Cara Cunningham

I feel so fortunate to have a career at which I am able to encourage some and celebrate others daily. At the age of 25, I made a decision to change my lifestyle completely and I have kept the “extra” 65 pounds off for over 10 years. Many people are look for encouragement to help in their life-changing journey. I am so proud that I can provide them with reachable goals. I have been there and I want to help you be successful!

    I really wanted to have a personal trainer like Jillian on the Biggest Loser. I wanted results and I wanted someone to push me. Cara did such a great job of motivating me, but she is also did an amazing job of encouraging me.
    I loved how she would have the routine ready for me at the beginning of each session and how it could be modified or changed to challenge me that day.
    She really made working out fun and I looked forward to each session with her.

    I have had the pleasure of having Cara apart of my now-existent fitness routine for 6+ months now and I can say that it has turned my outlook and perspective on exercising totally around.

    I look forward to each and everyone of our training sessions. She pushes me to do my best and keep going when I don't feel like doing it anymore. She keeps tabs on my progress, makes every workout new and exciting (TRX WOOHOO!), and is there to share in my accomplishments.

    Additionally, she has given me the ideas and tips that have led me to move forward in other activities I would have never dreamed of trying! She is an amazing, upbeat Spin instructor and I am participating in my first race in a few months!
