Shout out to GENA AND DAMON HALL.
GENA HAS REACHED HER GOAL OF LOOSING 100 POUNDS! YOU GO GIRL!
Gena and her husband are committed to CWC and workout at CWC nearly every day.
After long hours of working, they come to the gym to workout their bodies and minds.
Gena, you are such an inspiration to me!!
Thanks CWC and employees for being here for all of us!!
Everyone here is so helpful and motivating! Thank you for the positive atmosphere!

This place is where our whole family likes to go for family time and friend time!
Kurt and Michaela, thank you for all you do! Your team's customer service is AWESOME!
Carrie, we just saw your Cancer Support Group on Facebook.
THIS. IS. AWESOME! God Bless All of YOU!!!
This is my happy place!
The Wellness Center is one of the best things that has happened to this area. The benefits they provide are beyond awesome. I have supported the facility from the first time the doors were opened. The staff is beyond excellent and their professionalism is beyond perfection. Thank you all for all you do to keep the community healthy!
Kurt on his "Off Day"
Way to go Vivian McBride on swimming 1,400 miles here at the Carroll Wellness Center! You are such an inspiration!
Left the gym after talking to a friend about VT Football - Passed people who were laughing with each other while exiting the Group Exercise class - Saw a Trainer smiling in the Concession area while sitting and chatting with a Senior client - And was told to have a 'Great Day' by the employee at the front desk on my way out. This place is SO MUCH more than just exercise.
Why I can't workout at home.
If we can use this Board to give a "shout out" to members, then I'd like to give one to Seth! Seth, what you have done is absolutely amazing, and you have inspired more people than you possibly know! (From a fellow member who SO MUCH admires you and your work ethic!)
Would like to thank Keith for bringing his positive energy each day, and I'd also like to thank him for his service!
My gym time is my me time that I look forward to each workout day! The staff is awesome, too!
This center is a gem in our area! There is nowhere else that has this many ammenities in one business. My kids can swim or shoot hoops while I work out! This is so much more than a gym and I'm so glad it is here for our family!
Making this available to everyone says a whole lot about the type of leaders we have at CWC! THANK YOU Kurt and Michaela for making this available! It's AWESOME!
Friday Fun Day with Bonnie at the Front Desk!
Love my CWC Peeps!!!
Thank you to Carrie who has helped so much with each question we've had! You explain things to us, so well, and take care of so many clients with compassion! Thanks for all you do for us!
Who has the brighter smile- Teresa Richardson or Jenny Dowdy? Both are beautiful examples of positivity who are wonderful assets to CWC! They make you feel you matter! Keep smiling, ladies! ❤️
Everyone here is amazing! From the day I started the cross training group became like family and helped me become the person I am today. Especially Bo, Ashley, and Travis!
When I think of CWC, I remember Randall Gravley with gratitude! Randall had the vision for this wellness center(complete with a pool) for his beloved community! Working tirelessly for several years, along with numerous organizations ,community leaders, and many Carroll Countians, his vision finally became reality. Randall Gravley was a true blessing to this community and CWC!
I don't think I've ever walked into CWC when Teresa wasn't smiling and happy! She makes the front desk shine! THANK YOU, Teresa!!!
Kurt and Tommy getting ready for leg day
A big shout-out to Barry Hicks for taking care of CWC inside and out since it all started! THANK YOU, Barry!!!
Tommy - thanks for your positive energy. You make everyone around you better just because of who you are and how you treat everyone! You are appreciated more than you know!
Incredible facility. Great Staff. Positive, friendly environment. We've been members since CWC opened in 2004, and it's still the highlight of our day! Thank you to the Board, the staff, and the community for making this such a special place!
The Carroll Wellness Center is one of the best places to go when you want to become your best self, judgment-free. The staff makes you feel like family or a close friend as soon as you walk through the door. An amazing gym and amazing people.
The Carroll Wellness Center truly is a blessing to the Hillsville community. It has so much to offer, and to this day remains one of the highlights of my daily routine!
I love coming to the gym every single day, because of the amazing interactions that I get to have with so many of my gym buddies!
The staff at the Carroll Wellness Center are by far some of the most genuine people I have ever come in counter with. They really take the time to focus on you, and help you achieve the goals you have set out for yourself!

(Great tech assignment for students!)
Website Embed Feature
This feature provides your Tech Team with a simple line of code that would allow you to embed your Rotating Display of Positive Messages into your school website, so that visitors can instantly see your messages.
Social Media Share Feature
This feature places Social Media Share Buttons on your entire Kindness e-Wall webpage or just on your Rotating Display only – whichever you prefer.
Yes! There are no Sign-Ups and no Log-Ins required in order to participate, as we collect no data or information of any kind. The platform is currently being used by large and small school systems throughout the country in almost all 50 states, and it has passed 100% of all school privacy regulations to date.
Yes! Many of our schools do this, because if your students take to it – then the messages can begin to overflow your school email inbox at times. Not only will a separate gmail account prevent this from happening, but you can also make it accessible to all faculty members if you choose to.
You can either cast your Kindness Wall link from any internet device to any TV monitor via a chromecast or Apple TV device, or you can place your Kindness Wall link into the browser of any Smart TV that displays the internet browser. After doing either of these, then you can simply click the FULL SCREEN MODE button on your Kindness Wall, and your Rotating Display of Approved Messages will scroll non-stop and will update itself with newly Approved messages every 10 minutes.
Yes! You can edit the text of any message before Approving it. In addition, if you’d like to keep a message but would like to remove an included image… or if you’d like to keep an image and remove the text, then you can do this before Approving the message. Your Rotating Display will only display exactly what you choose to make visible.
If you still have the original email that the message came in on, then you can return to that email and access the Approval Page for that message and click the Delete button. This will override your initial Approval.
If you do not still have the original email that the message came in on, then just copy/paste the message to us, and we can jump in the back office and remove it for you – no problem!
We can provide your Tech Team with a simple line of code that will allow them to embed your Rotating Display of Approved Messages onto your school website, so that they are visibly scrolling whenever anyone comes to your site.
The schools with the highest participation are those that provide their students with 5-10 minutes a week (during Homeroom, Character Education type classes, or classroom downtime) to use the Platform to submit positive messages about one another. They will then display their Rotating Display of Approved messages via classroom Smart Boards during Homeroom or will have a TV monitor in their cafeteria or commons area where all of their Approved Messages are scrolling all day long for everyone to enjoy.
The system is set to display the 100 most recently Approved messages, as older messages start falling out of the rotation in order to make room for the newer messages. However, we can increase or decrease this number to be whatever you’d like it to be.
Yes and No. Your Kindness Wall is a web app, but it is not located in an App store. However, this link shows you how you can easily turn your Kindness Wall into an app for any android or apple device: Phone Web App Instructions
