Carole’s passion is helping seniors maximize their fitness, taking into consideration any physical limitations her clients may have. “Over my 28 years as a physical therapist, I saw firsthand how general fitness can make all the difference after an injury. Accidents will happen, but those who were regular exercisers recovered much more quickly than those who were sedentary prior to their accident.”
Carole uses the functional training approach, with most exercises performed while standing. In this way, the whole body works in a coordinated way, like normal daily activities.
Carole graduated from Georgia State University with a BS in Physical Therapy in 1985. She retired from P.T. in 2013. She began personal training with seniors after obtaining her ACE Personal Training certificate in 2012. She also has her Health Coaching certification from ACE, obtained in 2014
