Hi, I’m Erika Kluhsman, and I’m so excited to be part of the amazing team at RaceStart. I am a kindergarten teacher by day and trainer by night. Teaching young children to make good choices and try their best is very similar to teaching adults the same thing…minus a few songs and fingerplays!
I have not always been where I’m at now and I have worked hard to get where I am physically and mentally. I played sports in high school and college but would not consider myself an athlete.
It took a few years of truly struggling with my physical and emotional health to realize that I was capable of more.
I knew I wanted to be happy and healthy more than I wanted to feel sorry for myself and eat cookies. I began training and got in the habit of setting healthy intentions. I have fallen in love with the process and now I want to pay it forward and help others.
My goal in training is to empower others to see their own potential and realize that they are stronger than they think they are – this is my true passion and the main reason I decided to become a trainer at RaceStart. I am all about motivation and accountability – make small, positive, healthy choices that turn into habits so we can live our best life. It’s all about the journey and falling in love with the process of a healthy transformation.
