Hi! I’m Carrie!
I’m a San Francisco based health coach and healthy living blogger.
When I walked into a gym for the first time, I was pretty intimidated. There were so many machines, weights, pulleys and cables and I had no idea what to do and where to start. Because of my fear, I kept doing the same old routine. I would hop on the elliptical or treadmill and ‘jog’ for 30 minutes. I’d finish up with a few crunches and call it my workout for the day.
The problem was, I was getting nowhere with how I wanted my body to look. My body was the same and I was tired of being frustrated with the lack of results. So, I drastically changed my training, hit the weights and fell in love with fitness and my new body. I eventually got certified and I am now training others and helping them make the transformation that I went through.
My relationship with food and exercise hasn’t always been great. At age six, I became a victim of sexual abuse and I struggled for many years with disordered eating habits and bouts of depression.
My journey to self love has been a difficult one (you can read more about that here!), but I’m a stronger person because of it. I hope this blog can be a source of inspiration for those who have struggled or are struggling through tough issues in their lives.
