Carolyn (pronounced “carmen”) is one of the hottest women in fitness and fitness videos.
She’s been featured in the likes of a ton of fitness magazines and websites, and even appeared on ESPN’s Bodybuilding Live show in January.
But Carolyn says her career as a fitness model started with her parents’ wedding.
“My mom started me out in the fitness industry, which is basically what I am now,” she told Business Insider.
“They were kind of the first ones to make it for me.
My dad actually was my first professional trainer.”
Carolyn’s career started with the modeling career Thats all changed when she was just 14 years old.
“I started modeling in high school,” she said.
“Then, I started modeling for my own company, so I ended up working for some of the biggest brands in the world.”
But it wasn’t until her junior year at college that Carolyn made her move into the fitness business.
She says she found the career challenging at first, but after a couple years she was ready to move into bigger challenges.
“It was a lot of pressure, but it was also a lot less stressful,” she explained.
“There was always pressure to make the best work out there.
It’s kind of hard when you’re 14 to get to that point, but the people who are doing it for you and giving you that opportunity are always going to be the best, and I love that.”
Caroling is a business model with a big social media following.
She is a certified trainer and has a handful of YouTube channels where she shares her latest fitness videos, along with some other personal training tips.
She has over 1 million subscribers on YouTube, and her social media channels are packed with pictures of her wearing workout gear, exercising with friends, and sharing her own personal experiences.
“If you want to learn how to make a living from a personal trainer, it’s definitely worth it,” Caroling told Business Insiders.
“The people who do it are the best in the business, and they’re just so humble and genuine about it.”
She said that the biggest challenge with her personal training business was the stigma surrounding it.
“When people hear that I’m in the video business, they assume that it’s all about how I’m doing it,” she added.
“But there are a lot more people doing it than that.”
She also said that people can make a lot out of her lifestyle.
“People like me are doing what I love, which might sound cheesy, but I do love doing it, and people do, too,” she laughed.
Caroling says that she wants to continue her career by helping people reach their goals.
“In the beginning, I didn’t want to get my own business, but eventually I realized that I want to help other people reach theirs, and that’s what I’m here for.”
