About Carolyn

My work means more to me than just being a trainer; I have an intrinsic love for helping people realize their full potential when it comes to their overall sense of well-being. My work is my passion in life and I truly enjoy what I do.

I have been promoting fitness and educating clients about the benefits of activity and a healthy lifestyle since 1992. I make fitness fun so it becomes woven into your life naturally.

I earned a BS Degree in Physical Education with a minor in Nutrition from San Jose State University in 1992. Since then I have kept up with the advances and changes to the industry of Personal Training by furthering my education in Functional Development, Neuromuscular Re-education and Yoga. Over the years I’ve attended numerous conferences and seminars on how to best teach movement to help individuals with their specific fitness needs.
