I tried Ericka’s kettlebell class on a whim several years ago, and have been hooked ever since. Ericka’s creative training plans make every class exciting and challenging. Her attention to each individuals’ needs never wavers: just this morning Ericka helped me fine tune my goblet squat and I was able to find strength and ability I didn’t know I had. Ericka provides support, challenge, respect and a terrific sense of humor (oh and the best music!) – a combo that makes it easy to wake up at the crack of dawn several times a week to get my kettlebell fix!

I compete in canine agility, and the work I do in my EDK Training classes has translated to faster sprints, more endurance and improved footwork on course. Heartfelt thanks to Ericka for all of your hard work and support! I am so fortunate to be able to train with you and my fellow EDK friends.
