Kickin' it in gear ;-)

My name is Erin. I'm 36 years old. I love working out and getting healthier! I love to see the changes in my body and challenging myself to my full potential! Kickboxing and weight lifting are my favorite ways to workout. Working out is a passion of mine, and I want to help other women realize that passion in them. When I hear women that say they don't like to workout, it makes me think that they just haven't found the right workout yet. It's very rewarding for me to see someone who has ...
My name is Erin. I'm 36 years old. I love working out and getting healthier! I love to see the changes in my body and challenging myself to my full potential! Kickboxing and weight lifting are my favorite ways to workout. Working out is a passion of mine, and I want to help other women realize that passion in them. When I hear women that say they don't like to workout, it makes me think that they just haven't found the right workout yet. It's very rewarding for me to see someone who has been saying how much they "Hate exercising" start to have fun during a workout! My goal is to help them discover that! I'd love to help women create workout and diet plans to help them achieve their goals! I also want to show them that by taking care of their bodies the way that God wants us to, they can have more energy, decrease stress, and love the life they have!

I became certified to teach Turbo Kick on October 2, 2011. It is my absolute FAVORITE workout! It was created by Chalene Johnson, who also created Turbo Jam, ChaLEAN Extreme, and Turbo Fire. I love all of her workouts, so I was excited for the opportunity to be able to buy more of her stuff. The only way to buy the Turbo Kick workouts is to be certified. I taught Turbo Kick on Wednesday mornings at the local school right by the playground during the summer. The moms could workout while their kids play! I had to modify a lot of the routine because I am using my own music (upbeat Christian music). Since I used my own music, a lot of the moves didn't flow with the songs, or ended too soon or ran longer than the song went. So I spent quite a while listening to the music and putting my own moves to it while I had to keep pausing the music to write down the moves. When I did it at the church, I was having a lot of problems with choosing sections from her routines because of the song selection. Some of her songs are not very appropriate for church, so I end up having to piece together sections from 6 different rounds (different workouts) to make a workout for my class at church.

I was always the "chubby kid" in school and ate way too much junk when I was younger! I didn't participate in any sports or exercise at that time, so I never dreamed that I would now be a very active person who teaches kickboxing and loves to workout! I lost 20 pounds between 8th and 9th grade, right after my mom passed away... I did it the wrong way though, so some of it came back by the time I graduated high school. I yo-yo'd back and forth but have finally made it a LIFESTYLE change instead of "a new diet plan." I now have such a love for fitness and taking care of my body as Jesus' Temple that people just assume that I've always been this way. They don't believe me when I tell them that I used to be chubby growing up!

I've been married for 16 years (17 in August!) to my husband, Jon. We have 2 sons, ages 12and 13. They are the joy of my life! I have a boxer dog (Monte) that is 7 years old. Monte thinks that he's my third son. I've been a Registered Nurse for 15 years.

We are actively involved in our church. My husband is an associate pastor at our church. We have attended our church for almost 12 years and love the friendships that we have built there. My boys love the youth group. I help with the women's Bible studies. We did a Beth Moore study (Mercy Triumphs) in the winter, and we did Made to Crave this past summer. We have also lead a marriage group called Marriage on the Rock by Jimmy Evans. It's an amazing DVD series and has saved so many marriages, including our own over 12 years ago!

We have a boxer dog named Monte. He's about 7 years old now. I rescued him from the animal shelter with my birthday money from my 30th birthday. He was so cute, sitting my the fence, and he was the only dog NOT barking! He is such a great dog. Very loving and sweet.

Thank you for the comment on my feed. You are the second person to tell me you they are doing PiYo and you both sound very happy with it. I loved TurboFire so I saw this program and thought it's be perfect:) If you have any tips or good teams involved in this program let me know!

Have a great day!

Yup, Insanity has several! Of course, it depends what you put into it. Like my version of running isn't long distance, was only ever 10k or so. Happy sweating!

“Above all else, do NOT quit! The universe always bows to persistence.
The empowering approach is to see your physical challenges as assets,
because overcoming obstacles forces you to develop discipline, determination and character.
These traits will carry over to other areas of your life and make you a stronger person.”
-Tom Venuto

Thanks! Hope you had a fantastic Christmas yourself! Did you stay home or travel this year? We stayed home for the first time in a while but it was still crazy!

Any big plans to close out 2013? I'm kicking self reflection into high gear so that I can start 2014 right! :)
