Carmen began her career as a personal trainer in Santa Cruz, Ca. 1973 while attending college pursuing a degree in Physical Education. Eventually her experience landed her the head trainer position and she was hired as training director for the chain of gyms known as Spa Fitness Centers in Northern California. Her duties included teaching all employees at 4 facilities throughout Northern California how to evaluate clients and design a customized personal workout program for each individual.
