My calisthenics journey started 3 months ago. I am 31 years old. My sport background was bodybuilding, I had no calisthenics or gymnastics experience whatsoever, so I started looking for a coach online and I ended up on Eric's Youtube channel. I watched his interview with Dr Israetel and topics covered were highly technical and their sound knowledge of sport science and practical experience really caught my attention! I have been an MSK and Sport physiotherapist for several years, so putting science behind training is really important to me. After 3 months of coaching with Eric I can already hold the handstand and I am already working toward handstand pushups! He is very precise and his technical feedbacks are clear. He has great periodization skills. I am the strongest and most flexible I have ever been and in great shape as well! And, on top of that, my acro yoga moves with my girlfriend also improved. I cannot wait to see what we can achieve in the next 6 months.
Before I started working with Eryk, I had many goals. So obviously I had question marks in my mind. During the 6-month period we spent, we reached many goals with firm steps. (100kg dip, 52.5kg pull up, side split training, 90 degree HSPU, Clean HSPUs on the floor, more explosive pull up). I also stepped up to my old squat weights and achieved hypertrophy at a very good level - although I am not a weak link. So, while these goals were achieved, I also gained muscle. Apart from all these; his guidance, kindness and doing his best are admirable. I am very pleased with the information he added and the improvement in my training performance. Thank you so much brother!
I have been working with Eric since january 2021 and we really have a great collaboration. He is an amazing coach and thanks to him I have taken my fitness journey to a level never imagined, and now, well the sky's the limit. What I most have to thank Eric for is giving me a structured way of planning my goals and effectively training for it. After years of training on my own with limited results I was feeling frustrated and I knew I was missing a better method. Following the plan from Eric, I am getting stronger and improving technique every week. We have set ambitious goals like Human flag, Handstand and One Arm Pull Up and I feel on the right path to achieve all of them soon. If you feel you want to start a journey into calisthenics or fitness, I can only recommend working with Eric!
I started working with Eryk half a year ago and am able to attest that his work is simply amazing. He takes into consideration many aspects like lifestyle, work load or personal interest and designs a personalized plan to help one achieve their goal. The structure his coaching gave me boosted many exercises considerably. On top, his knowledge as a physio-therapist helps tremendously when injured. Eryk replies quickly to questions, gives important feedback and his individual work is as detailed as his youtube videos. Overall I can invite everyone to book a lesson to see for themselves how professionalism looks like. Looking forward to where this journey will take me!
At the start of our corporation I was shocked by the amount of dedication Eric puts into his coaching. He has helped me reach a number of my goals in the past few months such as over a minute of handstand hold, full back lever, archer pull ups and handstand push ups! He's great at explaining different movements and his mindset of thinking long-term is exactly what every calisthenics athlete needs.
I enjoyed the consultation from Eryk. He helped me to create an individual long term training plan and taught me how I can adapt and optimize the plan. I can highly recommend his knowledge as well as his very friendly personality.
Eryk has helped me tremendously in my pursuit to achieve gravity defying strength. Upon starting this journey without Frinks, I found myself plateauing very early on. My reaction to this stunt in progress was to work harder, as well as buying courses from the most prominent names in the sport. Unfortunately, this resulted in a severe injury, being a herniated spinal disc. After discovering Frinks, I fixed this structural issue and now find myself making continuous progress towards my strength goals, as well as already achieving some. I have never met a coach to have such an obsessive attention to detail, vast scientific knowledge and commitment to his clients individual needs. I am grateful to have Eryk as my coach and hope to work with him for many years to come.
I started working with Eric in February 2021. At the time, I was trying to recover from a shoulder injury, but shoulder pain kept coming back. On top of that, my front lever progress had plateaued for months. Eric's careful programming has made a huge difference in my shoulder injury recovery and has helped me make a lot of progress in the process. Under his guidance, I've finally achieved my long-time goal of holding a straddle front lever for 5 seconds. Eric's programming is completely tailored to my level, goals and equipment. He frequently checks on how my training is going and helps me to stay motivated. He's always available if you have any questions about the program or calisthenics in general. We've also video-called several times, which has been very helpful for my handstand. With Eric's help, not only have I've got better at calisthenics, but I've also learnt a lot in the process. I'm looking forward to what we can achieve together in the future, and could not recommend him highly enough.
I really appreciate the help with periodization and learning how to train smarter not only harder.
Working with Eric for the past year was the best decision I made in all my 7 years of training: I learned a lot about programming and saw great progress. Eric supplied personal attention, with smart planning and careful monitoring, as well as answering any question or wonder I had. I highly recommend him!
To be honest, I wish I had met Eryk before. Eryk is very precise in his feedback and he knew exactly how to improve my technique and how to take me closer to my goals. I soon started to see the results: I became stronger, I improved my proprioception and balance and I progressed in my technical skills. I never thought that I would be able to do some of the things that are part of my routine now. Besides being extremely skilled, Eryk has a solid knowledge of the science of training and programming. Eryk has made me achieve my goals: freestanding HSPU, freestanding handstand for more than 40 seconds and strict straight bar Muscle Up. His friendly, relaxed and professional attitude makes my workouts very interesting and enjoyable! I highly recommend him to anyone.Instagram
Eryk has been an excellent coach, he really helped me to get into the right path by programming wisely and purposefully. He has also been very keen to solve any of my questions.
