Cynthia Carpenter


Hi there! Welcome to my page, I am very happy you dropped in.

I am a nationally certified personal trainer, health and wellness coach and nutritionist who actually 'gets it'! At 50(+) I know the difficulties that a person goes through to try to get into shape since it was a long road for me to get here myself.

For over 20 years I was a happy smoker and quite sedentary with about 40 extra pounds of padding on my expanding butt.

One day I was cleaning the mirror over the hearth and saw my reflection. My under arm flab was waving back and forth and my right eye was squinted shut to keep out the smoke that was billowing out of the lit cigarette hanging out of my mouth. (Sexy eh?)

It took many tries to get fit and I didn't arrive until I was 43. All the trials I went through turned me on to the world of fitness and health and I have learned a thing or two along the way.

I believe in 'real world' fitness and not fad's. I believe in simple changes and everyday foods that people can actually manage and afford. Fitness and weight loss doesn't have to be weird or difficult.

Is it hard to lose weight? You bet - it can be really hard - but the process itself can be broken down into manageable 'bites' so you too can achieve your health goals.
