In his early 20’s, Erik became a student of fitness, beginning with weightlifting and a nutritionally balanced diet, ultimately leading to a 40lb weight loss in four short months. It became important to Erik to expand his fitness knowledge so he could continue improve his own diet and training. That drive to better his health ultimately led to Erik to transform his body and his career into the fitness industry.
Erik dabbled in different exercise styles and methods but found that weightlifting was the most successful approach to exercise. He was introduced to The Perfect Workout’s slow-motion strength training method and the significant results it yields in a remarkably short amount of time. After trying a workout for himself, Erik thought “this is truly an undiscovered gem of the fitness world!”
At the beginning of Erik’s fitness journey, he was fortunate to have the guidance of a friend who was a Personal Trainer. Her assistance was as vital to his results as his own participation. This is one of the main reasons Erik wanted to become a Personal Trainer, to have the ability to help others improve their health and wellness.
While working a full-time job, Erik enrolled in a personal training certification program and after a year of rigorous studying, passed his certification test. Now a Certified Personal Trainer at The Perfect Workout and through the National Academy of Sports and Medicine (NASM), Erik is helping his clients change their bodies and their lives with the most efficient way to exercise- slow-motion strength training.
“Getting to know every client individually, is what helps me take a personal approach to helping my clients get results.” He puts forth the utmost effort to ensure all of his clients receive the most effective training – producing results and functional strength without lengthy time commitments.
“I am thrilled to be a part of a team of trainers where I can influence positive changes for others. It’s very fulfilling!”
Adisha grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and enjoyed participating in sports such as gymnastics, figure skating, soccer, volleyball, and track and field. At eight years old she joined the competitive gymnastics team. Gymnastics eventually resulted in her fracturing her back and having a herniated disc. After struggling through two years of physical therapy, she was able to return to the sport and continued to participate in it throughout college.
Adisha went on to get her Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from UC Berkeley and is currently studying for her doctorate in physical therapy at UCSF. While in college, she became a NASM certified personal trainer to expand her knowledge of the human body.
Her own experiences in gymnastics, physical therapy, and psychology classes showed her that exercise is a gateway to the mind and revealed that movement is empowering -it can help you regain control of both your body and mind.
She loves being a part of The Perfect Workout because she believes it is the perfect example of how exercise can improve both physical and mental health. The super slow motion, high-intensity workouts are ideal because they provide an effective workout without putting much force on your joints -reducing the likelihood of injury during and after the workout.
Adisha also believes that these safe and effective workouts, although still very challenging, are more enjoyable resulting in the added benefit of reducing the stress and anxiety that many people experience daily.
"I truly love to get to know all of my members and as a personal trainer, I aspire to connect physical health with mental well-being in order to provide integrated and personalized care!"
