DISCIPLINE-CERTIFIED trainers COACHING YOU TO SUCCESS!
owner and ACSM Certified personal trainer, rRCA certified running coach, spinning® certified instructor and B.S.
Raised in a family with a father who was a hard-core marathoner and relatives who owned an aerobics company-as well as having family members who were seriously unhealthy and overweight-set the stage for Pamela’s dichotomous relationship with health, wellness and fitness. “Since I was very young, there was always a focus on weight and exercise, but not always in a positive way,” explained Pamela. “It was a constant stressor in my family and in my life, and the discussion always came from a place of judgment.” So when Pamela had the opportunity to open a fitness studio in 2014, she was sure it would be a place of acceptance, encouragement and motivation.
Pamela’s background includes a variety of sports; softball, volleyball, track, cross-country, endurance distances, cycling and sprint triathlons. She has organized running events in the Albuquerque community, worked as Campaign Manager for the Team in Training (TNT) cycle and triathlon programs, and brought the Jeff Galloway Run-Walk-Run Training Program to Albuquerque as his Program Director. With all this experience, Pamela felt well-prepared for an exciting business venture of owning and operating a boutique-style fitness studio in the heart of Albuquerque’s Sawmill District.
If she’s not teaching a class, leading her endurance program, or working one-on-one with clients, she’s busy with the tasks of operating a business and being a single-mom. Carving out time to run and ride regularly and participating in events year-round, she also enjoys camping, hiking, kayaking, and getting outdoors whenever possible with her two kids.
NASM Certified personal trainer
Michael has been physically active since an early age. Drawn to running after discovering that it not only kept him in shape, but it helped him manage the stress of college and part-time jobs. After some time pursuing competitive diving, Michael went on to major in dance at the University of New Mexico. The combination of fitness training and dance solidified his appreciation for total body fitness, including balance, speed, strength, endurance and flexibility.
Although Michael enjoyed dance, ballet and jazz, he chose to take a different path after college and has built a career in architecture for the past 30 years. While building a career and raising a family he continued to run, bike and do anything physical to keep the stress at bay and keep his body feeling good. In early 2015, Michael made the decision to focus his time and energy in a field that brought him personal satisfaction and joy, and obtained his NASM personal trainer certification and Spinning® certification.
When it comes to health and wellness, Michael’s biggest pleasure is watching his clients grow in their strength, ability, confidence, and most importantly, the enjoyment they experience with exercise.
