Working with Eric over the last few months, I've been able to make incredible changes to my body that I never thought were real. I've gone from 221 lbs to 192 lbs, from 19.5% body fat to 12.9% body fat.


Greg Szatmari

The most important thing for me has been how I felt, how I feel about myself, how I am able to do more with my life because of the way my physical health has gone, and it's been very easy to do.


Josh Heikkila

Here we are a year later, and I've had a lifestyle change - I physically feel strong, I feel young again, I feel like I'm in my 20s and I'm 40 this year. All of that has to do with the amazing work I've been able to do with Eric.


Nathan Freitas

It's hard to put into words how incredible only 4 months have been, I'm super excited to see where this takes me. I plan to stick with Eric for the next 6-8 months.


Brian Bedenikovic

The programing is super in-depth, and he always answers my questions, and he always provides me resources when I want to learn something new. He is just really invaluable to have in your corner.


Cody White

Eric has been really awesome at breaking things down step by step, focusing on one thing at a time, build the habit, turn it into something foundational and then you can build up to the next level.


Jason Ayat

I rarely write reviews but Eric really deserves every 5-star review he has. I have been working out consistently since I was 20 years old. I'm now 38 and before Eric, I had gotten into a slump doing the typical limited range of motion exercises which had caught up to me. I had limited flexibility, had to be careful picking up the kids for fear of throwing something out, and generally just felt out of shape even though I didn't look out of shape. I knew something had to change approaching 40 years old. I had good workout "knowledge" but struggled to develop a program for myself that would accomplish my goals. Everywhere I looked online seemed to be a "one size fits all" approach which I did not want. That's where Eric came in. He is truly dedicated to providing a tailored workout program using the equipment you have to reach your goals. He is also a wealth of knowledge on nutrition and what your body needs to reach your goals.

I'm 6', and after 12 weeks I'm down from 173 lbs to 163 lbs but am much leaner (probably 15lbs fat loss with 5lbs muscle gain). More importantly, I'm feeling the best I have since my 20's.

Whether you are completely out of shape or need some guidance like me, Eric is the guy you need. I can't say enough good things about him!

Eric’s plan works! Eric clearly is clearly passionate about what he does and I’d give him 10 stars if I could. After just 8 weeks working with Eric my results are REAL and are completely aligned with my personal goals. Eric crafted a customized plan for me based on my prior experience, fitness level, available equipment, my personal goals and habits. He checks in all the time and we speak frequently to discuss how the plan is working, any adjustments that need to be made, habits I want to develop and how my diet is being reflected in my results.

I have tried many different plans in the past and this was the first time that I’ve ever had a plan customized for my goals rather than trying to adapt to someone else’s generic plan. I was tired of getting hurt, not having the right equipment and having to eat based off of a generic food chart. By consistently following Eric’s personalized plan I started to see results early and I feel stronger and healthier than I have in years. I’m so glad that I’ve been able to work with Eric that I've extended my plan. I can’t wait to see the progress we achieve in the next three months!

Dominic Malleo
Client

After years of starting, stopping, and restarting various programs I decided to work with Eric after seeing his story on Instagram and I'm glad I did. He is very knowledgeable and lays everything out in an easy to follow format. He tailors workouts and nutrition to your goals and is always communicating about making necessary adjustments. This was a big change for me, especially the nutrition plan, but if you commit to it and trust his guidance you will definitely see results. Like anything, you get out what you put in.

Eric is always willing to help and responds to questions very quickly. If you are looking for solid, reliable one on one coaching that is based in the whole person approach to fitness, I could not recommend anyone higher than Eric. He has been fantastic to work with and I look forward to working with him in the months and years to come.

Steve Boyd
Client

Enjoying the process of having an online coach. Never knew I would need one in my life but it is a GAME CHANGER! I think we all need different coaches in our lives, Eric definitely delivers in systems, passion, compassion, and mental fitness. The physical will come naturally as you follow Eric’s lead. I’m trusting the process and it’s helping me become the man I want to become in the area of physical and mental fitness. You won’t regret it. Take the leap. You would’ve wished you did it sooner.

Esteban Garza
Client

Two months ago my husband came home telling about this online trainer we needed to check out. I was very hesitant because nutrition and working out have been a very big struggle for me. There has always been a fear of not being strong enough or good enough for certain types of programming. Eric has completely broken that fear for me. Not only is he wise with his training but also super encouraging throughout your entire process. He never takes credit for your accomplishments but always lifts you up for everything you have achieved. I have hit some big goals for myself and I am so excited to continue on this fitness journey with Eric and hit even bigger goals.

Devon Yeoman
Client

Working with Eric has truly been the best decision myself and my husband could have made for our health. Eric’s approach to health is truly holistic; offering very sound nutritional advice throughout our journey, helping to create healthy sleep habits and completely changing my outlook on exercise! He offers such a unique approach and practices bio-individuality for his clients. Weekly calls to discuss updates and continual support have been a game changer! I actually look forward to all of his workouts, as he tailors those to your style that you prefer while accomplishing your physique goals. We couldn’t recommend Eric enough!

Natalie Blau
Client

My wife and I have been with Eric for 4 months now, and we cannot express how happy we are to be working with him. The tailored approach, nutrition planning, varied workout structures, and weekly communication has all been exactly what we were looking for and has far exceeded our expectations. My wife and I both wanted to lose some weight; and in our 4 months of couples training with Eric, I am down almost 20 lbs and my wife is down 10. His approach to aiding us in achieving our goals is methodical, tailored towards our specific goals, executed in a sustainable way, and has truly served to change our approach to overall wellness. Trust his process, put in the work, and you will see the results you are after. If you are considering a personal trainer, look no more – Eric is your answer

Cody Tunks
Client

Have been working with Eric for 6 months. Could not be happier with the results and overall journey.
Eric is in your corner pushing you and holding you accountable. Everything feels custom specific to my stated goals
One thing about Eric is he goes the extra mile. On a few days with migraines, Eric reached out to check on me and offered nutritional suggestions that helped them subside. Helped me get back in the game with my program.

Everything about the program feels sustainable and not a crash diet, etc that of course won’t last.

Highly recommend.

Jason Hoehn
Client

I've just completed my first month working with Eric and it has truly been AMAZING! I first discovered Eric from his transformation post on Instagram. Eric has really been an inspiration because his approach is overall well-being, not just physical appearance. Workouts are tough, input is consistent and encouragement is constant! I would definitely recommend anyone whether beginner or advanced to give his program a go!

Pete Nieto
Client

When it comes to fitness, there is a right way and a wrong way to attain your goals. What's interesting is that both ways work but one way is sustainable by building life changing habits that stay with you for the long run. I have been doing it the wrong way for a while until I took a chance with Champ City.

Eric is the real deal, not only does he care about your goals but he cares about the 1% uptick along the way to help you create and engrain positive habits into your daily life. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone whether your looking to loose a few lbs, just feel better or you are like me and looking for a complete re-set to become quicker, faster and stronger. I fully bought into his style of programming and the results speak for themselves. Thank you Eric!

Justin Stephens
Client

Working with Eric/Champ City has been excellent. I've worked with trainers in the past and you could tell they were using cookie cutter workouts. But with Champ City, Eric listens to what you enjoy and the resources you have available to fully tailor the workouts so that you can do them, enjoy them all while getting results! The nutrition guidance is great and closely monitored to make sure you're getting in what you need and staying healthy!

Communication is phenomenal with daily check ins and weekly calls to keep you on track and motivated. The workouts are potent and effective but he makes sure that they are enjoyable to keep you consistent and motivated. The programming is great and Eric is one heck of a dude and genuinely wants to help people achieve their goals. I am loving it and I don't think you will be disappointed! Thanks for everything Eric/Champ City!

Karl Radley
Client

Eric is a awesome guy to work with. I’ve never hired a personal trainer before, I’ve always been able to get back in shape on my own before. But now at 40 years old, I found that I needed some help lol. His communication is on point, he understands your goals and helps you achieve them. After a month of work I’m down 12 pounds and feeling much better about the path I’m on. He helps to create a lifestyle that you can love and live with, not just a temporary quick cut diet.

Jeremy Stout
Client

Eric is the BOMB. I never imagined myself working with a trainer online, but I'm glad I did. And how lucky for it to be Eric. As someone who's worked out for over 30 years, I was thrilled to see results happen so quickly and in all facets of nutrition and health. He's so responsive, I sometimes wonder if I'm his only client. My only regret is not meeting him in person. I guess my next vacation will have to be in Austin!

SB Zarnfaller
Client

Impeccable customized service with consistent and personalized communication throughout. Eric blends his own passion for health and wellness with a natural ability to relate and connect with his clients to meet them where they are and get the best out of them in order to reach their goals. He continuously catered my plan to accommodate a chronic back issue as well as my schedule. Ensuring I got a top notch workout no matter where I was or how limited I was with my equipment or muscle soreness. Highly recommend no matter where you are in the world.

Bryan Orenchuk
Client

This program was definitely life-changing. Now in my mid-30s, its been difficult getting the results I wanted the last couple of years. With the help of the Champ City team, I reached my personal goal two weeks prior to my goal deadline, so we set a new goal! This isn’t your typical work out/crazy diet, but a lifestyle change and I will definitely apply the things I learned while working with Eric. Haven’t felt this great in years!!

Elvin Santiago
Client

Eric's social media content is solid, both inspiring and educational, which is what led me to sign up for his virtual training program. He created a game plan unique to me and catered around the gear/equipment I have at home. He utilized positive reinforcement (rather than aggressive coaching) to help me make intentional decisions and improvements to my dietary habits, workout routine, and overall lifestyle. I would definitely recommend Champ City to anyone looking to be a better version of themselves, even if you just need to knock some rust off - Eric can definitely help you get there.

Tyler Sharette
Client

Eric from Champ City is AMAZING! The workouts are challenging, fun, and will get you to the goals you are looking for with his guidance. Absolutely love his heart for the passion he had for helping others. If you’re looking for a trainer, don’t second guess! Sign up!

Lahana Vigliano
Client

I've worked with Eric Champ w/ Champ City Holistic Fitness for over a year. Eric has been an incredible inspiration to our whole family. His workouts have been challenging yet fun! I enjoy functional movement workouts and Eric's workout routines are spot-on! I highly suggest Champ City for all your fitness & wellness needs!

Doug Vigliano
Client

Eric is awesome! In the beginning of my training period I told Eric where I wanted to be by the end of us working together and he pushed me to my goals and was right there with me every step of the way. I can't thank him enough for putting me on the path physically and mentally that I was looking for.

Reagan Smith
Client

I came to Eric Champ because my weight loss had plateaued. I lost 100lb on my own, then spent over a year in frustration trying to lose anything more. Up and down by 5lb but my progress had halted. Champ got me over the hump and gave me a ton of new tools for my journey. Throughout the process, he was communicative and empathetic, while challenging me in ways that spoke to and encouraged my best self. He’s THE trainer. Working with him, I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in!

Josh Thompson
Client

Been "training" for a long time and this is the first time I truly feel I am getting results without beating my body into the dirt (doing more damage than good). Eric is educated, passionate, and attentive to his clients desires. Not only does he put together a stellar workout plan with an emphasis on functional movement, but also stresses the importance of total body and mind health and recovery. Consistently checking in and always quick to offer words of motivation, and personal tips/hacks to get the most out of your day.

Would recommend 11/10 times!

Ryan Mansmann
Client

Eric has an uniquely personal approach to his craft. He begins the process with fully understanding your goals, nutrition and limitations. From there, Eric is beside you with advice, support and a willingness to adjust and adapt as needed. Eric makes himself available to his clients and genuinely cares about your mind, body and spirit. I am thoroughly impressed with his knowledge and organization and I highly recommend his services.

Greg Fallon
Client

Eric got me out of a 2 year slump and onto a new path that is sustainable and will be long term. I have not felt this energized, encouraged and able in a long time. He gave consistent and thorough communication, any question was answered in a super timely manner and his workouts left me with more energy for my day which was a new experience for me! I recommend Eric 10 out of 10!!

Tiffany Miller
Client

Eric has developed a program that can work for anyone. I'm pushing 50 years old, and have so far dropped nearly 7% body fat and almost 25 pounds in less than 6 months. My energy and strength have skyrocketed, my nutrition has been dialed in, and I feel as if I have created a permanent habit. So glad I made this decision...best investment ever!

Jason Watts
Client

Working with Eric has been a game changer for me! Eric really cares about giving you the tools to prioritize your health, regardless of your current life demands. He’ll meet you where you’re at and is all about empowering you and helping you build sustainable, healthy habits. He has a ton of knowledge, his own personal health journey is relatable and inspiring, and he’s an all-around great guy. I highly recommend working with him :)

Jonathan Rossi
Client

This has been a great fitness regimen for me. Eric has always gone those extra steps to ensure my workouts are effective. Anytime I need to switch something up and try something new, he has been very receptive to that feedback and continues to challenge me. Five Stars

Daniel Pastoor
Client

This is NOT your typical program that you bought online. This is highly recommended and personalized for each person. I have been training endurance sports for 4 years. And always struggling with the lifting. With Eric only in 3 months I getting stronger. Faster. Explosive. And loving each day of the training. Eric is always there to reply any stupid doubt I have. This program it's the GOAT.

Jaime Loor
Client

Working with Eric has been a game changer in my fitness journey. He has been able to provide extremely customized workout plans to my ever changing workout needs. He's help me get more connected to my body and showed me several things that I will utilize long term in my fitness journey. If you are serious about getting support with your fitness and health, I highly recommend doing one of Eric's programs.

Lucas Bell
Client

If your on the fence about signing up for one of Champ City's programs - STOP and sign up today! You won't regret it. Do it now while he is still growing. Because a person like Eric is so authentic, and so real, his business is going to explode. His story is amazing and you can't help but be inspired. To be teamed up with him and work with him directly has been awesome. His program has gotten me through some months where I would have otherwise found fitness and nutrition to be a challenge.

With his coaching I've been able to build consistency, gain 10 pounds of lean muscle mass, and go from hanging on a pull-up bar and wishing to actually being able to knock out pull-ups unassisted for the first time in my life! He is engaging, an amazing communicator, and it's worth every dollar to invest in yourself! Eric's message resonates and it's powerful and he want's to take you along the journey toward your own personal health and fitness goals - IT'S NEVER TOO LATE!

Justin Stover
Client

First and foremost, Eric and his workout ethic are as authentic as they come. The prescribed workouts are tailored to my goals and Eric is flexible with changes if needed, for me which are running based goals. He’s there to help in the chat feature of the app to encourage, coach and support me. I felt like I had a relatively good grasp on my workouts and overall fitness but Eric has challenged me to be more mindful daily in my actions, how I treat my body (workout and nutrition) and offers a variety of active recovery options, which is nice to have a reminder of taking it easy from time to time.

I strongly recommend that if you’re new to workouts, moderately active or fit and looking to up your workouts, this is your path!

Joe Ortega
Client

Are you someone who starts, stops or alternate its goal quite often? Do you need help to improve your overall fitness Level? Well, then Eric is your man!

I wanted to improve my overall fitness and wanted to shed some pounds for an upcoming tennis season. I therefore booked a 12 week program. With our weekly calls I was fantastic to talk with someone who walked the walk and acted as a role model. He is the living proof of its own system.

The best part is that the workouts are custom made for you. So if you don’t have much equipment Eric will make sure that you will have fantastic workouts nonetheless. The workouts itself were challenging, fun and never boring.

After our time I lost 8 pounds and my fitness level went through the roof.

Thanks for reading my feedback. Hope I could help you to make a decision if you want to invest or not :-)

Christian Rupp

Eric is the real deal. My workout program and the mobile app keep me coming back for more, every single morning. I have made excuses for years about why I have not prioritized my physical fitness, generally citing the "high octane" nature of my work or desire to maximize family time as the culprit.

In the last four months, Eric has persistently spurred me on through incremental weekly changes that in total, are changing my life for the better. I finally found my "ME" time in waking up early for these workouts, which have been a great anchor in the day for other new habits.

The program has gradually increased in difficulty as I progress, and I'm already getting positive feedback from my wife on my tighter core / mid-section. My mood is so much better with this physical workout regimen in my day (and I'm realizing how naturally irritable I am without it!) Eric is also a trustworthy resource on nutrition, which ensures my body builds back stronger every week. Eric is a solid guy, and I can't recommend him highly enough. He believes in me, and that helps me believe in me too!

Matthew Marshall
Client

I’ve been working with Coach Eric since the beginning of 2021, so for the past five months or so. First and foremost, I’ve learned that having a great coach is all about trust and the emotional/mental side of fitness vs. anything else. It’s not the programming or the nutrition guidance, which was all phenomenal. The reason I’ve chosen to work with Eric originally was his transformation, the reason I choose to continue to work with Eric is his attitude and partnership.

Every single week Eric checks-in and we have an open and honest conversation, without judgement, without remorse or regret and I can say without a doubt that every single week I have become a better person because of the work that I am doing with Eric. Working with a coach does not make it easier, actually it makes it more challenging because it’s about accountability. Eric has been there every step of the way to support me and has been an unreal mentor and role model.

I highly recommend Eric to anyone and everyone, it doesn’t matter if you are a super fitness robot or working to find out how to get started because Eric will be there to help guide you, each and every step of the way.

Thank you for everything, Eric. You are truly an inspiration!

I rarely write reviews as I don't care enough about the service or product to take time and write something..... Eric Champs program and personal service however, may be the one thing that got me out of my massive workout rut.

Long story short, I like many people were involved in sports during my college days, after college I kept at working out but lost the love for the 'Grind' and to get /stay in shape. I never felt 100% as though I was out of shape, but sure as hell was struggling when doing a mile or finding energy to lift weights. I rarely was getting excited for any workout, especially all the workouts I would attempt to come up with on the fly.

Eric changed the game, his workouts, the app, the meal advice, the motivation. He gave me the realistic workouts, specific timeline, and the plan I needed to workout on MY TIME. He gave the flexibility of my time to move things around, and help me while I was putting my home gym together. He helped me get back to feeling like myself and back into shape, truly great shape.

I would recommend anything that Eric Champ promotes and would 1000% recommend his program to anyone and everyone. He puts his clients first, and wants to see them succeed every step of the way. Simple as that.

A great guy, and a better coach. Hoping to do a workout or grab a coffee with him one of these days.

Onward and Upward!
