Mountain athlete opens valley training center
Ripple Effect, an athlete training center located on Main Street in Carbondale, has opened its doors.
Carolyn Parker, Ripple Effect’s founder, relocated her business from Albuquerque, New Mexico. She is a Gym Jones-certified trainer, professional climber, mountain-bike racer, skier and sponsored athlete with a 25-year resume of sculpting athletes into more powerful competitors, the center said in a statement.
Parker and her trainers at Ripple Effect, all of whom are professional mountain athletes, focus on outcome-based, sport-specific training for committed individuals, the statement said.
“If your main goal is to fit into your skinny jeans, this is not the place for you. If you want to crush the Grand Traverse, take 20 minutes off your marathon time, climb two grades harder or reprogram your life after an injury or illness, we will make it happen,” the company said.
Ripple Effect is now accepting motivated athletes for private training sessions, small-group workouts and individualized programming.
An open house will be held at the facility, located at 580 Main St., Suite 110, on Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

There is a lot of pent up energy among hikers and bikers to get into the high country, but snow fields, avalanche debris and high stream crossings are presenting challenges later than usual. Forest rangers with the Aspen-Sopris District provide trail condition reports that are updated each week so hikers and backpackers aren’t caught unaware.
