"Menopause, it was not a “walk in the park” for me! It was more like traveling down a rocky, winding road in the back of a runaway wagon! For the life of me, I could never figure out how to “embrace it” as many books advised. I had to overcome many struggles through the process, but happily, the road did eventually even out. I got through it and you can too, trust me."

“When I was 9, my body changed. There was trauma in my family life and my dependence upon food as a coping mechanism began. It took me years to realize that I had developed addictive behaviors toward food. It was a reward, but it was also something I used to "punish" myself. The "well, I'm going to be fat anyway" rationale was a common thought. I didn't think it was possible for me to be lean and fit. It took me the whole decade of my 20's to find balance in my lifestyle. The process is slow, but so worth it. I don't have self-destructive habits anymore. I love my body, everyday. Be patient with yourself. Change is possible.”

"When I first came to Caitlin to start training session I was still recovering emotionally from a recent miscarriage and was in the process of going through a series of unsuccessful fertility treatments to try to get pregnant again. I decided it was time for me to take charge of my body again and start getting stronger and feeling what my body was capable of. When I started with Caitlin I was a bit heavier than I was previously and not as strong as I wanted to be. On top of that, I was not feeling great about myself. Through working with her, I was able to push myself physically and mentally to achieve things I never thought I would be able to do. She was encouraging but also compassionate and she fully believed in me. Her knowledge and passion for training intelligently inspired me every session. Within two months I was stronger, leaner and feeling inspired to keep it going. Most importantly, I was feeling in control of my body again. I liked my body again and felt like I was healthier emotionally. I was thrilled to learn I was pregnant again 4 months after starting my work with Caitlin..."
