Tricia Buffardi

A mother of two boys, Tricia got the exercise bug shortly after her youngest was born. In 2007 wanting to mix up her exercise a little bit, Tricia starting running. Two months later she trained for her first half marathon and in October of 2007 completed the Hartford Half Marathon. That summer in June 2008 Tricia joined the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Team in Training program and completed her 1st full Marathon in San Francisco. The feeling of running a full marathon and doing it for such an amazing cause showed Tricia that ANYONE can do it! In the fall of 2008, she became a mentor for Team in Training and now helps her mentees with their fundraising goals for Team in Training events.

To date, she has ran over a dozen half marathons and will be training for her 4th full marathon this summer in 2011.

Tricia started at Punch Gym in 9/10. Wanting a smaller and intimate training surrounding, she fit right in. A running injury to her ankle over the summer, sidelined her running and exercise routine, but a couple of weeks at Punch and she was back in shape and ready to hit the pavement.

Tricia joined the Punch Team in April of 2011.

"Punch gives me the ultimate workout every time I step foot in those doors. You always feel challenged, empowered and energized".

"I love teaching at Punch too! It's all about pushing yourself and NEVER GIVING UP! Anyone can work out, but it's YOUR workout - so work out LOUD!
