Pam is an energetic spirited Leader by day to a team of 17 employees, fitness freak by night.
The best word to fuel Pam’s drive is “NO”. You say she can’t; watch her.
Pam moved from Saskatchewan in the late 80’s so running around in the frigid weather kept the metabolism high and she found she was always very active. As far back as Pam can remember, her mother enrolled her in gymnastics, dance, baton twirling, and ballet. The costumes, the hair curlers, the horror of the old photos. Back then with all of the activities, she was a part of, her metabolism was very effective! But, by the time she hit 40, Pam knew she needed to kick start it again. “WHOA MAMA where did that 10 pounds come from overnight?”
Pam knew it was time to take some powerful steps towards owning her health.
Fast forward to now: Pam is an accomplished and accredited instructor for LesMills RPM, Body Pump and Body Jam, MOC Barre Training and also spends time volunteering at AARCS as a dog caregiver and working on a 200-hour program through YogaFit/Yoga Alliance. When she’s not at the gym or the shelter, you’ll find Pam on her Harley. And yes, her clothing has bling on it!
Instructing is a very learned behavior; today Pam still gets butterflies before teaching a class.
Come and catch the butterflies with her at Oranj!
