What do you get when you mix a massage therapist with a goldsmith? At a loss? Well, you get Erin, that’s what you get! Yes, you read that correctly. Not only is she a licensed massage therapist, but she’s also been a goldsmith for the last 17 years (along with her hubby!). A fan of Tinkerbell, tattoos, and sharks, Erin joined us back in March of 2017. I don’t think she fully understood what she was getting herself into when she joined us. I don’t think she really understood that she was adding a second family to her life, or that she would end up meeting her swolemate (aka Kymberle West).
All we know is that we are so happy she came walking through those doors 8 months ago. Erin gets her butt to the 5:30am class 5 days a week (and sometimes even throws a Saturday class in for that 6th day). She’s incredibly dedicated and has never let her health issues stop her from working towards her goals. She has no idea how many members she inspires.

Can you describe any reservations that you had before you started working with us?
There were a few reservations I had before I started at Fit For All. I’d never stuck with any weight loss or work out program program before. The longest period of time was 1 month. I needed a program that would keep me motivated, because even though my family’s extremely supportive, they were never doing the programs with me. I honestly was very unsure if I could commit to a program because making time for myself isn’t something that I’m used to. I was afraid the guilt would keep me from wanting to continue. I’d have to put myself first, and that was a hard concept for me to get used to. Frankly I’m still struggling with it a little. I just have to keep reminding myself that I’m doing this to better myself and for my family.
Can you explain how Fit For All was able to help you with your reservations?
Fit For All was able to help me with my reservations by providing a very supportive environment. It wasn’t like other gyms that were very self motivating and secluded. Even though you may be surrounded by other people at a gym (running on tread mills and using weight machines) there was little to no interaction. I just couldn’t stay motivated. I’d get bored and give up. I craved the human interaction and motivation that others in the same boat would give, and wanted the chance to help motivate others as well. Fit for All has created the support, the community, and the family that I was needing to keep me on track.
