Erin is amazing! I don’t think I could have finished my second book without her workouts. The movement and mantras gave me the bursts of energy I needed!
Someone should warn you, Erin doesn’t just help you transform your body. She’ll help you transform your life! Shrink session is a full body and spirit makeover. Change has never felt so good!
The first time I tried Shrink Session, I was blown away by how empowered I felt when I left (and how sore I was the next day!).Erin is one of the most dynamic people I know. Her energy and positive attitude are contagious. She combines a body, brain and soul workout that leaves you feeling strong mentally and physically. Not only do I worry less, but I am truly excited about all that lies before me. Erin gave me the confidence and courage to believe anything is possible. She also taught me that when situations don’t turn out the way you envisioned or hoped, that doesn’t mean they are bad, it just means that you will find happiness in so many other ways. And often, the new route is much better!
I felt amazing after my first Shrink Session class! Re-energized, not just physically, but mentally. I remember rushing home, finally ready to start taking actions on all these projects I’d been stalling on.Since taking Shrink Session and working with Erin, things in my career sphere have totally blossomed. I turned a huge corner in the way that I approach auditioning, I signed with amazing representation, and the web series that I wrote and created with my best friend was profiled in the New York Times! I can’t wait to see what happens next. Shrink Session leaves you feeling empowered, excited, and full of belief in yourself. And also really sweaty.
I’m a huge fan of Erin Stutland’s Shrink Session — it is truly a one-of-a-kind mind & body experience.I’ll be honest, the first time I did it, I wanted to leave after 10 minutes. It was so hard! But after I mentally pushed myself through it, I felt like a million dollars. Now I can’t stop coming back for more.
If you want fast results, Shrink Session is hands-down the best cardio workout I can think of. I guarantee that you’ll have a blast!
Normally, I’m easily bored when I work out and I often find myself looking at the clock to see how long the suffering has to continue. During Shrink Session that didn’t occur once. In fact, I felt like I was in that state of flow that only occurs when you are sufficiently challenged and safe at the same time. I forgot about time and place and genuinely enjoyed every second of it– even the moments where I hit my physical limits and where my natural instinct would be to take a break or slow down. Erin encouraged me to push through and give just a little more. I did and it felt great. I left the class feeling uplifted, strong and empowered.Shrink Session is hard work, but you’ll have such a great time that you won’t notice. Erin is the first person who has been able to show me that breaking a sweat can be both fun and worthwhile. Pretty amazing, huh?
I have heard about runners feeling euphoria when the endorphins kick in, but never felt anything but tired while exercising. But with Erin, I get it.I’m a chubby girl and I hate gyms; they are cold, lonely and all about how you look. ERIN’S CLASS IS THE ANTI-GYM; class is filled with inspiration, hope, and light, and is about how you feel. ERIN IS A FEARLESS LEADER who CHALLENGES you to do your BEST, no matter what. There is something magical about the physical exertion that makes the affirmations become one with you. And you never want to give it up.
I lost another 20 lbs because I worked through what I thought were my limits. I feel fantastic! I didn’t know that my body could feel and look this way. If you feel deep down inside that little burning question, “is there more?” then you should definitely take class with Erin.When I came in to Erin’s class, I was just really looking for a good workout. I wasn’t expecting how much my life would change. Erin in her graceful and loving way makes you see pass your limits (or what you thought were your limits). Erin helped me find and bring out my warrior spirit and that warrior has helped me find grace and love in my challenges.
Working with Erin has helped me to be a more courageous, prosperous, loving, daring, engaging, compassionate, and fearless person. She has helped me know and live in a way that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. Her talent and knowledge can help you unleash that spirit in a way that you can live the life of your dreams.
When I first agreed to take Erin Stutland’s Shrink Session class at Chelsea Studios, I knew I must be crazy. I was going to dance – in public – and say affirmations out loud at the same time. To say that the whole idea of the class was way out of my comfort zone is an understatement.Now I can’t say that I left the class any more coordinated than when I walked in, but I can say that I left with something even better. Erin’s exciting, warm, passionate, and compassionate approach to fitness freed me of any insecurities and inhibitions I brought with me to class. And this feeling has continued long after I walked out. Am I still the proud owner of two left feet? Yup. But am I afraid to shake my booty and tell the world how awesome I feel doing it? Never again!
I will admit, the first few minutes of the workout were awkward. I felt silly and very glad no one was home to witness me repeating affirmations out loud.BUT then something happened… the positive and empowering affirmations actually had a direct impact on my performance and motivation. A few days later I even caught myself repeating the mantras while riding my bike to keep me peddling strong up a hill “It’s my time…”
In the past my inner conversation sounded like: “aw I’m too hot, I am tired, is this over yet, this is soo long, I hate working out, I have other more important things to do, blah, blah, blah”. A conditioning that left me feeling weighed down and resentful.
On the flip side the affirmations create an empowering dialogue that result in me feeling strong, capable, focused and motivated. Erin’s Shrink Session workout is a game changer for anyone whom like me has a negative inner dialogue when it comes to exercise and life in general.
That having fibromyalgia and chronic myofascial pain make it very hard for me to work out on a consistent basis because the soreness can last for weeks.Listening to Erin and her affirmations boosts my mood and my spirit and gives me so much energy that it enables me to do what I can even if I am unable to finish the entire workout. She really is an inspiration and has helped me change my attitude to know that I can accomplish things that I never thought I could. I really lover her workouts and will continue to wait impatiently (lol) for new ones!!!
Your fitness affirmations has boosted up my motivation to want to do things I never thought possible. When I feel a tiny bit negative, I go on your Shrink Session site and do a workout to get rid of that edge off. Plus, I feel great physically and mentally.I have told friends about you and your amazing workout, so they feel inspired to follow suit. I loved the fact that I can inspire others to do something to change their lives. I am so ever grateful and if I never found you from Daily Candy, I doubt I would be the person I am today.
A LOT has happened to me since I began shrinking, and one of the consistencies has been Erin’s support and motivation (via Shrink, and a gracious response email she wrote to me at the beginning of the year).You see, I was an attorney in Chicago, with a dream of starting my own bakery. After I paid off my student loans and had some great legal experience under my belt, I quit my law firm job, moved to Brattleboro, Vermont, and opened Little City Baking Company in March.
It turns out – my “dream” wasn’t quite the life I wanted. In October, I made a decision that was much harder than the one to quit my law firm life for my dream – it was to quit my dream to go back to the law firm life. Because I actually liked being a lawyer more than I liked being a small business owner! Needless to say, this has been quite a year. I used the positivity of Erin and Shrink to get me through each stage. The meaning of the mantras changed at each stage, but they still have the same motivating effect.
I was prepared for an ass-kicking workout (although it is my FAVORITE of all the ass-kicking workouts I’ve done)…what was unexpected and what has brought me such joy is the COMMUNITY that Erin was created, centered on the singularly joyful and authentic vibe she gives off.I am continually refreshed, challenged, and inspired by the Shrink community-and so grateful that it is a part of my life!!
When Erin first explained what we were about to do, I cringed inside. As I came of age in the mid to late ’80s, the era of the affirmation, I have this built in knee-jerk, run-the-other-way response to all things cheesy self-help. But there I was and it was simply too late to walk out.Let me tell you that I cannot begin to say how grateful am that I stayed. In that class I remembered that the essence of affirmation isn’t about cheesy self-help but about shouting from the rooftops and believing in our hearts that we’re worthy of our dreams. In that class I found a power inside myself I had forgotten existed. In that class I let go of baggage that I’d been lugging around for years. Seriously. For real. And I got my ass kicked with a killer work out to boot.
“I found myself within the first class feeling more free than I had ever felt while working out. After the “high” from the cardio wore off, the buzz from the affirmations was still going.Since I started attending Shrink Session classes I’ve seen more changes than I’d ever seen in my life. I manifested a new and exciting job, I’ve lost about 15 lbs and I have calmness about my life that I never got with anti-anxiety medication. The most powerful thing that I’ve gained from Erin and Shrink Session is the confidence that I can change my life for the better.
Erin Stutland is THE best fitness guru I’ve ever worked with in New York City, and her expertise goes far beyond fitness…Erin is a powerhouse of fitness mastery, spiritual guidance, inspiration, and support. Her classes are not only physically challenging and demanding, but they are jam-packed with mind-shifting techniques and new ideas and practices to expand the body and the mind. How often do you get to take an intense cardio workout class that challenges your beliefs? In the last few years, Erin and her classes have taken me on an unexpected body/ mind/ soul journey, and I am forever grateful for that. I think of her workouts as moving poetry, and they will shake anyone to the core (and booty) who is open to receive the goodness! Taking her classes weekly has become a necessity in my life. And yes… a workout class (if it’s as good as this) can become habitual and necessary! Girl’s got skills!
