Casey Ferrand“Pro Fitness Trainers helped set me on the path to better health physically and mentally. Even when I’m unable to commit to time at the gym with Eric, he has remained a constant motivator. If he doesn’t see me for an extended period of time, Eric encourages me by sending a quick text with simple workout tips or a reminder to attend to his free boot camp. Claudean also got me on track with my diet by introducing me to ideal protein, which got me over my plateau when I was struggling to loose the extra pounds. As part of my commitment to that program, Claudean also accompanied me to the grocery store to direct me on what items to buy. She also personally came to my home to help me meal prep to get me on the right track. Together Eric and Claudean have helped transform my way of thinking about fitness and nutrition, realizing it’s not just a fad but a way of life that can be both fun and rewarding.”

Neurosurgeon“There’s a difference between exercising and training. I see many people trying to lose weight by getting on an elliptical and going at it. While this approach will help your cardiovascular condition, it does very little to burn fat. Training with Eric and his PFT trainers customizes a routine to train your body to burn fat. Human physiology tells us that fat burning occurs when we exercise at around at 66% of our maximum oxygen consumption. The next consideration is making that fat available to your metabolism for energy consumption. This involves mobilizing fat globules and making it available to the powerhouse ( mitochondria) of the cell where energy is produced. This is where the TRAINING comes into play. A combination of muscle resistance training and periodic burst of cardiovascular exercise TRAINS your metabolism to mobilize fat and burn it for energy consumption.
I have been TRAINING with Eric off and on for the last 6 years. The P in Pro Fitness Trainer (PFT) stands for Professional. Eric and his team of trainers know what it takes to accomplish your goals and will design a TRAINING program specifically catered to be effective. Even though I am well versed on the subject of exercise physiology, it takes having a TRAINER to set up my program and keep me moving through my session. Eric and PFT trainers are experienced, knowledgeable and will help you to get it done. Remember, there is a big difference between exercising and TRAINING. Eric and PFT know how to get it done. “
Susan Isaacs“Eric is the type of trainer that will kick your butt in the the gym and be your best friend at the same time. He not only supported me during tough workouts, but when it came to life outside the gym I could count on him and his wife to be there for me. Everyday I’m thankful for the relationship that I have with Eric and Claudine. Even though I don’t live in New Orleans anymore, we still communicate on a daily basis and would recommend him as a personal trainer to anyone serious about physical and mental growth.”
Cory Taylor“Do you want a total transformation? Do you need to mentally and physically change the way you think about fitness and nutrition ? PFT is the answer!! Eric isnt just a trainer, he is a coach. When you hit the way of exhaustion, he finds a way to motivate you to knock that wall completely DOWN!! Fitness is a lifestyle. Get off the couch, put the junk food down and GIVE HIM A CALL!! “Sweat is fat Crying” #nodaysoff”
Cristina Santi“I’ve worked with Eric for about 3 years now and every goal I’ve set for myself, he has helped me accomplish. Even through injuries, his physical therapy training has helped me avoid furthering the injury and finding alternative strategies to work out. He is definitely motivating as a personal trainer and guide because he is a strong person physically, mentally, and professionally. I admire his ability to work with anyone to help them achieve their goals because it’s not easy all of the time to deal with clients like me who can be stubborn and sassy. I always feel better both mentally and physically when I get to train with him. Oh, and I like the results too!”
CEO of Dat Dog“Working out with Eric of Pro Fitness Trainers really taught me a lot about Health and fitness! Every session Eric pushes me to give my all and don’t hold back, that’s why my level of fitness is three times better than it was before I started training with Pro Fitness Trainers. Plus I’m a lot toner and way stronger than before I started, and I love the way my clothes fit me now. I highly recommend Eric if your looking for that total Change and a Healthier lifestyle. #nodaysoff”
