“ Growing up as an over weight girl I developed a low self esteem,” says Carmen Puyo. “As an adult I learned the importance of wellness and now I feel that it is my duty to spread the word. I can help girls and women feel good about who they are.” she says.

The Fitness Guru

Carmen Puyo began her  career as a group fitness instructor 13 years ago. She has been an instructor and personal trainer the past ten years and a Group Exercise Manager for the past seven years, overseeing two Bally Total Fitness clubs in Toronto (currently Extreme Fitness).

In 1998, Carmen was awarded “Instructor of the Year” and in 2003 she was awarded “Group Exercise Manager of the Year”. In May of 2007, in an effort to help women achieve self-acceptance and strength, she co-created, “Burst Female empowerment through movement” and introduced it to the Toronto market.  Burst! has been featured on Breakfast Television and in Eye Weekly Magazine. What she teaches is more than moving your body sensually. It is about finding yourself and building your confidence!

“Sexy is not a look. It’s an attitude”

Carmen believes that being sexy has very little to do with your physical appearance, but is more about an attitude and vibe that you exude – If you feel sexy, you are sexy. In an effort to help women achieve self acceptance and strength she created Cardio Erotica aka “Cardio Strip tease”.
