On July 2nd, in response to Pam asking me what my training goal was, I sent her this photo with a note saying I had booked a trip to Skellige Michael for September 14th 2018 and my goal was to be able to get to the top. Pam developed for me a comprehensive and effective workout plan with exercises that really work well and avoid pain. Her knowledge of alternative strategies for accomplishing specific goals is beyond impressive. I marvel at the range of options she has explored to find the exercises that work best for me. As a result, I’ve benefitted by gaining significantly increased mobility and balance as well as strength – the outcome has really been well beyond my expectations. Here I am, healthier and 618 steps higher, coming down from the top of this beautiful island.

I worked with several personal trainers before meeting Pam, but no one ever came close to comparing with her. Pam is extremely knowledgeable  hard working and sensitive. She's always able to work around my aches and pains, designing and implementing a workout plan for me that pushes me to reach my goals. In my business, it's important that I stay fit. Working out from my home using Skype fits in with my crazy schedule, and Pam has been great at using the limited workout tools at my disposal to get in a good workout every time. She's great at mixing things up so I never get bored too. I know that I owe my reaching the 19,341' summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro to my biweekly workouts with her for the preceding months before I left for the climb.

Pam Changed my life! It was a blessing that a colleague of Pam's recommended that she would be the best personal trainer to achieve my health goals. Pam is incredibly intuitive when her clients health, safety and welfare are her concern. She has made me love working out and made it ok to go at my own pace. Her constant reassurance and professionalism and enthusiasm is only second to her incredible talent and expertise. Anyone who is fortunate to be able to work closely with her will feel better immediately. Through the short 18 months that Pam helped me become even more comfortable in my skin I am grateful that we have also become lifelong friends.

Pam provided me with personal training through the YMCA in Rochester, NY. Pam was extremely knowledgeable, and really fun to work with. She created customized workout plans for me and walked me through them really focusing on form and safety. I have been working out for years and have worked with other trainers previously and I came away from my sessions with Pam feeling like I had learned something new and having had a unique and fun experience. I would definitely work with Pam again!

I have had several personal trainers throughout the years but once I found Pam that was it. She is supportive, consistent and by far the most knowledgeable personal trainer I have ever had and I have gotten the best results working with her.

Pam is an incredible personal trainer-- perhaps the best there is. I have mild cerebral palsy, and working with her for a year left me stronger and more confident than I had ever been. Her approach was creative, and her manner, always consistent and kind. She repeatedly went above and beyond, and now, almost 4 full years after working with her, the impact is lasting. She is knowledgeable, focused, and dedicated-- and that dedication is infectious. I couldn't recommend a better personal trainer, and I have worked with several over the years. Pam is exceptional, and a master at her craft.

Regional Sales Manager - Windstream Communications - ISG Division

I hired Pam to help me "get into shape" in 2000. I had never done any weight training. Pam was excellent - she focused on safety, taught me the right techniques to avoid injury and knew when to push and when to back down. I moved away from the area in 2008 and since have had other personal trainers locally - NONE of the have matched up to my experience with Pam. I would highly suggest Pam.

“I worked with Pam in developing an education program directed at the kidney transplant population. Specifically, Pam provided the group with an amazing motivational example (herself) as well as providing realistic goals and expectations for the group. The majority of the participants were people listed for a kidney transplant. Pam provided the group with a workout and exercise information that was mindful of their individual needs as people with kidney failure. Pam is a wonderful, endearing, motivating and shining example of how one can transform their lives in the midst of overwhelming challenges. Her willingness and ability to share with others her knowledge and enthusiasm of just what it takes to make that happen sets her apart.” March 28, 2013

Pam was able to put together an individual workout program for me that not only strengthened the weakness from a broken leg, but helped me fight multiple sclerosis as well. Working with Pam has been truly life changing for me.
