"Physical activity is important to mental health. The training I do with Eric is crucial to my recovery process.
Not long ago I was so depressed that getting out of bed was an accomplishment. After staying in a mental illness treatment facility and subsequently moving on to therapy sessions, I realized the role physical activity plays in recovery. But when you're struggling just to get out of bed, and taking new medications, getting to the gym isn't the easiest thing.
My girlfriend and I found Eric at Pursuit Fitness Center. We chose Pursuit because it's a smaller, more private atmosphere – it's laid-back so I felt like I wouldn't be overwhelmed and it wouldn't trigger my anxiety. More importantly, Eric was patient, easy to talk with, and knowledgeable about fitness. You could tell he cared about us. I really needed that at a time when, on most days, I was irritable and tired at best – much less looking forward to working out.
One year later, I'm doing 100% better. After being at the lowest part of my life, Eric patiently worked to keep me active and give me the energy/mood boost I needed to get my life back together. I don't think I would have reached my goal of staying consistently active without Eric's help and the atmosphere at Pursuit.
If Eric can help me turn my life around, then I'm confident he can help you lose weight, build muscle, run a marathon, or achieve whatever fitness goal you may have."
