I am constantly inspired by the people I work with, and I love the creativity that is required to train for mountain endeavors.

"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."

Ben Yardley

Carolyn has helped me become the athlete and human I am today.

Johann Aberger

The ladies at Ripple Effect inspire me.

Sara Porter

"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?

Ben Abruzzo

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

Tiffany Roberts

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.

Adam Lavender

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”.

Lee Sheftel

Carolyn has helped me both emotionally as well as physically. I am eternally grateful for her, her staff and her programs.

Randy Levensaler

Carolyn and the crew at RE have created a space for me to test my physical limits, knowing I have a safety net of support and guidance.

Kathleen Stabler

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

Nick Lenio

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

Lara Horst

Under the guidance of the Ripple Effect Trainers miracles are possible.

Sarah and John Villafranco

As the years pile up, we realize that strength training will keep us on our bikes and skis for years to come.

Carolyn Williams

Finally, at Ripple Effect, I have found the special sauce.

Carol Craig

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

Tara and Zack

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:)

Lucia Penzel

I appreciate Ripple Effect’s focus on strength and agility that protects and prevents from re-injury.

Sean Van Horn

Stepping through the doors of Ripple Effect was a huge turning point in my athletic career and in the quality of my life.

Dan Mirsky

Carolyn's focus on foundational, functional strength, balance and proper form are tenements for training and also for life.

Janice and Meredith

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


This is Enzo. At age 12 he is one of our most focused and dedicated athletes.

Liz and Tom Penzel

We always leave Ripple feeling a bit pained and tired but with a smile on our faces, knowing we are getting stronger and healthier.

Kate Hudson

If it had not been for the incredible upper body training that Carolyn and everyone at Ripple Effect helped me do all last winter, I am not sure I would be alive today.

Andrea Cutter

Oh Ripple Effect how I love you
Destruction of the old
Makes way for construction of the new...

Paul Perry

To witness Paul's overall performance gains and his humble attitude is always a gift.
