About Coach Carmen

Meet the founder

From athlete to coach…

Coach Carmen began her competitive race walking career in 1986 when she was told by doctors to pursue a low impact sport. She was a member of the 2015 and 2016 US Womens 50k Race Walk team, and served as President of a USA Track and Field Race Walk club for over ten years. Coach Carmen is a Safe Sport, USATF level 1 certified coach. Her athletes have ranged from 6 to 86 years of age with goals of training for fitness, the Olympic Trials and everything in between.

…to entrepreneur

Throughout her journey, Coach Carmen saw a need for better footwear and decided to pursue product creation. She designed and created a new midsole geared to performance and support. Coach Carmen has refined her original concept to include a shoe for fitness and casual walkers, launching Reshod Walking Shoes in 2008. She holds three US utility patents and two international utility patents.
