Certified personal trainer, Carrie Kukuda, pulls from her own weight-loss and exercise trials when coaching her students through kettlebell, boot-camp, or personal-training sessions. Her 45- to 60-minute boot-camp classes motivate exercisers through kettlebell training, TRX resistance work, running, and yoga moves to tone muscles and jump-start heart rates.

Throughout all programs, Carrie inspires participants to soldier on with endless positive motivation and fitness tips for all types of students.
