Erika Carter was born and raised in Waterford, CT. A life long athlete, she participated in dance, gymnastics and soccer. In High School, Erika was a member of the soccer and gymnastic team and was captain of both sports. Erika joined a gym at the age of 16 and has always been passionate about health and fitness. She was in her 20s when Erika became a certified personal trainer and started personal training, along with her full time job in Advertising as an Account Director. After the birth of her two daughters, she started teaching group fitness.
Erika has been in the fitness industry for 16+ years. Along with being a certified personal trainer, she also teaches cycling and is a group fitness instructor. Her specialty is barre instruction, with 7+ years of teaching its various formats. Erika lives in Atlanta, GA with her husband, Anson, her two daughters, Mikayla and Malia, two Great Danes and a French Bulldog. She loves travel, dining out and spending time with her family.
Ashton Harrison was born and raised in Gainesville, Florida, and will always call herself a "Florida Girl." She started dancing at the age of four and spent many hours of her adolescent years in dance classes and performances. Don’t be fooled by her Gainesville roots, as she attended Florida State University and graduated with a degree in Communications and a minor in Business. In college, with the absence of dance classes, she found her passion for fitness at FSU’s leach gym and fell in love with the workout classes.
After college, Ashton moved to Atlanta and began her career in sales and marketing in the healthcare field. Currently, she is the Marketing Engagement Manager for a healthcare startup called Trella Health. She began her side-hustle fitness career three years ago as a barre instructor for Flywheel Sports, a workout she truly loves due to her dance background. She still lives in Atlanta with her partner, Matt, and sweet lab, Tucker. Her favorite workout would have to be glutes and abs, and she is so excited to be an instructor with Erika Carter Fitness!
An Atlanta native, Britt grew up studying classical ballet. Britt discovered group fitness after returning from studying yoga in Thailand. Her passion for movement and music eventually led her to becoming a barre instructor. A strong supporter of life balance and diversification, Britt has managed to juggle a career in public accounting and group fitness for over six years. Britt fell in love with the technical knowledge, musicality, and personal connections that came from teaching FlyBarre at FlyWheel Sports.
In her personal life, Britt loves to paint, hang out with her Bernese Mountain Dog, Higgins, and travel. Britt is very excited to be part of Erika Carter Fitness!
