About Me

Eric started his journey in health and fitness at the age of 13. After growing up as an overweight youth, he found exercise and nutrition as an empowering path for changing his life.

Eager to get out in the field, Eric completed his Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Missouri State University early and moved to California. There, he attended California State University at Long Beach and received a Master’s degree in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology. While his conventional education is foundational, he believes that continuing education is where health professionals really evolve and make a difference. To solidify his knowledge and expertise as a fitness professional Eric received credentials as a Certified Exercise Physiologist (EP-C) and Level II Exercise is Medicine Practitioner (EIM2) through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), a Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), and Level II Functional Movement Techniques (FMT2) through RockTape. With a strong foundation in the science of movement, Eric then took his nutrition education and practice to the next level by becoming a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). It is this area that really sets him apart as a health and wellness professional as he brings the full picture of fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle together.

Eric opened his first health and wellness studio, Progressive Health & Performance (PHP), in February of 2018. Since then, PHP has exploded in popularity and has grown to a team of 12 Kinesiologists and Functional Medicine Practitioners to help nearly every population. PHP has specialists in:

- Athletic Performance
- Tactical Performance and Preparation
- Neurological deficits (MS, Stroke, Parkinson’s)
- Pain Relief and Rehabilitation
- Fat loss and Body Composition
- Chronic Illness
- Autoimmune Disease
