Eric has been a Starting Strength Coach since 2014 and has spent the last 7 years as a Strength & Conditioning Coach at Westminster Strength & Conditioning, a Starting Strength Affiliate Gym and one of the strongest and busiest private gyms on the east coast. In addition to day-to-day coaching at WSC, Eric manages the Power Athlete program and the Master’s Strength Programs at WSC, and serves as the strength & conditioning coach to roughly a dozen local high school and AAU teams.
Westminster Strength & Conditioning is a Starting Strength Affiliate Gym and one of the strongest and busiest gyms in the country. Whether you are a weekend warrior looking to increase strength & endurance, an aspiring athlete looking to increase performance on the field, or an older adult looking to increase strength and improve quality of life, there is simply no better place to reach your goals.
WSC training specialties include:
General strength training:
For the general strength trainee who’s looking to get stronger, improve body composition, and improve quality of life. We train everyone from the 30 year-old to their 80 year-old grandmother and everyone in between. We build a strength program around your goals and help you get there.
Strength & Conditioning:
Athletes looking to improve strength, power, speed, and agility need to look no further. Our strength & conditioning program serves over 200 local athletes ranging from 7th/8th graders getting ready for high school sports, to D1 athletes, to entire teams through the year-round sports calendar. Get on the same program and get strength and conditioning programming for your offseason, preseason, or inseason training.
Competitive strength athletes:
For those wishing to compete in powerlifting, weightlifting, or both (supertotal), WSC offers the best coaching you can find. Members from our powerlifting team hold a combined 9 USAPL American Records, and we are a training center for East Coast Gold Weightlifting, the largest weightlifting team in the country, winners of 21 combined national championships.
Rehabilitation/Post physical therapy
Traditional physical therapy often fails to return someone to adequate strength and function by the time insurance runs out. This is especially problematic for older adults who never quite regain function and ease of daily activities. Through our work with local PTs and Orthopedics, we have successfully rehabbed a multitude of physical issues and guided trainees to levels of function they never thought would be achievable
Women’s and Master’s strength training
Our Women’s Strength and Master’s Strength programs at WSC are one-of-a-kind and we are excited to bring these programs to people who cannot be at the gym several times per week. Our Women’s Strength program is 12 weeks of coaching and programming by women, for women of all ages and abilities. Whether you want to run a mile faster, keep up with your kids/grandkids, or compete in the next powerlifting competition. If you’re hesitant to begin strength training, or all you know about strength training is from Body Pump, this is a perfect introduction. Our Master’s Strength program works with older adults of all levels, helping them maintain function and independence into their 60’s, 70’s, and beyond.
