“It’s so rewarding to see residents improve, to see that they feel invigorated,” adds Carolyn, “and that is truly a pleasure.” Carolyn dedicates some of her time to exploring and reading up on the latest research, trends and innovations in the fitness world to be able to help residents reach their fitness goals.
