Where Science Meets Fitness

No matter what your current fitness level or former athletic experience, you can learn to train like an Olympic-caliber athlete. I am Erin Borchard, a former elite springboard/platform diver (NCAA Champion and multi-year All-American at Stanford University, former member of the US National Diving Team, and two-time competitor at the US Olympic Team Trials), specializing in personal and small group training sessions. I am also a Phi Beta Kappa student with a B.A. in Human Biology; my strong science background is an ever present influence shaping and changing my training philosophy.

I want to help you push yourself to YOUR maximum...you'll be shocked to find the true athlete living inside of you.

WALL CLIMBS: Not Just a Cool Party Trick


Watch the video at the link above to find out why wall climbs are more than just a way to show off.  Handstands (holding handstands, working your way into handstands, handstand push-ups, etc) are one of the most efficient exercises you can do.  A handstand works just about every muscle in your body all at once.  By taking baby steps, you CAN teach yourself to execute this move and to use it in your weekly workout routine.
