“Patricia’s gentle persistence and creative approaches kept me going when I was tempted to give up.”

Patricia with one of her coaching clients.

I had heard about Patricia from a mutual friend. When I looked at her blog, I was quite taken with the photograph of Patricia with her cat on a leash. I’m not a cat person (I’m actually quite allergic), but something about that image spoke to me. I have hired personal trainers in the past and been successful only to have all the weight (plus some!) come back. Here was someone who had lost 43 lbs. and kept it off for years. My previous personal trainers had been thin, fit women all their lives. 
I’ve been working with Patricia for five months now and have lost twenty pounds and six inches. She is amazing. She listens to you and has concrete suggestions that work. I love her exercise program as well. I have been thinking about adding weight-bearing exercise for years, but never doing anything about it. Now, I’m exercising with weights three times a week, which is especially important as we get older.  Finally, I have reduced my A1C from 6.2 to 5.9, from diabetic to pre-diabetic. I’m looking forward to reducing it even further. Patricia rocks.

I cannot recommend Patricia’s services highly enough.  I wasn’t even sure I could be a client of hers due to my having to make my way through health problems and severe exercise limitations.  But she demonstrated how ingenious and resourceful she could be by creating customized recorded daily meditations for focusing on my goals and by listening to my struggles to help me find my way through them.  Customized exercising, supportive and positive coaching, and flexibility with the frequency of contacts has helped me attain my preliminary goal of 10% weight loss.  I am confident with my ability to continue until the end since she has helped me learn how to stay on track no matter what comes my way.  I’m so shocked that we have found a way to lose weight and not feel restricted and hungry!  I will always be grateful for all Patricia’s help!

“I greatly benefited from Patricia’s coaching during a very hectic time in my life. Weekly check-ins with her really kept me on track so my health stayed vibrant and I was able to keep up with all the overtime I was working. You will not find someone more patient and persistent in helping you find health solutions. She really takes the time to listen and ‘see’ you. Everything is customized to your unique needs and goals. Thank you, Patricia, for being a positive force and inspiration!”

Testimonials from the Zoom exercise group:

I have gotten stronger, more motivated, more energetic and more positive, mood-wise, since doing Patricia’s exercise routines three times a week. Patricia’s workout is amazing. She is easy to follow, keeps up the pace and delivers results.

What a great program that makes a variety of exercises fun. It’s so convenient to be able to do this in my own home, and if I feel self-conscious about doing moves in front of other people (people who are not watching me, of course, but watching Patricia!), I can just turn off my video. What has surprised me the most is how much resistance training we do in addition to aerobics; not to mention balance, strength, flexibility and stretching. It really covers it all and the music is great, too! “

I love that Patricia is able to run a class across multiple time zones, and varying exercise needs, yet each class feels tailored to my needs. I can tell I’m gaining arm and core strength, and also feel a lot less achy (especially in my back and problematic left heel). The workouts have been especially beneficial to my upper body strength. I can already feel the improvement after approximately eight weeks of workouts. I’m also experiencing far less shortness of breath while climbing stairs.

I came to the workout sessions after years out of the gym. Well, slowly but surely the routines brought me back to “life” and wellbeing. I started slow but little by little I could catch up with the class in terms of stamina and energy as well as ease of movement. BEST gift I have given to myself in a LONGGG TIME!

All my life I didn’t think I could learn how to swim, but with Patricia’s help I did it!” –

“During my transition from college to my first day job, Patricia helped me plan a variety of healthy meals, keep up with various types of exercises and fit mindfulness into my day. She is so kind and provided useful and specialized tips for my specific needs. I was able to seamlessly add healthy changes to my life that have become a permanent part of my lifestyle.

As a writer, after years of struggling alone to finish my manuscript, I hired Patricia as a coach for three months. Whenever I ran into the same old walls, she was ready and pulled me up and over them with a practical and insightful hand. I’m well-aware that without her gentle, honest, clear and motivating guidance, I would never have had the satisfaction of typing the words “The End”.

“Patricia is wonderful! She helped me tackle my cravings and plan nutritious meals around my busy schedule. After working with her one on one, I joined her for a workshop on the upper body. I learned new ways to stretch and strengthen my shoulders. If you are thinking about a change, reach out. It is worth it!”

Anonymous, age 38

I attended her nutritional seminar that was beyond amazing and extremely valuable. Patricia is professional to a T and possesses powerful knowledge that she so freely shares. I love eating healthy and believed I knew a lot about it, but to my surprise I came to find out that every second was a learning experience. Thank you so much!
