I teach Group Fitness at Fitworld, Cranston, RI. I can't tell you how many times she has urged the people who try to "hide out in the back row"to give fitness a chance, go at your own pace, and "if she can do it, so can you attitude". She walks the walk and talks the talk ,she has lost 97lb.s and counting! A lot of people who struggle with the same issues as Tera look to her as a role model. She truly deserves  this award!  thank you, Lea Slaughter
