    I began working with Patti just over a year ago. My husband and I became addicted to triathlon and after a couple of years, I wanted someone to work with me to help me improve. Patti asked my goals and then began helping me to achieve them. I love having a planned workout for each day and Patti provides one. She considers not only my capabilities but also considers my work schedule as well as any other factor that can affect a training plan. She has taught me better nutrition in my daily life as well as nutrition I need to get through a race. I love that she gives me straight answers to my many questions and provides positive feedback at all times. I have become so much stronger working with Patti and have realized the fitness goals I was hoping to achieve. I know that if I follow the plan Patti gives me I will be ready on race day.

    I had the good fortune to begin working with Patti three years ago, seasonally. I am a 68-year-old woman, generally strong but with chronic back and joint issues. For me, Patti's greatest asset is her acute observation of body mechanics. I've learned to listen to my body and pay more attention to the proper execution of exercises, and to posture. Patti doesn't go too easy on me, and a "good job" from her is high praise - and very rewarding. I hope to work with her every winter, if possible.

    I have been working with Patti for 7 months to help recop from a broken foot and torn ligiments. My goal was to get back on the tennis court ! All of my sessions were planned with my recovery in mind, healing of my injuries and continuing to build my streangth. There were times I was down and Patti's sessons helped give me hope that we were on the right path to getting better and stronger. 8 months after a nightmare of healing and setbacks, with Pattis help I am back on the tennis court , stronger than ever. Thank you Patti, for your special attention, your keen knowledge of what I was facing, and your complete professionalism.

    I have been working with Patti for over 4 years. What I like about working with her is that she strives to educate as well as improve overall fitness. Patti keeps our workouts challenging, interesting and always fun. She is adept at tailoring our workouts to focus on the latest sport I am trying and has really helped increase my range of motion in a painful hip. She is tough, inspiring and truly cares for her clients. I consider myself very fortunate to be one of her clients as well as a friend.

    Patty is the most observant and insightful trainer I have ever worked with. She has a keen eye for making minor adjustments in technique that significantly improve body mechanics, results and exercise tolerance. She is outstanding at working around injuries. In addition, she is a great motivator and fun to work with.
