Carolyn has helped me become the athlete and human I am today.
"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."
"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.
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 as well. We have become fast friends as well and I am eternally grateful for her, her staff and her programs.
Carolyn is a coach, a trainer, and a mentor but perhaps the best word is Guide.
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. While working with Ripple Effect has allowed me to climb back on the podium in the sports that I love, 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.

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.
I completed my 13th marathon in Boston. Feeling balanced and strong, I was amazed at my performance. I crossed the finish line feeling like I could run at least three more miles.
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.
I appreciate Ripple Effect’s focus on strength and agility that protects and prevents from re-injury.
Carolyn helps her athletes see weaknesses or imbalances as something to work through, not just a fact of life.
Carolyn's focus on foundational, functional strength, balance and proper form are tenements for training and also for life.

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:)

Ripple Effect! Love it! We embrace our tri-weekly workouts (bear-crawl excepted), laugh a whole lot, and even compete for “extra credit”.
The encouragement and support these amazing ladies gave me pushed me to keep going. They knew I could do it, even when I wasn't so sure, and that made me believe in myself. RE you’ve been life changing, Thank you!
Someone in my situation is told more often what they cannot do or will not be able to 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”.
