Pam Harrelson’s main certification for 20 years has been with American Council on Exercise. She has also been certified in the past by Cooper Institute as a Nutrition Coach, under the strict umbrella of Registered Dieticians. Her primary training for 8 years was under Neal Spruce, former owner of Apex and NASM.
In 23 years as a Personal Trainer, (a very diverse clientele), Pam has promoted moderation in a personal exercise regime – not throwing up, passing out or crying! Pam says, “We would all rather play than work; one is an obligation, the other is pure joy.” Her workouts remain very results-oriented with references she will give you from over the last 10 years.
Pam’s five grandchildren enjoy year round “Captain Pam’s” hobbies. Her bright yellow party barge is kept on a river slip at the Tchefuncte. They love paddling with her kayaks.
She holds you accountable but helps in those moments of perceived failure. “Starting over is always awesome,” she says! Accountability is her forte'.
Pam has maintained a large weight loss for 25 years. It was a very slow weight loss,which produced easier weight maintenance. She has helped many people suffering from obesity and has even helped people gain weight focusing on Lean Body Mass. She has been well trained over the years in various gyms in weight lifting.
“Lifetime weight maintenance begins with the mind, not with a diet.”
