Erika

Patient Leader

Erika is a true inspiration to others. She uses her personal story as her motivation to help others. Her classes are not only fun but also educational. She teaches you the right way to lift weights and the way to do certain exercises. Erika doesn't just teach the class, she works out with the class. Her workouts are challenging but fun and when you want to give up she says something to push you further. Even after class she sticks around for questions or just to simply talk. Erika always has a positive attitude especially when it comes to health. I am not only blessed to have her as a gym instructor but also a good friend. I am glad to be able to nominate her for such an awesome award!!  — ShaCara
