Cinde Carroll


Studio Owner, Certified Instructor & Pre-trainer

Cinde Carroll's passion for fitness began at ten years old with studies in Jujitsu. She enrolled as the only female in an elite Chinese Kenpo school and exhibited such strength and technique her Sensei mandated she begin teaching advanced fitness classes to the upper rank students at the age of sixteen. She became certified by the Shiatsu Institute of Oriental Medicine. From there, she was unstoppable-moving on to become a ACSM & ACE certified group fitness instructor and personal trainer. Cinde was soon a sought ought trainer, frequently recruited to exclusive health spas and facilities all over Chicago. She honed her skills in corrective exercise, working with professional athletes and rehabing injured patients at the Gadja Sports Medical Center. Cinde continues taking dance classes, movement classes, educational classes and more. 



In 1988, Cinde relocated to Florida to work as Fitness Director at the world-class Colony Beach and Tennis Resort in Longboat Key. At this point in her career, she sought additional certifications as an ACSM Fitness Leader and an AAHFP Exercise Medical Specialist and Post-Rehabilitation Conditioning Specialist. Her expertise in these areas allowed for Cinde to make her mark nationally as a presenter at New York City's ACSM and Metrosports Magazine Conferences, lecturing on the topic of "Balance and Stability" in 1992. Cinde's interests in Mind-Body wellness resulted further into certification through Stott® Pilates in 2001. She decided to branch out on her own to open CCFIT/Cinde Carroll Fitness & Pilates Studio in 2003, adding certifications in TRX Suspension Training® and Aerial Yoga shortly afterward.



Cinde's journey through GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methodology began in 2011. She was elevated to GYROTONIC® Pretrainer in 2014 and looks forward to evolving her education in these modalities, as she combines it with the knowledge and experience she has attained through over three decades of study.
