Introducing Pamela Smith, Fitness Director

We are excited to welcome Pamela Smith as the new Fitness Director at Sun City Shadow Hills.

Four years ago, Pamela came to the Coachella Valley from the LA/Ventura Counties as a full-time RV’er and loved it so much, she purchased a home and made the desert her new residence.

With a professional background in the fitness industry since 1998, her certifications have included NASM Certified Personal Trainer, SPIN Instructor (Johnny G), Certified Pilates Instructor (Mat and Apparatus) through Physical Mind Institute, Wellness Coach and Private Gym Owner. Pam is currently working towards her National Board Certification as a Wellness Coach (complete by September 2021) and loves helping people discover and design a Wellness Vision for their lives. She developed a 12-week wellness program that was accepted by Pepperdine University for staff and faculty back in 2006.

Some fun things Pam has done during her fitness career is ghost-write two Fitness Books and host a weekday talk radio show for women. During her gym ownership, in Ventura County she was awarded Best Pilates Studio, one of the best gyms, best personal trainer, and best newspaper columnist (Fitness Column).

Aside from pursuing a healthy lifestyle, Pam is an animal lover (has three rescue dogs), loves to write and is working on a book or two. She also enjoys cooking and entertaining.

Favorite phrase: “Keep Moving!”
