Carole is originally from the NY/NJ area. She spent 2 years in Gilbert, AZ before settling in Calabash, NC. She is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and an AFAA Group Instructor. Carole has been teaching fitness classes for over 10 years. She began her career teaching high impact cardio classes such as P90X and INSANITY. As the years went by, she moved into teaching Active Adult Fitness classes. She is certified through Silver Sneakers (Classic, Circuit, Splash & Stability) and the Functional Aging Institute (both Individual & Group Instructor). Carole has also attended several Senior Fitness workshops such as Exercise, Etc’s “Boot Camp Gold” & “Brains and Balance” and ACE’s “Senior Hearts”. The exercises in her classes mimic the movements we make in daily life such as carrying groceries, stepping over a curb, getting up from a chair, etc. Carole’s classes also include a Balance segment to aid in preventing falls. Her goal is to help people remain active and living independently as long as possible.
