Cari has been involved in women's fitness since 2008 when she started working for the women's gym where she had lost over 80 pounds as a member. She wanted to help other women find their own success. Working there, she fell in love with teaching classes like spin, step aerobics, and cross training, plus working one on one with women as a personal trainer. In 2017, she started her own mobile personal training business bringing the workouts right into her clients' homes. After being introduced to Kaia FIT, she knew that this special company was where she could make the biggest difference to the largest number of women. She has worked as a Weight Watchers leader coaching hundreds of people in CA and ID through their weight loss journeys. She holds a national certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine with a specialization in Weight Loss Nutrition, and is now a certified Kaia coach! In addition to her fitness industry experience, Cari has also worked in sales and recruiting for over 10 years, bringing a lot of experience in growing businesses and managing high-performing teams. Why Cari Likes Kaia: When I walked into Kaia FIT for the first time, the coach knew I was coming and greeted me by name. She was so welcoming and introduced me to several people in class. The women in the class were so full of energy and fun. They were encouraging each other and high-fiving all over the place, and it was like no other workout experience I had ever had. I saw women of all ages and sizes, working out at different levels but all still feeling like they were part of the same team. It was just so unique and positive, AND the workout kicked my butt! I knew that I couldn't go back to regular gym workouts. I need Kaia in my life to push me and encourage me and make exercise way more fun than I thought it could be!
