"Ripple Effect helps to guide my attitude, my mental and physical strength and my ability to embrace the daily chaos that is just simply inherent in life’s journey."

The ladies at Ripple Effect inspire me.


The encouragement and support these amazing ladies gave me pushed me to keep going. They knew I could do it, and that made me believe in myself.

"I love training at RE because it’s a positive and supportive environment and I get stronger both physically and emotionally! What’s not to love?

We all need a coach and Carolyn is one of the very best.

Kathleen Stabler

Carolyn is a coach, a trainer, and a mentor but perhaps the best word is Guide.

Lee Sheftel

Carolyn has helped me both emotionally as well as physically in dealing with the severe back pain I had for a while and other issues I have had. We have become fast friends and I am eternally grateful for her, her staff and her programs.

Randy Levensaler

Over the last few years Carolyn and the crew at Ripple Effect have become an important part of my support team. They have created a space for me to test my physical limits, knowing I have a safety net of support and guidance.

Stepping through the doors of Ripple Effect was a huge turning point in my athletic career....what is certainly more important is the drastic improvement I have seen in the quality of my life, and for that I am forever grateful.

Under the guidance of the Ripple Effect Trainers miracles are possible. Using my body and physicalness as an access point, I lead a life full of belief, joy, connection and strength.

Finally, at Ripple Effect, I feel like I have found the special sauce. Since joining the gym, I have had some of my best success to date during my long runs in the mountains and even on a recent ultra marathon.

Carol Craig

I completed my 13th marathon in Boston. Feeling balanced and strong, I was amazed at my performance. Thank you Carolyn.

Carolyn's methods took a much different approach than my typical 'just go as hard as I can whenever I have time'. And surprise, surprise, it worked:)

Carolyn helps her athletes see weaknesses or imbalances as something to work through, not just a fact of life.

Carolyn and the staff at Ripple are incredibly knowledgeable and encouraging. As the years pile up, we realize that strength training is what will keep us on our bikes and skis for years to come.

Ripple Effect! Love it! We embrace our tri-weekly workouts (bear-crawl excepted), laugh a whole lot, and even compete for “extra credit”.

Someone in my situation is told more often what they cannot do, rather than being encouraged to push forward. It's hard to describe just how empowering it is to fill the role of "recovering athlete" instead of "permanently disabled”.
