More about Trainer Kaitlin

Years ago, Kaitlin suffered from intense anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and a severe and debilitating seizure disorder. Her muscles were wasted as she spent much of her time in bed. Doctors tried to treat the seizures with more and more medication with no avail. As time passed, they learned that they were stress induced and she slowly learned to manage them, but not eliminate them. Fast forward to her meeting her husband and becoming pregnant! She wanted nothing more in the world than to be the best role model for her daughter Tidyn, so she took up a healthy lifestyle. The seizures have disappeared, and she feels mentally and physically positive and healthy. She quickly fell in love with all types of training and studied to become a trainer. Her favorite way to train is with the battle ropes! Follow her on Instagram (@trainerkaitlin)
