Erin Stern at Penn State UniversityThe Fork in the Road

Although Erin enjoys a successful career in bodybuilding, fitness wasn’t always her first choice. In fact, for the most of her schooling years, she trained to become a professional track athlete; competing in high jumping and running. However, after failing to qualify for the 2008 Olympic Games, Erin realized high jumping wasn’t the “right fit” for her; choosing fitness as her career path instead.

Champion Turned Coach

Erin didn’t regret making this decision – she’s since become one of the most familiar faces in bodybuilding and beyond; spreading her influence on the internet through her motivational posts and pictures.

“Lift weights. It’s one of the few pastimes that allow you to carry your work with you wherever you go. Have patience. Know that results will not come all at once – but they will come. Be consistent. Success is never a linear thing. You’ll have good and bad days. Bottom line – if you put the time in, you will be successful.”
