Meet Caitlin

Caitlin is a titled Australian Physiotherapy Association Sports and Exercise Physiotherapist and is currently completing her Masters in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy through Latrobe University.  

 

Caitlin works in Private Practice in Brisbane (Australia) and has previously worked as a uniformed Physiotherapist in the Australian Defence Force (Army). Caitlin’s background includes operational experience in Afghanistan, working with a multitude of sporting teams including supporting the inaugural Invictus Games in 2014 and 2018 Commonwealth Games XVIII shooting disciplines in Australia.  Caitlin is passionate about education and ensuring patients can navigate their injury and rehabilitation journey confidently. 

 

Caitlin was first introduced to pole fitness in 2019 after completing a burlesque course, but became hooked after COVID lockdown when she realised she didn’t miss the gym!  

 

In admiring what the students and instructors were able to achieve, Caitlin developed a keen interest in understanding the physical requirements of the sport, not only from a personal development perspective to get the tricks right (with toes pointed…) but also to aid in rehabilitation of pole and aerialists.
