Erica Clarkson
Erica ClarksonGeneral Manager
Erica was born and raised in Minnesota. She received a B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Kansas. Much of what she teaches today stems from her knowledge of the body on a cellular level.
Erica has devoted her career to developing the newest and most effective fitness programs. Her most popular being the Commit Bridal Fitness Program. She believes there is nothing more rewarding than sending her brides down the aisle looking and feeling their best on the happiest day of their life.

Erica lives in Lohi with her husky-mix, Cooper. One thing you didn’t know about Erica – I eat chocolate every single morning… specifically, brownies. Erica grew up in Minnesota but recently found her new home here in Denver. She loves this city.

Literally everything inspires Erica about this field. She loves how clear the mind becomes once all the days’ stress is thrown away. There is nothing quite like the look on her clients face when they do something they thought they couldn’t. She’s inspired knowing that there is always something more she can learn about the body. But most of all, she loves how raw and real it is. No matter where you are in your life or where you want to be, fitness will always be there.

Kyle’s favorite part about training is watching his clients build confidence in themselves while reaching their fitness goals, and seeing the results carry over into their everyday life. The most enjoyable form of working out for him is hiking and anything outdoors. Staying active and working out is important to Kyle for an overall better wellbeing, but mostly so he can eat all the pizza he wants.

Will Goodwin
Will GoodwinPersonal Trainer
Will grew up in rural Virginia. He spent countless summers hiking the Appalachian Mountains near his home and played baseball and lacrosse. He attended Virginia Commonwealth University before ultimately moving to Colorado.
He believes that as humans, we are made to move a lot, in as many ways as possible – to walk, to crawl, to lift our children, hang from trees, squat down, and hike mountains. Yet, we live in a time where being a human is getting harder. We have little time to move or take care of ourselves.

Will came into the world of health of fitness very ‘dehumanized’. He suffered from anxiety during college and realized he was losing his ability to move well. To change his outlook on life he began going for walks and eventually made his way to the gym where he started strength training. Next was yoga, gymnastic training, and anything else that allowed him to use his body in unique ways. He became captivated by movement and the human form.

After seeing how much of an impact health and fitness had on his life Will decided that he wanted to share that with others. After graduating from college, he went on to become a certified personal trainer and yoga instructor.

He loves helping others achieve their goals, whatever they may be. He is always learning, drawing from the knowledge of others, and using his own training experience to give clients the best experience possible.

A unique aspect of Will’s fitness is in not owning a couch. It sounds strange but his mobility went through the roof when he gave up the sofa and had to learn to get comfortable sitting in a squat and on the floor. You don’t have to go to his extreme, but it goes to show there is ample opportunity to work on your fitness if you’re willing to make a few sacrifices.

When Will isn’t in the gym he fills his time with anything that grabs his attention. He loves to learn new things; his interests vary but whatever hobby he pursues he dives in head first. You can find him in the woods on the weekends, experimenting with new spices in the kitchen, or playing bluegrass and folk music whenever he gets a chance. Recently he has taken up trying to roast his own coffee beans and has been mostly unsuccessful.

Johnny Woodford
Johnny WoodfordPersonal Trainer
After being an All-State high school wrestler, Johnny went on to get his B.S. in Exercise Physiology and a minor in Sport & Exercise Psychology from West Virginia University.
After becoming certified through the NSCA with CSCS (Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist), helping others avoid the pitfalls and plateaus that he encountered has become his passion.

Being injured and/or having to deal with pain is no fun and Johnny understands that. Playing sports most of his life and hitting the weights at a young age, Johnny learned many beneficial life lessons, but also learned that poor movement patterns could counteract all the progress being made. With proper planning, we can minimize injuries and attack goals relentlessly, safely, and effectively!

Being able to keep doing the things we love and pursuing new, challenging goals is crucial in life. It’s time to reclaim our bodies, see fitness in a new way, and have fun along the way!

Johnny hates being comfortable so trying new things is a compass of his. Whether that is snowboarding a mountain he never thought he could do, meeting new people and talking about unique ideas, or chasing any type of adrenaline release. Feeling nervous makes him feel human and conquering those nerves makes him feel alive. He loves longboarding, Olympic weightlifting, and meeting new, interesting people for these reasons.
