When I met Carrie, I was a Wounded Warrior recovering from a major surgery. With her guidance and encouragement, I was able to excel in my cardio rehab. Then 6 years later, I needed another major surgery and who was there? Carrie right by my side with her expertise and knowledge and did everything to push me to recover 6 months faster than the doctors had expected. Her understanding of dietary needs, fitness, and the capabilities of the human body (and human spirit) is above anyone.
Coach Novotny is simply amazing!! What's most admirable about her is her dedication to her clients cause--she's in it with you until the end. It's been a long road, but no pain, no gain. Novotny! Thanks, Carrie for helping me reach my fitness goals.
My goals were to lose fat, gain muscle and hopefully lose some weight. I had been doing high intensity workouts multiple times a week for over a year but was seeing little results so I decided to change it up and do weight training with Carrie. I was worried that I would bulk up however in less than 5 months I have dropped 2 pants sizes, 3 jacket sizes and 20 lbs. Carrie continues to help me transform my body into a leaner, muscular body shape that I am actually receiving compliments on at 43 years of age! The best thing about Carrie’s sessions is that she really develops them based on the individual and each session is unique. Not only am I never bored at the sessions but I actually look forward to seeing what challenges Carrie has planned for me that day. The experience has been so good that I am now taking my teenage daughter to sessions with Carrie and she absolutely loves them!
The (8 week customized) plan was badass and exactly what I like to do!"
I am a serious outdoorsman and skier. At 44 years of age I never expected to be strength training, let alone focused on Olympic Lifting with Coach Carrie. It started out by accident. I take classes in the gym, a lot, my cardio is good, and while I have stayed "leaner", I have had trouble building strength. I took a couple of sessions with Coach Carrie to help with my bench press and now cannot remember how many months I have been training with her. For fun one day, and it is fun, she had me try Olympic Lifting. It was a big mistake because I loved dropping the weights and the full body movement. I have never been hurt with these big movements and that is entirely due to Coach Carrie being a certified strength coach, knowing what the hell she is doing, actually caring about her clients, and only encouraging you and never pushing you into a danger zone. I am stronger, I am more flexible, I am less likely to get hurt in other activities, and I feel good.
