The Morrow County Community Center’s new fitness instructor Caitlin Trainer promises that “your body will never get bored” with the center’s new strength and circuit class.

The Otterbein University grad taught a Strength and Circuit Class for 14 women in June and July at the Community Center and has extended the class through August and September by popular demand.

Trainer calls it an intermediate class revolving around weight lifting with some cardio and core work. The summer class included women of several fitness levels and Trainer worked with individuals to improve their level of performance.

Several of the women were moms with small children. The Community Center worked with the Mount Gilead Public Library to have a creative playtime for 10 – 12 children while their moms were exercising.

Timberlee Madeker was especially glad to have a place where her two boys could enjoy story time, a craft or activity while she was exercising. She also liked the challenge of Trainer’s exercise class.

“My goal for the participants is to push them beyond what they ever thought they could do, all while having fun,” Trainer said. “I am a true believer in lifting weights. Whether you are male or female, old or young, it can benefit all.”

Caitlin is married to Garrison Trainer and they have a son, Gavin. Caitlin grew up in Pataskala and graduated in 2010 from Otterbein University with a four-year degree in Health Promotion and Fitness. She became an American College of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer.

Strength and Circuit class runs through August and September on Monday and Wednesday at 5:30 a.m. and on Tuesday and Thursday at 3:15 p.m.

You can enroll with the class and get more information by emailing Caitlin.Trainer7@gmail.com or call the Community Center at 16 S. Main St., Mount Gilead, 419-947-2100.
