the day were perpetually low.A chance encounter led me to Dee, a fitness trainer known for not just physical transformations, but emotional ones too. I remember our first meeting: she looked into my eyes and said, “We’re going to channel your anxiety into something positive.”True to her word, Dee introduced me to a simple yet effective routine: every morning, before the world could plant its worries into my mind, I started with 15, eventually progressing to 20 minutes of cardio. It wasn't just about weight loss or fitness, but as Dee explained, about increasing dopamine and serotonin — the "happy hormones" in our brains.The first few days were challenging. My anxiety often made excuses, but with Dee's consistent encouragement, I persisted. Within just six weeks, not only did I see a reduction of 2 inches on my waistline, but more importantly, I began feeling a transformation inside.My productivity at work skyrocketed. Tasks that seemed monumental before were now completed with ease. Sleep, which had eluded me for so long, became peaceful and restorative. And an unexpected yet delightful change was the enhancement in my intimate relationship; my sex life became better, more passionate, and intimate.Reflecting on my journey, the physical benefits of the routine Dee introduced are evident, but it’s the emotional and mental transformation that has been truly life-altering. Every morning, as I lace up my shoes and prepare for my cardio, I'm reminded of how movement has been my medication, and Dee, my guiding light.
My prep coach and good friend Denise Bloom of Team Dee’s is a bad a$$ strong woman. She supports and encourages other women’s success and is happy for them. She also likes to celebrate Wonder Woman Wednesday. The other day, she saw me wearing my WW leggings and wanted to take these pictures of me. We’re silly like that. Funny story. Last week I found out that a woman made a comment about me. She referred to me as “the old lady Audrey.” I say funny story because there’s nothing old about me. Not at the gym, not during my photoshoots (clothed or not), not throughout the day… I know I’m not in my 20’s… but old? Far from it. But then I realized that her comment had nothing to do with me, but everything to do with her. Like I tell my daughters, if a girl/woman has the need to make you look bad, says unkind things about you, has the need to put you down, the reason behind it is because she wishes she was you, looked like you, had what you have, did the things you do… isn’t it sad? All women should be like Dee Bloom from Team Dee’s. Don’t be insecure, miserable, and uncomfortable in your skin, stop comparing yourself to others. Be happy with who you are, work harder to be the woman you want to be, and be happy for other women. We’re living this life together. There’s room for everyone.
The team was, badass… seriously. Even if I hadn’t won anything, I’d still be proud to be in the squad. Dee, Like I told you… you’re amazing and there’s a reason your name carries respect.
I owe you so much for all the confidence you’ve given me this year! I was so excited I didn’t ask you what I should focus on building for the next one.
Coach Dee, I just want to say thank you, me and mark are really grateful with all the help you did. We wouldn’t have done it if it wasn’t for your bad ass coaching. Thank you once again.
Dee,I say this to you every day and will continue to do so! You are the best coach in town! There’s a reason why when someone googles competition in Las Vegas your name pops up. The respect and reputation linked to your name is something that one must earn. And you definitely earned it! Your passion, your knowledge, your commitment… Since you and I started this journey together, I’ve always felt so safe! Because I knew you got my back and you were/are always there for me!You were the one that told me I should compete in Physique! And look at what happened. Coaching for you has always been about your athletes! It’s never been about you, or the money… you are a legend!I love you all! Be kind and generous to yourselves! We are so blessed to be alive, healthy and having passion to make our dreams a reality!
An expert at her craft, Dee is creating living art.I spent nearly a decade strength training to break free from nagging pains from my youth and met Dee as she began to coach my wife. After spending a lot of time building my knowledge base in resistance training, I found Dees expert knowledge extremely valuable.I began training with Dee myself around the time the pandemic hit and she prepared me for my first show in 5 weeks. Fast forward to my 4th show and she had learned how to train my body so well in 2 years that I earned my IFBB pro card!She’s attentive to your needs as you pursue your fitness goals and as you look to attain a better version of yourself. They say beauty is skin deep and the relationship and bond formed with my coach Dee definitely went deeper than the surface. I’m a more confident and disciplined version of myself with the aesthetic to go with it.I’m delighted to have found a great coach and a friend in Dee.
Want to know how I became an IFBB Bikini Pro at 55 ? Hell yes you would.It all started with my husband telling me I had the body of a Miss Bikini 2017. Well, I did not consider that until 2019 despite him saying otherwise. At first, I just had a regular trainer learning how to lift weights in general. After a year of that, my husband said that I need to get a professional trainer geared towards competition training. So< i interviewed two well known professional trainers. Hands down, I picked Dee Bloom because she really carried herself with total confidence, made me strip down to my underwear and looked me over very thoroughly, and she was an IFBB Pro body builder, who obviously had earned her Pro card with the dedication and knowledge it takes to turn Pro. Then the training really began with weights and cardio. She planned out every work out, organized a diet plan designed to get my body building muscle and losing fat. Dee's Passion for what she does shines through every action she does. But the posing is what wins between the top women competing for the Pro card. Dee being a dancer with formal training pushes your posing to perfection. Dee Bloom says posing makes or breaks the competition, and after my journey to the top , AI completely agree. My very first ;regional competition after only 9 months of training and posing with Dee, I came in first. Then 3 more moths of training and posing and I came in 7/11 in my first national competition after a total of only eleven months or training with Dee. Then more dieting, more training, more posing, and another regional nine months later and I came in first again. Then an intense effort for the next three moths, and ended up at the nationals in Pittsburgh. You really have to be dedicated, and focused on the goal of getting your Pro card. My incredible coach made sure she was with me the entire week with me at the National meeting. It turned out that that was very important not only for her to see me multiple times daily to make changes in the diet that needs to be spot on, but for my mental health and confidence knowing that she was there every step of the way. That in a nut shell is how I became Miss Bikini 55 + 2022 IFBB Pro. You need a partner that totally supports you and a very passionate knowledgeable experienced Professional coach that actually cares about you as a person.
Let me start off by saying I couldn’t accomplish what I’ve accomplished now in a year without Dee. When I came to her, I had a goal in mind, and my goal was to dabble in competing, and I knew I needed her guidance. After the first competition, I set a new goal…I wanted to become a pro before I turn 40! I knew Dee could get me there, and I knew all I had to do was put in the work and do what she tells me to do. So…I did!I followed her programs religiously. It was rough, and Dee makes you work hard, but that’s what I love about her. I needed someone to tell me exactly how it is and exactly how and where to improve without any fluff. I needed someone to kick me in the butt when I’m off my game and someone to remind me about my ultimate goals. She has done all of that.I trust Dee wholeheartedly, and I trust that she will get me to my next goal! She’s gotten me a lot further in such a short amount of time than I could ever hope for. I can only imagine how much further she would take me in the future.
