I love helping people feel better and look better! Maintaining a healthy diet for myself and my family has always been important to me and I enjoy sharing what I have learned about simple, healthy food preparation. I didn't grow up as what I thought of as an "athlete", but running, walking, hiking and strength training became integral elements of my formula for staying fit and strong, and for relieving stress and maintaining a healthy weight. As I raised my children, my field of work was education, in various roles and settings. As they prepared to go out on their own, I changed gears and started to share what I truly loved -- how to take steps to live the best life you can.

In my ten years of personal training, I have worked with men and women of all ages and fitness levels. I have helped clients lose weight, improve balance, and gain strength and flexibility. I've worked with patients recovering from stroke and cardiac events, living with diabetes, Parkinson's, brain injury and other limiting conditions. I've worked with women progressing through a pregnancy and getting back into pre-baby shape. With the addition of Wellness Coaching to my training and certifications, I am even better equipped to help clients envision their healthier, stronger future and begin working toward it.

My style as a trainer is highly personal. I want to know what your life is like and what challenges you face so we can work together to move you toward your goals! Call me or email so we can talk about it!

    Paula not only helped me achieve weight loss, she taught me how to run and be healthy. She not only was a trainer, but became a wonderful friend and support through my life. Best trainer EVER!
