Turning Point

Before Eric’s CrossFit coaching career, he taught high school Physical Education and Health while serving on several high school varsity football coaching and strength and conditioning staffs in the Chicago-land area.  Before and after relocation to Lexington, KY with his family (wife Kelly and three daughters Ruby, June, and Evie) in 2009, he ran 6FT. Fitness, a warehouse gym specializing in kettlebell training.
