About Foothills FBBC
Greetings everyone, Carol here!
Thank you all for taking the time to explore and learn more about Foothills Fit Body Boot Camp nestled in the beautiful foothills of the Tucson Catalina Mountains. I appreciate this opportunity to share with you a little bit about myself and how my passion grew to bring you all Tucson’s very own Foothills FBBC.
I was born and grew up in a small town community in New England, Massachusetts. Playing sports and staying fit was instilled in my youth, and continued through my college years being part of the Basketball, Tennis and Running Teams. It was during these days that my LOVE and passion for fitness and nutrition began as a way to supplement and advance my own athletic endeavors and skills. During my college years, I earned a Bachelor Degree in Political Science from The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and a Master Degree in Management from Troy State University while serving our county in the U.S. Air Force as a Medical Technician. Following my military service here locally at Davis-Monthan AFB in 1998, I became a Police Officer for the Tucson Police Department and retired as a Detective in 2017. During my career in Law Enforcement, my passion for fitness and nutrition continued to develop and I earned my AZ Law Enforcement Post Certification as a Fitness Instructor for the Tucson PD, became a Certified NASM Personal Trainer, became a Certified Yoga Instructor, became a Certified Fit Body Boot Camp Trainer Instructor/Nutrition Counselor, and CPR/AED accreditation. Through each of these avenues with continuous instruction, training, skills and development, I now serve as an expert in these related fields.
My personal decision to create Foothills Fit Body Boot Camp started with a desire to bring forward and instill in others a lifestyle for themselves and their families centered around improving and creating personal health and wellness as a way of life and everyday living. Coming from two very stressful prior careers in the Air Force and the Police Department, I found and realized much of my life was lived in a constant state of overwhelm just through the nature of these professions. Over time this began to take a toll on my overall personal health and wellness, and I knew it was time to get back on track and implement improved fitness and nutrition habits back into my own life.
It was at this time when my wonderful husband Robert Carruth and I discovered Fit Body Boot Camp and learned first hand about this incredible, entirely complete, fitness, health and wellness model, and the positive health and wellness improvements it already had on the lives of hundreds of thousands of other people throughout the world. Through my own experience with Fit Body Boot Camp, I saw first hand how it encompasses a complete well rounded fitness, nutrition, accountability, social support, and community based program that brought me back to what I most valued dearly as an aspiring youth growing up in a small town.
Along my own fitness journey, by following the same principles of FBBC, I have personally lost 8 % in body fat, regained the same stamina and strength of my youth resulting in improved body tone/definition, have sustained levels of energy throughout my day through proper nutrition, and have eliminated the early signs of pre-menopause I began experiencing three years ago.
vThrough our own personal life journey, Rob and I and knew this was the life course and direction we wanted to take as we continue to serve the local community we LOVE as we aim to help impact and improve the lives of over 10,000 residents in the Tucson metropolitan area.
I look forward to seeing you all in our positive, high energy, motivated sessions, and congratulating everybody who walks through our doors in your quest to create and continue a life of good health.
Committed to your success,
Foothills Fit Body Boot Camp Owner and Coach
