My Personal Training and Group Fitness philosophy is based on positive energy, intensity and having fun. I help my clients and class participants incorporate health and fitness into their individual lives, and teach them how to exercise correctly to build self-confidence in and out of the gym. As a former recreational and competitive bodybuilder I always based my own training regimen only on building muscle and burning fat, never truly focusing on the power of functional movements and mobility. In 2012 I was introduced to Hard-Style Kettlebell training and CrossFit and my love of fitness was reinvigorated. I learned quickly that true fitness is not what you see in the mirror, but mentally and physically feeling your best as a result of the effort you put in, everyday. I dedicate my coaching to help others achieve the same, everyday!

“Having a strong background in biological sciences made me realize the importance of the human body, and how fitness and nutrition play a vital role in our lives. This became more evident after becoming a mother when your health, self-esteem and energy levels are important, not only for yourself but for those around you. My aim as a personal trainer is based on building your body and confidence by encompassing strength training, cardio and full body workouts that are based on the principle of stabilization, strength and power”

I’m Eric Hanson. I’m a personal trainer who has been in this industry for over four years. Personal training is all about helping you look, feel and perform better than you ever thought possible. My job is to motivate, encourage and educate you along the way to reaching your fitness goals. Years ago, before I became a personal trainer, I worked a corporate job and lived a sedentary lifestyle. I was fifty pounds over-weight, and despite trying every fad diet and “get ripped quick” scheme on the market, getting in shape was a constant struggle. It wasn’t until I committed to a professionally designed training program and diet plan that I was able to lose the weight. Now, five years later, I am more than fifty pounds lighter and stronger than I’ve ever been in my life. I specialize in body composition, weight loss and toning – I am proud to offer my services to the members of the Olympic Athletic Club.

I discovered my enthusiasm for fitness through my ongoing pursuit of becoming a firefighter. A career in the fire service is extremely physically demanding, so I knew I had to be in great physical condition. While building an exercise program, I learned about the importance of functional movements and core strength. These are vital components of any exercise program.

Fitness is a constant progression where we are always looking for new ways to challenge ourselves. As a personal trainer my job is to design a safe and effective program that will help you attain your goals. I want to share my excitement for healthy living with others and inspire them to always look for a new challenge.

Health & Fitness have always been a huge part of my life.

My priorities while training my clients are to; develop proper functional movement form while completing exercises, correct muscle imbalances, decrease risk for injury, inspire positive lifestyle change and counsel clients on proper nutrition and exercise habits. I have worked with individuals from many walks of life from ages 14 to 70 and from all fitness levels with success. I am very excited to continue my passion by helping others develop themselves and spread the power of health and fitness.

There is a saying, which states “every Trainer’s first client is themselves”. As a child and young adult I battled with fluctuating weight and low self-esteem. I didn’t like who I was so I decided to make a change. I believe anyone can change to become the best version of themselves, which usually starts with one’s health and then manifests throughout all other aspects of their life. We all have goals that are personal and unique to our situation in life, and my job as a trainer/coach is to help my clients take the most effective path towards meeting those goals while maintaining a safe and fun environment. I get to watch people from so many different walks of life change inside and out as a result of their hard work. The greatest joy I get from my career is witnessing that transformation in my clients.

Jacob Pugmire

ACE – Certified Personal Trainer
CrossFit Level-1 Trainer

I began fitness at a young age with no mentor, all self-taught which resulted in numerous injuries and ineffective progress. Then I joined a competitive climbing team coached by pro-climbers, personal trainers, and sport therapists whose teachings allowed me to compete in climbing on a national level. This experience inspired me to help others achieve their fitness goals by sharing my own experience and expertise. My training style incorporates a strong focus on core development, proper movement patterns, applicable strength training and corrective exercises with an emphasize on myofascial release and flexibility.

Precision Nutrition – L-1 Coach
CrossFit L-1 Trainer

Like so many of us, I started exercising to lose weight. But I didn’t become consistent and committed to strength training until 2006, when I spent a year recovering from a horse riding accident. Through the process of rebuilding my core strength and healing my low back, I discovered the positive impact that building our physical strength can have on our mind, body and spirit. Since then, I’ve been dedicated to helping my clients build and improve their fitness through focused core work, individualized strength training programs, and cardiovascular conditioning. When I work with my clients, I push, support, guide, and encourage them so they can move, feel and look their best.

Alexis Sanderlin

B.S. Exercise Science, Central Washington University
NSCA – CSCS

I’ve been working as a personal trainer since 2007. After gaining a decade of experience, I’ve realized that there are numerous factors to consider when starting an exercise program. I believe in truly learning the movements and knowing what your body should be doing and feeling, not just working out. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses and their exercise program should reflect that. There is no program or diet that will work perfectly for everyone. My goal as a trainer is to help create a pain free program that works the best for my clients individual needs while achieving their goals. Throughout my decade of experience Ive helped clients succeed in various aspects of fitness: weight loss, kettlebells, powerlifting, sports specific training and injury prevention.
