Tune in as I chat with Erica Austin, founder of StrongHer. StrongHer is a trauma-informed functional fitness program for survivors of domestic violence. She has advocated for the safety of women and children for ten years and has testified in front of the Child and Family Law Committee as well as participated in testimony in front of the Senate that made changes to NH RSA 461:A. The law provides better protection for children and protective parents during cases of suspected abuse. In 2019, Erica was interviewed by the Associated Press regarding the success of specific NH programs that benefit domestic violence survivors. Erica saw a need to offer a safe environment for survivors of trauma and abuse to physically process the traumatic events that they experienced as a way to heal. Erica is a fitness coach specializing in women, trauma and pregnancy and postpartum. She holds a Bachelors Degree from Rivier University and has participated in 30 hours of Crisis Intervention Training through Bridges Domestic and Sexual Violence Support. She is a Level One CrossFit Trainer and a certified BirthFit Coach as well as a personal trainer.
