      Erin

      • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
      • AHA First Aid & CPR/AED Certified

      In August 2013, Erin treated herself to a 55th birthday present and joined CrossFit Full Potential as a member. She had absolutely no prior CrossFit experience!!!!!! Prior to joining, Erin spent years as a somewhat consistent gym rat but gave up ‘working out’ after injuring her back and focused on softer pursuits such as yoga and spin classes. After 7+ years with no success at healing her back with yoga and other therapies, Erin joined CFFP. Her intention was to avoid anything related to her back and just try and get a little stronger!!! The funny thing was, after 6 months at CFFP and working with the coaches, getting creative with modifications and actually focusing on her back versus avoiding – she was pain free and a convert!!! Today, no more modifications are needed – at least not for her back!!! Fast forward to September of 2019 and as a retirement present, Erin completed her CrossFit Level 1 training.

      Erin’s belief is AGE is not a limiting factor and if anything – it is an asset! She is very excited to work with anyone and everyone interested in joining us at CFFP – but she is particularly excited about folks in her ‘demographic’ that take the plunge!!! Modification, accommodation and safety are CFFP’s hallmarks! Come join her!
