Patty Durell is an exercise and self care coach who is extremely passionate about empowering and challenging people to be their best. She is also the Founder and CEO of Rock Solid Fitness, a thriving personal training studio in Dunedin Florida. 

Through her younger years she battled depression, addiction, and being overweight.  In her mid-twenties she learned that if she was willing to fail but didn’t give up, she was capable of accomplishing things that seemed impossible.  She learned this through a strength training program called High Intensity Training (HIT).  Over the past 25 years, Patty has coached thousands of people to improve the quality of their lives through this same program.

Patty first started as a Physical Therapist Assistant helping people overcome life changing orthopedic and neurological events.  She currently educates and inspires her team, her community and audiences throughout the country on topics of leadership, time efficient and safe exercise programs as well as how to be in optimal health through self care.

Having supervised over 10,000 one-on-one personal training sessions with individuals from ages 13-90, I can say with confidence that everyone has something positive to gain from our unique, evidence-based approach to exercise at EverStrongSF.

Through my career in the health and wellness industry, I’ve had the opportunity to help guide people to accomplish meaningful results effectively, without hurting them and without wasting their time doing dangerous or inefficient movements.  I firmly believe exercise should enhance one’s life rather than consume it and should never under any circumstances cause injury.  That’s why my business partner Abe and I and all of our instructors adhere to the principles of high-intensity training, supervising brief and intense workouts, on a one-on-one basis, in our fitness laboratory, free of distractions.
