Hey there, I'm Pamela. An author, speaker, actress, and coach based in New York City.
It is my mission to discover what enables the human spirit to thrive and ensure that everyone has access to the information that will help them on their journey. My passion lies in researching, inventing, and sharing the toolbox we need to live up to our fullest potential. This often includes diving deeply into the science and principles of behavior change, testing out those theories in the world, and sharing strategies and mindset shifts that work (or what doesn’t). I’ll always keep it real.
In my work with clients, I help busy professionals achieve their fitness goals by blending fitness and psychology. Since becoming a certified personal trainer, I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people, training hundreds of clients since entering the fitness industry in 2013. My specializations and certifications include personal training, group fitness, corrective exercise, nutrition, pre- and post-natal, TRX suspension training, body composition change, strength training for runners, and women’s fitness.
I graduated with honors in psychology from the University of Florida. Assisting in research labs on campus motivated me to study the field of behavior change for a decade, both formally in classrooms and on my own, reading everything I could get my hands on and performing small experiments on myself (and on my friends when they are willing).
When not training and writing, I also dedicate my time to acting onstage or on-screen.
For fun, I enjoy exploring new cities, running to 90s jock jams, watching comedy, and playing with my dogs.
Now, let me know what I can do for you and your goals!
Working with Pamela has been a revelation in my physical life. I’m a musician in my mid-thirties who sort of ‘let it all go’ while living life on the road. Despite being a performer, I’ve always felt disconnected from my body, and body awareness in the gym is extremely difficult for me. I’m a challenging case, but Pamela’s gift for sharing her incredible knowledge, even with a total novice, changed the game for me. Working with Pamela for the past year has yielded an extraordinary leap forward in my ability to internalize my workouts, gain a real sense of belonging in my body, and learn to love being engaged in movement and physical health.
Working with Pam for the last two years has changed a lot for me because of her holistic view on health and fitness. Without pressure or judgment, Pam has guided me through multiple fitness goals and is always there to celebrate results and strategize during plateaus. She tailors fitness plans according to who you are and where you are in life—mind, body, and soul.
I’ve been training with Pam for three years, and her preparedness, knowledge, and professionalism have always impressed me. She effectively combines physical, nutritional, and mental aspects to create an individually tailored program. She helped me prepare for two separate, intense Grand Canyon back- packing trips by creating a program to focus on the exact strength, balance, and cardio I’d need for such a grueling adventure. Whether training for backpacking, marathons, or just general fitness, she listened to my goals, helped me find focus, and brought a bit of fun into being healthy.
