Meet Carlene!

What classes do you teach?

In ARCAS at SLAC, I teach cross-training: a mix of strength, cardio and core exercises designed to improve overall strength and conditioning.

How long have you been teaching for?

I’ve been a fitness instructor for eight years and have been with Stanford for about a year.

Where are you from?

My parents are from the Bay Area, but I have lived all over California as well as England and Japan.

Why do you teach?

I enjoy the adrenaline and energy I get from group exercises. The group dynamic motivates me to exercise harder and better.

Any certifications? If so, what kind?

AFAA (Athletics and Fitness Association of America) Group Exercise Instructor, EXOS Fitness Specialist, Schwinn Cycling, SCW Barre and Aquatic exercise and a variety of other strength and core instruction certifications.

What do you like to do when you’re not teaching?

On the weekends, I head to the Sierras (mainly up near Bear Valley) to hike, kayak, SUP, cycle, ski or snowshoe, depending on the season.
