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 has worked at the Med Gym for over a year now and has made some wonderful connections with her clients. She feels that she helped many people on their fitness journey move closer to their goals. She also became certified in the Functional Movement Screen, Level 1, which has helped her to better assess her clients and create effective and individualized programs for each one of them. While Caitlin enjoys her time at the Med Gym, she is taking a temporary leave of absence towards the end of May to have her first child - a baby girl! She is very excited about this new and exciting life event. However, she will be looking forward to getting back to training clients in the future. She hopes all of her clients stick with their training in her absence and continue to make progress toward their health and fitness goals!
