Erin Oprea & Kelsea Ballerini Sweat It Out For ACM Lifting Lives

Celebrity trainer Erin Oprea and her superstar client Kelsea Ballerini got muscles firing under the Las Vegas sunshine Saturday last morning (April 14th) during the first-ever “ACM Workout for a Cause: Erin Oprea Unleashed Tour”, raising $5,000 for ACM’s philanthropic arm Lifting Lives.

In front of an enthusiastic crowd of participants, Oprea and Ballerini led an hour-long workout featuring some of Oprea’s signature exercises that keep clients including Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves, and more in peak-performance shape.

Attendees re-fueled with samples from Vital Proteins and BlenderBottle, and trainers from local fitness club TruFusion led an engaging warm up. After the event, VIP ticket holders enjoyed a guilt-free happy hour to mingle with Oprea while sampling sweet treats from Russell Stover and sips from Sonoma-Cutrer wine.

A nine-year veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, Oprea made history when she was appointed to lead the first female platoon attached to the infantry in a war zone. The fitness expert serves on People’s Health Squad and her calorie-torching workouts have been featured on Good Morning America and E!, as well as in Women’s Health, Self, Vogue, Glamour, and more. Her revolutionary fitness and nutrition guide, The 4×4 Diet, is available now.  For more information, visit
