Pamela DeSalvo

I'm Pamela DeSalvo - Entrepreneur, wife, mom and health and wellness coach with a type "A" personality.

​I get it.  Getting to and maintaining our health is hard. As a busy professional working in international business I need easy healthy recipes and real world strategies that work. I have found some simple solutions that I have implemented in my life and I know you can do it too. 

​I have a full time career, an awesome 10 year old son and a successful busy husband that I am still deeply in love with after 15 years. In spite of the crazy schedule, I still find time to share my passion with the world. 

This is me in 2006. Yes, I just had my son three months prior and was carrying a bit of extra leftover "pregnancy weight". Who was I trying to kid, I made poor lifestyle choices and I ended up tired, achy, bloated and overweight! I thought it was "normal" and just a part of the "aging process".

I avoided cameras, and felt disgusting. I really wasn't happy in my skin. I wanted and needed to be a good example for my son. I wanted to look good but most importantly I wanted to be healthy and happy again. I ​became determined. I studied, and earned five certificates in the areas of nutrition, fitness and yoga from 3 different world recognized institutions.

I worked hard and implemented scientifically proven techniques into my daily life. It took time....it took patience....it took making a conscious decisions every moment of every day. ​

Today not only am I 32 pounds lighter but I am now the healthiest and happiest I have ever been in my entire life

I help people to lose weight, gain energy, and improve athletic performance.

"I reached out to Pamela a couple of months ago when I decided that I wanted to change the way I looked and felt. I was tired when I woke up, wasn't focused during the day and found myself eating for necessity rather than enjoyment.

I signed up for Pamela's program.  As a result, I lost weight, have more energy, manage my stress better and make educated, healthy and enjoyable food and meal decisions. Pamela's coaching sessions helped keep me on track and actually enjoy the process and my resulting transformation. The programs are creative and professional and includes everything you need to lose weight and become the healthiest you can be.​

I’d highly recommend any of her programs to reach your health goals."​

​"Pamela is a wonderful health coach. She really takes the time to get to know you as an individual, forming a custom plan for you. She understood my schedule and my constraints and worked with me to come up with what would help me.

She suggested amazing new foods that I've never had before like Chia seeds and even got me doing yoga, which helped with my back pain.

I recommend her for anyone looking to improve their health and overall well-being."

I signed up for Pamela's program and I couldn't be happier. I have lost weight, have more energy, manage my stress better and make educated, healthy and enjoyable food and meal decisions.
