Erin Mercado

After spending years of practicing calestethic training, plyometric training, core training, and strength training, Erin Mercado and her husband, Alejandro, were called to plant a seed in the Southern MD area and start a fitness ministry named, ” Purpose Filled Fitness” (PFF). Their mission is to help those in need develop a healthier lifestyle and those with a passion for fitness, to develop personal growth, both spiritually and physically, and be victorious in accomplishing their goals- however big or small! Her personal testimony has led her to be able to share her fitness journey and walk with the Lord with many women. Each woman has gained insight from one another’s weaknesses but has also learned from one another’s strengths. Part of the lord’s vision for their ministry is to identify and relate to the emotional connection that so many women have with food and redirecting that focus to positive thinking, relying on scripture for support, guidance, direction and wisdom, and applying scientific and nutritional guidelines; working together to push through and help move past that stronghold. Erin also knows that to be consistent in this endeavor, women will have to make positive changes in their lifestyle choices to help them achieve their personal best, which in turn will build self-esteem, confidence, and long- lasting good habits. She hopes to be able to continue working towards meeting her own personal best as a new wife and mother and continuing to help mentor those who God brings into her life. Her ministry’s motto is: “Raise the Bar, Rise for Glory.”
