Our Team

Eric Gross

Owner/Personal Trainer

Eric is a Certified Personal Trainer (ACSM) and Certified TRX Instructor.

A graduate of Miami University of Ohio with a B.S. in Health Appraisal and Enhancement. Eric's specialties include: improving core strength, rotational power, injury prevention, body transformation, and correcting strength imbalances throughout the body using a variety of proven exercise techniques.

Eric's desire for the fitness industry derives from his long career as an athlete. A lifelong love of athletics began with a variety of sports including:  football, basketball and baseball. Although excelling in all sports, Eric’s favorite where he focused his efforts on was baseball. Unfortunately, a shoulder injury ended his baseball career sooner than planned. That event  motivated Eric to continually learn and apply only those techniques that improve functional fitness while preventing injury.


Prior to opening Advantage Fit Club, Eric worked as the Fitness/Operations Manager of Serendipity Racquet Club, as a Strength Coach at International Performance Institute (IPI) on the campus of IMG Academies, and interned under Miami University's Strength and Conditioning program.
