Fit Your Life Fits Your Schedule

By Jake Levin

Not all information is good information when it comes to weight loss and physical fitness.

Pamela Carthew, a certified personal trainer and nutrition coach, acknowledged the information overload when it comes to weight loss. Every individual is different, and one thing she does not subscribe to is the "one size fits all" approach when it comes to which method is the best. Carthew owns and operates Fit Your Life in Warwick, R.I., where she lends her keen eye to seeing where her clients' strengths and weaknesses lie.

"Exercise and nutrition go hand in hand and in fact, nutrition probably plays a bigger role," Carthew said. "To optimize the benefits of exercise, it just makes sense to eat and nourish your body."

Carthew's job as a coach is to view her clients' habits from an outsider's perspective. She can identify their strengths and weaknesses, help her clients acknowledge them, and help her clients overcome them.

Once this is achieved, Carthew can guide her clients towards a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.

"Fueling your body correctly at the rights times, and giving it the best possible nutrients is going to improve your health first, and then the weight loss will come naturally," Carthew said. "My goal is to educate my clients to make better choices with their nutrition, and new healthy sustainable habits that will last a life time."

Carthew has always had a passion for health and fitness, something she parlayed into a career for herself after leaving the corporate world. She became a certified personal trainer, but after growing frustrated by not being able to answer all of her clients' questions, pursued even more certifications.

Today, Carthew is Correct Exercise certified, as well as Nutrition and Exercise and Nutritional Coaching. Gaining the Nutritional Coaching certification was the most challenging, but also the most satisfying, she said.

"I love to help people sort through the chaos and help them focus on their individual needs," Carthew said. "Each person's situation and is totally unique, as is the way their body functions."
