Our Healthy Hero: Erica Chard
Erica was born and raised in Michigan, where she began playing sports at the age of four. She has had a long history in competitive athletics, including gymnastics, soccer, tennis, basketball, volleyball, and softball. And, most recently, she raced bikes for a women’s domestic pro cycling team until 2013 when she retired from racing.
Erica has had a lifelong passion for nutrition and wellness, and in 2014, she left corporate America to focus on sharing that passion with others via her health coaching business. Erica now resides in North Carolina where she operates Whole You Holistic Health Coaching, coaches CrossFit, and runs a specialty foods company she owns called Fit Grub.
Erica holds a Health Coaching certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and is also a CrossFit Level One Trainer and CrossFit Endurance Trainer. When she’s not working, coaching, or training, Erica enjoys spending time with her husband and family, experimenting in the kitchen, reading, riding bikes, and traveling.
