Carmen Farrand has always had a love for all things music.  Naturally, the music led format of Zumba is what first lead her into the fitness world in 2008 where she enjoyed classes instructed by her best friend. After a big family move from Central Ohio to Southern Ohio Carmen took the initiative to get certified in Zumba to create the same impact on others that her old instructor had on her.

Since that time she has been licensed in AFAA Personal Training , Zumba Toning, Zumba Gold, Zumba Sentao, Zumba Kids, and TRX Group Suspension.  Carmen takes the time to understand her clients to create a program that is unique to their goals and their concerns.  At the YMCA, Carmen believes both her group fitness classes and personal training are a perfect complement to one another.

Carmen enjoys spending time with her family and keeping up with her two active teenagers.  Her passions outside of fitness focus on leading church worship, enjoying coffee, and shopping at fancy food stores.
