Caroline Girvan was born in 1984 and hails from Northern Ireland.

Her inspiration-

After Caroline became a mother, she realised that there was an information overload in fitness.

And thanks to this, her family members and friends were following a variety of diets, training and even after working hard and spending much time and money, they weren’t succeeding.

Most of them were focusing on the wrong things and this moved Caroline and inspired her to become a personal trainer.

Entering YouTube-

Caroline wasn’t able to personally train her clients during the COVID-19 lockdown.

So, she recorded a couple of simple home workouts with her iPhone teaching how to train with a pair of dumbbells and body weight and shared them with her clients on WhatsApp.

One woman requested Caroline to upload her workouts onto YouTube, so that she could watch them on her TV.

So, on 5 April 2020, she published her first video on her eponymous YouTube channel titled ‘AT HOME CORE 6 MINUTE ABS WORKOUT | Follow Along’.

Even though she originally started her YouTube channel on 26 October 2015, she started working on it only from April 2020.

As people started appreciating Caroline’s videos, she began to continuously work on her channel.

Her workouts are very popular on YouTube and are viewed by hundreds of thousands of people.

Starting small & becoming successful-

Initially, Caroline used to record her YouTube videos with her iPhone by placing it on a window ledge.

Eventually, she upgraded by purchasing a camera and a mic.

Caroline herself records her workout videos by placing her camera on the fireplace in her front living room.

Her husband helps her to manage her business and she has a small team consisting of a video editor to help her out.

As of November 2023, Caroline has 2.69M subscribers on her YouTube channel, 636K followers on Instagram and 202K followers on her Facebook page.

She earns from advertisements on her YouTube videos and affiliate marketing.

She created the EPIC workout programs; and has a website.
