About Carol

Thanks for checking out my profile!  I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA, and have been training and instructing locally for over 30 years and still loving it.  Some familiar places I‘ve trained include Bally’s, Gold’s Gym, Bodyplex, and Anytime Fitness to name a few.  I instructed Pilates classes for Gwinnett Medical Hospital for several years as well. A few years ago, I decided to become an independent trainer building my own client base.  Currently, I train in my fully-equipped fitness studio or client’s home (or desired location such as outside or community fitness center), as well as teach Yoga classes in Jefferson, and train Jackson County employees at their fitness facility.  


I train couples and women of all ages but specialize in a few areas. One is training individuals who struggle with losing weight and two, yo-yo dieters who want to finally get and keep the weight off and/or desire to make physical activity a lifestyle instead of a chore. I can help you not only lose weight but help you be free from an addiction to food.  It won't happen overnight but it can happen!  Progress not perfection is one  atof my mottos! Finally, I specialize in helping post-pregnancy women get tone back to their core and lose baby weight.  Being my own success story, I can share with you how I successfully lost weight eating real food, maintained that weight loss, and made physical fitness something I now enjoy and have made a way of life forever.  


Today, I love being physically active and hope it's contagious to those I meet.  Let's train together whether you are a beginner and new to exercise or have experience and want help with your fitness goals (build muscle or a strong core).  I can provide variety and freshness to your workouts.

Working with Carol has been an amazing experience! During the 6 months I have been working with her I have lost 40+ pounds and gained some good healthy changes in my life. Carol has been great with understanding my struggle between working full time and being a mom to two young kids- she’s given me ideas on workouts to do at home when I can catch a few minutes to myself, but can’t get to the gym. She’s been super helpful in helping me use different tools (apps/fitness band) to help keep me on track. I highly recommend Carol if you are looking to make some healthy changes in your life!

I joined a gym for the first time ever in January of 2016. The best decision I made after joining the gym was to hire a personal trainer. Fortunately, I was paired with Carol. She’s the best. While working with her, I lost 50 pounds. And almost two years later, I haven’t gained it back. I still have people at the gym ask me if getting a trainer was helpful. My answer is always ABSOLUTELY! And Carol is fantastic. She kept me accountable and taught me how to use all the equipment. And since I was a beginner, she helped me meet my goals and showed me things I just could not have known which would keep me from over doing and possible injury. And not only does she teach appropriate physical fitness, she includes the balance of nutrition to maximize your health goals. If I had not had her, I would have walked the treadmill, lost a few pounds, gotten bored and just continued to be discouraged. She gave me confidence to go into the gym and not be intimidated by the equipment. She’s changed my life. And the best part is, she’s become a wonderful friend. Couldn’t recommend her any higher. SHE’S THE BEST!

Carol has been such a blessing to my husband and me! She is professional, yet friendly, and knows how to keep our workouts fresh and effective! We HIGHLY recommend her services!

Carol is very professional and always makes our Silver Shoes and Yoga class so much fun. I have taken classes elsewhere and she is by far the best! Having fun makes it so much easier to exercise and she definitely does that. She is certainly an asset to fitness delivered.

Most uplifting and spirited trainer I ever met, forward with gentleness, awesome attitude, real instructive. I learned more from Carol in 1 month about good healthy habits and how to work out properly to get the most out of exercising daily than anyone I ever knew. I lost 3 pants sizes in 2 months by toning, eating, walking, working out with Carol twice a week.

I first started looking for a trainer at the end of June. I skimmed through several different profiles, but when I landed on Carol I knew she was the one. Her prices are great and she has a lot of experience. During the month of July, I met with her twice a week. This was a great kick start to a healthier lifestyle. I went from sitting on the couch, watching tv all day to happily working out daily. Since returning to work in August, Carol has been coming over to my house weekly. She is very encouraging and supports me in any way that she can. She creates a workout specific to my needs and records it all in a notebook, so that I can reference it until we meet again. I always feel amazing after we are done (this doesn't mean I don't whine sometimes) and that feeling is what keeps me going the rest of the week. She is realistic and understands that it's not always easy to make time for yourself, but constantly encourages me to be the best that I can be. I would definitely recommend her (just don't try to steal my time slot haha).

I absolutely love working out with Carol! She has helped me become stronger and healthier overall. So far I’ve lost 14lbs and that’s only the beginning. She is very encouraging and supports me in any way that she can. Each week, she creates a workout that is specific to my needs and walks me through it step by step. One of the most helpful things is that she records the workout in a notebook, so that I can reference it on days when we are not meeting. She pushes me hard, but in a caring way. I always feel amazing after our workout (even if I whine sometimes... okay, all the time) and this feeling keeps me going the rest of the week. I can’t wait to see where the rest of the year takes me, but I know one thing for sure... Carol will support me every step of the way!
