What’s up? I’m Eric, the founder and force behind Eric Decker Fitness.
“I’m sick of this. I’m going to figure out what actually works, and I’ll stop at nothing until I do.”
I remember saying this to myself.
I’d had enough.
I simply followed too much bad advice and I had enough of the lies and deceit.
Then and there I decided to make it my mission to not only find what REALLY works for myself, but to help others achieve REAL success in building their minds and bodies.
Driven by curiosity, I’ve made it my life’s work to uncover the truth.
Like a mad scientist, I went into my lab and read thousands of books, websites, and scientific papers. I put thousands of hours into the gym and kitchen. I talked with hundreds of people, trying to uncover what made them tick, what their motivations were, and why they did what they did. I also took tons of time to explore my own mind. I wanted to uncover why I felt a certain way, what triggered certain things, and how I could improve.
I started coming to some conclusions, such as:
- You don’t need an expensive fancy gym to build muscle and strength (although it can help).
- Supplements are just that, supplements and in most cases are unnecessary.
- Losing fat is mostly diet.
- Sleep is IMPERATIVE, not just something you have to do.
- Managing stress is a must.
- Life is mostly a mental game.
But the work is never done. New research continues to come out, we continue to learn and grow, and no doubt things will change as we find more optimal ways to look better, perform better, and live better.
This is why I’m always exploring. The things I find are updated through the blog, seen in my coaching, and shared with the community.
It’s important to note that I’m not perfect.
I struggle just like anyone else. I don’t eat, sleep, train perfectly 100% of the time. I get stressed out. I sometimes feel down or anxious.
But it’s not about being perfect. It’s about getting better than you were yesterday.
And that’s why I started this website, to give you the strategies you need to take control of your mind and body.
A Little More About Me
I don’t like to label myself, but if I had to pick 3 things I most identify with, they would be:
Being a father.
Being a father is something that I love, and it’s the most important role in my life. It’s truly changed me for the better. I’ve also gotten very good at changing diapers.
Being a trainer/coach/instructor/educator.
That’s a lot of titles, but I help people look better, perform better, and live better through many mediums so none on their own describe what I do.
Being an artist.
My art includes not only the body, but writing, images, and videos. I love expressing myself through words, pictures, and graphics. I love expressing myself through other’s results.
