"Being a mother of two young children, working, and still being able to be consistent with her workouts is the reason why Erica is our athlete of the month. Since joining in October 2021, Erica has been one of our most consistent members averaging 4 visits per week. Over the past seven months Erica has quietly improved her fitness capacity, and has made amazing transformations. Erica approaches every movement, and workout with a big smile and with a can do attitude. When in class she doesn’t say much, but works her tail off creating the best version of herself day in and day out. Keep smiling and working hard! Congratulations!"
