    I have had the pleasure of taking Barre and Yoga classes from Erika. Even during the pandemic, she made it feasible to work with her. Her warm, yet vibrant personality, clear communication, and comprehensive instruction makes it easy and enjoyable to learn. She is a joy to know and study under, and I am inspired by her ongoing pursuit to expand her knowledge and share her holistic approach to fitness and well-being with others!

    Just you being around makes it all special. Like Rod Tidwell to Jerry McQuire, "you are my Ambassador of Quan." Love, respect, community...and the dollars too. The package. The quan. Thanks for continued support; it means so much.

    I have enjoyed Core Fitness and the fresh approach Erika provides to clients like me. I am a busy mom of 2, corporate leader and an entrepreneur so flexibility is key. I felt supported, encouraged and educated about how to get the most out of every workout. In addition, I loved learning about and making foods that nourish my mind, body and spirit. I look forward to continuing my journey toward strengthening my core and increasing my overall flexibility with Erika and Core Fitness.

    I truly enjoy Erika Maxie’s fitness classes. She has been working with me for approximately 9 months. My goals were to strengthen my right side, enhance muscle tone, and build core strength. I have seen such improvements in all areas, including a slimmer waist and increasing my height by a half an inch due to better posture.

    Erika does an amazing job tracking her client’s progress with monthly assessments and being realistic with their short term and long term fitness goals. She is always positive and encouraging throughout the fitness sessions. One of my favorite offerings is her food and fitness classes where she offers better food choices to include in the health and wellness journey.

    I would highly recommend her to begin or maintain your fitness regimen with.

    Thanks so much, Paige! Hearing how your goals continue to strengthen you on your wellness journey is amazing. So grateful for the opportunity to grow with you; BEST is yet to come.
