Professional Commitment

Carol A. Witham Certified Medical Exercise Specialist opened in July of 1998.  We began on Union Street in Rockport, ME.  In July of 2001, we moved to the location at Midcoast Recreation Center on Route 90 in Rockport, ME.  December 2012, I decided to move my personal training business to my home and cut back my hours.  I still do Essentrics and T’ai Chi classes at MRC. 

My commitment to my former community included a free class for people with Parkinson’s disease at Quarry Hill every Friday morning at 10:00am and facilitating the Parkinson’s Support Group for this area.  Additionally, the senior T’ai Chi class is only $5.00 and has been forever.

I am committed to upholding  the highest educational and professional standards. Through my knowledge and care, I enable my clients to attain improved levels of fitness that enhance their daily lifestyles.

In addition to personal training, I have additional certifications that allow me to work with people who have neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s, stroke recovery, etc.   

I provided weekly T’ai Chi and Qigong classes for adults and seniors in my community for 25 years.

The class specifically for people who have Parkinson's Disease was held at Quarry Hill every Friday morning.  This class was designed by Carol about 10 years ago and continues to evolve as I learn new ways to help clients with this progressive neurological disease.  I have the endorsement from the local neurological physician's group for this work with people living with this chronic disease.

Essentrics (™) classes were being offered two days a week.  I am only one of about 10 people fully certified as an Essentrics insturctor in the United States.

It is a great pleasure to be asked to occasionally contribute articles to a website for which a good friend is the director, http://www.giftfromwithin.org.  This organization works with people who have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Additionally, I have reviewed and edited course material for Continuing Education Courses for Personal Trainers for GMP Fitness in New Jersey.
