ERIKA LYNN MCKELVEY
My name is Erika Lynn McKelvey, owner and Master Trainer of Fly High Bungee Fitness. Growing up as a competitive gymnast I loved to twirl my body through the air. However, as a kid and all the hours I spent in the gym per week I did not know I was torturing my body. After several injuries, two knee surgeries later and overstretched ligaments in my back I was forced to quit the sport that I loved. Now in my adult years I have struggled to find a workout that pushed my limits but does not hurt my body. Running hurt my knees and just the thought of lifting heavy weights hurt my back; plus I needed a workout that was fun! I did not enjoy going to a gym and moving from treadmill to another piece of stationary equipment. Watching the bungee fitness workout develop in Europe over the past few years, I dreamed of doing this workout. I realized there had to be more people like me that needed a fun workout that did not hurt the joints and decided to open one in Charleston, SC!
I am so excited to fly with you or even help you open a studio of your own!
