“I don’t have to hate a person to fight or want to fight them. To me it’s just a test of my skills against their skills and I will always respect the person willing to give me the opportunity to test my skills against them.”

5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT PAM SORENSON
WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY OF TRAINING LIKE?
I train 6-7 days per week. Normally I start out with a short jog in the morning, or strength and conditioning followed by an hour of BJJ and an hour of pads later in the morning. Then I usually get a 60-90 minute cardio workout in in the afternoon that might include sprints, stairs, rowing and/or running. Then in the evening I do 2-3 hours of BJJ and kickboxing.
WHAT GOT YOU INTO MARTIAL ARTS?
In my mid-20’s I lost my best friend and went through a bout of depression where I’d go to my 9-5 job that I didn’t really like, then go sit at home to feel sorry for myself. Before that I had been an athlete my whole like, but during this time I really let myself go. I got up to around 210 pounds and just felt and looked unhealthy. One day I just kinda got tired of being so overweight and unhealthy, so in an effort to find a fun new way to get in shape, I decided to sign up for my very first kickboxing class. I instantly fell in love with it and started training BJJ shortly after and the rest is history!
WHAT PROFESSION OTHER THAN YOUR OWN WOULD YOU LIKE TO ATTEMPT AND WHY?
I don’t know if it’s actually a thing, but I’d love to be a professional candy taste-tester!! Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE gummy bears, Sour Patch watermelons and pretty much anything else with sugar in it!.
DO YOU HAVE ANY HIDDEN TALENTS?
I actually used to be really big into cross country skiing. I’d race almost every weekend in high school and in my early 20’s. I don’t know why I stopped doing it, I really loved it and was pretty good at it. I have since turned into a bit of a freeze baby, but maybe I’ll take it up again one of these days!
IF YOU COULD BE ANY FICTIONAL CHARACTER, WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY?
I think I would want to be Thor, simply because his weapon of choice is a giant, bad ass hammer.
