Wow babes! Look at how this girl glows! We are so excited to be able to share Erin with you. You can see from the pictures how amazing she looks, but read her story to see what a truly amazing person she is on the inside as well. Her drive, ambition and ability to do anything she puts her mind to will inspire and motivate you!
Erin first came to Emilee in the midst of planning her wedding. She had hired a wedding planner to help her with the details of the big day, but in addition to having a beautiful wedding, she wanted to make sure she looked and felt healthy and fit. She didn’t have the time or knowledge to do it on her own, so that meant finding someone to help her with her fitness and nutrition…and lucky for us, she found BbE.
Her commitment and desire to get healthier were obvious from the get go. Having been so focused on her career for the past 10 years, she had neglected her health and fitness. She knew it was time for a change, but she needed to find a way to work out and eat healthy, while still balancing her demanding work schedule and social life. She started working out with Emilee three times a week and was very open to changing what she ate as well as how she ate. Emilee came up with a weekly workout schedule to accommodate Erin’s time constraints and a nutrition plan that included easy grab and go options as well as strategies for eating out and travel. Through trial and error, hits and misses and little tweaks here and there…they found what was going to be the best for Erin and she started to see and feel the results. Through her fitness training she built lean muscle and improved her endurance. She not only felt stronger, she felt leaner, tighter and more toned. Her stress levels decreased and she was more productive, centered and healthy! Workouts that once felt too hard were easier and she started to feel everything come together. She noticed the difference in her energy levels and her body when she wasn’t eating right and truly began to understand the impact and importance of eating healthy. Her and her fiance started cooking more and finding healthy dinner options they could enjoy together! She had found a way to create the healthy lifestyle she wanted, reach her fitness and weight loss goals and look and feel her best on her wedding day and every day!
BbE: How did working with BbE help you fit workouts into your busy schedule?
I have always struggled with making time for my health, especially establishing a workout routine regimen. Emilee is a professional on all levels and it shows in her ability to tailor her business to women of different backgrounds; for me, Emilee immediately was able to understand the needs of my demanding job. She fit me in at times that I was able to get away from the office and when conflicts would arise she worked with me to resolve/move schedules and accommodate to the best of her ability. Despite planning a wedding, working through years of bad health habits and working many many hours, Emilee was able to help me to reach my goals in a matter of months. Fitting my workouts in amongst my busy schedule had always taken the back burner; but now they are one of the things I look forward to the most during week and my body craves the movement.
BbE: What changes to your nutrition did BbE help you make?
I have some serious food allergies and Emilee tailored my nutrition to work around my limitations – she gave me options for healthy and quick lunches, and taught me the importance of pre and post workout nutrition. When I came to Emilee, I had not eaten breakfast on a consistent basis in over 10 years – and because of this could not get through morning workouts. She immediately helped me understand why I was feeling the way I was, and we started to implement changes and tweak my diet based on how my body reacted. When I wasn’t reaching my goals, Emilee kept asking questions and trying different targeted things – it took a few months, but when we hit the right balance and found what worked for me, the changes that followed were incredible.
BbE: What lifestyle changes did BbE help you incorporate that you can’t imagine giving up now?
Emilee has helped me make so many positive changes over the past 10 months – she has been a life changer. She helped me gain the confidence back that I had lost over the years from losing my physical strength, she helped me let go of stress and tension that I was constantly carrying, and I am making positive choices with my nutrition without completely letting go of the things I enjoy (wine…). When I started with Emilee I suffered from severe migraines. I have only experienced one in the past 10 months. Emilee takes a very broad approach to wellness with her clients – she is as focused on mind as she is on body, and because of this the results are so meaningful. My energy levels and desire to make my health a priority are higher than they have been in many years and there’s no way I can imagine going back to the pre-BbE Erin!

“I reached out to Emilee to help me get in shape for my wedding about 4 months before my big day – I was able to lose 17 pounds before my wedding because of the BbE program, but more importantly, in that time Emilee was able to help me completely reset my health. Emilee is not only an amazing trainer and nutrition expert, she exudes compassion and love and is so incredibly in touch with those around her. Being a part of the BbE program has become a nonnegotiable part of my life – thank you, Emilee, for dedicating yourself so wholeheartedly to the well-being of your clients, I feel honored to be a part of the BbE program. My days, weeks and months are better because of you!”
Cheers Erin! We could not be happier for you and Mark! What an incredible journey it has been! Wishing you more love, laughter and happiness than you could dream of! xo
