Your endeavor of Women’s Fitness & Fashion clothing line “Inspire by Eri Anton”- is a class apart. Tell us more about this venture of yours?
I am a business woman at heart and I love to design and wear fitness clothing so I created my brand and began designing and selling fitness clothing. This took me awhile to find material and designs I liked, finding someone to make the clothing and ship for me and then to create an online platform to sell them through. Even designing my logo took some time and many people just don’t realize how much work it takes to get something started. It has been a great learning experience for me and I am still trying to make it better.
You have done bold photo shoots for a number of fashion houses, more than 50 magazines and on your Instagram handle @erianton_. How you are so body confident and advice to your compatriots?
I think everyone needs to learn to be body confident no matter how you look. There is too much pressure to look like an ideal and that makes people body conscience. I am a woman and by nature we all have our body issues, but I follow what I say to everyone. Everyone has different genetics and we can’t all look the same. Accept yourself and your differences as you, you are beautiful and complete. Then work on yourself to be your best not trying to look like anyone, but the best version of yourself. Easier said than done I know, our society can be so cruel sometimes and this has created the mindset that we are not good enough. Learn to be accepting of yourself no matter what you look like and then work to get better. How you look does not define who you are or your character and that is more important no matter what label others want to place on you. Even I get judged and labeled by people who don’t even know me. It is sad but I can’t own how others feel that is their issue not mine.
I have also been fortunate to work with many great photographers and videographers who make me feel comfortable when shooting. I did some very bold photos and videos last year with Brett Seeley (@seeleyfoto) who made me feel so comfortable and was very professional. He was super creative and at the same time pushed me to be my best while making it fun. He is one on the best to work with if you want bold and exciting shoots.
Your idea of a perfect date?
Well first I don’t do dates lol. I think that puts too much pressure on the relationship and sets expectations. Perfect for me is just meeting people and connecting at various levels. For me it takes a while to get comfortable with someone and really allow myself to open up and connect at a deeper level. If I can become great friends with someone and feel good maybe I allow it to progress further but it is really hard to say because for me it has to be all about my emotional connection and how the person makes me feel. Once I have a deep connection I will allow myself to do one on one dates and be open for a relationship but it takes me awhile to get there. I am not into superficial relationships so just being friends to me is the perfect start.
What do you wish to say about the website Womenfitness.net and message for its visitors?
I love the focus on women and I think there should be a lot more of it. Women have different fitness needs than guys and where women are helping other women to be beautiful, accepting of themselves and learning to be their best I am thrilled. So Women’s Fitness I applaud your efforts and more women should be connecting with you and staying current with the your website and articles.
Today social media plays a vital role in putting your message across to your followers and fans. What is your message for the 1.1 million followers on Instagram?
My message is always one of humility and staying humble. I am not sure why so many people support me like they do but I am so thankful and appreciate every single one of them. It is my hope that in their interaction with me they experience my passion and heart and in some way I can make them better people. They have taught me so much and together it has become a special relationship with so many of them who message me regularly and offer so many kind words of inspiration. I try to answer every one of the messages but it is hard if not impossible sometimes.
