One of the most underrated jobs in Hollywood is the celebrity personal trainer. They’re the reason the stars that we admire stay in such great iconic shape.
In this article, we’ll be sharing some facts about one of the more popular celebrity trainers out there: Erin Oprea.
Erin is known mostly for her work with Carrie Underwood. However, there’s much more to her than that. Here we’ll be discussing some lesser known facts about Erin and why she is a woman to be admired.
1. She’s a Veteran
One of the reasons why Erin Oprea may be so badass could be down to her experience in the US Marine Corps.
At the age of 20, Erin signed up for the Marines to do her country proud. She did, and served for a total of 9 years.
During those 9 years, Oprea did 2 tours of Iraq and even led the first female infantry platoon in a warzone.
What an absolute hero!
2. She Goes Way Back with Carrie
One of Erin Oprea’s top rated clients is Carrie Underwood. Given the shape that Carrie is in, it’s easy to see how good Erin is at her job!
However, working with Carrie isn’t some new thing for Erin. She’s had the American Idol’s back from as early as 2007.
3. It Seems Erin has Always Been Destined to Be a Personal Trainer
Although she has a more-than-impressive resume from her time serving her country, we think he passion for personal training deserves some credit too.
Before she even joined the marines, Erin Oprea worked hard and got certified as a personal trainer. Even as a teenager she showed promise and passion for fitness.
4. She Cares About the Community
One of the great things about Oprea is that she is not afraid to give back. Working with fellow personal trainer Shawn Booth, Erin puts on a group workout even in several major cities all over the US.
Just some of the main cities she and Shawn hit include New York, Dallas, Philadelphia, Boston and more.
The program is known as CitySTRONG and it’s definitely worth checking out.
5. She is a Proud Soccer Mom!
Ever since she was a kid, Erin has been playing soccer. Although it isn’t her day job she still takes it mighty seriously.
Fortunately her family are just as obsessed as she is, with her husband and two sons also being huge fans of the game.
She proudly turns up to their events and will even workout on the sidelines while watching them play. Erin doesn’t just teach fitness, she practically lives and breathes it!
6. Jennifer Nettles is also her client!
When it comes to Erin and celebrities, she’s mostly known for her work with Carrie Underwood. However, Carrie isn’t the only celebrity on Oprea’s books, she also trains country music start Jennifer Nettles.
Erin played a major role when Jennifer needed it most – after having a baby. Oprea was able to help Nettles by training her back into shape and helping her to burn off the baby weight.
7. Erin Oprea: Fitness Author
Not only does Erin hold a great reputation as a marine and a personal trainer, she’s also a fantastic author.
Erin Oprea wrote ‘The 4 x 4 Diet, 4 Key Foods, 4 Minute Workouts’. In the book Erin shows you how to cut down on the main foods that can ruin a diet: sugar, starch, sodium and alcohol.
On top of that, the book also shares 4 minute tabata workouts which can help reduce belly fat, improve your definition and feel better in yourself.
It’s available online and in most major retailers.
