Group fitness instructor, personal trainer

Carolyn has been working for CDU for over 13 years, what a trooper! She is a qualified group fitness instructor and personal trainer with years of dedication and experience up her sleeve.

A little about me…

I am 48 years old and have three daughters. I've worked at the CDU gym for about 13 years, making me the longest serving staff member. My husband and I run a local business, NTRS (NT Recycling Solutions), I work as the Business Development Manager.

In 2008 I won the Masters category in a Natural Body Building competition in memory of my sister who died from melanoma. Through this competition I promoted Sun Smart with the assistance of the NT Cancer Council.

In 2012 I won the Northern Territory Australian Training Award for my Cert IV in Personal Training.

You will often find me…

Trying to balance life between my role as a fitness instructor, business woman, wife and mother, all which I love and am grateful for.

My Favourite quote…

"Tell' em there dreamin'" from the movie The Castle.

What I love about fitness and health is…

I love the privilege of being a part of someone's life, sharing their wins and witnessing their excitement as they progress. My other favourite thing is all the crazy faces participants pull when they are struggling to get through a track during a class, I love it!

My approach to fitness…

When it comes to working towards being fitter and healthier I truly believe anyone can do it, it is not a measure of someone's wealth, education, social stature or cultural background, but more of their determination and will. Some people are genetically advantaged physically, but body size, weight and bulging muscles is not the only measure of success. When you have adapted a healthy active lifestyle, as an individual you should gain more energy, strength, agility, experience less stress, sickness and achieve a sense of pride and wellbeing. All of this helps people to deal with everyday life. I see my role as to customise and motivate in a realistic and positive way.

My hidden talents…

Pretending to do up my shoe lace or check my music during a class when I am tired, trust me I know all the tricks.

My specialty…

Weights resistance strength training, especially for women. A holistic approach to strengthening not just the physical body but also our minds and emotions. Often our harshest critic is the conversations we have on our own heads.
