Certified Personal Trainer

My family and I moved to Bradenton, FL in 1996 from Puerto Rico. Growing up I was very insecure and self-conscious of my body and hid behind baggy clothes. As I grew older, I discovered that in order for me to love anyone else I needed to love myself first and that looking healthy on the outside is just as important as being healthy mentally.

I began to learn the simple Do’s & Don’ts for healthy diet. It wasn’t until sometime later that I finally incorporated workouts into my new healthy lifestyle. I began to make daily and weekly goals to challenge myself. Fitness helped me find my true self, I began to understand my body and understand that no one is perfect and that it is okay to have flaws and embrace every single one of them.

Throughout my healthy fit lifestyle I have discovered self love, self motivation and discipline and now I want to share that with others! I wanted to help others find their true self and show them that living a healthy fit life style is not a punishment but a blessing!

I’m excited to share this journey with you!

Certified Personal Trainer

Hey there! I'm Pamela. I was born in Ecuador. I lived in NY for the past 5 years and I recently relocated to Sarasota, Fl.

Since I can remember, My Mom and Dad were always involved in Marathons, Triathlons, etc. My Dad was a classic Van Damme and Arnold fan, lifting weights and all. My Mom was either swimming or running and eating clean (for the most part).  We enjoyed our occasional chocolate cake, sometimes more than occasional. So....yes, I was an active-healthy child, participating in sports in school. But I didn't grow up to be the perfect example of fitness or health. I spent my 20's in a love-hate-love relationship with  my body and with food as most women  were  programmed to do. It was in my 30's, depressed, overweight, and unhealthy, when I received my wake-up call. As painful as it was, it was the best thing that ever happened to me.

I was given the opportunity to go back to love myself no matter what, to be able to look in the mirror and say: " Pamelita, you are enough, I love you. I will nurture and take care of you " - And that's how my journey in wellness began. I made peace with my relationship with food and I started working out with a dear friend of mine. Between tears and pushups, I realized how amazing it was to have someone who guided, pushed, and challenged me! I started to feel great, not to mention that looking good and strong was an amazing side effect!

I want to pay it forward. What my friend did for me, I want to do it for you! Wherever you are in your journey, let me walk with you...


Let's do it together!
