I am not one to use superlatives but training with Pam has been
transformational to my body and spirit. I have trained with Pam for 8 months and have lost 22 lbs., gone from a size 10 to a size 4 and have most
importantly become better able to and more motivated to embrace the active lifestyle I have always wanted. I feel that Pam's routines are very well
thought out, non-trendy, and specific to me. Pam's training plan includes
advice on nutrition that maximizes the benefit of our work outs. An
accomplished athlete herself, I never feel that she views her work with me as
less satisfying than coaching an experienced athlete. Always encouraging and results oriented, Pam offers the total training package!

I signed up for your running class because "I disliked running and I wished to learn to like running". With your analysis and correction of my running style I can now say that I really enjoy running.
Thank you for being a great coach

I’ve known Pam for about 10 years; she has been training me consistently for the past 4 years (both here and in Honolulu). I do not have an easy body to work with (rotator cuff problems, scoliosis, hip, knee and I walk like a duck) so she designs my programs with corrective exercises specific to my needs. In the middle of teaching me a new exercise she is able to assess if I am able to physically do the exercise and if I am not she is able to modify the desired movement right then and there to better meet my needs. When she first explains / demonstrates a new exercise I think to myself she has got to be kidding, there is no way I can do that; but I do. Not as well as she does but I do it and work at it to make it better. As a trainer, Pam is focused and eminently knowledgeable about her subject matter.
I saw Pam to improve the strength and range of motion of my shoulders after a rotator cuff injury. She developed an awesome shoulder program, gradually adding more challenging stretches and exercises along the way. Pam did a great job focusing on my form and body mechanics. It helped me be even more cognizant about my form when I did the program on my own. It was an absolute pleasure working with her!
