I can’t say enough great things about Carla. She is AMAZING!! If you’re lucky enough to make it onto her schedule, you will NEVER want to stop working out with her. When I started working with Carla, I was in my late 30s, 20 pounds overweight, had a lot of random body pain, and was generally just a very sedentary woman. I wanted to get fit and be a more active person, but I didn’t know how to get there on my own. I knew it was only going to get harder the older I got, but I also knew I needed a (positive) motivator and someone who really knows how the body works. Carla has been all that and so much more! Working out with Carla has helped me achieve so many of the health and fitness goals I’ve struggled with over the years. I’ve gotten stronger, leaner, and more confident in my body just by doing reasonable, enjoyable amounts of exercise several times a week. I've lost 25 pounds and I don’t even know how many inches (she keeps track though!). Let’s just say I've dropped FOUR dress sizes. It’s not just about the weight loss, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t love fitting into my clothes better. ;) I’m just so much more confident and healthy-feeling. And, honestly, all I have to do is keep showing up. Also, I was having a lot of chronic pain when we started, which was something I was worried would keep me from being able to really workout. But Carla is so knowledgeable and is always able to help me modify as we go, so that I can stay active no matter what is going on with my body. Now I can say that my pain is significantly reduced. It’s not totally gone, but that’s because I have some health issues. But I (and my doctors) can pretty much guarantee the pain would be worse if I hadn’t finally gotten more active. And I couldn’t have done it without Carla. She knew just how to get me started so that it wasn’t too much too fast. Yet still I was able to start seeing instant results in my energy and strength. I really feel so much more connected to my body through working with her. One of the best parts of working out with Carla is that she always keeps it fresh - it’s never the same boring workout. She always has something new up her sleeve and a big smile on her face. She’s an absolute bright spot in my day and a funny, smart, thoughtful person to boot. All I can say is that if you get a chance to work with Carla, DO NOT pass it up! (Oh, and my husband works out with her, too, and she totally got him strong and lean. He has literally said, “I never want to stop working out with her!”. So this review is for you guys out there, too!)

Carla is the most amazing and successful trainer I have ever worked with. She not only assists with my goal setting and my training at the highest level, she has also become a mentor, therapist and friend. She genuinely cares about her clients and does everything she can to help them reach their goals. Carla will create a custom plan for you and make adjustments as time and situations change. I can’t speak more highly about her ability to keep you on track with the necessary guidance and gentle persuasion. As a result, I am happy to say I have lost 70 lbs and counting!! Carla is awesome and I enthusiastically recommend you get in touch with her so she can help you as she has done for me.


Very Conscientious. Carla has been great! I have some challenging health issues which have weakened my body significantly. Carla was very thorough in understanding all of my issued and is adapting my training plan with all of those issues in mind.
