Personal Interests:
When it’s warm out he loves being on the golf course, fishing, hiking, or relaxing with friends at the beach. During the colder months Pat enjoys cooking new dishes for friends and family.

Training Philosophy:
Continuing education and staying current with evidence-based approaches, supported by peer-reviewed scientific research, is imperative. Pat is not the crazy drill sergeant type of trainer; he focuses on finding the best way to motivate each one of his clients.  He has discovered that everyone is motivated and coached a little differently.  Check out Coach John Wooden’s “Pyramid of Success.”  Many of the things he preaches with come from this model.
