Carly is the owner and founder of Zen Fitness. A certified personal trainer for many years, he took his lifelong passion for fitness and nutrition to the next level when he opened Zen Fitness, an avant-garde personal training studio designed to capitalize on the synergistic effects of weight training, cardio, and nutrition. Much of Carly's success with his clients is attributable to his unique ability to connect with his clients, understanding both their physical and mental strengths and weaknesses. He uses this knowledge to motivate, encourage and push his clients to become the best they can be. A Gainesville, Florida native and college scholarship athlete, in addition to his university business studies, Carly devoted years to the study of nutrition culminating in his belief in the whole foods, plant based diet as the most effective and expeditious way to obtain optimal health. After witnessing the success of the plant based diet coupled with an exercise regimen as capable of remarkably and rapidly improving the health of his clients time and time again, he embarked on a quest to share his knowledge on a grander scale, and the idea for his documentary movie "Unsupersize Me" was born. "Unsupersize Me" is a true and inspiring story about overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Carly embarks on a journey with Tracy Ryan, a woman who had been morbidly obese her entire life, guiding her from poor health to a new life, one she could have never envisioned. She experiences an amazing transformation losing 200 pounds in a single year! Tracy, once entrapped by her own unhealthy body, escapes her imprisonment and ultimately regains her life. Tracy metamorphoses from a 345 lb. inactive woman burdened by her weight to a healthy, active woman climbing mountains and running half marathons, a woman living life to its fullest. An integral component of the success of Tracy Ryan and many of Carly's clients is the incorporation of Red Ace, an organic beet juice supplement, into their nutrition regimen. Red Ace enhances cardio performance and boosts athletic abilities, a fundamental aid for developing and maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle. Carly was the visionary for Red Ace and is a principal owner of the company which he founded.
