I specialize in and work solely with female clients. Female clients have different needs than male clients do.
I started training clients after seeing how my workout posts on social media were inspiring and motivating others, and after several requests to train friends and family (and even a few acquaintances). I have a passion for helping women exercise in the comfort of their own homes (or outside) because I understand how convenient it is and I also understand the intimidation that a gym can cause many women. I personally have always trained at home, getting up to exercise daily at 5 am.
I have worked with brides-to-be, clients with Rheumatoid Arthritis, back problems (specifically spinal fusion), kidney disease & lupus, anxiety, moms (sometimes with their kids along) and pre-natal clients.
I tailor each workout specifically to each client and include a lot of strength training exercises as well as HIIT (if they are at that fitness level) as well as lots of flexibility and mobility exercises. When the weather is nice I encourage my clients to train outside, either in their backyard or a local park. I like to mix up their routines to keep them engaged and enjoying their workouts.
My favorite exercise
Squats are one of my favorites because their are so many fun variations you can do with them. I incorporate a lot of yoga poses into my workouts like chair squats. I also love sumo squats, suitcase squats, squat jacks, single leg squats, squat jumps, walls squats & goblet squats.
My favorite quote
"Get comfortable with being uncomfortable."
My training philosophy
Consistency is key. You can't expect results in two weeks. I like to build healthy habits and fitness habits that will last a lifetime...not just a 90 day program. Slow and steady wins the race. I like to build a well-balanced training program for all my clients that includes: flexibility, mobility, strength and cardiovascular.
My training experience
I've only been training for 4 years, but I've worked with a variety of clients including: brides-to-be, clients with RA, clients with spinal fusion, overweight clients, and pre & post-partem clients. I've also done partner workouts, outdoor workouts, HIIT workouts, chair workouts, yoga-inspired workouts, and senior workouts.

I have known Carrie A Groff, Personal Trainer, for many years and know her to be extremely knowledgeable in the body's anatomy. She will adjust her work-outs for each client no matter age and/or health conditions. Carrie also offers sound advice on excellent vitamin supplements as well as healthy eating habits. The wonderful thing about Carrie is she comes to your home where you feel most comfortable. On warmer days she will walk and work-out with you outdoors enjoying the fresh air! I highly recommend Carrie A Groff for all your fitness needs.
I really enjoy how Carrie fully understands how each exercise works distinct muscle groups!
I enjoy and look forward to my sessions Carrie is a very good trainer that is not just there for the work out but is very educated one other aspects of your health such as what you eat smoothies and things with natural ingredients She sure is a lot of interest in helping you meet your goals I enjoy every minute of the work out
Carrie is awesome! She is also an amazing trainer. She didn't focus only on the exercise but also on the emotional side of things and all other aspects pertaining to making good health choices in order to attain my desired weight. Through her expertise, I was able to understand my progression better, and also understand that it won't happen exactly the same with everyone. It was truly life changing and people who saw changes in my body were eager to have her contact. She definitely knows what she is doing. Highly recommended!
Carrie is a great trainer! She will make you work and get you results. For a worth it sweat sesh book her!
I have been working with Carrie for over a year. I have never enjoyed exercising. But if I have to miss a session, I always try to make it up. She is the perfect balance of encouragement and firmness. She pushes you to your limits ... but never over. Although I won’t admit it to her, I enjoy my workouts. I highly recommend her!
Carrie deserves a 5 Star!
Carrie’s unique strength is her keen ability to assess your needs and then design an individual program for you. She is fully engaged and never slacks off for a minute during your workout. She is constantly observing, encouraging and giving feedback. Her passion and knowledge inform every workout. Her quick wit and personable demeanor are just added perks for each session! If you are hiring a personal trainer, Carrie is first-rate!
I have had the opportunity to work with Carrie for the last 2 years. We meet three times per week. She tailors the work out to my physical ability and needs to reach my goals. She listens to me. She is honest in her advice. She is extremely experienced. She is expert in the field and can accommodate any challenge or limitation. She is skilled at targeting muscle groups with a variety of techniques and is great at modifying moves when needed to keep the work out on target. I enjoy my time with her and always look forward to our next meeting. She paces me, pushes me, and helps me grow. For ALL of these reasons I highly recommend her to anyone looking to get healthy and or in shape. She is worth the investment. I promise you will not be disappointed.
