MEET CAROL + ALEX
Wife to Chris (21 years), mother to four (Will, 18; Hannah 16; Katherine 11; Olivia 9), personal trainer, cycling performance and nutrition coach, Carol has been in the health and fitness industry for 30 years. She holds multiple certifications in cycling, personal training and nutrition and has dedicated her professional career helping others believe all things are possible. Years of coaching and seeing diet trend after diet trend disconnect people from what truly nourishes, destroy their self-image and steal their joy led her to create Fuel Your Body, Feed Your Soul. By the Grace of God, she crossed paths with Alex and what began as a simple Facebook group has now evolved into the Common Sense Transformation.
Carol was raised in a Jewish family. After asking her family’s Pastor in Seattle questions every Sunday, he challenged her to read the Old Testament and look for Jesus on every page. There He was. On every page. She accepted Christ and was baptized at the age of 43.
Two verses guide her:
Proverbs 3:5-6: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.
Romans 12:2a: Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
A farm-raised Tennessee girl, Alex holds multiple certifications in personal training, nutrition and holistic lifestyle coaching. She was raised by two active and health-minded parents and found work in the health and fitness industry to be a natural fit. Growing up in the millennial generation, Alex experienced first-hand the damage of the modern lifestyle diets combined with the negative influence of social media. She has dedicated her life’s work to helping others find a life of freedom from the diet mentality and from fear-driven restriction.
She lives by these words of Paul:
Romans 8:37-39: No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
