Carol has had a passion for fitness and healthy living since childhood. Having great role models such as progressive grandparents who taught her to respect health and treat fitness as a necessary means to enjoy a full life propelled her into the fitness industry at an early age.
As a collegiate-level swimmer, and being motivated to compete, she landed in competitive aerobics and was an aerobics instructor (in the ’80’s..),entered triathlons, and competed in bike racing.
After finding Pilates in 1999, due to a realization that restorative, core-focused, mindful exercise was the best thing for her body. The Pilates method has elements of physical therapy and is profoundly based on correct alignment and movement. This became her passion.
In 2005, she founded ONE Pilates and Fitness, based in Sacramento, CA. For 10 years it was a place for her to practice and teach others the wonderful benefits of Pilates.
Recently relocating to Truckee, CA, she is happy to be a part of The Bar Effect!
