Eric Fasciani started his fitness career as a personal trainer in 2006. He quickly found a passion for fitness that was focused on building healthier, more capable bodies. This clashed with the body building/physique focused approach that was prevalent at the gyms he worked out of. When he attended the CrossFit® Level 1 Certification, he realized he had come across something special and instantly knew he wanted to open a CrossFit location. CrossFit has been the biggest influence on Eric and his approach to fitness. “I love that the focus is on health, wellness, and performance, rather then looks. You can have someone that looks ripped with abs and biceps but aren’t fit or healthy. But when you train CrossFit, you get people who are healthy, and capable of amazing things, and the side effects are that you look great.”
After 5 years of running CrossFit gyms, Eric wanted to add more functionality/application to fitness training, and began to explore MovNat (an outdoor highly functional parkour type of training). He got certified in Level 1 and 2 MovNat, and has used knowledge gained from them to create “Primal Fitness” – A group fitness class that focuses on moving your body to it’s maximum capability, followed by high intensity metabolic conditioning.
What has motivated Eric more than anything else in his career is the belief that fitness carries over to all aspects of life. Perseverance, integrity, dedications, sacrifice, self-control, honesty, and commitment are all best and easiest learned through fitness.
