Testimonials from our Personal Training Clients

Maggie, Outside the box clientFrom the first time I met Chris and Carolyn, I felt that my questions were being listened to. My initial assessment was thorough and identified areas that needed my attention. Carolyn outlined what she could offer in training and we began our relationship.

I am extremely satisfied with the personal training I have received. Carolyn is very attentive and meticulous in her instructions. I really appreciate that she does not let me give up if a particular movement is uncomfortable at the beginning. She works with me to build strength in different ways, so that I can complete the task. I appreciate the detail that Carolyn offers. Each movement is carefully orchestrated and observed. I love that this is "training" and not just exercise.

Jenny, Outside the box clientWhen I started working out with Carolyn at Outside the Box Fitness, I was hoping to lose those last 10 pounds and, maybe, become more toned in the process. I had no idea the amount I was going to learn!!! Over the past year, Carolyn has helped me re-frame my outlook on my body, my fitness plan, and my eating habits. I now celebrate what my body can do (band assisted pull-ups, bench raised push-ups, 115 lbs back squats) thanks to my individual written workout routine that I enjoy, and I am eating to fuel these accomplishments!

AND, without even realizing it, I've lost weight and become more toned - but more importantly, Carolyn has helped me to understand that “(e)xercise is a celebration of what your body can do not a punishment for what you ate.” (Women’s Health UK, posted on Instagram - June 21, 2016).

Knowledgeable instruction, detailed attention to performing exercises/ movements correctly. Personalized one on one attention as required. Friendly reminders regarding attendance accountability keep me on track. Diet assessment and recommendations were very helpful- I probably should have done that a year ago- overall visible results.
