I’m Erin… I work for Diet Tools, I personal train from my home and at our local YMCA (a few hours a week), and I teach Boot Camps at local elementary schools for teachers.
I love my life… my husband, Chad owns his own business and works from home most of the time. We’ve struggled to get our businesses going, but it’s all been worth it. Chad and I both work from home most of the time, so we get to spend most of our days together. We get to share parenting responsibilities and work around the house. We’ve been married almost 14 years. Chad is my best friend, and I’m grateful to be able to spend my life with him.
We have 4 kids– Brooke 12, Mikey 10, Andrew 7, and Kate 4. We wish we could freeze our kids at these ages. This is THE GREATEST time in my life, I’m trying to soak up and enjoy EVERY moment of our precious kids’ childhoods. I’m trying to be the best mom I can possibly be. I mess up plenty of the times, and my kids are very good at letting me know when I do My biggest goal in life is to raise kind, confident, responsible children, who know they are LOVED and cherished.
I’ve always loved friends. I’m an introvert so I’m not always super comfortable in crowds or even with more than 3 people in the room. But, I absolutely LOVE one on one time with anyone, getting to know their hearts, what they think, and how they feel. I love to talk and listen and get to know people one on one (this is why I love to personal train).
I wanted to be a personal trainer my entire life. I just knew I would love it. As an 11 year old kid I loved to workout. I’d get anyone and everyone I could to come to my house and we’d have a workout party in my backyard watching my mom’s Jane Fonda tapes. Fitness has been a lifelong passion for me. I love training people and helping them hit their goals. I especially appreciate the friendships I’ve made through personal training.
I’ve been running since I was a little girl. My dad is a runner; he is FAST! I ran with my Dad most of my childhood. I LOVE running with my Dad. Spending time with my Dad running, especially as a teenager, gave me such a special bond with him. Now I try to run with Chad and my kids anytime I can get them to go with me.
My Mom is a swimmer. She gave me the confidence I needed to try out for the swim team when I was in 8th grade. This was where I met some of my best friends, and had the greatest Coach anyone could ever imagine. I love to swim, I hate getting in the water, but I LOVE to swim once I get myself in the water.
I own a business called Fit Girls Fusion. I teach boot camps for elementary school teachers. I show up at their schools when school is finished for the day and we workout. Their workout buddies are their fellow teachers, and we have a great time working out after long day of teaching all of the kiddos. I LOVE these ladies, they work so hard.
I have a full busy life, that I absolutely love. Follow my blog, as we talk about fitness, diet, and everyday life!
