Carmen Getsome had no skating experience at all before finding roller derby in 2006. Once she saw her first bout there was no turning back. She skated hard 5 days a week and earned a spot on the Rat City Rollergirls.
Within a year she was skating on the Rat City Allstars team and working hard to become a primary jammer on the team. Carmen has been selected by her leaguemates as MVP in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
Carmen has been in personal training and fitness industry since 2004 when she graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science. She loves taking the knowledge she has gained over the years regarding body mechanics and applying it to derby! She works with individuals, teams, leagues and regions to help them improve their derby skill, knowledge and strategy. Join Carmen Getsome and her team of rad-tastic coaches at a clinic or training camp near you!! Perhaps your next trip will be a Derby Vacation with Getsome Athletics!
