Hello My name is Eric, most call me “Uncle Eric”……the nickname came from my nieces & nephews but spilled over into my circle of training with the kids that I’ve worked with. I’m a NYC native who was a Certified Personal Trainer/ Fitness Coach for 5 years. Currently I work as an Accounts Payables Associate full time in NYC.
I started “Torch n Trim” in 2012 when thinking about how successful my “June Balloon” Outdoor Boot Camp classes were becoming and miraculously, just started out with 4 members. This class pertained to the members participating in exercise drills in the city parks and recreational centers using resistance bands, a sand bag or bell, some mats for core training and their own body weight. Boy, although it was a task at times, it was rewarding helping people lose weight and achieve their fitness goals.
While training with a member focused attitude and just simply correcting the participants posture, I thought that I could start something worth while as I continued for several months, not only “Training but Teaching” the participants how to perform the movements with out me (some what like home work for them) in the comfort of their own home if not the gym.
Low and behold the members, who were an aspiring kick boxer, a single mother of 3 and 2 college students at the time, continued to perform the movements (Animal & mostly primitive in nature) themselves and incorporated it into their daily routines. If I’m allowed bragging rights, I must say, that all of them have gone on after me to continue to maintain their desired weight goals
and enhanced their levels of physical fitness.
In 2015 I suffered from an injury to the groin r/l inguinal area, that kinda put me out of commission, being that I am up there in age (How old , I wont say. LOL ) After surgery, I got discouraged and gained alot of unhealthy weight myself and did not return to the hands on training that I enjoyed so much, instead I grew depressed and couldn’t pull myself out of that funk.
Fast forward, an old client of mines reached out to me after about a year or so to give me some business cards she had personally ordered for me as a token of her appreciation of me helping her lose 12 pounds and tried liked hell to find me to give them to me. When she did locate me through social media, something awaken in me again and I began promoting health and fitness another way. I lost my unwanted weight and got back to business!
