altPat Karrigan

ACE certified
Personal Trainer
AFAA certified Group Fitness Instructor

Pat has lived in Carrboro for 7 years, where her children have enjoyed the convenient walk from their home to Chapel Hill Tennis Club. Pat has recently combined her background in teaching with her passion for exercise, to focus her energy on helping others achieve their fitness goals. She is certified through the American Council on Exercise.

Pat has always led an active lifestyle, but the birth of her third son precipitated a new dimension in her activity level, and a running career emerged! The initial days of “sticking to it” led to training for and competing in numerous races of various distances, including 4 marathons: Camp Lejeune, Grandma’s, Chicago, and Kiawah Island. Her finishing times in 3 of these qualified her to run in the Boston Marathon. Aside from the many health benefits she has received from running, Pat appreciates the calmness and clarity she gains through running. She considers the friends she has met along the way to be the greatest gift of all.

In an effort to create balance in her own exercise regime, Pat diversifies her program to include many forms of training. She continues to challenge herself in new areas and participated in her first triathlon in Wilmington, NC last September.

Pat would like the opportunity to share her enthusiasm for fitness with you, she will keep you motivated, improve your technical skills, ensure every workout counts, introduce new equipment, teach you a new exercise, and guide you through a program tailored to meet your fitness goals and helps you build a foundation for a more active and healthy lifestyle.
