Client Reviews

We went to his work out and so far we like what we see. We will need to do more sessions to write a better review in the future.

Coach Eric is great! He has a very impressive resume and is very knowledgeable. My daughter really enjoys working with him. I look forward in seeing my daughters progress while working with coach Eric. We are so happy we found coach Eric.

Coach Eric's knowledge and credentials are top notch.
In just one session, he was able to pinpoint many areas focus for my daughter.
His training program is comprehensive and tailored to your kids goals.

Coach Eric was a truly a surprise. He's got this wealth of knowledge and the surprising angle that he brings is and understanding of the science behind muscle movement and training. Still, what's even more impressive is his ability to coach to the individual -- he adjusts his drills, explanations, and intensity for each athlete he works with. For example when he works with me he makes the drills harder, has me figure out my body instead of explaining it, and ups my intensity. This is because I'm training to go to the Olympics. On the other hand when I'm watch him coach younger athletes I can see that he guides them along a little bit more and put in extra effort to make sure the workout is fun.

He's also great are finding a drill to isolate something I need improve on, even after one session I am seeing tons of results. I've worked with a lot of coaches and have done a fair bit of coaching myself yet without hesitation I can say Coach Eric might be the best coach I've met.

Bottom line: Coach Eric can easily coach any level athlete and help them improve.

Coach Dixon is very knowledgeable and in just one session new drills and valuable information to help improve performance were gained. If you are interested in learning how to improve, coach Dixon has the experience to teach not only physical but mental conditioning which will help you get to the next level.

Coach Eric is awesome! After my daughter's first session, she feels so much more confident. The training techniques are like none she's been exposed to before - absolutely top notch. We would recommend coach Eric to anyone who is seeking to improve all around.

Today my son Tibet had his first practice with Coach Eric. He had an amazing experience.He loved the way Coach Eric communicated with him.I realized that Coach Eric is very knowledgeable in Anatomy, Biomechanics and made a great evaluation in my son's posture and strenght.Tibet has worked with different coaches so far, but none of them gave us so much details about his posture as coach Eric did today. He is very detail oriented and we believe we finally found our coach.
Thank you very much Coach Eric for excepting to being part of Tibet' journey.
Looking forward to the next practice.
All the best, Gerda Ergul, mom
