Behind the scenes with our BootCamp Athlete of the Month, Erin!
What made you decide to join our Novem BootCamp?
So the story goes, I was actually trying to convince one of my best friends and fellow boot camper, Erica Cissne to join Orangetheory Fitness with me. Erica pretty much laughed in my face and said “No way. I love my gym. You should come to my gym.” So I did, and I have been here ever since. Moral of the story is – friends show friends Novem because it’s the best. 🙂
Name a fitness goal that you have.
Toes to Bar! I want it so bad.
Tell us one thing about yourself that no one in the gym knows about you.
I’m an aspiring nomad who secretly wants to sell my house and live that van life….I also work in video production.
What is your Athletic background?
Growing up my dad was a basketball coach for my high school, so as a kid I had tried just about every sport there is; dance, gymnastics, ice-skating, soccer, basketball, and softball. Between my brother and I, our family was always off to some game, meet or award ceremony growing up. Now that I am older I have really come to appreciate those attributes that were instilled in myself a long time ago which is why Novem feels like home. Novem has that team and family mentality that helps take my workout from a 70% to a 100%.
What is your Favorite and Least Favorite Movement? Why?
I have a love- hate relationship with pulls ups and chin ups, but this is my favorite movement because I am desperate to get better at them and lose the bands. My least favorite movement are burpees- no surprise there!
How has BootCamp changed your outlook on everyday life?
I can actually say that I love the gym now, and I consider the choice to make it a habitual part of my life to be one of the greatest decisions I’ve ever made. The self-control, discipline, and self-improvement I have gained at Bootcamp has carried over to every other aspect of my life. Bootcamp ignites a place of progress and focus in myself that has led me to become a more confident, self-assured, and more complete individual.
