Hi! I’m Erin Melito, founder and owner of Body.Mind.Potential. I decided to start Body.Mind.Potential out of a sheer calling and passion for helping people reach their full potential by gaining control over their physical body and their mindset. My mission is simple – “To inspire and empower people to reach their full potential through the design and delivery of balanced fitness, nutrition, and wellness programs.” I believe whole-heartedly that everyone is extraordinary and that many are living day-to-day without fully tapping into their magnificence. I also believe that the best and most effective way to do this is through a strong, nourished, and healthy body and mind.
How did I form this philosophy? I spent much of my life going through the motions and feeling as though there was an untapped energy inside. I experiencedyears of turmoil about my body, having struggled with anorexia, bulimia, and binge-eating. The years of undernourishment, over-nourishment, and just plain abuse to my body severely impacted my mind and my ability to fully tap into this energy. Although I experienced much success in my life – two college degrees, a successful career as a corporate trainer, a wonderful marriage to an amazing life partner – I could only imagine what it would be like to feel energized and passionate about life every day. I finally reached a breaking point and decided that I needed to find out how to unleash this energy!
I had a vision of myself at my very best. This vision included a strong, healthy body full of energy! It also included a clear, focused, and positive mind! And lastly, there was a zest for life that I’d never felt before! Once I knew where I wanted to be, I began taking actions towards that vision and that is when my life changed forever. I want to help you take the actions you need to feel as vibrant and energized as I do about life!
I combine my experiences and passion for overall health and well-being with my knowledge and education to help you create and design your best balanced life. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Therapeutic Recreation and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and have worked as a corporate trainer in various business settings teaching and coaching individuals and teams to optimize performance, manage change, and reach their goals. I also am a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, a Certified Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition, and a national level natural figure competitor.
