Starting as an AFAA certified trainer in 2003, Eric Moss is not your average trainer. An honest man in a dishonest industry he has become the “go to trainer” for people that have tried it all and failed. They go to him because of his honest, unorthodox “I never compromise results for marketability” approach and his high level of knowledge in the realm of strength, nutrition, physical fitness and body transformation. One personal trainer described him as being a “living encyclopedia of fitness”.
When he first started in the fitness industry he worked in an average every day health club that sported a power-lifting team that held several world records. When the gym was bought by another successful gym owner, changes happened that changed it into a gym that wanted what was popular rather then what was effective. Eric Moss left not long after because it felt “wrong” and started running fitness boot camps bouncing around different locations in New Jersey before settling on an unmarked from the outside studio in Pine Brook and now opening up in Parsippany.
I was certified as an RKC instructor in 2009 by Pavel Tsatsouline, an ex Spetsnaz Spec Ops physical training instructor. The RKC instructor course is the internationally recognized gold standard in physical fitness training with Russian Kettlebells and has a high failure rate because of it’s grueling nature and because they don’t let anyone through if they don’t think they demonstrate high quality technique, teaching skills and high quality of character. The current evolution of the original RKC is now called StrongFirst and honors the original curriculum.
Eric Moss is constantly and consistently sorting through what works and what doesn’t and is constantly bettering his own personal system of results producing training. His clients gain strength very quickly and he works with many fat loss “hard cases”.
In October 2011 Eric Moss was asked to take part in the RKC and assist in teaching upcoming instructors, an honor reserved for only the elite coaches in the RKC community. Here is how some of his students there described his teaching style.
He had a very calm presence which really helped me to relax and concentrate on what I was doing. Thanks for your expertise Eric!! Sheena Potts RKC Instructor
Besides your great experience and tremendous attention to improve my technique, you are a calm, reliable person, and very in tune with your students. Andressa Costa Professional model / RKC instructor
His attention to detail was incredible and I felt a tremendous improvement in my technique from his coaching. He did an awesome job of taking the time to work with me and my team members and made sure everyone was improving and comprehending all that was being taught. Thanks Eric! Ryan Jankowitz RKC instructor
In June Eric Moss is scheduled to teach internationally
With his semi private and personal training clients he focuses on both giving them optimal, safe and effective training, and having them laugh to make strength and fitness an enjoyable experience and the StrongFirst™ system (the current evolution of the RKC by Pavel system) fits in perfectly. He envisions it being like a party where people get strong, fit and lean.
