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.

More Easy Patterns to Follow

Try this one.  The run is a short shuttle run...about 20 yards out and back = 1 rep.

1 x Burpee
1 x Run there/ back
2 x Burpee
2 x Run there/ back
3 x Burpee
3 x Run there/ back
...all the way up to
10 x Burpee
10 x Run there/ back

You may do this with any kind of exercise in place of the burpee.  Change it up!  Try it with a Sumo Deadlift High Pull.  For a super challenge, plug in Man Makers, instead=)

Try this one with a set of gliders or paper plates on your hard wood or tile floor:

*60 sec. x Glide in place (i.e. Mountain Climbers, Tuck-Ins, Plank Jacks, Cross Body Glide)
*6 x Burpee/ Burpee Jack/ Squat-Thrust-Jump/ Crouch Push-Up to Tuck Jump/ Etc.
*50 sec. x Glide
*5 x Burpee Variation
*40 x Glide
*4 x Burpee Variation
*30 sec. x Glide
*3 x Burpee Variation
*20 sec. Glide
*2 x Burpee Variation
*10 sec. Glide
*1 x Burpee Variation
