As a two time Kona Ironman qualifier I have ambitious athletic goals and as a physician I am very discerning in my choice of trainers. Ericka came highly recommended, and my first hand observations of her working with clients confirmed to me that we would make a good fit. I have not been disappointed. She comes prepared to each of our sessions with a carefully crafted menu of exercises to work through, each building upon the previous within that day's workout, and building in a more holistic fashion from week to week. The progression is well thought out and designed to target my weaknesses while improving not just my strength, but also my flexibility and posture, all while avoiding injury. I highly appreciate her attention to detail in getting me to execute each move in a technically precise fashion, and her demonstrations of the movements leave me with a profound respect for the degree to which she has honed her craft. Working with Ericka has made me a stronger and more resilient athlete and under her tutelage and support I am left with a sense that my best is yet to come. What more can you ask for? – Jeff W.

make yourself a priority…

Ericka is an excellent coach. She is passionate about teaching you the correct technique but also strengthening your ability to believe in what you can accomplish with the right mindset. Training with Ericka helps me approach things I thought I couldn’t do before from not only a strength perspective but a confidence perspective. Not a day goes by that I’m not grateful for her training and it’s carryover into my every day life.

Ericka's focus on coaching proper form for each kettlebell exercise coupled with her passion and commitment to help others succeed is exactly what I needed. Private sessions have been invaluable for me. I previously suffered a sports-related injury that over time – due to my body compensating for the injury – lead to other injuries. Ericka's training sessions have not only helped me get stronger, but her attention to technique and corrective strategies eliminated the ways I had been compensating. I have truly enjoyed training with Ericka and I have never felt better as a result of it! – Deb N.
