Gore-geous… MISS MARCH ERICA GORE
Destined for center stage early on, Erica Gore grew up as a cheerleader, gymnast, and dancer in Huntsville, Alabama. By the time she reached high school, she was teaching dance and traveling across North America for Latin Ballroom competitions, earning a spot at the USA national championships three years straight.
At 18 she moved to Los Angeles for a dance career. “But then I was drawn to the world of fitness, which is huge here,” says the naturally enthusiastic poser. “This year I was certified as a trainer, and soon I’ll be on stage for a major fitness competition. I’m so excited!” We’re pleased to introduce the world to fitness model Erica Gore, our Playmate of the Month.
DATA SHEET: Erica Gore
What are your professional ambitions? I want to go into the health and fitness field and continue modeling.
Turn-ons: A big, **huge**… personality (wink).
Turn-offs: Smoking cigarettes… eew.
My dream date: Something adventurous… like parasailing or scuba diving then a quiet dinner on the beach.
Worst job I had before modeling: Oh gosh, I’ve had several. But I think the worst was working at a burger restaurant when I was 16. It was my first job and I had no idea what I was doing. I would go hang out with my friends after work smelling like fried food all the time… bleh!
Three things I can’t live without: Music, squat racks, pizza.
My guilty pleasure: Dancing… I dance pretty much at any time, any place.
My biggest fear is: looking back and realizing I didn’t live life fully.
Get me a plane ticket to: Italy.
Happiness is: I think happiness is when you make the conscious choice to appreciate everything in your life and learn to love every experience you get. The good, the bad… it all makes you who you are. We tend to forget that it’s not what you have; it’s what you make of it.
I’m not embarrassed to say: I eat a lot of food… like, a lot.
Sexy is: being comfortable in your own skin… I don’t think there’s anything sexier than a woman that knows her worth and walks with her head held high.
My current crush is: Sam Hunt
Favorite quote: “Life should be like a Ferrari going down a long straight road. Go as fast as you possibly can. Then at the end of the road barely make it in to your parking spot, and be thankful for that one hell of a ride.”
