CLAUDIA ERIKSON

U OF S HUSKIES WOMEN’S SOCCER PLAYER

My name is Claudia Erikson and I’m a defender on the U OF S Huskies Women’s Soccer Team. Like many, I started my soccer career as a Timbit when I was 3 years old. In early 2017, after a couple years of significant pain and discomfort, I was diagnosed with a stress fracture in my pelvis, along with bursitis and tendinosis in both my hips. For 12 months following the diagnosis, I was only able to participate in low intensity activity. I was frustrated and disappointed. I thought it was the end of my athletic career. It was then when I decided to send an e-mail to IGNITE ATHLETICS hoping they would be able to meet with me and build a program suited to rehabilitate my injury and get me back to the game of soccer. Luckily, this e-mail connected me with Donovan Dale. I can honestly say sending that e-mail was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The team at IGNITE ATHLETICS has taught me so many things, not only workout related, but about myself as well. Donovan and the team motivated me, believed in me, and supported me through the highs and lows of my rehab and continue to do so today. Truly, I can’t thank IGNITE ATHLETICS enough for all of the support they have provided me with. #ignitefamily
