She was awarded a scholarship from Career Transitions for Dancers to get her Personal Training Certification from National Academy of Sports Medicine. Erin eventually landed at Mark Fisher Fitness, where she taught group fitness classes (kettlebell/HIIT) and strength training as a personal trainer at MFF for the next 5 years to the beloved Broadway community of NYC.
