Fitness Master Trainer Carmel Rodriguez is the founder and creator of the YG12 & YG20 series. Her knack for perfecting acrobat-level handstands and inversions earned her a spot as one of Instagram’s Top 10 New Female Fitness Gurus (New York Observer). Carmel believes that every outrageous move is achievable with sheer will and consistency. As she says, "at some point you just have to stop thinking about it and do it”.
This mother of two is a personal trainer, fitness model, actor and entrepreneur. She has been involved in fitness for over 20 years and has used it to heal and grow. “After having kids and facing some traumatic events in my life, I developed severe anxiety and depression," Carmel says. "Without knowing what else to do, I turned to movement. When I challenged my body, it challenged my mind and that enabled me to overcome my depression." Carmel believes hard work, dedication and consistency will get you to your dream, whatever it might be. Her way starts with fitness.
