Carole Carson, dubbed “An Apostle for Fitness” by the Wall Street Journal, is the author of From Fat to Fit: Turn Yourself into a Weapon of Mass Reduction. Just before turning 60, Carole decided to reinvent herself. After chronicling her transformation from butterball to butterfly in weekly newspaper articles, she invited others in her Northern California community to join the fun. Inspired by her example, more than 1,000 ordinary people teamed up to lose nearly 4 tons of fat in two months during the Nevada County Meltdown.
Carole’s multifaceted background includes business leadership, marketing, public relations, event planning, writing, training and consulting to businesses and nonprofits. Her mission is to communicate her empowering message: “You and your friends can have fun, get fit and lose weight!”
Carole writes a featured newspaper column and has appeared on NBC’s Today show, CBS’s Early Show, MSNBC’s Countdown, CNN News and national radio programs. Besides teaching and consulting, Carole has produced a weekly community television show, The Tipping Point, and a reality show, Go Fat to Fit.
The flying was so intense and took so much energy, I had adrenaline coursing through my body long after I touched the ground.
Like many new things in life, it was scary before I jumped in. After that, it was great. I loved it! It was so much fun that my husband, Dick, tried it too--at age 72. And just to prove how much he enjoyed it, when asked if he would do it again, he enthusiastically said, "I think I'll go again at 73," to which I chimed in, "And again at 83."
