After finishing my days as a college baseball player, I spent the next 10 years spinning my wheels in the gym. There were fitness plans that worked better than others, but it wasn’t until Erin helped me with my nutrition that I really started seeing a difference. I still remember her first words to me about it all, “Nutrition is 80% of the game!” That’s probably something everyone needs to hear once they hit the 30 years old! After helping me structure a personalized nutrition plan that fit my goals, I immediately saw the difference. I stuck to the plan religiously, she held me accountable, and over the next 3 months I dropped 25lbs and 15% body fat. I am in the best shape of my life and because of that I’m getting more out of life. I feel a renewed sense of energy and mental acuity throughout the day. I have a more positive and confident approach to every day. I’m making gains in the gym. Honestly, the only problem is my jeans are too big now! I recommend Erin without any hesitation. She’s committed, personal, smart, flexible, and always willing to speak the last 10%.
When I started working with Erin, I was 52 yrs old and fairly active. My body hurt with arthritis and I already had a complete knee replacement surgery. I needed to get in shape if I want to continue having an active lifestyle. I did no exercise other than competitive horse back riding. Erin laid out a nutrition plan for me to help me reach my goals. I cleaned out my fridge and pantry. This was going to be my new way of life…NOT a diet. I was determined to give it my all-it was now or never. I lost 20lbs rather effortlessly by changing my nutrition and eating more real foods. After that, I was more interested in getting fit so I began training with Erin. I have since lost another 10lbs. Even though I am not at my goal yet, I have made a lot of progress! Nutrition Coaching has been a blessing to me. It’s a great investment in my future health. It’s been awesome to have someone like Erin there to help me along the way. I could not have done it on my own. All my questions are always answered right when I need them. Her guidance in this journey has been nothing but top notch! It’s never been easy, but Erin has been so supportive and knows all my struggles- the good, the bad, and the ugly. The changes haven’t happened over night, but I do feel stronger and healthier.
I was referred to Erin by a friend of mine after we had a discussion on nutrition. When I initially met with Erin I was surprised of how unhealthy I was eating. Erin not only detailed an extensive nutritional plan for me but also explained the importance of exercise with nutrition.
I began my program with Erin in mid March of 2014 with a goal of 30 pounds of weight loss. By mid June I had lost 25 pounds, bySeptember 1st 35 pounds. I have maintained my weight loss since by following Erin’s nutritional plan.
Erin lays out the facts of good nutrition and motivates success through encouragement and follow up. Her approach is easy to follow and she is always available for consultation or questions. I have a family member who started with Erin after the birth of her first child who has experienced much of the same success I have. I have another family I am encouraging to work with Erin to change his life style of nutrition to ensure a life time of health. I would recommend Erin to anyone who realizes the need to eat healthier and willing to make the commitment to a more fit lifestyle.

Erin started helping me with my nutrition in February of 2013. I was eating a paleo ish diet and was making gains at the gym but didn’t feel like my physical appearance reflected all the exercise I was doing. I went to Erin with this issue, and we discussed many possible issues including my food choices, stress levels, and my sleep schedule. As a physician and parent, I rarely get 8 hours of sleep, and we both agreed this would be an unavoidable hindrance to my goals. We then discussed several diet and exercise options, and we came up with a plan that would work for my lifestyle and help me reach my goals. Though I didn’t have a lot of excess body fat to lose, I shed 2% body fat while maintaining my strength which was very important to me. I definitely look better in the mirror, but the main benefit I have from this Erin-guided odyssey is how much better I feel both in and out of the gym.
Erin is a true student of nutrition and fitness. She is constantly studying the subjects. Recommendations she makes are so useful because not only are they evidence based, but also because she has tried many of them herself and can give a first hand description of what to expect. She also realizes that nutrition and fitness are not exact sciences, are long term solutions and not quick fixes, and require individual tailoring for each athlete. Once she prescribed my regimen, she and I discussed my successes, progress, and failures going forward, and she adjusted my regimen accordingly. I highly recommend working with Erin to achieve any athlete’s performance and/or aesthetic goals.
For the last two years I have worked out 5-7 times a week varying between some form of CrossFit, Olympic lifting and Power Lifting. By all accounts I was in pretty good shape. Low(ish) body fat and kind of strong… but that was the problem; I was only kind of strong. No matter how much I ate (no really, I ate everything under the sun approaching 4000 calories a day) I couldn’t seem to reach that next level of strength. A hard-gainer by all accounts I was really lost, haphazardly eating whatever was available with now sense of timing or nutrient counting. This couple with the fact that I work in an office for 10-12 hours a day started to take its toll on my lifting. My energy levels seemed to be declining in the gym and my lifting started to hit a plateau. I wanted to take my performance and health to the next level but needed some professional guidance. That is when I turned to Erin. I have known Erin for a number of years and have seen her transform herself from skinny girl to shredded physique competitor so I reached out to her hoping she could help. As most anyone who is even slightly in shape knows, the age old adage of putting on muscle while maintaining body composition is a tough nut to crack. Erin, however, dedicated countless hours to crafting an individualized nutrition plan that was based on my schedule, my programming, my access to food and my ability (or lack thereof) to cook. With a new focus on the timing of when I eat, what I eat and how much I eat Erin has helped me bust through the plateau I was dealing with. Since I have started working with Erin the results have been fabulous. My energy levels are way up… I leave the office and have endless energy in the gym. I continue to hit PR’s and I have actually achieved my goal of getting stronger while still maintaining my body composition! The best part of working with Erin is that she is available and so helpful whenever I have questions. Should I eat this or that, when should I be eating carbs, is this ok to eat now. I send her a text and she sends a response, she is easily the most engaged and invested nutrition coach I have ever worked with. For anyone that is looking to lose weight, gain muscle or both I would recommend working with Erin… you will not be disappointed.
I began seeking help for my diet when my sister announced that she was getting married- in Jamaica. I was so excited for a beach vacation, but my body was NOT! After two kids and the typical “mom” lifestyle I was feeling frumpy and heavy around the midsection. Erin helped me create a nutrition plan that worked for me and my lifestyle. She helped with recipes, shopping and positive support. I lost my extra left over baby weight plus a few pounds in time for my sister’s beach side wedding. I could not have felt better, prettier or happier. I could not have done it without Erin. I didn’t even know where to start. But she showed me the beginning and stuck with me through to the end.

I’ve been formally working with Coach Erin for 3 months now. I’ve been paying attention to my food intake every day since Coach has helped me understand how I can fuel my body and mind for maximum performance.
3 months ago I weighed 227 lbs and had a 44″ hips, 34″ waist, and 37″ chest.
Now I weigh 206, 41″ hips, 31″ waist, and 41″ chest.
The best part? I feel better. I don’t feel there are things I can’t eat. I don’t have cravings.
Her coaching has been simple, easy to understand, and easy to follow. Plus her website and emails have helped me and my family have delicious healthy meals that we enjoy making together. I can’t thank her enough for helping me make these changes not just in my body but my life.
I would also mention I’ve appreciated her comprehensive approach to my plan. She has been able to recommend several apps to help track my progress, including my fitness pal , HRV monitoring, and meditation apps. Each of these has served a purpose over the last three months to help me along and illustrates that Coach Erin understands the secret to body composition and performance is hormone optimization. That process requires careful integration of diet, activity, rest, and stress management and she will help you navigate your own path! Thank you Coach for helping me!
