She graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Consumer Food Science and an Associates degree in Nutrition. Cari continues to coach gymnastics, tumbling and cheer; and she's been a group fitness instructor and personal trainer for almost 20 years. In 2013 Cari left a full time wellness and group fitness director position for a Fortune 500 Company so that she could branch out on her own.
Cari enjoys running for the fresh air and to clear her mind. Because she loves it so much she tends to sign up for charity races and events as well. Cari has run two half marathons to push friends and clients along the way! Cari also enjoys popping into a group fitness class when she can to allow someone else to challenge her.
Cari loves to train for and compete in fitness competitions so that she can continue her love for tumbling and spread fitness joy. Cari won her first competition as Ms. Fitness Missouri in 2009, and competed in Reno for Ms. Fitness USA that same year.
