Hi, there! My name is Erik, and I’ve been a movement coach for the past ten years.
I’m also a disabled veteran who was deployed twice in Iraq. Before becoming a movement coach, I was a physical training leader during the last three years of my four-year enlistment in the United States military.
In 2010, following my honorable discharge, I returned to civilian life with severe chronic joint pain from years of intense training and events that transpired during my two tours to Iraq. My joint pain was so severe that I even struggled with getting dressed and tying my shoes in the morning.
Finally, in 2013 I developed a functional fitness regiment that improved the overall function of my body and eliminated my chronic joint pain by focusing on bodyweight exercises that moved my joints through their fullest range of motion.
The switch away from exercising mainly with external weight (gym machines, dumbbells, and barbells) through a partial range of motion completely changed my life. I’m able to work out every single day, improving my body’s ability to move without fail. I also do not experience soreness, injuries, or chronic joint pain.
Today, I’m here to teach you how to utilize your entire body in order to maximize your full physical functional potential.
