GET to Know – Caitlyn Drumm

CaitlynHow did I GET into this? I started GET about 7 months ago after our neighbor introduced Mike and I to Matt and Casey. It was growing harder to stay self-motivated and get to the gym every day, so we decided to try out small-group fitness with a range of training. We had no idea how much we would love the small-group approach!

You might not know…that I was in an all-female A Cappella group, while attending SUNY Albany, called Serendipity, and I rowed crew all four years of high school as well as after college for the Albany Rowing Center.

Where am I from? I was born in Baldwinsville, a suburb outside of Syracuse, NY where most of my family still lives. I have one older brother who resides in Buffalo, NY. As of now, I love the Capital District/Adirondacks region and plan to be here for a while!

What do I do for fun? Hmm…Cooking, baking, drinking wine, watching movies, and hanging out with our dog just about sums it up!

My Favorite Exercise…I just can’t get enough sled pushes! I used to dread them when I’d see the orange cones set up in the parking lot, but I have grown to love them.

My favorite thing about GET…is the strong sense of family that surrounds it. A family that pushes each other to reach their highest potential every day. The dedication of Matt, Casey, and the whole GET team is something that I admire and that keeps me coming back!
