Meet Your Trainers
I’m Erin, a wife, fitness professional, business owner, and MOM
of twin girls, Kennedy and Lila.
After my girls were born, my fitness routine went down the toilet. I found myself so consumed with taking care of them that I was too tired to take care of myself. I gained weight, had no energy, and became anxious and depressed. After way too long of feeling like crap, I realized I needed to take back control and take care of myself. I hired a trainer to train with virtually at home. I developed an exercise routine, woke up early to make sure I dedicated time to myself, and found more ways to sneak fitness into my everyday life
His government name is Wesley Showalter, but most refer to him as Wes, Show-Dub, Cat Whisperer, or The Sheriff.
Wes started training with a coach at age 12 in an attempt to make up for lack of natural athleticism and improve his body composition. Fascinated by the training process and the results they yielded kept Wes coming back to the gym regularly. As a teenager, the weight room became a sanctuary for Wes through some difficult times by relieving stress with the added bonus of being around others that wanted to become stronger humans.

About the MOM-Minutes Method
When folks hear the words like exercise, training, and workout, certain things come to mind based on life experience. It will differ slightly from person to person. One common thought process is that a workout HAS to be a certain amount of time (usually somewhere between 30 minutes to an hour is what pops into people's heads), or it isn't a workout that exercises have to be done at the same time block to reap the benefits of training, or that you have to be drenched in sweat every time.
One, this isn't true, and two, when people have these false expectations in their head, it tends to lead to a thought process of "Well, I only have 15 (shit, 10) minutes, and I can't do it all at the same time or as it is written up so I'll do it tomorrow (more like never)." This all-or-nothing mentality is typical amongst many but moms, even more so. Why? Because Moms are BUSY! They constantly juggle things like snack time, drop-off and pick-ups, laundry, groceries, temper tantrums, dirty diapers, and nap times.
The training process is all about consistently stressing (not like a 2-year-old meltdown in the store stressing but rather in the form of exercise) the system to drive adaptation (stronger, leaner, more flexible, etc.). You can still train (in the form of the exercises we program) and still drive adaptation, even if you have to break up your training throughout the day.
The key is being consistent about it and playing the long game. We all know one week of training isn't going to give you a nice ass, keeping on top of doing what you can and how you can regularly can start to accumulate over time and yield results (typically takes 4-6 weeks to begin to adapt to a training program).
