Erin Brenton has believed in the possibility of transformation ever since she transformed her own life, marred by tragedy, into one of health and joy. When she was 9, she and her sister, Heather, were traveling door to door selling Camp Fire Girls of America items when the pair were struck by an underage drunk driver. The crash cost Heather her life and left Erin with severe head and leg trauma. Supported by her parents, friends, and eventually her own loving husband and kids, Erin learned to deal with the physical repercussions of that accident. To honor her sister’s memory, she decided to help others find their own health and happiness through exercise and support. To that end, she started Girls on the Go to make a place where people of all ability levels can enjoy physical activity and strive for healthier bodies.
She and her team of instructors now fill each week with a variety of original fitness classes, from women’s boxing to men’s speed and agility training. Erin also leads one-on-one personal-training sessions and the Driveway Divas fitness program, for which an instructor comes to clients’ homes for small-group training.
