Carin Van OlstCarin Van Olst is a fitness trainer and coach motivated by passion for over 25 years of expertise. She has helped people of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities transform their bodies, minds, and spirits. As Carin says, "The better you feel about yourself, the better you see the world and vice versa.

"I love to watch my students' bodies change and to see them unfold in that story of self-confidence."

Wholly committed to her students and clients, Carin is compassionate but hardcore, inspirational but tough - just the coach you need to get the results you desire. Her training techniques and group fitness classes are innovative, challenging, and most of all - effective.

Born in a small town in Holland, Carin moved to New York City in 1986 and found her calling: she fell in love with the vibe, the people, and the commitment to health and fitness at her local gym. One day when an instructor failed to show, she taught the class and has been inspiring people to reach their physical potential ever since.

In Santa Fe, where she has lived since 1992, she has taught at El Gancho, Club International, and La Posada, as well as many private gyms. She currently teaches at the Santa Fe Spa, where her classes include boot camp and interval training. She also trains private clients, private spinning, and expertly adapts each workout to suit an individual's unique needs, no matter their level or physical limitations. She is well known for her slogans: Talk yourself into it! Work as hard as you can when you can because you can! If you don't like me my name is Helga!
