Owner of The Fitness Studio Inc.

Growing up on Long Island in NY, Bridget was always a heavy kid. It took her many years to find a healthy balance. She believes in long-term lifestyle change. As a freshman, she joined her high school track team and her love of fitness was born. That same year she started volunteering at the local YMCA and built her career from there. Working in roughly all of the environments in the industry over the last 20 years, she loved the private studio setting the most and opened The Fitness Studio Inc. in 2011. Her desire is still to provide a place where talented, passionate trainers can work together with the support of a team and focus on helping people grow, learn, and change their lives for the better. She believes that fitness is merely the bridge, but the betterment of those around is always the goal.

Caitlin began her personal fitness journey when working as a Zumba instructor at the YMCA. The joy of seeing someone accomplish their fitness goals in a non-judgmental, fun environment, drove the passion to work with individuals one on one. This experience exposed her to the importance of one’s mental skills in the development of their performance. Thus, leading her to pursue a master’s degree in Sport Psychology. Caitlin decided to bring these performance skills to the military and continued to work with the Army as a Mental Performance Coach. After several years of focusing on the mental side she was ready to get back to integrating physical development, leading her to return to training at The Fitness Studio. It is her passion to continue to create a space where individuals are able to grow both mental and physical strength in a fun non-judgmental environment.

Erin found her niche with swimming, leading her to competitively swim for 10 years and playing collegiate water polo at Appalachian State University, while obtaining her BS in Exercise Science. She decided to continue her education earning an associate degree in Therapeutic Massage. It was there that she gained a greater understanding of what it meant to “be healthy.” She realized it was more than “eating right” and working out regularly, but a complex system that requires a variety of modalities. It is her diverse background, both physically and academically, that allows her to create programs and work as a massage therapist, in a manner that not only improves performance, but develops the body.
