Anyone can design a workout program, but a true profession will give you a rational explanation as to WHY specific exercises were implemented into your training regiment.

What I love most about my profession is helping people attain their fitness goals WHILE also making them feel their very best. I do so by focusing on specific overactive/underactive muscles an individual may have (and the typical muscle discomforts that follow) and incorporating those muscle imbalances within the individual's training program while also focusing on their main fitness & health goal(s).
Eric has been training my 14 year old 3x / week for approximately 10 weeks. He started out at 190lbs and Eric has helped him transform into a fit 172lbs. At 5’11 that’s quite an accomplishment. Eric’s encouragement and positivity makes all the difference and is fantastic! We are so very happy with Eric’s personal attention to motivation and personal responsibility. I high recommend Eric as a trainer.
Eric is the best Trainer I’ve ever worked with! Eric is incredibly knowledgeable about fitness and the body. He makes every workout efficient and fun. I’m so happy that I finally found a personal trainer that I’m confident will help me reach my Fitness goals! ~Melisa D
Working with Eric was amazing. He really has a great knowledge of what he is doing and can translate that knowledge towards who he is training. One of the best works outs I’ve ever had and still had a lot of fun doing it because of Eric’s friendly attitude and motivation. Would definitely train with Eric again and recommend him to anybody in need.
With new clients, we will go through a brief consultation where I will inquire questions about your current lifestyle (occupation, postural habits, physical/recreational activities, etc), we will discuss your fitness goals, address any limitations you may currently have, perform some physical assessments to test for muscle imbalances, and you will have the option to receive further tips, guidance, and links to help achieve your overall fitness goals! Then, we can proceed with your first training session or reschedule for another day - whichever is convenient for you.
I am currently studying health science at CSUCI with a pre-med emphasis (I am studying to become a physician). I received my A.A. in Kinesiology from Moorpark College. I've also continued to further my education in kinesiology by achieving other fitness certifications - such as my Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) certificate that I received from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).
I charge $100/session; However, training sessions may vary from 60-70 minutes depending on how you feel (if you have a specific muscle discomfort one day we may spend more time addressing that symptom). Your 1st session is FREE so that you can can get an authentic experience and see if you'd like to continue our partnership in accomplishing your fitness goals. In Addition to my training sessions, I can also provide you with Free training templates/programs for you to follow during your own time. I even have an active social media following if you are interested in learning new exercises - including exercises for specific muscle groups & dysfunctions. ( Instagram & Facebook Username: Schaefit_ ) AND, I will give you access to a health portal link that allows you to log and track your own calories & fitness activities, while providing you with supplementation, vitamin, & dietary information - all from registered dietitians!
