Carla Webster-Reid – Fitness Director Healthworks Community Fitness Center, Boston
Carla is the fitness director at a community gym in Boston.
She found purpose when she started exercising to become healthier, and now tries to help the women in her gym find that same motivation.
“My purpose is to tell women here you can do anything at any size, because I didn’t become a fitness director by being a woman who wears size 10. I’m a full-figure woman. I’m not going to tell you, you can’t do that unless you lose 20 pounds.
I’m telling you to do it right now while you have the 20 pounds on you. Life is a journey of being fit. It’s all about being healthy. You can be 200 pounds and be healthy, if you’re eating the right things, you’re doing the right things, you’re going about life the right way and having a positive outlook.”
“To make sure women are capable of knowing what they can do, and knowing that they can do it. What’s my job on this earth? To bring out the beauty in people.”
