Erica Sigel has held a passion for health, nutrition and exercise since she was in her early teens and has now made it her life goal to share that with others. Moving from Miami, FL to attend University of Colorado in 2004, she has since called Boulder, CO home. She founded BARE Training because she is dedicated to supporting and empowering people with various health issues, illnesses or those who have been through a big life shift. Due to personal experience, Erica knows how overwhelming, complicated and frustrating these issues and feelings can be. She’s devoted to helping others find Balance, Achieve their goals, Reclaim their bodies and Empower themselves so they can simply feel amazing from the inside out.
Due to chronic illness and her treatment in 2008, Erica gained 100 lbs. Feeling ill, lost and overwhelmed, she dedicated herself to a personal training and nutrition regiment. She not only lost the 100 lbs but also gained a new understanding and perspective on health. She understands the immense importance and necessity of having a support network when your life feels so chaotic. She realizes what assets exercising and eating smart are to her life and feels compelled to teach and coach others on a healthful journey.
In 2013, Erica and her business partner, Nicole Irlbeck of Restoration Fitness, opened IAM Fitness Studio. IAM is a small fitness studio located in East Boulder. Erica and Nicole wanted to create a place where they could bring their hearts to work and share their love of fitness with others. They have a great desire to see everyone love their body and support them in reaching their goals in a clean, friendly, non-intimidating environment. IAM offers a huge variety of small group classes and niche personal training with some of the very best coaches in Boulder.
You can find Erica hiking almost everyday that the weather allows; she loves applying what your body learns in the gym to outdoor activities. She has competed in many local races including the Rugged Maniac and Bolder Boulder. Erica is also an avid cook and has spent years working with nutritionists and taking cooking classes. She enjoys coming up with healthy, delicious meals and can be found cooking up a storm frequently with her dog and kitty at home.
Erica’s goal is to help her clients believe in themselves and live life to the fullest. She wants them to realize their potential and dare to BARE!
