    I’ve been working for a year and she made me a stronger, healthier version of myself. Everyday we’re set to meet, she shows up with a ton of energy and ready to work. She’s always in a great mood and always has a detailed plan for the session. She is incredibly insightful with her knowledge of how the body works, what muscles to work and when and how to reach a designated goal. I ran a half marathon in October 2016 and Carmen came to the finish line to cheer me on and congratulate me which meant the world. I would strongly encourage anyone who’s trying to get into shape, has a specific goal or just wants a fun partner to work out with, to work with Carmen.

    SHE IS THE ONE! I trained with Carmen for months. If you are looking to make true changes and achieve concrete goals in partnership with a trainer, she MUST be your choice. After only a short time training with Carmen, I was finishing 5ks in my time target. Carmen was literally with me every step of the way. Her energy is wonderful. She will lift you and focus you.

  • Anna Hoptry

    Carmen is the best! Her assessment is very thorough and she created an 8 week program that was perfect for me at my “beginner” level. I highly recommend her!

  • Selena Good

    Carmen is a fantastic trainer, she gave me a thorough assessment and helped me set attainable goals. She’s upbeat,motivating, and pushes me to keep going. I look forward to the training because she makes it fun.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My recent project was to get my client to recover from a half marathon faster than she has done before on her own. She trained 3 months with me for the race and recovered in four days, but felt great right after her race. She felt like she could go on a easy run literally a day or two later. I advised her not too. It was a pivotal moment in her athleticism. Before me it took her 3-4 weeks to recover.
