    Patti has proven to be more than a fitness trainer, she truly is a life coach. I started working with her nearly two years ago with a set of unusual goals--a program that would help me lose a few pounds before my daughter's upcoming wedding while also improving my fitness and stamina for competitive horseback riding. Well, she checked both those boxes and more. So this year we set new goals (while still remembering the original ones), and I completed my first triathlon. Okay, so it was a mini-sprint, but it was a start! The really neat thing is, Patti made me feel like my mini-sprint--as well as all of my horse shows--was as important as a full Ironman. Her caring nature and attention to detail really set her apart. I can't wait to see where this partnership goes next.

    Patti has helped me work through some very significant physical challenges! With her guidance and patience I have landed on the podium more times than I ever imagined for the aqua bike (run, swim). I am dealing with some unique health issues and a crazy work schedule. Patti creates a training program very specific to my strengths and weaknesses. She gives excellent advice and feedback. Under her guidance I have dared to challenge myself in ways I never imagined. She has helped research the best nutrition and treatment options for me while being incredibly supportive. Her training is VERY individualized and creative. I am grateful for her every day!

    I began working with Patti just over a year ago. My husband and I became addicted to triathlon and after a couple of years, I wanted someone to work with me to help me improve. Patti asked my goals and then began helping me to achieve them. I love having a planned workout for each day and Patti provides one. She considers not only my capabilities but also considers my work schedule as well as any other factor that can affect a training plan. She has taught me better nutrition in my daily life as well as nutrition I need to get through a race. I love that she gives me straight answers to my many questions and provides positive feedback at all times. I have become so much stronger working with Patti and have realized the fitness goals I was hoping to achieve. I know that if I follow the plan Patti gives me I will be ready on race day.

    I had the good fortune to begin working with Patti three years ago, seasonally. I am a 68-year-old woman, generally strong but with chronic back and joint issues. For me, Patti's greatest asset is her acute observation of body mechanics. I've learned to listen to my body and pay more attention to the proper execution of exercises, and to posture. Patti doesn't go too easy on me, and a "good job" from her is high praise - and very rewarding. I hope to work with her every winter, if possible.

    I have been working with Patti for 7 months to help recop from a broken foot and torn ligiments. My goal was to get back on the tennis court ! All of my sessions were planned with my recovery in mind, healing of my injuries and continuing to build my streangth. There were times I was down and Patti's sessons helped give me hope that we were on the right path to getting better and stronger. 8 months after a nightmare of healing and setbacks, with Pattis help I am back on the tennis court , stronger than ever. Thank you Patti, for your special attention, your keen knowledge of what I was facing, and your complete professionalism.
