Anout Eric: My goal is to help my clients reach their goals. By creating a fun and effective program to educate them and reach their target fitness level. I had played sports all throughout childhood. This sparked my interest in the health field, which in turn helped me pursue a degree in Public Health. While obtaining my degree I also became certified as an ACE personal trainer. I love taking a client through a new workout and helping them do exercises that they never thought they would be able to do. I like to combine free weights and functional training into fun and different programs for my clients. My clients receive custom made workout plans to suit their different goals, and capabilities with the goal of helping them reach their ideal fitness level.
