"Before meeting Eric, I was sure that I did not need Personal Training, having been an athlete all my life. However, I was encouraged to try 1 session with him to discuss fitness goals and body image benchmarks for my upcoming wedding. I was floored - both figuratively and literally - after our first session. Even though it was some of the greatest pain I have ever felt after 60 minutes, I wanted more. He worked with me to pick and choose exercises that were appropriate for my goals and skill level, and always pushed me to keep going when I would have stopped several reps ago. After a few months, I was thrilled to be in the best shape ever for my wedding. Not only that, his focused routines made me better, faster, and stronger for the whole range of sports I play.
Since the wedding, I have continued to train with Eric and have since been joined by my husband for some intense, team-building couple workouts together. We have different skill sets and weight preferences, but Eric perfectly caters each workout for us so we each feel completely pushed to our respective limits.Whether you are looking for intense, sport-specific performance enhancement, or have a set of goals in mind, Eric will help you get there at your comfort level, pace, and availability. He is not pushy, never hesitates to spend that extra amount of time to teach proper technique, and ultimately leads by example. He has elevated the art of personal training to life coaching through a healthy lifestyle and fitness regimen. I'm proud to be part of the EQ Team. - Andrea"
