About this pro

I have been training men and women for over 20 years and have been fortunate and blessed to have helped many reach their fitness goals. Many have been through my total transformation program and changed their ther lives after losing 20 pounds or more! 

I also have been very successful getting clients to compete in Bodybuiding, figure, bikini, physique and classic physique.

I love watching someone drop 20 plus pounds and they are so happy!!  And watch others who are doing a show make top five or win a competiton! And those who have turn IFBB Pro's! Others who just want to have that look and not compete and others who have made a total body transformation. I'm NASM Certified, look me up on facebook ernies elite team! and Instgram! I have lots of pictures to look at! Will the next body transformation be You?

    I have known Ernie for over 15 years and he has trained both me and my daughter. He is the BEST and I highly recommend him.

  • Kim Farrar

    He worked with my budget, my goals, and my abilities! I enjoyed the group workouts and the pace. I didn't have to think about the plan, I just had to show up. I got REAL results!

    Well, I have to say I met Ernie 19 years ago. i hate to work out and I’m not the easiest client. Ernie was always patient with me and encouraged me to push my self harder. He listened to what I didn’t like about my body and showed me how hard work and self worth could change that.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I always send them a info sheet to fill out and send it back to me as this gives me a idea on how to train them and make them a custom diet!

I take it slow and show them the correct way to lift

I've have a NASM certification, a BS in nutrition
