Personal Note from Erica Stenz, Founder of WeShred:
“I have some exciting news: over the past couple of months, I launched my own nutrition program, WeShred - inclusive for all levels (workouts not required), ages (18 yrs - 80 yrs) and all genders.
The “We” in WeShred is for community, and the “Shred” represents taking action, onboarding strength, and shifting what YOU feel is important.
WeShred is the culmination of the nutrition knowledge I have gained during my Exercise and Health Science studies at UCSB and coaching thousands of clients over the past 12 years. With daily nutrition and fitness guidance from me, and a community committed to a month together, we make small changes which produce long-lasting results.”

Brighton's life-long passion began with ballet classes at 5 years old. As a teenager, attending aerobics classes at the local gym with her Mom, she fell in love with fitness. After receiving her ACE Fitness certification, she started her own outdoor "bootcamp" in GGP and the Presidio. Using the environment as the gym, she led group classes on the sand at Baker Beach and the batteries on the bluff by GGB. Wanting to help her clients fuel their bodies healthfully for all the physical work they were doing, she got her certification in holistic nutrition with an emphasis on plant based nutrition for athletes, at Bauman College in Berkeley. She ended up opening Nourish Cafe in 2015, a healthy plant based cafe in San Francisco. They now have 2 locations. Their mission is to have high quality ingredients, no white sugar or flour, nothing deep fried. WeShred is a nutrition program that nourishes your entire self, body and mind.
Brigton's goals are to support others, building confidence and strength and shredding the negative.
She is so excited to support you with whatever it is you want to shred.
