Carmelle Jean-Francois

Richmond Hill, NY 11418

My background is in Martial Arts- Karate to be exact. Studied a form of Karate in a small dojo my instructor called AMERICANIZED SELF-DEFENSE. After I achieved black belt, I slowly found myself becoming lazy and completely unmotivated. I remained unmotivated for about 10 years, working out for a few months at a clip with no commitment to anything I started. It took a car accident to finally 'wake' me up. There were some broken bones involved and I knew that I'd have to work out in order to help myself heal faster and get those bones and my body strong again. So that I did. I began to love it. Although it was a different type of training from what I was used to, I still couldn't get enough- the thrill was back!! Before I knew it, I was studying and taking tests and receiving certifications and working out daily. Since then, I've become a Personal Trainer, a Medical Exercise Specialist, a Boot Camp Instructor and my latest endeavor: a PRE & POST NATAL EXERCISE SPECIALIST- all on a part-time basis. Currently, I have 3 NYC Marathons under my belt and about a half dozen half marathons. Training for the 2015 NYC Marathon will commence towards the end of this summer. I'll end by saying: Loving this ride!! And loving that I still have a ways to go in terms of my own development and learning! Meanwhile, I absolutely LOVE helping people along their own journey to fitness and I absolutely LOVE that people actually look towards me for guidance. I am so grateful!!!!
