Patrick Temple

Certified Personal Fitness Trainer

  • NASM Certified Personal Trainer and RRCA Running Coach
  • 10 years of coaching experience
More About Patrick

I’ve been coaching people and helping them achieve their fitness goals for over 10 years, and my favorite thing is seeing someone reach a milestone they originally thought impossible. My approach is to discover what your goals are, and help you accomplish them through a thoughtful plan involving core strength, balance training, and muscular strength  – whether those goals are sports, walking, running, playing with kids/grandkids, or just opening pickle jars. I’ve lived most of my life in Sonoma County and I’m a fifth generation Santa Rosan with deep ties to the beautiful area we get to call home. I’m certified as an NASM Certified Personal Trainer, and an RRCA Run Coach, and I constantly study to expand my knowledge of health and wellness, and to keep up on the latest findings. I’m committed to helping you to the best version of yourself.
