Private client

"I started as a private client looking for information and support. Erin was great at providing me with ideas, and encouragement. I then began attending classes regularly, and have noticed a big difference in my strength and stamina. The studio is bright and comfortable, Erin is fun and lighthearted even when she is leading a tough workout! I am so grateful for her and for this studio."

5k Yes I Can! Participant

“I wanted to thank you Erin for the YES I CAN training last year. I took what you taught me, and decided to train this year for my very first half marathon. Never before have I ever considered running that far. Your training and positive reinforcement changed all that for me. I ran my first half marathon in 2 hours and 20 minutes. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole run and I attribute that to you and your training. Thanks again for teaching me that YES I CAN!"
