First of all, let me say that I’ve been in fairly good shape for most of my life. I’ve always had some sort of fitness in my life, but for the last year or so, I’ve had competing in the back of my mind … never really knowing if I would actually do it, or if I could get lean enough to step on stage. I had tried several times to get that “look” of a figure contestant, and I came close, but never really got to the point that I felt I would be comfortable on stage. I knew that if I ever decided to take that jump, that I’d hire Erik to take me through those final weeks.

Well, I did it!! And it was an amazing experience all the way around. I needed something concrete that I could follow and KNOW that it would take me to the point I needed to be. I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. My plan left out nothing … I had everything I needed in order to complete my goal. And most importantly, I loved my look when we were done. To me, that was what the whole journey was about, and in that respect, it could not have turned out better. I would recommend Erik to absolutely everyone, whether it be someone that wants to drop a few pounds and feel better about themselves, to the highest level competitor. I trust him wholeheartedly. He is not only kind and encouraging, but also has more knowledge in this field than anyone I’ve run across.

Originally, this was going to be a one shot deal, but I enjoyed training with Erik so much, that I’ve decided to continue through the winter and then enter another show in the spring. I can’t wait to see what the results will bring. Thank you, Erik.
