"Even though exercise can be a 'chore,' I'm here to make it fun and comfortable while giving people confidence."
Carter Bushway, CPT, has channeled his passion for exercise into everything he does. He seeks to be a resource both in and out of the gym for his clients and tries to get to know them and getter a better perspective on what they are working towards.
Originally interested in athletic training, Carter realized he wanted to work with all types of people, not just athletes. Now, giving people confidence and making them comfortable in an uncomfortable environment is his specialty. He writes personalized fitness programs for each client so that they can achieve their own Optimal Health goals their own way and at their own pace. Carter is also the instructor for all Forever Fit classes at Greenwich, and enjoys creating fun and functional exercise routines for those who want to keep their bodies moving as the years go on.
At Ithaca College, Carter worked with gymnasts, football players and women’s lacrosse athletes while working on a research project that examined college endurance athletes. His research team looked at which running modality — ground, treadmill or non-motorized treadmill — for training was better, a study he is currently working to get published.
Carter has a passion for basketball, balance and stability training, group fitness classes and working with older adults. On the side, he likes to cook, write poetry, go kayaking and play fetch with his dog.
