I can’t overpraise Carolyn’s Fitness and Yoga. The  studio is airy and well equipped  and surrounded by trees, which creating a relaxed atmosphere. Carolyn is totally professional and extremely well qualified,  at the same time , welcoming. friendly and reassuring. She understands the individual client’s problems, and tailors the sessions to their special needs. I feel better after every session and look forward to the next.

Carolyn IS the best.  Low impact exercises designed to improve flexibility and mobility.  Especially good routines for the computer generation – those who sit at computers much of the day.  What Carolyn offers is not your typical gym trainer -very different than Crossfit or any other club type trainer.  I agree with all that Gary has to say and more.  If you want to feel better, see Carolyn.  If you want to improve your “core” strength see Carolyn.  If you want to improve balance and flexibility, see Carolyn.  Just give her a try, you won’t be disappointed.
