About Me

Fitness became my second career in 2009 after leaving my ten years of dental service.

From April 2011 to September 2011, Carrissa kept my body guessing what muscle groups would be targeted next. In the past, I would get a work out routine and then plateau. Once I started training with Carrissa, reduntant routines were in the past. Almost two years later I am still asking Carrissa for work out and nutrition advice. With her e-mails and facebook updates I am able to still gain knowledge from her since I am unable to train with her now. After being out of her watch for about a year in a half, I am kicking myself for not following her directions on eating what is right. Now I am starting from scratch on the lifestyle change, when I could have simply did everything Carrissa had told me while training with her. She not only help me get fit but she improved my stability and made me stronger. My husband, who is a work out guru, would occasionally attend sessions with Carrissa was challenged by her workouts. Before he would not use proper form, which has taken a toll on his prior-infantry body. Since Carrissa showed the two of us how to use our bodies correctly while maintaining stability, we know now how to get fulllfilment out of every workout. I strongly recommend Carrissa with Absolute Body & Core for all of your health, fitness, and nutrition needs!

There was never a moment for me to give up on myself because she believed in me. She made working out fun, and was there the whole time pushing me to reach my potential. Thank you Carrissa

It's Never a dull day at the gym when you train with Carrissa. She uses a variety of training methods which keeps me focused and wanting more. Plus she has me doing workouts that I didn't even know I was capable of and I feel amazing. She is a phenomenal trainer! If you want the best, call Carrissa.
