    I have been working with Pam for several months now and couldn’t be happier about my time with her. She is a fantastic trainer, mentor and motivator. I rarely enjoy going to the gym, but I look forward to my sessions with Pam. Her private, home gym is extremely clean, comfortable, welcoming, and makes for a perfect workout space.
    Pam stays on top of me to ensure proper form and works hard to prevent me from throwing my back out!
    She pushes me just enough and I am thrilled with my progress. The addition of chit chat and laughter every time makes for an even better experience. Training with Pam was exactly what I needed in my life!

    I have been working with Pam for over a year now. She is fantastic to work with and keeps me focused. I am a "difficult" client with a busy schedule but she works with me and we figure out a way to get it done! My strength and stamina has improved tremendously. When we first starting working together I had a limp due to hip issues. I no longer have that issue and we continue to work this area so I don't have future problems. She makes you work really hard but my favorite part is we find a way to laugh every single time!!!

    I have worked with Pam on an almost weekly basis for one year. My goal has been to increase overall strength- especially core strength, increase muscle mass, and prevent injuries. I am a marathon runner and triathlete, but I have experienced multiple runner's injuries (such as plantar fasciitis, iliotibial syndrome, piriformis syndrome and hip flexor problems). I have found training with Pam has accomplished my goals. I have not had any runners injuries since working with Pam. I've increased my core strength and increased lean muscle mass. Pam is very knowledgeable and conscientious. Her constantly varying workouts are fun and challenging. Her exercises and equipment are always changing; from resistance bands, to suspension rope straps, to kettle bell, to weights, to Tabata training (high intensity interval training), to agility training w/ training ladders, to boxing, and much more! Pam regularly adjusts her workouts to be challenging. She checks in with me after training sessions to make sure her modifications were appropriate for my body. She also can provide nutrition education. I have found she promotes a mindfulness approach and attention to daily living. I regard her as a friend and mentor, and would highly recommend training with Pam.

    I've worked out with Pam for the past year and a half, and it's been a wonderful experience. Pam is adept at understanding what motivates her clients and at getting to the heart of what we want from our workouts. She consistently encouraged me to think about the end results I wanted to achieve (to be stronger and leaner) and challenged me to keep making progress. When I mentioned to her that I'd always wanted to run a 5K -- even though I didn't consider myself a runner -- she encouraged me, helped me train for the race, believed in me and ran alongside me on race day. My framed race number now sits in my office as a reminder that we can break through our self-imposed limits, particularly with the encouragement, support and expertise of a trainer like Pam. I can't recommend Pam highly enough to anyone looking for a trainer whose sole focus is helping clients meet their goals in a positive and encouraging manner.

    I have experienced an AWAKENING working with Pam for the past year. I had worked with other trainers for over six years and got some good results; however, since training with Pam my results, my motivation, my fitness knowledge and most importantly, my awareness of my body have increased immeasurably. Pam has taught me the importance of good form when performing an exercise. Pam has taught me to "feel" the different muscles working within my body and how small adjustments in form can mean the difference between a good workout and a tremendously awesome workout! I can now see my muscles at work and marvel at curves and definition that I haven't seen since my 30's. Pam personalizes each and every workout for each and every cookie cutter routines. I like, too, how she is constantly changing up workout routines so nothing becomes rote and boring. I don't hear, "We will do this for 6 weeks and then move on to something more...". Pam keeps my sessions fresh and challenging. We talk about goals on a weekly basis. Pam has helped me through a three week bout of an aching hip even going so far as consulting with my chiropractor to get me safely back in top shape in the shortest amount of time. I raise questions about fitness and health as I get closer and closer to the big 60, and if she doesn't know the answers, she sends an email later in the day as follow up. Pam is truly an EXPERT in her field as a personal trainer, a great listener, awesome coach and good friend. I look different, I feel different, I know more about my body and fitness than I have ever known in my life. I feel alive, healthy and very happy. All I can say is this...Thank you, Pam! For anyone reading Pam NOW. Stop drudging through workouts with other trainers, make a change, experience an will NOT REGRET IT!
