Pam Paley - Master Instructor
A 20 year fitness veteran, Pam grew up in Connecticut where she earned a BS from Southern CT State University, but lived in New Jersey much of her life. Most recently she relocated to Arizona where she continues to work in the fitness and wellness industry. She is currently working on a Masters in Healthcare Management.
Pam's passion for Pilates started shortly after being diagnosed with Cancer, and due to the many surgeries from the cancer, she lost much of her range of motion. She could not continue to run marathons like she used to so she started taking Pilates classes. Through Pilates she regained much of the lost mobility from her cancer treatments. She was so impressed with Pilates that she went on to study it in depth. She became certified through Powerhouse Pilates, Physical Mind, and most recently Fletcher Pilates School of Study. Pam has completed all aspects of training through Pilates Institute of America (PIA) directly under the tutelege of owner and director Frankie Puglisi.
Prior to entering the fitness field, Pam was a nuclear medicine & ultrasound technician and later an athletic trainer. She has also been a teacher of science, health and physical education for college and high school students and maintains her teachers certificate for teaching science grades 6-12, health grades 6-12 and physical education grades K-12. For several years Pam directed the health and wellness center at a 100,000 sq ft hospital where she also directed the Pilates studio.
Pam holds numerous certifications including AFAA, Spinning, Kickboxing, Rebounding, Stability Ball and numerous Les Mills (BTS) certifications
