The Fitness Vida Process

"Your first session starts with an assessment of you and your current physical capabilities. From there, we establish a clear set of goals that are reliable, safe and sustainable . Once we establish a clear set of goals, we will work together to build an executable road map to help you attain them. The guesswork is gone, you simply supply the time and effort " - Eric Manthey

Coaching Philosophy

"I coach every new client under the same 4 principles of the Fitness Vida Manifesto. While the formula remains consistent, it is the theory that changes from person to person in order to help them become the best version of themselves imaginable"

Personal Fitness Coaching Specialties

Corrective Exercise.

Whether you are recovering from injury or simply looking to correct postural movement distortions (think bad posture/ chronic lower back pain) that are key factors to  pain and restricted movement, corrective exercise puts a large emphasis on reducing aches and pains through correct movement strategies.

Sport Specific

You play hard, but still feel the need for higher potential. Our Sport Specific Fitness Training sessions are meant to not only bring out your best, but also help keep you in play while minimizing the risk of potential injury.

Functional Fitness

Lets face it, most people are not aspiring to lift up cars or win the Super Bowl. If it isn't a goal, then why use training methods intended for those purposes? Functional Fitness training combines workout methods programmed to help enhance your life, reduce your pain and have you feeling great again.
