About Erin

I’m Erin, and I’m a bunch of things. I’m a writer. I’m an”unconventional” certified personal trainer. I’m a certified nutritional therapist. I’m a life coach. These are what I do. I’m a wife and an American expat living in Glasgow, Scotland. I love to blog, exercise, make soups, and spend time with my adorable husband, Luke. He’s super cute and Scottish. I love when he says ordinary words like carrot because it sounds like “ca-ddot.”

I started Beets Per Minute when I began working as a certified personal trainer as a place to write about health and fitness and, also, my experience with body dissatisfaction and my (nearly) fifteen-year experience battling an eating disorder.

As I mentioned, I live in Glasgow with my husband, we got married November 28, 2014.  I moved to Scotland shortly after.

Life as an expat can be many things.  It can be frustrating, sad, hilarious, but mostly exciting.  People always say, “well, at least, they speak English there” — if you’ve ever been to Glasgow, you know that’s not entirely the case.

I do get homesick, but I also enjoy living in a new place.  I bitch about the weather here ALL THE TIME.

I love to cook.   I love food.  I just eat what I want.  I spent over a decade of my life at war with my body image.  I’m done with that sh*t.

I think all bodies are great, and no matter what your size is, you should own it and take care of it how you see fit.  Nobody ever became happier with their body by tearing down somebody else’s.

 


About BeetsPerMinuteYou might be wondering why I refer to myself as an “unconventional” personal trainer and the reason for this is, I like to train differently from most other trainers.  I like to focus more on what’s going on inside, and the relationship people have with their bodies and then adapt how I feel they should proceed.

I am sick and tired of the “bro” approach to fitness.  I spent years thinking that I had to be the perfect weight to help other people and make a difference. Sure, I get some, “do you even lift, bro?!” comments, but I don’t give a single f**k.  Fitness looks different for each of us.  I’m more interested in getting people feeling healthy, confident, and happy with who they are from the inside out.

I became interested in the field of life coaching because I’ve always had a passion for helping others.  I knew I had zero interest in studying psychology formally (though it was part of my college major) and knew I wanted to help people live their life to the fullest potential.  I couldn’t be more excited to get to work helping more people while continuing to help myself.

  1. Hey, I’ve been checking in on your blog, and I have a couple things to say:
    1) I ALSO love the new logo. It’s awesome and very you.
    2) As your former roommate and school colleague, I am not at all surprised by your smart and research based new career. You continue to be one of the smartest women I know.
    3) As your forever friend, I have never been more proud of you for taking something that has been a struggle for you (body image) and turning it into a life long passion and career. You have always been a caring and loving person, and now your are taking your focus and helping others. I am inspired.

    1. I am so pleased you’re checking out my blog! Thank you so much for your kind words – I really appreciate it. I am really excited to have started this project and hope that it helps others.

      xoxo
