A Little About BarBelles At Home….
Barbelles At Home originated back in 2007 before the social media craze really took off. The idea behind this website was to bring video workouts and written workouts to my clients and friends who could not see me in person either because they lived out of town or only had time for me a few times a week. My site gives people (mostly women) the opportunity to get the benefits of me and my fitness knowledge without actually having to be on my schedule. Since the start of this website, my husband and I made the move from Charleston, SC to the mountains of Greenville, SC. Greenville has really taken off and is a “hot” spot! We also got married and went from just the two of us to a party of 6! As our children get older, life gets even more hectic and busy! However, I still make health and fitness a top priority. I think it’s very important for my own well being as it is for my children to see me living a healthy life and for them to live a healthy life.
A Little About Caroline……
I completed my undergraduate education at Auburn University (WAR EAGLE!) where I played lacrosse for all 4 years and captained the team my final two. I went on to earn my master’s degree in Health, Exercise, and Sport Science at The Citadel, where as a graduate assistant I developed the Fitness Assessment Services Program. While working on my degree, I trained for and competed in several figure competitions including South Carolina State Competition, where I won first place, and Jr. USA’s. Having to constantly be competing in something, I enjoy HIIT, plyometrics, weightlifting, running, and spinning classes. I have completed 6 half marathons. I also contribute to several fitness magazines.
As a busy mom of 4, life can be crazy! My 9 year old, 7 year old, and 5 year old, and 1 year old constantly keep me running! They are busy, active, and FULL of energy. Lots of sports, school pick ups, and cooking keeps me busy. I have to find time to workout every single day, whether it be 5am or nap time if the big kids are in school. I love playing with them and love spending time in the snow-snowboarding..
One of the reasons I have Barbelles At Home is to help busy women like me get a workout into their hectic schedule….whether it be 5am when everyone is still asleep, when they are at school, or when your littlest is playing on the floor with their toys.
I am just a normal girl who made it a point to find a way to make health and fitness a staple in my life. So I know you can do it to! Let’s get started!
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you
really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I lived
through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” . . . You must
do the thing you think you cannot do”.
“Fitness has the ability to transform you not only physically, but in every aspect of your life”
“You can’t have excuses and results”

“Exercise not only changes your body, it changes your mind, your attitude, and your mood”
