My training style is informed by my love of strength sports and my background in performance movement – feeling the body from the inside to express and control the exterior. The mind and body are not separated, and the training experience I give my clients leaves them stronger, fitter, and feeling better than when they met me. We don’t live in bodies, we ARE bodies. You will learn classic strength movements like squats, deadlifts and presses as well as how to perform dynamic moving exercises like walking carries and sled movement - all of which build muscle, improve conditioning, and body-awareness. I stress quality of movement and proper mechanics; I want my clients to learn how to lift and exercise in a way that they can sustain for life, injury-free.
Learning to lift is like learning to cook; everyone should know how, but everyone needs to be taught. As a competitive Strongwoman athlete with 16 competitions under my belt who works with a coach herself, I understand that coaching is a role that grows as the relationship with the client grows. I am here to help you explore your abilities, discover new ones, and get on the path toward discovering your body's potential.

Who I Especially Like Working With
Whenever I tried to work out myself I would focus on cardio. I always thought that losing weight meant cardio. When working with previous trainers - they would focus on cardio! I found that so boring and never stuck with it. Cara really switches up the exercises and we never do the same thing twice. I look forward to coming to the gym for the first time in my life. We focus on strength training and it makes me want to push myself. Cara is very patient. She explains things different ways until I understand them. She not only makes sure I understand the movement but also why we are doing it and which muscles it is working. Definitely worth my time and money.
