Optimum Performance Personal Training, now Carol A. Witham Advanced Health and Fitness 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 the community includes 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 provide exercises classes. On Monday at 3:00pm is T'ai Chi for women. I have over 25 years experience teaching T'ai Chi. On Wednesday at 10:00am is Senior T’ai Chi.
On Fridays at 10:00am at Quarry Hill Retirement Center, is the class specifically for people who have Parkinson's Disease. This class was designed by Carol about 7 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 are being offered two days a week. I am only one of two people fully certified as an Essentrics insturctor in the United States.
