My husband and I had been training with Eric for over half a year, and it was a great experience for both of us. Neither of us had any athletic background, and both of us have totally different body types, yet he was able to train us at the same time with the perfect approach for each of us! We've never gone to the gym and wanted something we can do together, so training with Eric was the perfect answer. Eric personalized a weekly diet plan for each of us, which was easy to follow and enjoy. If you like an outdoor setting for your workout, Eric's free weight setup is in a park with many trees and lush vegetation. Unfortunately we had to stop due to moving and other life events, but I would definitely recommend him as your trainer, even for couples.

Training with Eric has been such a game changer in my life. Not only have I lost a tremendous amount of body fat but I'm now able to lift almost 3x what I started at when I began with him a year ago. ImHis knowledge of training and nutrition regiments had given me a base of knowledge and inspired me to become a better version of myself.

TRUST THE PROCESS. 5 months ago, reading some of the Yelp reviews on Eric, I reached out to him. That decision changed my life. I'm 58 yrs old. Always been on the thick, curvy side. I've struggled with weight loss since my late 20's after having children. I used to starve myself and it worked but it also left me anemic and with no energy. In my 30's I tried Phen-Phen, which again worked, but the weight came back once I stopped taking the pills. Later in my 40's, I started on Phentermine. I've been on and off of Phentermine for about 10 years. I'd lose weight - but gained it all back as soon as I stopped taking it. Never ending cycle. This January I finally got to the point where I knew I had to make a change in my lifestyle. Like most everyone, I was pre-diabetic and I also had high blood pressure, which I took medication for and I didn't like what I saw in the mirror. In my first session with Eric, I realized how out of shape I was. In the next few sessions, Eric would suggest what I needed to purchase (supplements, scale, fitbit) and he also downloaded a few health "Apps" on my phone. I think I was a bit overwhelmed BUT as the session progressed, I realized there was a reason for it all. It all started making sense. I then started buying organic whenever possible Weighing my food taking my supplements adding lemon to my water Attempting to meet my daily carbs/protein goals that Eric had set up for me. The weight started coming off, and the crazy part was that I was eating more food in a day than I had been used to eating. I always associated MORE food with weight GAIN. It took a while for me to erase that way of thinking; Eating the RIGHT foods and the RIGHT amounts do NOT equal weight gain. I'm a "Steak & Potato" kind of girl and I'm still allowed to eat that. Can you believe that !! I've not craved any fast food in over 5 months. I look in the mirror & that is my motivation to keep going. To keep on track. I am wearing outfits that I've had saved in my closet for years. One of the greatest feelings is receiving compliments on my weight loss ! I've lost 18-20 lbs so far. I can walk up stairs without knee pain. I don't have to take BP meds anymore. I can pick up and carry my duffle bags & groceries without struggling. I feel how I've built up my strength. I've always believed that people come into your life for a reason. Eric was meant to come in to my life at this crucial time. He became more than just a life coach/trainer. Part of the life change journey includes clearing the mind of anxiety and stress. That all plays a part in losing weight and your health. Eric was also my therapist. LOL. Some mornings I couldn't hide the stress and we'd talk about it. He gave great advice. He truly wanted to see me succeed. I am not the same woman that I was 5 months ago. It all started with my workouts with Eric. From there, I found my SELFWORTH, and from there I was able to start dating and have a more positive outlook on life. It all fell in to place. I cannot see myself ever going back to my old ways of not taking care of my body. What Eric has taught me is PRICELESS ! There is NO magic Pill. It's all about learning how to keep yourself engaged with little workouts & watching what you put into your body. IT'S ACTUALLY VERY SIMPLE. I can't believe it took me this long to finally figure it out. That never would have happened if it wasn't for me reaching out to Eric back in January. He's such a wonderful human being that really cares about his clients. I'll end this with a "Head under, Head under". :)

I highly recommend Eric as your personal trainer!! Since the beginning he has helped me, understand the importance of health. To be honest it took me times to be reminded, since it was a new path for me. With Eric's, patience, support, knowledge and guidance, he has encouraged me to overcome many fears, doubts and struggles, emotionally and mentally. It has lead for my health journey and knowledge to flourish tremendously. He will walk with you step by step and meet you where you are, to encourage and help strengthen your decisions making in reaching the goal, you have envisioned. You will be surprised to what you will accomplish while going through the training process in getting to your goal. You want results? With Eric, you will definitely see real results. Again, highly recommend!!

I've been training with Eric for just about a year, he has endless patience and positive reinforcement for when life gets stressful but most importantly, real results. I started at 44% body fat and I'm currently at 33%, with a goal of around 27-28. Overall I've lost 14 inches around chest, waist and hips and I've been feeling stronger and more healthy than I was in my 20's!

Eric reached out right away and was very thorough in his intake to get to know me and my currents needs/goals. He is super kind and patient with total beginners to strength training (e.g. me). He is an expert in explaining and demonstrating proper form and technique. definitely recommended!!

Working with Eric gave me the jumpstart I needed to make a few big changes in my life. When I started researching trainers, I knew I wanted to work with someone who was patient, kind, knowledgeable and would get me results. That's exactly what I got with Eric. He completely transformed my life. I not only lost weight, but gained confidence, clarity and a solid understanding of how the foods I was eating contributed to the ailments I've been experiencing for years. His knowledge about food and training is impressive, and he has a true passion for his work. I wholeheartedly recommend Eric to my friends and family and I'm sorry I didn't meet him sooner! Thank you, Eric!!!

I have been working out with Eric for 3 months now and have seen great progress in terms of strength and muscle gain. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of training and nutrition and I never worry about injury with him there to make sure my form is perfect on every rep. I really look forward to the workouts and being able to do them outside with a full weight set-up is amazing!

We love Eric! I was trying to loose weight after my baby. Once I plateaued on my own, I found Eric. He helped me get to my pre-baby weight after my second child. His nutritional guidance has been amazing. People started noticing my body change within 2 weeks of working with him twice a week. I did nothing else besides what he advised and it was great. We've kept the workouts going once a week once we reached the goal and it's been so helpful for maintenance and health. My husband and I work out together and we both love him! I've recommended him to multiple ppl and they've all continued working with him.
