Erin is proud to hold a nationally accredited personal training certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). NASM uses proprietary, evidence-based Optimum Performance Training (OPT) methods and precision assessment tools to deliver measurable results. NASM techniques are equally effective for the professional athlete or casual fitness enthusiast. Erin can help you achieve optimal results by tailoring your training methods to achieve your personal fitness goals. I view my relationship with clients as a partnership in their health. I want clients to feel inspired by their training and motivated to make change in their lives. Growing up I spent my winter weekends skiing down our backyard mountain ( Mt. Ascutney), joining all the sport teams I possibly could in school, jumping at any opportunity that my small hometown had to offer. Always up for trying new activities once, and then again twice because I love it, my determination and curiosity has me never turning down a challenge, or an opportunity for new experiences. Time and time again, I’m reminded of the positive effects exercise has on my own physical and psychological well-being, and my appreciation for what our bodies and minds can achieve is ever increasing.
I am a proud mom of two beautiful daughters, Acadia and Azalea . Together we enjoy running 5k races and doing crafts of any kind. When given the opportunity I very much enjoy traveling and meeting new people. I devote most of my time to family and professional responsibilities. I love what I do and I hope that it shows in my work. I really believe in community service as a way of making positive contributions. I am in my fourth year as a Girl Scout Leader for local children K-5th grade and help with the local Girls on the Run Team!
Hobbies: Enjoys obstacle course racing, endurance cycling events, hiking, running, snow shoeing and cross country skiing!
