The Obese Like Me project was born out of a desire by one woman, Erica Gros, to change her lifestyle, lose weight and model better habits for her children. Through her upcoming documentary, Erica hopes to highlight the generational impact of obesity and to inspire change.
Erica Gros grew up overweight. Her childhood weight problem followed her into adulthood and her obesity became a constant daily struggle. She had little energy and began to notice oncoming health complications. Watching her young children follow that same path, Erica knew that she needed to make a change for good.
To inspire her two kids, Erica has made it her mission to learn everything she can about nutrition and proper fitness. She and her kids now participate in fun activities together and have discovered the joy of living healthily.
Erica became aware of ElliptiGO through Game Changers Running Company, our partner in Coastal Georgia. After one ride on the MSUB, Erica was hooked. She now rides 5-6 days/week as a part of her fitness routine and inspiring transformation. She enjoys the low-impact, cardio workout her MSUB delivers. Erica has already lost over 50lbs and her energy has never been higher, motivating her to try new things. These changes lit a fire in her to continue to inspire not only her children, but other families struggling with the same issues.
GO Erica, we are all routing for you!
