I have worked with Caroline for 8 years. She is an inspiration to me as a fellow instructor but, most of all, to her students. She enriches the lives of others with her passion for health and fitness. Age should not limit us in how we incorporate fitness into our daily lives and Caroline reinforces this as positive proof. She is a living, positive example that a person can live a healthy, happy life at any age.
I've known Caroline Anaya for six years through my employment as a Fitness Desk Monitor and subsequent fellow instructor at Sun City Anthem in Henderson, NV. I find Caroline to be a superb instructor, as well as a very caring, energetic and enthusiastic person. She exudes professionalism in all that she does and is a model and mentor to other instructors. I am honored to know Caroline Anaya.

No one knows more about being fit than a dancer. Having danced professionally and directed and owned a private dance school for most all of my life, I know that exercise is crucial it keeps the dancer's most valuable asset the body at its top condition. Since retiring two years ago, I met Caroline. She has been an inspiration to me and has kept me in better tip-top tip-toe shape than I could ever imagine. Caroline's professionalism, dedication and total commitment to her students is amazing.
She never falters. Caroline balances the get fit, get busy and get down to business exercise techniques with a smile and a great deal of humor. A class with her is truly awesome. I trust her with my body 100%.

The legs of an 18 year old, the stamina of a stevedore, the heart of a lion, and a mind like a steel trap. I want to be just like her when I grow up.

I never had good balance, and could never do anything physical. Now I can for the first time in my life. Thank you, Caroline, for your encouragement.

I exercise 4 days a week in Caroline's classes. It has changed my health, my body and my attitude. She is my hero.

Caroline's Yoga class is a great stretch. Keeps me loose; keeps me agile. It's the perfect cross-training for biking and table tennis. Everyone should get a really good stretch regularly. At 80 years of age, I am pain free, and that's saying something!

In particular, my side-to-side movements improved greatly once I joined Caroline's aerobics class. I am winning tennis tournaments now.

Since exercising in Caroline's sitting class, I have regained the use of my right shoulder and arm. Now I can reach a cup off the top shelf in my kitchen.

I'm here to tell you that it's never too late to start exercising.
I joined Caroline's sitting class when I was 97. At 102 I fractured my hip, and the doctors were amazed how quickly I recovered. At 104, I'm here to tell you that exercise will keep you strong, and it's great fun.

I was depressed after the stroke paralyzed my left side 12 years ago. I joined Caroline's SBF class 8 yrs ago, and now at age 77 I am amazed at the strength and range of motion I have gained. The support and encouragement of my class-mates has been wonderful.

Aerobics is my favorite, and I've been doing it for 3 years. It sure paid off when I had my heart attack 6 months ago. The doctors were amazed at how quickly I came back.
~ HE, Henderson, NV
I am 93 years old and I still walk the track, ride the bike and swim every day.
But the best exercise is our sitting class. That's where I have met lots of friends.
