Erica Mims Jeremy Scott Fitness Athlete of the Month
Where are you originally from?
I am originally from Chicago, but I have been in Arizona since 1986, and I am just starting to get used to the heat.
How long have you been coming to JSF?
I think it was the summer of 2012, my first day was really hot and I thought that I was going to throw up…because ropes + heat=nausea. I was really worried because I felt a little like I was auditioning for a spot at JSF and if I threw up, then I would be sent home…like American Idol, but fitness.
What was your fitness regimen prior to JSF and what made you choose/switch to JSF?
I was intermittently working out at home, with some videotapes…okay I will admit I have EVERY series from Beachbody, P90x, Turbofire, Insanity etc. They all got boring, and I needed something that would push me and made me accountable. I found Jeremy Scott Fitness as advertised on a tee-shirt. So, I looked it up on line and thought that he worked people out in his home garage. I decided to give it a try and was thrilled to get my life back because I didn’t have to work out for 1+ hours anymore!
What do you like best about JSF?
I love the workouts, the people, Monica, Kelly and of course Jeremy Scott. Part of what makes me show up everyday is that I know Jeremy gets up every morning and is there before me and if he can do then so can I, NO EXCUSES. I also love the moment I walk into that place and think “I got this” I realize that he has put together some Navy Seal style workout and I am humble again.
What do you like to do in your free time?
What free time, a lot of homework, and hang out with my family. I try to stay active and have a great group of people who workout at JSF to motivate me.
What’s your favorite cheat meal?
All the food I am not supposed to eat. Let’s say Candy, it’s not a meal but I love candy.
What is your advice for other members to get great results?
Once you finally stop making excuses for why you “can’t” and make it a priority to get the food part under control, you will be happier and healthier. IT WORKS IF YOU WORK FOR IT.
We are so proud of you and your progress Erica! Continue to bring in that kick ass attitude, we love it!!!
