Carrie Markham is a 5th generation Phoenician who decided upon high school graduation to accept a two sport collegiate athletics scholarship in Charlotte, NC.  Upon graduation from Belmont Abbey College in 2009 with a BS in Sports Management, she continued her education at Pfeiffer University receiving a Masters in Leadership and Organizational Change.  After receiving her Masters, she stayed in the south another few years working an internship in the NBA and began her softball coaching career.  In 2012, Carrie decided to make her trek back across the country to her hometown of Phoenix where her love for softball led her to start her own softball pitching coach career which transformed to personal training.  After spending countless hours with female athletes who struggled to perform specific motions with their pitching form, Carrie became more interested in biomechanics and focusing on the differences in the male vs female bodies.  Her experience in working with softball pitchers has not only tested her patience but grown her knowledge in the way the body moves naturally and efficiently.  Increasing body strength and flexibility is the key to softball pitchers success, and I believe it is just as pertinent to the aver women’s body.   Efficiently structured workouts by Carrie will not only help you reach your fitness goals, but will help you manage your personal obligations while taking care of your own health needs.
