“One Should Eat to Live, Not Live to Eat” ~Socrates
I am a passionate Health and Fitness Professional who thrives on helping to improve your Health, Fitness, Wellness, and Quality of Life.
My Health and Fitness journey has been a long one and one that had many up and downs.
At first, my journey leads me in 2008 to eating plant-based then switching more vegan due to my body rebelling on me.
I was experiencing heartburn every time I ate chicken, digestive issues when eating red meat, bloating, and massive digestive issue with anything dairy (which has been a struggle for a long time in my life).
I knew I needed to make a change and find a way life that was better for me and my overall health.
This is where eating a Whole Foods balance diet came into play, and I slowly choose more plant-based options and reducing the foods that were causing me problems. In doing this, I felt better, happier, cholesterol lowered, and had glowing skin.
However, I was still struggling on a few health aspects, confused about perfecting my diet and exercise program and losing the fat.
I had tried specific programs or diets that, in the end, just did not work for me. I didn’t know that everyone’s body is different, and not one diet, program, or fitness routine will work. Along with limitations and the psychology part, our mind can prevent us from reaching a goal in life. This brought me deeper into the health, nutrition, and wellness part wanting to learn more for myself and help others.
I then needed to work on myself in general from the inside out-mentally and physically, which lead me early in 2019 to quit my job out of the blue with no job lined up. I had struggled with stress from being overworked, going through the motions, and in a toxic working environment in a career that I did not feel happy or passionate about anymore. I knew there was something else out there that was my sole purpose in life. Finally, after quitting my job from extreme burnout and anxiety, a lightbulb came on a few months later, and I discovered my true calling as a Health, Wellness, & Fitness Coach.
I thrive on helping and motivating others into a healthier way of life, improving their quality of life being in a more Zen state of mind, and helping them obtain a stronger body and mind. I want to help them be the best version of themselves and want to help make a difference one small step at a time.
When Erin says she’s available to help at all hours, she is. The program helps one focus on each day and each better health habit at a time to be integrated as part of your life. Excellent for those in quarantine, those who work at home and people who keep odd hours. The group chat lets other encourage you and you, them. Erin’s program helped me say good bye to all the Corona weight.
Woo hoo!! I did it!! I met my short-term weight goal during the 6-Week Spring Challenge. I feel great. Thanks, Erin, for helping me set and achieve my short-term health goals. Your Wellness Program offers me the tools and encouragement I need to build strength and flexibility while striving for long-term success …. all while creating sustainable habits.
I haven’t felt this good in…well I don’t know when! Erin has challenged me in a way that fits my busy lifestyle. Before working with Erin, I lacked motivation in the exercise department but now, I can’t imagine a day without a workout! She gives me workouts that are challenging but yet totally doable. I have been able to push myself and get stronger than I ever thought possible! I also love the extra meal plans which are the perfect complement to what my family needs in our mission to be healthier.
I am enjoying Erin’s training for so many reasons!! She is helping me get stronger & leaner, while being mindful & present. I love the way she schedules my workouts, meditation (I am fairly new to it & now look forward to it everyday), stretching & awesome recipes. The app is very easy to use. She also gives awesome tips for exercise modifications & grocery shopping. I am super happy with my results just over 3 weeks!! I can’t say enough how happy I am to be on this journey with an amazing coach & a great group of fellow goal crushers, cheering each other on everyday!!
Erin, thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with me. I have become a healthier person because of it. I truly appreciate how you were there for me when things got tough and you walked me thru them.
Erin works with care with me as an individual and tailors my workouts to meet my needs. She also recommends modifications on specific exercises. She is very attentive to proper form. Erin is also very knowledgeable on nutrition questions. She is truly a blessing for anyone interested in getting into shape and feeling healthy and strong!
I am a 77-year-old female who about a year ago realized that I was out of shape, had flabby arms and an increased waistline and abdomen. I could not get off the floor without pulling myself up with a chair or sofa! I had tried losing weight several times and even gotten my weight down, but felt that I needed exercise at my age. Erin Wheless started working with me to help me build up my strength in my arms and legs. Over the course of the past year, she has slowly helped me build my strength so that now I can get off the floor by myself, my arms have become more toned, my legs are stronger and my waistline has slimmed down. She has slowly changed my life with exercises that I can now do on line instead of going to the fitness center. She has a calming demeanor when I’m hard on myself yet has a way of encouraging me that makes me want to achieve more. Thank you Erin for helping me feel good and look better than I ever dreamed I would at my age!
