Manager & Strength Coach
Carey started as a fitness professional in 2017 at North Carolina State University, initially as a Strength & Conditioning Assistant. By 2018, she transitioned to become a NASM-certified personal trainer. Armed with her Bachelor's degree in Applied Nutrition and Sports Science, and driven by a deep understanding of biomechanics and movement, Carey sought further holistic expertise.
This led her to become a Licensed Massage Therapist and establish Molder & Forge, her own massage practice in 2020. This unique combination allows her to approach rehabilitation proactively, addressing underlying issues through techniques like Trigger Point Therapy and posture rehabilitation. Carey excels at taking a comprehensive approach to pain management. By actively listening to clients describe their issues, she tailors personalized training and myofascial therapy plans to address the root cause and progressively reduce pain over time.
Beyond her qualifications, Carey's personal transformation speaks volumes. In 2015, she achieved a remarkable 80-pound weight loss, followed by a 25-pound muscle gain over two and a half years. This experience ignited a passion for body recomposition and pain management through strength-based training. With her combined background in athletics, nutrition, and firsthand experience navigating both fat loss and muscle gain, Carey brings a unique perspective to coaching. Her mission is to create a comfortable and empowering gym environment, fostering self-confidence and inspiring clients to conquer their fitness goals even beyond the gym walls.
