6 – Erin Carson on Training for Life

Boulder Images June 2015Welcome to Episode 6 of Run This World. Today’s episode features Erin Carson, former pro athlete, “Trainer to the Tri Stars,” owner of RallySport in Boulder, and generally awesome person.


Before we get started, let me lay a little framework. Full disclosure: Erin is the owner of RallySport and I’m a member. But that’s not why she’s on the show. She’s here because Erin is a visionary and is changing the world with her philosophy on training the body. I met Erin many years ago but I didn’t enlist her services until I got pregnant and decided I wanted to work with someone who understood what pregnant women athletes wanted. Not a touchy feely program but someone who would keep me strong and help open me up. During that time, I realized that I was in the presence of someone very special, one of the most positive people I’d ever know, and now I have the chance to share her with you!


Here’s what we cover in today’s episode:


  • Erin’s philosophy on being a greatboss and leader
  • The importance of relationships in business and life
  • Visualization
  • EC Fit Boulder’s 5-step program toward getting stronger, injured less and racing faster
  • Why getting loaded is not the way to go
  • Flexible goals
  • Why “Doing the Best You Can” is important
  • Who should be in your provider network


Erin’s quote of the day: “If you can finish and say, ‘I did the best I could,’ then you win. That’s winning.”
