Congratulations to our Dancing Queen, Erika Lizbet, for being chosen as Coach-Of-The-Week! Read further to find out what made Erika become a Fit Coach and how she was finally able to accomplish one of her greatest passions: teach people how to dance while inspiring them to lead a healthy active lifestyle!
In late October, I was searching for a place or a new way to help my daughter lose weight. That’s when I was introduced to FitClub24 and to a new lifestyle that will change not only my life but my family’s as well.
Seeing the way things are done at the Club, how everybody is so friendly and the motivation in each person, I knew this was the right place to make a change.
When I saw the testimonials of the people who were on the nutrition program and how much they’ve changed, I realized it was possible for my family and I to get results as well.
First, I encouraged my daughter Rebekah to jump on the nutrition program because I was worried for her weight. After seeing her getting amazing results by combining proper nutrition with exercises, I decided to join and also get in the best shape of my life! The positive energy at the Club is contagious and that’s what makes FitClub24 what it is: a community of happy people! It’s so unique that it’s impossible to find it in any given gym or fitness center.
Once I’ve gotten results, I discovered it was possible for me to help others and inspire them to lead a healthy active lifestyle. I became a Fit Coach and I love the feeling that I get when I help people reach their health goals. The satisfaction of seeing a smile on their face is priceless.
For many years, I wanted to become a Zumba instructor which was one of my biggest passions. Time passed and I thought I wasn’t ready to take the next step until one day Mark Lachance and Sean Lewis approached me. They offered me the opportunity to teach a fitness class that involves dancing. That’s how Latin Fusion was born! Loving to dance it’s one thing, but having to guide a crowd and make them follow your steps is a different thing. It was at that moment that I told myself it was time to get out of my comfort zone and start a new challenge in my life! And I did it!
Now it’s been more than 4 months since Latin Fusion started and it has brought me so much joy and pride. It’s an amazing feeling to have FitClubbers coming to see me after class to tell me how much they love the sweat, the energy and the songs! What’s even more rewarding it’s hearing them share how they feel after the workout and how much fun they have! After hearing these words coming from different people, I knew I was ready to become a Zumba instructor and completed my certification last March. I continue to teach Latin Fusion every Monday at 5:45pm and also Zumfit on Thursday at 5:45pm, which involves more intense choreographies.
As a Fit Coach, I would love to inspire my team to achieve incredible results by following the 80% nutrition, 20% exercise and 100% mindset rule. I hope in the near future to become a full-time Fit Coach, sharing my passion to others and inspire them to do the same.
