Graham Ervin is a mover and shaker in Charleston’s event and hospitality scene who finds the strength to slay the day after her morning workouts at Rhapsody CrossFit in Charleston.

What is your story?

I was born and raised in South Carolina with a BA from the College of Charleston (2005) and an MA from the University of Georgia (2011).

Living in Charleston for more than 18 years, I’ve run the gamut of special events, marketing and hospitality. Currently, I’m the Director of Private Event Sales for The Cedar Room in the Cigar Factory, Mercantile and Mash and The Riley Park Club (part of The Indigo Road Restaurant Group).

What brought you to Rhapsody CrossFit?

I wanted a change in my workout routine. I was a competitive bodybuilder for four years and my weekly split workouts were no longer motivating me to train. Rhapsody member Moe Draz invited me in for a class – six whole months after that initial invite, I actually took a class and haven’t looked back. 

What have you gotten out of your experience with Rhapsody CrossFit? 

Community. It’s so much more than a workout. It is being a part of a group of like-minded individuals that show up everyday to challenge you, cheer you on and motivate you to be a better version of yourself. 

How does Rhapsody arm you to be better at what you do outside of the box – mentally and/or physically? 

Starting my mornings at Rhapsody sets the tone for my day. Mentally, I am alert. I know that if I am strong enough to deadlift, run and box jump through a one hour class before 7AM, then there is no stopping me at crushing my inbox or sales goals that day at work. 

Physically, I am a stronger, happier and healthier person inside and out.
