ERIC'S BIO

Eric picked up the gym microphone when he put down the television mic.  He worked as a TV sports reporter for 18 years before getting certified by Les Mills to coach GRIT in 2013, BodyPump in 2014, and CXWorX in 2016. He tries to make the gym more than just a workout.  To him, coming to the gym is an experience where you get to see your friends and make new ones. It’s a chance to compete against yourself and do things you didn’t think you could do.  Eric is a demanding coach and trainer.  He believes he’s here to challenge his clients and to push them to reach their potential.  His goal at the end of a workout is that his participants emptied their tanks and have nothing more left to give.  One of his favorite sayings is, “How many reps? All of them!”

TRENTON'S BIO

Born to military parents, Trenton was active from day one. Each time he moved from base to base, he would join a football, basketball, or soccer team in whichever town he was currently living.

TEAM COACH, NPTA, CPT

CAM'S BIO

Cam has first hand experience in using weight lifting and exercise to lose weight and get fit. As a 215 pound middle schooler, he began lifting weights and playing football and quickly noticed the positive benefits that came from it. He went on to play football in high school and later accepted a walk-on position to play for the University of MIssouri-Columbia. Fitness has also helped him conquer struggles with depression and obesity. He loves helping others find the same success and happiness he has found in a fit lifestyle. “ I love to help others work and I really love it when they say, “I had a really bad day, I thought about not coming in today but I’m really glad I did”.  I also love sharing my lifting knowledge with others and gaining knowledge from others as well.” Cam’s greatest advice he can give is that you should never compare yourself to others. It is all about You vs. You. He wants his clients to leave the gym each day feeling confident, strong and knowing that they are one step closer to achieving their goals.
