Words from her clients:
"As a pastry chef who enjoys her own work a little too much, I was downright squishy, but after two months working with Patricia, I'm stronger than I thought possible. A decades-old injury had held me back, but Patricia found a way to help me overcome it. She's knowledgeable, professional, and super-motivating!" – Allison R.,
I joined the Women's Fit Club a few months after having my second son - it was my "me time" but also a way to get back in shape. Patricia uses a great balance of push and comradery to make you test yourself and push harder. There are times I don't think I can do a certain move/exercise, but she walks you through it and encourages you to just try. I have learned so many different techniques, and love that she keeps the workouts different every time. She will always keep you motivated through positive words but pushes you to really dig deep and train hard. In the end I always do way more then I think I can or could. - Tricia M. 33
When I worked with Patricia, she had me the strongest I have ever been. We trained 3 times a week, it improved every aspect of my life, especially my marathon training. My favorite part is when my 12-year-old son commented “my Dad is ripped!” Rudy B. 50
