About Coach

I'm Eric and I'm 32 years old. I played just about every sport as a kid, in high school, I did wrestling, raced BMX bikes, skateboarded, and snowboarded every chance I got. Once I graduated from high school I became a children's snowboarding instructor at Big Bear Mountain California and fell in love with coaching for the first time. That was only seasonal so it was short-lived so then I started my 1st actual career as a welder for about 6 years. Then my grandfather got sick and I moved to my parent's house in Texas and started taking care of him and my grandmother who needed 24-hour care. During this time I started doing Crossfit and fell in love with it. I would watch the coaches work with clients and I knew instantly that that's what I wanted to do. Once my grandparents passed went to school at the national personal training Institute where I got a diploma in personal training. Now I have been doing personal training for the past 3 years, I absolutely love helping people change their lives and become happier and healthier. It feels so great to have finally found my purpose in life!

Turning Point

All my life I have worked long hard hours in production jobs. When I was a snowboarding instructor I loved what I did and was passionate about it. After helping my grandparents and getting away from the production welding field I realized I needed a change. Crossfit made me realize that I wanted to train people and have the same joy I got out of work as a snowboarding instructor. Now as a personal trainer, I enjoy what I do all of the time, life is so much better when you love what you do. Now I am in great shape, I help people change and I am making a positive impact on the world. I am truly living my best life.

Motivation & Passion

I love working with all types of clients from elite athletes to someone that struggles to get up the stairs and just wants to be out of pain. Watching people accomplish new goals excites me and watching clients build confidence and feel better about themselves makes me feel very proud. I am extremely passionate about what I do and I put my all into it to show results. I also love working with children. I train multiple kids now and have trained many kids snowboarding, seeing the joy on a kid's face when they get something down is an amazing feeling. I am super excited about every client I gain and can't wait to help them crush their goals!
