Rove Fitness was founded by Eric Powell, an
experienced athlete and
Fitness Trainer. Eric obtained a degree in Exercise and Sports Science
from Texas State University, and has been
training for more than a decade.
His professional training career started when he was the Physical Training Leader for a squadron of 800 at Lackland Air Force Base. This experience allowed him to learn how to train various populations and work with many different types of exercise methods. (Don't worry, he won't scream at you....unless you want him to.) After the military, Eric attended Texas State, where he also started his first personal training business.
After graduating in 2008, Eric moved to Colorado, where he extended his repetoire to include training at 9000 feet and working with those with previous injury and disability. Colorado offered amazing opportunities for outdoor recreational activities, and Eric took advantage by summitting 14,000 foot peaks and trail-running barefoot (yes, you read that right... barefoot).
Having the opportunity to visit and live in other countries has given Eric an appreciation for enjoying life to the fullest, and not obsessing about calorie counting, weighing yourself every morning, or measuring any given body part. Eric's philosophy is that you shouldn't be working out just to look good. Train right and not only will you look good, you'll feel like you can take on the world. Rove Fitness clients are taught to have a balanced perspective on how to live a healthy lifestyle. As Eric would say, "It's not about working out 7 days a week, 2 hours a day. It's about eating right and training in the most effective manner."
