She works full time as a business owner at Garage Strength Sports Performance with husband, Dane Miller. Caitlin's main responsibilities include managing client accounts, business accounting, personal training, and other miscellaneous tasks involved in running a small business. You can find her at Earth Fed Muscle doing website maintenance, and various social media posting and marketing.
EFM: What does your current training look like?
Caitlin: I played D1 field hockey in college, and training has always been an important part of my life. As a busy mom I can’t always find time to train, but I try to fit in a workout 3-4 times per week. Occasionally I have the luxury of a longer 1.5-2 hour lift, but usually it’s more like 45 minutes to an hour. My training includes mostly olympic movements; snatch, clean, jerk, squat, ect. Currently, I lift at 5:30 am twice a week while Dane, gets the kids ready for the day. Any other workouts during the week will have varying days and times.
EFM: What type of Earth Fed Muscle supplements are a part of your daily routine?
Caitlin: Earth Fed Muscle supplements help me stay fueled and recovered on a daily basis. On days that I train I drink a protein shake post workout. Vanilla and Strawberry Primitive Protein are my two favorites (or a half scoop of each). I take the Essentials Multivitamin as a prenatal supplement. I take ZMA every night with additional magnesium for a restful sleep. Sleep can be difficult during pregnancy, and ZMA has been a total lifesaver. In the past, I have taken creatine and I love that I don’t get beat down during a tough training cycle. I am not consuming much caffeine during pregnancy so I stay away from coffee and preworkout, but they will return to my routine postpartum. GelatinPro is a house favorite for making gummy candies. I wish I took gelatin every day, but I find it difficult to keep up with on a regular basis. If only Earth Fed Muscle made a collagen supplement, then it would be added to the daily supplement list?!?? Finally, my kids request Earth Fed Muscle pancakes or waffles every day! This is a regular breakfast in our house because I truly trust Earth Fed Muscle products as a healthy option for myself and for my family.
