"When I started with Erin I was 30 pounds overweight, tired all the time, had high blood pressure, and was pre-diabetic. I joined her accountability group hoping to lose a few pounds. Little did I know it would change my life. With Erin’s help, I have lost the weight and seen dramatic progress in my over all health. She has taught me how to incorporate exercise and healthy eating into my life and explains why what I put into my body is key to living well. Her encouragement, positivity, and the knowledge she shares keeps me going daily. I will be forever grateful!"
"I was 43 and didn’t know how to eat. As a result, I existed on sugar to keep me going. Veggies entered the picture only by accident and rarely. Improper fueling of my body had caught up with me. I was 10-15lbs overweight, had zero strength, constantly exhausted and always ached. I knew Erin prior to her health journey and had followed her as she regained her health. I watched her do it without gimmicks or starving. She had mastered the proper way to fuel her body, so I reached out to her figuring I could learn something. I learned veggies are good. I learned fat is healthy. I learned how to eat and what I put in my mouth is my choice! I now eat more veggies in one day than I used to in a month! My body doesn’t ache, unless I overdo it with a treat, and I have more strength and energy than before. This summer I wore shorts that didn’t hit the knee for the first time in years. My husband says he sees “dents” in my back where I have built muscle. Erin walks this walk with you. She knows what it is like to be in our shoes and she is always there when you need her to pull you up! The research and information she provides is incredible and she explains it so it makes sense and isn’t so scientific. I am so glad I reached out to Erin when I did. Have I lost a few pounds? Sure. But what I gained is the knowledge to choose lifelong health. Thanks Erin!"

"Last February 2017, I was at an all time low in my health. I was morbidly obese and suffering from a variety of related ailments. I had developed high blood pressure, snoring and sleep apnea, joint pain, IBS and a variety of digestive issues. I knew this wasn't the quality of life I wanted for myself or my family. I couldn't believe how badly I had let my health spiral out of control. I knew I was capable of doing more and simply "being" more. I began searching for help, truthfully, HOPE. I started exercising and trying to educate myself about nutrition. I began my journey in February and was blessed to have come across Erin's Fitness program on Facebook. We finally connected in July and with her invaluable guidance, support, and incredible knowledge of health, fitness, and nutrition, I have lost over 50 pounds and have gained so much more. I no longer suffer from high blood pressure, joint pain, sleep apnea, IBS etc. I have learned the value of healthy nutrition and exercise that suits this age and stage in my life. Her method of fitness, accountability and healthy nutrition is realistic, affordable, and most importantly SUSTAINABLE. There are no gimmicks or quick fixes. She teaches major life changes and that's what is key to long term success in achieving your weight loss and fitness goals. Heading into my 50's, I am eternally grateful to have my quality of life back and feel better and stronger than I have in years. Good health is the best gift anyone can give to themselves and their loved ones. I highly recommend EmpowerMe Fitness and am living proof of it's success!"

"To me, despair is when you really want to change something and you can't seem to do it. I was feeling like this after my 3rd kid. I don't know if it was because I am getting older, or less sleep, or just mentally maxed out but I could not seem to get in a good flow with my nutrition, and my body wasn't as forgiving me the way it used to. So, I talked to Erin and decided to do the online group challenge. What makes it so powerful is that it is multidimensional. Erin knows her stuff. She has done the research and walks the walk. She give you all of the information you need from a specific plan for your body, to daily videos and book recommendations. What was maybe the missing link for me was the emotional support the group gives. If eating and nutrition were strictly cognitive, I think we would have cracked the code already. But since we are emotional people who like pleasure and connection, I have to find a way to experience pleasure and deal with pain in a way that bring me closer to my goals. I have plenty of moments of motivation--but I need help when my motivation fails me. It has been very powerful to connect with like-minded people who will not judge, but will always influence for good. Not only that, but being someone's partner give you a chance to be a good influence on them and starts a cycle of motivation. I have never been able to lose weight in the past when I've tried. I was surprised how fast my body seems to love what I was giving it and my body started changing. The formula works--it's just a matter of committing to it. I haven't been perfect, but I have been consistent and that has been enough to see results."
I can honestly say that I have made more progress in the three months I've been working with Erin than I have my entire life yo-yo dieting! At some point in my life, I just stopped caring about me and just let myself go. I’d eat to comfort myself and being 41, losing weight takes a lot of work. The more I gained the more I ate, and my solution was to just get bigger clothes. I’ve struggled with my weight my entire life, but I had reached my max. I weighed the most I ever had and I felt even worse. My dear friend told me about this group a while back but at the time, I wasn’t ready. Then, everything came full circle. I was watching my life pass right in front of me because of my weight. It took my Dr. telling me that I HAD to start exercising and I HAD to lose weight. I decided it was time to take back my life. I had to put the pizza down and put me first. That’s when I decided to really commit and join this group. Erin called me when I first joined and explained everything to me. My first thought (like always) was, I can’t do this. Wait, what? I hadn’t even started yet and I was already telling myself I was going to give up. Well, here I am, three months in and still going! It’s not just a diet. It’s a lifestyle change forever. Yes, there are days when I want to give up and eat pizza, but I always have the support from this group! My biggest success is because Erin has given the tools I need to succeed, as well as the support from the group! I’m also learning how to fuel my body with what it needs, not just crap. I feel so much better already and I feel healthy. I have a long way to go, but because of Erin, I know I can do it!
