About Carolyn

Aren’t you sick of…

  • Not having the energy you need to juggle the demands of work, family, and kids…all while maintaining a healthy lifestyle?
  • Crash dieting, and subsequently cheating your way back into unhealthy eating?
  • Not having enough time to prepare healthy meals, exercise, and feel (and look) sexier?

My name is Carolyn Banner and I started Body By Banner as an extension of my personal training and nutrition services as a way to help more people streamline a healthy lifestyle without wasting a lot of mental energy (or time).

I am a fitness, nutrition and lifestyle coach, writer, mom and expat living between Buenos Aires and Chicago.

When I am not getting a quick and efficient sweat session I love to be outside as much as possible, travel with my husband, cook and share delicious food with family and friends and simply spend time at home with the fam- my husband, toddler and 2 teenage step kids.

My goal isn’t to “fix” you.

I am here to help you tap into your internal resources and optimize your results.

I will work with you to help align your life with healthy new habits and give you tools and encouragement along the way. But you will be the one doing the daily work and making the changes to feel healthier, more energized, and sexier than ever.

You’ve got this. You are already strong, powerful and capable.

Let me help you step into your power, through my various programs:

  • 1 on 1 personal training
  • Virtual fitness, nutrition and lifestyle coaching (via email, Google docs, WhatsApp, Skype, FaceTime)
  • Individualized workout plans

My core values:

  • To foster loving acceptance, of oneself and the process
  • To be inquisitive, to ask good questions of yourself and others and then pay close attention to the answers
  • To give my best and expect the best of others
  • To share my authentic story and build an active and engaged community
  • To nurture -never enable- others to achieve their best

My credentials:

  • Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist x12 years
  • 200-hr level Yoga Teacher x4 years
  • ISSA certified Personal Trainer x3 years
