Founder (2002) and co-owner of Redefined Fitness, Eric brings a passion for fitness and a commitment to giving back to those less fortunate to the Redefined Team.

A three-time state high school champion in the mile run, Eric is very in tune with the techniques that help athletes looking to get an edge and a wide range of clients reach their peak athletic performance. He works with many student athletes and oversees the company’s efforts to expand sports performance training with high school and collegiate sports programs around the Midwest.

While attending Purdue University, Eric ran track and cross country as a scholarship athlete and was named a collegiate All American in track and field. He was inducted into the State of Indiana Hall of Fame in 2000.

He is well known for his motivation and drive in leading teams of volunteers to raise funds and donate their time for those in need. His keynote event is the holiday giving program supporting the Ark Shelter for homeless and battered women in Gary, Indiana. Eric has helped raise thousands of dollars to give to those in need and bring them hope.
