Cara grew up in a very athletic family but found herself more involved in music than sports. She started running as an adult to get in shape and to push herself to do something new and challenging. It quickly turned into so much more. “When my mind shifted into viewing fitness as a ‘get to’ rather than a ‘have to’ everything changed. It became FUN, helped me physically keep up with my boys and became a mind, body and soul connection that has been life changing”.
While she still loves running, she has found group fitness to be a fun way to combine her love of music to her love of movement, connect with people and push herself physically. Cara lives in Hudsonville with her husband Luke, 4 boys and giant golden doodle, Maizey Blue.
