Try Fitness was founded in 1996 by KC Carlberg, MPG, in an effort to support women's health and fitness in Hawaii. Try Fitness' mission is to strive to teach women the benefits of fitness as a part of a healthy lifestle and as a means of improving their quality of life. We motivate women and help them realize their physical, emotional and spiritual potential.

After 18 years, KC Carlberg would like to expand the vision of Try Fitness and create a greater level of advocacy for all women. In order to see this vision, Try Fitness is taking on community partners - organizations who have a similar commitment and mission to support and enhance the health of women in Hawaii.

Our partnerships will help us build stronger relationships with the community and expand our support system, giving us more access to community resources. Collaboration brings diversity, which is especially important for developing a well-rouded vision that relies on varying cultural or religious perspectives. These will be reciprocal relationships that will help expand our reach into the community, thereby giving us a greater ability to affect more lives.

We would like to welcome our two new partners.

Planned Parenthood of Hawaii

Both Try Fitness and Planned Parenthood are all about women's health and promoting a greater quality of life for the women of Hawaii. Since its beginning 14 years ago, the Na Wahine Festival has been held in September, Women's Health Month. A portion of the proceeds from our fabulous event will go to support Planned Parenthood's continuing effort of serving the women of Hawaii.

Girls on the Run

Like Try Fitness, their mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. They envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldy pursue her dreams.

Try Fitness will continue its work with the support of its community partners so that all women and girls everywhere have a voice and have the confidence and strength to live a fulfilling a happy life.
