Carina Reid

My mission is to ignite change in every human I meet, to fire up optimal success in all aspects of their lives from the inside out. Whether it’s helping empower our troubled youth, personal training or instructing classes I have an unstoppable drive to help others.

I formed Fuel PHitness in the spring of 2020 because with all my heart I believe that fitness heals! Your body is intended to move. Movement is medicine to your entire being and you have the power to create, shape and be your own medicine.

I am so humbled and honored to win your votes!
