Calliope Fitness & Arts
Rhonda Carol has spent a lifetime marrying fitness and self-expression into a single discipline. She studied the art of motion at Laban’s dance conservatory in London before honing her craft with New York masters including Wilhelm Burman and Phil Black. She augmented her training with professional experience, appearing in and directing off-Broadway shows penned by the likes of Ibsen, Pinter, and Sophocles. But, even while tapping into her inner artistry, she never let her fitness suffer, earning certifications as a fitness trainer, Pilates instructor, and wellness coach. Rhonda’s unique blend of experiences combined within her to form a formula for fun, expressive exercise, which she now shares with students through Calliope Fitness & Arts.
Aided by a team of other instructors and choreographers, Rhonda conducts classes that range from yoga and dance training to intense interval conditioning.
