“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!"
" You let me find my way without pushing your own agenda or buying into fads...You were very understanding and empathetic to my situation and frame of mind. You did not judge or find blame, just offered suggestions and some clarity."
"Professional, attentive, fun, kind and caring."
"Erin is a great fitness trainer. She keeps the program varied, fun and geared to my specific issues. She is bright, spirited and dedicated to her profession. I highly recommend her."
