Pam Rigden

Having witnessed the benefits of integrating NLP into her own work with clients, former personal trainer Pam Rigden developed an NLP Training course specifically for other fitness professionals so that ultimately, more clients could enjoy the same benefits. Three years on, NLP for Fitness Professionals, the first course of its type in the world, is now considered an essential qualification by leading fitness professionals. The training is endorsed by Skills Active, the government agency charged with accrediting courses, and Fitness Unlimited has established itself as the NLP training provider to the industry. <br><br>

Known for her innovative and unique approach, Pam is a much sought after speaker; she presents both nationally (Fitpro, Multitrax) and internationally (IDEA, Fitness Network Australia and Can Fit Pro) for the world’s leading fitness organizations. She is generally regarded as one of the world’s leading authorities on mind-body coaching. As such, Pam’s work with clients now takes place almost exclusively at her Greek Island base, Iraklia, where she runs Personal Development and Self Care Workshops, as well as offering One to One Coaching through her other business, Wellbeing Holidays. <br><br>

Pam holds the prerequisite NLP qualifications (Trainer, Master Practitioner and Coach) in addition to BSc (Hons) (Sports Sciences) and MA (Sociological Studies), the focus of which was women’s mental health issues. She worked in a variety of roles within the mental health sector before returning to work in the fitness industry in 1997 where she gained extensive experience working on GP Referral schemes. Pam is currently writing Being Slim: The Last Weight Loss Guide You’ll Ever Buy. <br><br>
