    I went to Carrie last year to get more motivation and stay on track with my weight training. She created several different workouts for me to use when I work out alone as well as introducing new exercises and workout tools whenever we workout together. She always addresses the goals I have, whether it be a particular problem area or an ache/pain I have. Since I have been working with her, I have noticed a dramatic difference in my strength; notably, I have not needed to see my chiropractor as much due to her targeting areas that used to cause me discomfort. I am never bored during our workouts because of Carrie's vivacious personality and dynamic workouts. She is also extremely reliable and punctual.

    Carrie has been my personal trainer for more than 10 years, coming to my home weekly. She does a wonderful job of mixing up the training elements - cardio, strength, etc. - at each session. She challenges me to do better, yet is caring about any aches and pains I may have and immediately helps find solutions for those. Often she has provided articles and additional information regarding my particular challenges or body issues, showing that she has taken time away from each session to do additional research - I really appreciate that! Her positive attitude and enthusiasm are just the tonic I need to get going at our early morning sessions. I highly recommend Carrie!

    Carrie has been my mother's personal trainer since mom had total knee joint replacement surgery last summer. Mom is 82 years old, and Carrie has inspired and cared for her in regaining strength post-surgery, as well as cardio fitness exercise on the stationary bike, and yoga for more steady balance and relaxation. Carrie has made a real difference for my mother in her health, independence, and outlook on life. We are so grateful for Carrie's experience, patience, and personal commitment. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Carrie. We all consider her a friend as well as a consummate professional. Thank you, Carrie!

    Having worked with Carrie for almost ten years, we have received the benefit of her talent and her continuously growing knowledge of many different modalities for fitness. Working with Carrie is always very personal because she adapts the training to every issue or concern that we may have. Always smiling, always prompt, always effective! David and Margaret Knowlton

    Carrie has been my personal trainer over the last four years. When we started working together, I had soreness issues with my knees and avoided running and using the stairs. After working out with Carrie, I no longer have problems with my knees. In addition, she also helped me with prenatal and postnatal fitness. Throughout my pregnancy, I had various physical issues crop up, and Carrie was exceptionally responsive with adjusting my workouts to factor in whatever I needed. I look forward to our weekly workouts and know that she always has my best interest in mind.
