I'm Carmen Skildum! Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Group Exercise instructor through the Athletics and Fitness Association of America.
Based in Grand Marais, MN, mom of 3, weight lifter, and runner.
I began training clients in 2018, and have grown from there with a variety of fitness classes and 1:1 training.
Personally, I didn't run my first mile til the age of 23, and didn't pick up a weight til the age of 26. Fitness changed every aspect of my life, and made me the person I am today. Decided to become certified as personal trainer when at age 27 and will never look back.
Started out training clients solely as 1:1 personal training in 2018 while pregnant with my first daughter, Lane. Basically took over our single car garage, converting into a preeeeetty tight quartered little gym. But it did the job!
As some time went on, I began experimenting with small group classes. Eventually this led to some classes outside of my gym, including in Tofte MN, as well as Brewery Boot Camps and more. In the summer of 2020 my husband Chris, began the process of expanding our little gym to provide a better variety of classes as well as meet the demand of participants. I love my gym!
My clients are absolutely amazing and have sparked a passion in me that I never knew existed. Thanks to you all!
