Pam’s health and fitness career started in 1997 when she began teaching group exercise classes in her hometown of San Francisco. As her mother began to suffer from numerous chronic health conditions, Pam became compelled to help people lead healthier lives. She obtained her B.S. in Health Science/Public Health and worked as a Wellness Coach/Health Educator in a corporate setting for more than a decade. She also became an ACE certified personal trainer, a Madd Dog spinning Instructor and a novice triathlete, competing in Ironman West Australia in 2010.
She obtained her M.S. in Kinesiology in 2013 and completed a contemporary Pilates certification through STOTT, focusing on chronic pain prevention, biomechanics, posture and alignment, rehabilitation, injuries and special populations. Pam’s objective with her clients is to assess their health goals and physical limitations and develop a Pilates program that will help them progress so they can move through life with ease and free of pain. Pam’s philosophy is that life is too short; and we have to laugh, move, rest, relax and nourish ourselves so that we can spend more time focusing on what makes us happy and less time living with stress, pain, illness and disease.
Pam is always working to stay current and up-to-date with the latest exercise science research and is currently working on a fascial movement specialist certification through STOTT. Pam believes exercise should not be punishment, but instead be a tool to help you feel better physically and mentally.
