Exercise Specialist & Owner
David has worked as an Exercise Specialist at The Med Gym since its inception in 2014, and has helped people of all ages move better, feel better, live better, and perform better.

During that time, he helped design off-season and in-season training programs for the DeSales University baseball team, as well as interning with the strength & conditioning coaches at Lehigh University to work with varsity athletes at Lehigh. Since college David has spent time working in the Physical Therapy setting prior to his time as one of the Exercise Specialists at The Carlisle MedGym.
In 2021, David partnered with Brian Cardin and Steve Miller (owners of Cardin & Miller Physical Therapy and The Med Gym) to become part-owner of The Med Gym.

Kade graduated in 2022 from DeSales University with a Bachelor's degree in Sport and Exercise Physiology and a minor in Psychology. He is originally from Red Lion but moved here to Carlisle to start his first job out of college.
Kade's love for training began with his own training for sports, which culminated as a college soccer player at DeSales University.
Throughout his college education, he developed both his love for training in the gym and his passion for helping people improve their overall function. During college, he began working with adults with disabilities as a social worker at Kaleidoscope. Through that experience, he developed a greater appreciation for the importance of helping people live and function better.
In addition to his work with Kaleidoscope, Kade also gained experience working in an internship at Lehigh Valley Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation. There, he had the opportunity to assist individuals with their workout programs to improve their overall health. As part of that internship, he gained experience in cardiovascular and pulmonary health. He had the opportunity to read EKGs, take blood pressures, and set up clients with electrodes for monitoring.
Kade's other internship experience was with an occupational therapy clinic specializing in hand therapy. There, he learned about different occupational therapy techniques for the hand.
Kade is excited to put his education and experience into practice by helping clients at The Med Gym move better and accomplish their goals!

Caitlin Patane is a Carlisle native. She obtained an Associate of Arts degree from Harrisburg Area Community College in 2011. She then decided to take a break in her education before finishing her bachelor’s degree at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania, where she graduated in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Exercise Science with a concentration in Sport and Exercise Conditioning. Being active and feeling fit has always been an integral part of her life and she aspired to help others in a knowledgeable and safe way.
Caitlin worked as a manager of a gym in Stroudsburg for over 3 years; however, she was not feeling fulfilled in her career and felt she could be doing something more. A unique, challenging, and unrelated career opportunity presented itself in 2019 when she started working for C.F. Martin and Co., one of the oldest, most highly respected acoustic guitar manufacturers in the world. She truly enjoyed her time and experience there; however, she decided to get back to her roots and degree by moving back to her beloved hometown of Carlisle in 2022.
Caitlin is very excited to be working alongside people and making a difference in their physical health and wellness. The Med Gym provides the kind of positive and uplifting work atmosphere that she has always wanted.
Caitlin is Level 1 Certified in the Functional Movement Screen.
