Hi. I’m Carrie Armacost, the owner of CareFit Studio.
I help health-conscious adults meet their lifestyle goals through comprehensive, personalized fitness planning and purposeful exercise. Although I’ve been working in the fitness industry for 10 years and have completed 18 marathons - including nine consecutive Boston Marathon finishes - as well as multiple triathlons and half-marathons, my fitness journey has been far from easy. In high school, I was an accomplished athlete, lettering in field hockey, basketball and golf. Although I continued to play field hockey in college, I put on a bit more than the Freshman Fifteen.
I gained 35 pounds, lost my confidence and motivation, and actually quit working out.
But the more I sat around, the worse I felt. I knew I had to turn things around - and not just for the sake of my physical appearance, but for my mental health as well.
I joined a running group and exercised more often, but I started to notice that my fellow runners often suffered from overuse injuries. Ultimately, I even blew out my ankle and had to take a break.
During this injury induced downtime, I began researching health and realized there was much more to working out than just working out. Fitness, I discovered, is a complete package, involving proper nutrition, consistent but varied exercise, and purposeful goal setting.
As I incorporated these learnings into my daily routine, my transformation back to a healthy physical and mental lifestyle sped up rapidly - and the great part was that it didn’t take over my busy life. I started to see that my story could help others pursue their own transformations - so I began working one-on-one with clients to achieve their fitness goals and ultimately opened CareFit Studio.
From my experience, I’ve learned that there are no shortcuts - fitness requires dedication and proper planning. Everyone’s journey is different.
Now, I want to help you define the WHY behind your workout so you can become healthier, physically and mentally, all without uprooting your busy life.
Carrie gave me an 18 week plan with daily running/workout assignments. Believe it or not, the training was almost easy. It was not hard at all to fit it into my daily routine as a busy mom. The build-up was so gradual that when I got up to the really long runs, my body was ready for them. I was truly prepared. The coaching included nutritional advice and weekly consultations which helped tremendously. On Nov. 6, I ran my first marathon! I completed the 26.2 miles in good time and even felt decent afterwards.
