As a mother of two teenage boys and a baby girl – I know what it means to be busy with the activities that children can so easily bring into our lives, such as hockey, crew, school, and anything else their schedule begs of me. Pregnancy was also difficult in the weight gain arena, as I gained 70 pounds for all three babies for a total of 210 pounds! I understand the struggles of weight loss first hand and also have the tools to be successful.
To keep care of my health and the health of my family, I incorporate strength training, cardio, and clean eating into our everyday lives. I believe in the 80/20 rule and stay on my maintenance clean diet 80% of the time, 20% of the time I enjoy ice cream, pizza, or indulge in extra korean BBQ!
I am not always able to find time to do a workout, which is true for many people, but that just means that I have to make time. When I make the time to work out, I feel healthier, more alert, strong, and ready to take on the day. The best gift that I can leave for my children and clients is the knowledge of eating healthier and working out so they can live with the energy to take on their days and feel their best.
Meet the Team
Manager / Chief Inspirational Officer / Nutrition Coach and Personal Trainer
The amount of gratitude I have from being part of the Erin Cantrell Fitness family is more than I can express! To say I am thankful would be an understatement. Becoming a certified personal trainer was not on my “vision” board. It wasn’t until after I had my son that I truly started to invest in myself. After seeing that discipline and consistency truly did make a difference, I was hooked! Who would have thought becoming a NASM Certified Personal Trainer would be such a gift! It has inspired me to live my best life and to teach others how to lead by example, dream big, and never give up. Know this: You CAN start over each morning....you win when you show up!
Personal Trainer / Team Influencer
Health and fitness became a huge passion of mine at a very young age. Being a troubled kid growing up, I always needed to find a way to express myself. I picked up a weight when I got to high school and I never looked back. That exact passion inspired me to pursue a degree in sports performance and fitness, to develop a career in the field I love the most. Throughout my education, I have learned the in and outs of human movement and how it can increase anyone’s quality of life!
Personal Trainer / Yoga Instructor
Fun fact: I have climbed 30 of the 50 U.S. state high points (and hope to one day scale the last 20!). A lover of the outdoors, and overall ambassador for all things wellness, I bring creativity and passion to my training. Not unlike my enthusiasm for climbing mountains, my greatest joy in my work is seeing my clients progress towards their goals. My yoga practice and training along with the ups and downs life brings us all has taught me that wellness encompasses both the physical and mental. My training style aims to incorporate strength and conditioning, mobility work, and yoga asana in an effort to integrate each of my clients into their best self!
I come with a background of six years in the Army. During my time in the Military, I earned several high achievements for my physical performance; to include the highest score in our Physical Training test out of 100 plus soldiers while in Basic Training, as well as an Air Assault Badge during Active Duty. However, my passion for fitness began well before the Military. From a young age I have always been involved in sports. As I grew older, I realized how fitness could forever change my life for the better – both physically and mentally; especially after becoming a husband and a father. I want to instill these same values and the confidence I have been able to gain through fitness in each and every person that I have the opportunity to train.
