I strongly believe that all my clients can reach their fitness goals. Every persons body is different and there is no one size fits all approach. I take the time to learn about my client's needs and abilities before beginning any fitness program. Being fit & healthy is a lifestyle and it takes time to get there, but it is a very rewarding and fun journey. Please contact me for a free consultation and free 30 min workout ... because the time to start is now.

    I was recovering from surgery and wanted to find my way back to health. I'm so glad I found Pascale. She's upbeat (but not obnoxious) and so great for older people or people who are a bit afraid of exercise and feel like they need to ease into it.

    She modifies exercises if they're too hard (or too easy!!). She respects limitations and doesn't sneer at them, but also manages to push. It's a fine balance and she does a great job of not letting you be lazy but not torturing you either. She's really good when you say, "this hurts my back/hips" -- she'll quickly come up with another exercise or variation that does the same group of muscles without pain. I've had a personal trainer in a gym before and this seems much more thoughtful and designed for my various issues. Now that I'm healthier (thanks, Pascale!) my training is changing with my needs.

    She's not just for people who are out of shape or need lots of encouragement to move. Pascale trains a friend of mine at the same time, and that friend is in great shape. She ends up happily exhausted, so she gets a workout that fits her needs too.

    Pascalle is by far the best personal trainer I ever had! She works with my problem areas and really listened to my needs . She does routines that are fun and never boring ! She's taught me had to food prep for the week to be prepared to not grab the wrong foods . I've lost weight and I'm feeling more tone . She is full of energy and very positive . I would highly recommend her, you won't regret it !

    Pascale and I have worked together for approximately 6 months and I'm happy to report I feel better and stronger. My cholesterol and triglyceride levels are down due to our weekly exercise routine and her dietary counseling. Pascale is committed to improving the physical health and wellbeing of those she works with by example, encouragement and counseling. Thanks Pascale!

    I wish I could give her 10 stars!Pascale is absolutely wonderful. I used to hate working out but she motivates me and keeps me challenged. I have been working out with her since March and no two work outs have ever been the same. I have had problems with my shins while running and Pascale took the time to work on my form. I am now able to run without the pain. So lucky to have found her!!!!!

    My weekly sessions with Pascale have easily become the most important and influential part of my week. She has become a much-needed support and voice of wisdom as I struggle to balance work and small kids. I've been amazed at how perfectly I can feel each muscle after our sessions, and I'm more flexible and significantly stronger. There's an energy and serenity in her private studio that makes it a safe place to go through the ups and downs involved with setting and achieving new goals. Pascale is so easy to talk to and incredibly knowledgeable about fitness, and never judgmental. She's actually one of the most genuine people I've ever met! Of all the various things I've invested either time or money into as a way to be healthier or find more balance in life, I can easily say these sessions are by far the most impactful and rewarding... it's been an invaluable experience.
