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.

The Final BridgeHampton Boot Camp of the Summer

Tonight was our final boot camp of the summer over at the BridgeHampton neighborhood.  And what a final session it was...just me and Jen Templeton sweating it out together=)  It was certainly a small group, but we got it done and sent BH Boot Camp out in style!  

Reminder: Instead of teaching the BridgeHampton Boot Camp on Monday evenings in the fall, I will be teaching boot camp for the Y over at the Ballantyne Corporate Park (Mondays from 5:30pm until 6:15pm, begins 9/12 and runs through October).  We meet at the Brixham Tent.  Best news of all: it is free to all Y members, regardless of home branch.  Come one, come all!  The possibilities are ENDLESS out there at the Corp Park...fit trail, lakes to run around, hills to climb, benches to jump up to, etc, etc.
