Carmen Gaines

Carmen Gaines

Carmen is an entrepreneur, group fitness instructor, NPC Bikini Body Building Competitor, and the mind and heart behind the Women’s Liberation Workshop (WLW), an interactive wellness experience that addresses the need for community-based fitness and life empowerment for women and young girls. With a background in Women and Family Studies, Carmen learned first-hand about the intersectional oppressions of racism, classism, and sexism that most women experience. She decided to use her fitness platform to create a place for women to connect, exchange information, share their stories, grow financially, and lean into relationships to become healthier in all areas of life. WLW features a choreographed dance session focused on femininity, an R&B yoga session aimed toward spiritual and physical wellness, a financial freedom session to educate women on managing their money, and a marketplace to showcase female entrepreneurs.
