“I met Eric when I was 12. My mom had initially signed me up as I was overweight.”
In the summer of 2003, a woman reached out to Eric, as she was distraught about her 12-year-old son Oliver. He was overweight, and was getting picked on at school, wasn’t active, playing sports, and was starting to keep to himself. She was worried. She felt he needed a fat farm or something like that. She knew that he needed confidence and to feel good about himself, and she knew of Eric’s program as she managed the building where the first Live In Fitness Program was housed. She had seen the results at the fat farm that he was getting with his clients and knew Eric could help her son. Eric told her that he would need to be tough on Oliver initially, as it was going to be hard, and he wasn’t going to like it. But she said she would do anything she needed to, to support the process and that partnership between Oliver’s parents and Eric was all it took.
Oliver joined the program, and yes, he whined and complained and even may have cried a bit…but he got thru the initial challenges, and all of a sudden, he started seeing results, he started to feel stronger, and he started to feel great about his accomplishments. He started setting goals and moving towards those goals. He was happy.
“Eric helped me get in shape and taught me how to train like an athlete and the proper nutrition”, said Oliver, as he explains that with the outstanding information Eric’s program provides, he likes to come back every year to reset his mind and body. The fat loss and lean mass results he achieved were really rewarding to him and very effective.
“I have had the pleasure of watching Oliver…a young boy, overweight, with very little to no direction, lose 70 pounds of fat and put on 30 pounds of muscle. He became a very good varsity wrestler and excelled int athletics. He has turned into an amazing man, and I am proud to call him my friend. I feel blessed that I was given the opportunity to have an impact on his life.” -Eric.
