Her hard work and determination led to a 122-pound weight loss in just 13 months. She shed an additional 28 pounds over the next year. In 2016, Erica developed her own take on high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and founded Fit Love, an online coaching program that provides monthly workouts and guided nutrition support.
“HIIT can sound and feel intimidating, so I focus on scalable drills,” Erica explained to Women’s Health. “My sessions run about 30 to 45 minutes, but I start with one-minute cardio intervals: either 15 seconds hard, 45 seconds rest, or vice versa… The quick intervals help keep you from quitting — they’re over before you know it!”
