Hard work pays off, especially when you have a dedicated trainer who pushes you and keeps you accountable. I started training with Erik in January. I wanted to gain more muscle mass and become more familiar with weight training in general. Over the last 7 months, he has definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone and changed my interest in weight a good way. Prior to meeting with him, I disliked weight training and when I did it, I didn’t really know what I was doing. Through Erik’s training, I become more aware of how the muscles should move during weight training in order to achieve the gains and goals I had for myself.
While my weight hasn’t decreased significantly, my body fat percentage has and that’s the number I’ve learned that really counts the most. As of July, my bf % is the numbers are still changing in my favor.
I’ve definitely gained a new sense of confidence in myself and will use the instructions given by Erik as I continue my weight training journey.
Thank you Erik for all your help and good luck to you in all that you do. :)

As a trainer, Erik not only helped me with getting into better shape but also helping me build a better diet and understanding of how to live healthier. I have lost over 40 pounds and have never felt better. When I started I couldn’t perform a push up, burpee, or a even a plank. I didn’t even know what those exercises were when I started. Today I can do several sets of each and even bench over 225! If you read this and struggle with weight, living healthy, or just want someone to help push you to stay motivate, Erik Rokisky is the trainer for you.

Erik’s approach to training is excellent. Instead of merely training to a number, Erik drives for creating the best version of you in light of personal goals. He uses good judgment challenging for higher performance. He is a good adviser for physical training and dietary practices. He is highly recommended

Dear Erik,
I hardly know what to say that could encapsulate my gratitude to you. It has been a great privilege in my life to work with you as my trainer for 3 years. You have impressed me with how you have grown and professionalized and I have greatly benefited from your dedication and learning. You inspire me through your healthy lifestyle, positive attitude, commitment to writing, and enthusiasm for supporting others. You have been a constant encouragement to me and I really will miss seeing you each week. You have taught me a great deal about exercise, nutrition, the body, and about myself & life. You have shown me the power of positive thinking and in believing in myself. You truly are an amazing person, and my life is better because I met you. I can’t believe our time together is ending. I feel like I won’t know what to do without you and yet that’s not true. Because of you I know how to challenge myself physically and commit mentally. Through your examples, I will try my best. I miss you already! Thank you for being you.
With regards,

Erik and I have trained together for two years! His training style makes me feel extremely comfortable. He always explains the exercises and makes sure that you are doing them properly and if you have any questions, you can always ask! Even if I felt stupid doing something, or didn’t think I was doing it right Erik was always helpful and showed me the best ways to correct my techniques. Furthermore. Erik is the most positive person I have ever met. Even if he’s having a bad day, when you are training with him you would never know. No matter if it’s 6:00 at night, or 6:00 in the morning he always has a smile on his face and will ask you what you’re grateful for. He is always upbeat and encouraging during workouts and you will never leave a session in a bad mood. I would refer Erik to a close friend because I know how effective he is. His workouts are different and challenging and his positive attitude makes you want to continue booking sessions with him. I personally have referred one of my best friends/roommates to him and she has also been training with him for the past year!

I’ve worked out with Erik for the past year and a half, during this time I’ve learned many skills in and out of the gym. Not only does he teach you exercises he teaches you positivity and the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Working out with Erik has boosted my confidence when it comes to going to the gym and I’ve never felt more motivated to better myself. Erik is very good at making sure your technique is correct in order to prevent injury. He is a prime example of a trainer who is passionate about what he does and I can tell this isn’t just a job for him, he just truly enjoys helping people become the best they can be, physically and mentally. Greenville will miss having Erik in town but it’s time for him to spread his knowledge to the west coast!
