Podcast #20-18 John McGough- Elevate Fusion Fitness



John McGough (in his own words):
“Hockey was my main sport growing up. I also wrestled for 1 year. I decided to start lifting weights in 10th grade and did that for many years and also go into taekwondo.  When I was 21, I decided to leave my job as a golf course management worker and go to school for fitness at NPTI in Cleveland.  I finished school and started working for Anytime Fitness, where I was a manager/trainer for 8 years before teaming up with a few others to open Elevate Fusion Fitness in Lawrenceville.  In my free time, I mountain bike with friends and play in a band.”

Podcast #18-18 Bend the Bridge- Erin Grace



Erin Grace (in her own words):
“I am a 200 hour registered yoga instructor and have been practicing yoga for 16 years.  I received my teacher training through Yoga Yoga in Austin, TX in 2007. Since then I have taught and practiced in Austin, Northern Virginia, and Pittsburgh.  I have a specialization in prenatal yoga, and love to teach a variety of styles here in Bridgeville, where I opened Bend the Bridge Yoga in July of 2016. Outside of being immersed in yoga (and loving every bit of it), I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughters and 2 dogs.  Yoga has played a significant role in guiding me through balancing self, family and work.  I am grateful to share that with others and teach what I love.”
