HOLISTIC WELL-BEING COACHING & MOTIVATIONAL ENTERTAINMENT
From the age of 13, I started a journey to "optimize" myself. Entering the endless endeavor of trying to get stronger, more muscular, and "better", it wasn't long before my body was overused and out of harmony. My mind was working overtime as I chased an illusion of success and being "more" than I was. Through the highs and lows of what some might consider body dysmorphia, binge eating, and obsessive exercise, I found myself with overwhelming anxiety and an injured, dysfunctional body from all the overuse and unrest. In my attachment to becoming "more", I simply got in the way of my own natural flow, getting lost in my ego and form.
Once I reached my third significant injury, that quite literally forced me to stop exercising, I had to take a step back and learn how to rebuild myself from the ground up. In the process of physical therapy, I soon learned that it was not just my body that was being overused and getting inflamed, but also my mind. My thoughts were relentlessly fixated on the future and anticipating that which had not yet occurred. I was being driven by the fear of not being enough, which ultimately led to the break down that commonly follows "too much". In the midst of rehabilitating severe tendonitis and unstable posture, I discovered there was something else "wrong" with my body. It appeared that I was trembling with any controlled movement, from my face to my feet, and believed that was something deeply wrong. After blood tests and a neurological exam, the doctors confirmed there was actually nothing wrong with me. All the neurologist could share was, "It's probably in your head."
"Eric possesses a strong work ethic, a gentle character, a strong knowledge of physiology, an abundance of positivity, an inquisitive thirst for a challenge, and a special ability to see that body, mind, and spirit are inseparable partners."
"Working with Eric has been a joy. I use him for both personal training and as a life coach. He provides such a calming balance in everything he does. I’m finally feeling like I’m in a comfortable place with my health, mentally and physically. My headspace is clearer now, with less overanalyzing and overthinking. As I shift my perception, the things around me change too. Bottom line, I would highly recommend working with him."
