“The program, for me, has been life-changing. It’s been amazing. I can’t thank Erica enough. I feel like I’ve never been this strong, I’ve never lost weight without trying (like this). It’s been really incredible. I felt really stuck before I started working with Erica. I was working out, but I wasn’t seeing any changes in my body at all. So, as soon as I start strength training with her, I felt empowered, I felt my muscles growing, I started dropping weight. It was just this incredible feeling of like ‘oh, so this is how my body works! This is everything it can do.’ I also live with a disability where I wear a prosthetic leg and she designed the program so I feel empowered and comfortable with it and can figure out new ways to move my body. Just by doing her program, I’ve been able to walk upstairs so much easier. It’s been really incredible to see the transformation in my daily life and the transformation in my workouts in general. Like, I actually look forward to working out now, and I never have before. So the group program has been life-changing for me and empowering and invigorating for me. And I really love all of the mindset and nutritional work as well we do as a group and I can’t thank Erica enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!”

"The difference in my body is astronomical. 3 months. 90 days. I’ve seen more of a body change eating regularly and eating big meals and enjoying myself thoughtfully with food than I ever did starving myself... I am finally enjoying working out. I’ve gotten so much more out of a 45 min lifting session than I’ve ever gotten out of an hour and half of cardio. For the first time, I’m not burnt out. Thank you for already changing my life. That’s really the truth of it. You’ve given me such a blessing in my life of letting me love myself again. And that rules."

"Working with Erica has been such a wake up call, in the best possible way. She emphasizes the importance of inner work, not just getting the visible physical results (though Erica definitely helps with those too; I lost 7 pounds in 2 months without going on any crazy fad diet!). While Erica has challenged me to step out of my comfort zone with things such as using a kettlebell, more importantly she is helping me to see the importance of prioritizing and valuing myself, helping me build boundaries that keep me happy and healthy.”

"If you want to achieve things you never dreamed possible, Erica is your girl. Erica practices everything she preaches.. Don’t let her size fool you! She’s a pint sized powerhouse, can outlift half the guys in the gym, and will do it with an adorable smile, handstand, and a celebratory high kick at the end. She’s a living example of the power of consistency."
“It’s really been amazing, I feel good… I’m not depriving myself of anything. But at the same time I’ve lost about 10 pounds... The most surprising part for me so far has been the ease of it. It feels sustainable. It doesn’t feel like I’ve done anything like, extraordinary to change. It just all felt very natural. I’m picking up weights and lifting things and squatting and pull ups and I’m like I didn’t know I could do those things. THAT’S FUN! Who would’ve thought?! So, it’s been really cool. I already feel so much better and more confident and, yeah, I’m just excited to see what else can happen.”
“I’ve lost 8 pounds. AND I lost a lot of inches! Like an inch or two EVERYWHERE! I’m maintaining that loss and I’m definitely not eating as strict as I was in the beginning. I feel like my relationship with food has completely changed and I don’t have that guilt anymore after meals. Which is big. I’m definitely stronger. When we first started, my husband had a pull up bar, and he said let’s see you do a pull up, and I just dangled. And yesterday I actually got halfway. I couldn’t even hang on the bar before! So much of what was causing me stress and anxiety and like extra things I was carrying around with me was surrounded by weight, body image, and my eating, and I feel like that’s so much brain space, when we’re able to work through that, so it feels like a therapy session.”
“I’m officially down 20 pounds! I’ve been working with Erica for awhile, but didn’t consistently start working out two days a week until about 6 months ago. Thanks, Erica! First pic in the stitch is from July 4th, the shorts hardly fit on my body and now they’re falling off. Such a good feeling”
"I was feeling so insecure and sheltered with my body because of pain and injuries. I went from not really understanding where I was weak and why, to understanding the areas of my body that truly are my foundation and understanding how to not only warm them up and work them out, but then taking that and applying it to my rehearsal setting where I’ve used a lot of that in my warm ups to go into rehearsals which makes me feel stronger in my rehearsals and my work which then makes my worker better because I’m altogether more confident When I started I had zero upper body strength. I remember doing push ups on a deep incline and now I’m on the floor! I can show up for myself 3 times a week for a 40-45min including warmup shindig and still see results. I didn’t think that’s what exercise was. I thought I needed someone to be tough on me because I’m really tough on me. and I have learned what I need sometimes is someone to be loving and understanding and encouraging. It’s nice to work with somebody who approaches what they do with passion and love and encouragement and not necessarily with the whip. What I think is great about you is you are discerning and can tell what is helpful in certain moments and other moments I see what someone is going through and I see that I just need to be encouraging. So, yeah, thank you for that."

"Do not be hesitant to try online coaching, especially if you’re intimidated by the gym. I worked out from home and Erica made it as comfortable as possible. Erica helped me and supported me every step of the way. She loves what she does and it’s so evident in her work. Erica has her online coaching business running smoothly. The process is pretty simple with a chat feature, workout schedule (with videos) and uploading videos and getting video feedback from her was also such a big help (that’s what sold me). Erica wants to see you reach your goals. She responds in a timely manner and will always give you the science and reasoning for why she has you doing the things you’re doing. To me this was such a big help to get the ball rolling on fitness. I’m glad I did this rather than months working on fitness videos and not gaining results. I learned a lot about myself and what I am capable of doing in this process."
