About Pam Farrington


MY STORY

As a fitness instructor, I am looking to take my clients somewhere new, doing something fun, that leaves them feeling great!

Since graduating from the University of Florida in 1983, with a degree in Exercise Science, I have continued to further my education to bring new ideas to my clients, to help them stay active and enjoy the process. My newest method of training is GYROTONIC®. I have found it to be a great way to train, no matter what your level of fitness. It is an excellent way to stay fit and a great supplement to other forms of exercise. It is simply what the body needs and you cannot get this kind of movement in any other form of exercise. See my section on About GYROTONIC®  for more details.

If you are interested in experiencing the GYROTONIC® method, I would love to introduce you to it.
