Erin has been in the fitness industry for over 15 years teaching fitness classes and personal training all types of people from weight loss clients to athletes. After becoming a mom herself to her two boys, she discovered an area in the world of fitness that was missing at the time......the ability to include your active children while you exercise. That's when she started "Fitness with Kids", which provided parents with the ability to include babies, toddlers, and preschoolers while they worked out.  As time went on, Erin wanted to include people without kids in her bootcamps too, so she started "Strong For Life" to include everyone. Erin has a background in fitness and sports, playing women's hockey, women's soccer, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, weight-training, and running. She loves the adrenaline high she gets out of pushing herself through a workout and strives to help others  to feel that same energy high, reach their goals, feel better, and look forward to their workouts.

Mia grew up in New Brunswick and moved to Calgary to go to university several years ago, and never looked back! She is a sweat enthusiast and makes it a point to work out at least 5 days a week!

Nicole Wiens 
Growing up, Nicole was always involved in sports including swim club, soccer, baseball, biking and hiking.   However when she was in her teens she gave it all up.  It was only after having her first child that she decided to get active again and tried starting with the gym, but that wasn't motivating enough. A few years later after having her second child,  she joined a bootcamp and got hooked!  She was an avid participant of Erin's bootcamps for years, got in the best shape of her life taking boot-camps with her children in tow, and decided she needed to do more with this passion, so she became a certified trainer herself .   She loves teaching classes and it shows in every class. She is very excited to be sharing her passion with others!   She is also an active role model for her children, taking them hiking, biking, and camping every chance she gets.
 
Nicole and Erin trained hard to compete in the Femsport Calgary Women's Strength and Fitness Challenge in June 2013 and June 2014! Here are some pictures from the events:
