Eric was born and raised in west central Ohio, but has now made his way to the Cibolo + Schertz area with his family.
Growing up on a family farm, functional fitness was simply doing the work at hand. With his background in team sports, years later when he found CrossFit in his early 30s, it just made sense!
With years of experience teaching hands-on courses in corrections and security, with a lot of prayer, he and his family made the decision for him to switch career paths to be able to help more people and pursue a healthier life as a coach and manager at the CrossFit box where he was currently a member. The timing was perfect. Not only for him to switch careers and serve people in a better way, but to take his own health and fitness more seriously. As someone who was a cigarette smoker for 13 years and who ate out of a drive-thru window way too often, it was time to walk the walk!
Coaching and connecting with others has become his passion. Learning how to coach people on an individual basis while in a group setting has been his mission. Eric loves to help anyone on all levels to create a challenging yet rewarding atmosphere. Whether this is goal setting in all walks of life or finding a movement variance for a workout. Don’t be surprised if he gets just as excited about your newest PR as you are!
While in the gym, not only does he love CrossFit workouts, but you may find him training in Strongman as well. When not in the gym, he is with his family loving life and living for the Lord.
