Erica Dore beforeIt has taken me my whole life to have that "ah ha" moment.  Generations of yo-yo dieters and poor body image needed to be stopped! After giving birth to my second daughter in December 2012, I knew we had to break the cycle.  Six weeks after my daughter was born, I hit the gym...HARD! I started off by going to Body Pump, Body Attack, and Body Combat.  That helped me get some of the weight off, but after my sister-in-law convinced me to take the Bootcamp and Special Forces classes, I knew I would make my goals.  At first, I was winded, sore, achy, and completely beat up, but I knew it was exactly what I needed to help me lose the weight.  Gina kept me accountable with weekly weigh ins.   Each week, whether I lost weight or gained weight, she talked me through what I did that week to get that outcome.  There was no judgment, just encouragement.  Each trainer in the group training classes pushed me to my limits.  Just when I thought I couldn't lift any more, they pushed me to add another plate, go up to the next weight, and do 5 more reps.  For the first time in my life, I'm happy with my body.  My confidence is higher and I feel like I have a lot more energy.  I feel like I am positive role model for my girls now.
