Unfortunately, with all these activities, Ericka struggled with her health and weight. From her adolescence to young adulthood, Ericka struggled with obesity and a myriad of health issues. By the age of 17, she weighed in at 300 pounds and struggled to continue her activities in varsity sports. It took a brutally honest conversation with one of her physicians to realize that if she continued to make the same choices, her quality of life was going to continue to suffer. Changing her relationship with food was the first thing she decided needed to change, and has been her focus for almost 15 years now.

Understanding how fitness and nutrition go hand in hand, as well as finding a passion in Jui Jitsu, weight lifting and enjoying fitness challenges, has helped her to lose over 100 pounds. Now that she is a mother of two, she is even more determined to continue to grow and learn to be the best version of herself, so that her children do not struggle with the same issues she has. Ericka knows that she can relate with many people that feel stuck, confused and frustrated with their own health issues. She believes that she can help people understand that it takes a mental shift to focus on yourself, your needs and what steps need to be taken to help you work towards and become the best version of yourself.
