Who is Erik Ledin?
Erik Ledin holds numerous degrees and certifications in his chosen field, including a Bachelors of Kinesiology (Hons) from McMaster University and a Bachelors of Education from the University of Windsor. He received his certification as a Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and a Personal Trainer (CPT) from the National Strength & Conditioning Association, and received his Sports Nutritionist certification from the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN). He is also a Certified Kinesiologist from the Ontario Kinesiology Association (OKA).
Erik Ledin has been helping fitness enthusiasts, athletes, and physique competitors achieve their fitness goals for ten years. He has taken his passion for bodybuilding, fitness, and nutrition to the next level with Lean Bodies Consulting, providing hundreds of clients with individualized programs tailored to their specific goals.
“I began Lean Bodies Consulting with the goal to provide clients with individually tailored training and nutrition programs in order to help them realize their physique goals. To me it’s more about fitting people with a program that fits their lifestyle, dietary preferences and goals; more so than having an expensive personal trainer at a gym that counts off the repetitions to everyone in the same way.”
While attending McMaster, Erik began his career consulting for local bodybuilding competitors. After graduating, he went to work for MuscleTech Research & Development/Iovate Health Sciences as a head nutritionist, as well as a strength and conditioning specialist. After training two brides on WE TV’s reality show, Bridezilla, Erik was named the official 2006 Mrs. America State Pageant trainer, training nearly 20 state pageant winners for the national competition. It was during this time that Erik Ledin’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to found Lean Bodies Consulting.
“I really enjoy seeing people realize their fitness goals and learn how to take control of their bodies. When you know you’ve been a part of someone achieving a goal they’ve been wanting for a long time, it’s very rewarding. What makes my work so much fun is the application of science to real life situations, problem solving, successfully troubleshooting plateaus and paving the way to success.”
