Carrie McKewan, Personal Trainer


Exploring every sport imaginable growing up, Carrie found her niche in softball and continued developing her abilities throughout college at the University of British Columbia. Currently, she is attending the University of Puget Sound to broaden her comprehension of the connection between both mind and body. During her training as a collegiate athlete, she discovered the benefit of exercise on not only physique, but also mental health. This motivated her to explore a multitude of different forms of exercise. From skiing to weight training, she experienced a change in lifestyle for the better in terms of both health and fitness. It is her goal to encourage, mold, manipulate a multitude of fitness forms in hopes of translating a full mind and body awareness to establish a happy and healthy lifestyle. She is pursuing that goal at A2 as a personal trainer where she uses her background as an athlete, active individual, and passionate exercise specialist to guide others to achieve their goals and establish a healthier lifestyle than they believed possible. You can trust Carrie to bring a new perspective to training and mold a plan that meets your health and fitness needs.

 

"Before I started coming to A2 I was always tired and could barely pick up or carry my grandchildren a ½ block. After the first 6 weeks of working with Kristi I got a big surprise when I took my grandchildren to a festival and carried the youngest 4 blocks before she woke up enough to walk. I then picked her up and put her on my shoulders so she could see better without effort. I was amazed at how much strength I had gained in a short time. I continue to see improvement in my strength and I’m no longer tired all the time."

"It was very helpful to be taught exercises I could do at home to alleviate the pain in my back and to make my stomach/diaphragm stronger. It was a great experience and I took away a lot of knowledge to help myself."

"Dear Alika- I want to tell you how great A2 has been in helping me to succeed in getting better after my stroke. Your staff is not only knowledgeable but funny at the same time. They don’t make physical therapy seem tough; but they make it fun by teaching us the right way to stand, asking us how we are and encouraging us to reach our goals. My goal has always been to get back to “normal.” I appreciate all of your staff immensely. They are all great. You always have my recommendation for where to go for P.T."
