7 Questions to get to know your Enterprise Master Trainer, Carla…
1. What do you love about being a Personal Trainer at Enterprise?
I learn something new every day. It’s like a book of endless knowledge, and I take away something from each and every one of my Team-mates! You can never stop learning and under the guidance of Enterprise Fitness and Mark. I will continue to further my career as a Personal Trainer and always participate in ongoing educational development programs.
2. What hobbies do you enjoy if any?
I have love and passion for fitness competitions, they will always be apart of me. I love the challenge, the process and the drive it takes.
I’m a very social person and enjoy time with friends and hanging with work colleagues; weather it is breakfast, lunch, dinner or a simple ‘long black’.
It’s the simple things in life that make me happy.
3. What’s the best part of your job?
Results, client transformations and having a huge impact on clients success.
Helping clients achieve their goals is such a rewarding feeling. I will never forget the first year of being a trainer, I prepared a client for an INBA fitness competition who took out two 1st place trophies. This was such a satisfying and rewarding feeling and gave me more enthusiasm to work harder for my clients and give them the best. As a results based person, I like it when results become tangible!
4. How did you get into weight training?
I have always been very active my whole life as such I started training in the gym in my early twenties.
When I began, I was your timid cardio girl in the gym who had no idea how to lift a single weight and who never felt one-hundred percent about her body. I was always dieting or “working out” to reach a certain weight. My body and my emotions would fluctuate because that’s all I knew. I needed a goal to work towards and a challenge to change my mindset.
This is how I got into doing my first fitness modelling competition. Weight training was a non-negotiable and neither was the exclusion of cardio machines!
There is NOT ONE cardio machine at Enterprise Fitness… This was the first thing I noticed when I started my prep! The competition prep taught me how important it is to nourish your body and how I can eat more than ever in order to get the results I want!
5. How has weight training and proper nutrition changed your life?
The first time I ever truly weight trained with proper technique and form was prepping for my first fitness model competition. I saw nothing but huge changes in my body for the better. I felt strong, lean and built some nice curves and muscle instead of looking skinny. Fitness is an integral part of my lifestyle. I love the feeling of being strong, empowered and proud. Strong is the new skinny they say… Perfect way to sum it up for me!
6. What are your training goals?
Competing in seven fitness modelling competitions since 2014 has equipped me with both mental and physical strength to pursue my goals towards competing.
My 2017 goal is to compete at the WBFF which will be held in May for the second time.
