"I have trained with Erika regularly. She has a uniquely positive way to coach you towards your goals. As for results, I have never been in a better shape, than when I'm working out with her. Excercising on my own has not brought me the same results, and that's why I recommend her to anyone who would like to lead a healthier life, to get in better shape or to grow muscle. Erika has made healthy lifestyle easy with her 10 Minute Body guidelines. Thanks Erika, you are the best!" - Raisa H.



"When I started PT with Erika last year I was pretty sick of going to the gym 4 or 5 times a week and getting no results. All I did was cardio with very little resistance training, and although my diet was pretty clean I was eating a bit too much and getting nowhere (if anything I was putting weight on). I really wanted to tone up and improve my fitness but also improve the relationship with myself. I was bulimic when I was younger and so loving my body is something that I have never been particularly good at, I felt that I was at a time in my life that I needed to move past this and make some positive changes, both physically and mentally.

Since I started with Erika I have seen a lot of physical changes, I've lost just over a stone, I'm stronger than I've ever been and I feel a lot more toned. But better than any physical change are the mental ones, I'm more positive about life in general, have a better relationship with food and am even learning to love my body, slowly but surely.  The strength I have gained from Erika's training has also allowed me to progress in yoga, something which I love but have never had the strength, or confidence to improve in.

Over the time I've been training with Erika I've learned so much!! Sessions are always varied and fun, pushing you beyond limits that you didn't even know you had! Erika's enthusiasm is also unreal, I feel completely supported and motivated not only during the sessions but also in-between times. Her advice goes beyond exercise and nutrition, even giving me fantastic advice on how to deal the writers block I had during my masters dissertation!!

Erika would do anything for her clients, a truly amazing PT. I could stop there but its more than that, she is also a wonderful person who genuinely cares about each and every one of her clients. There is no way I would ever have reached my goals without her and there are no words which express how grateful I am for her help and support!" - Emma S.



"Erika's clients results speak for themselves, I've lost over 16 kgs with her, and yet gained so much confidence and much happier person than when I started. I have changed so much for the better, everyone deserves that. Erika is an amazing PT that has changed my life so much for the better, it was the greatest decision to date to become one of her clients." - Jeannie H.



"Anyone looking for a PT would be insane not to want Erika. I have PT in the past and have never experienced the dedication previously. Erika is a fantastic teacher and mentor her patience and guidance has given me the the strength and confidence to keep going when times are hard. Not just the motivation in the gym and fitness but when work or life gets you down." - Khelda S.
