Coach Spotlight: Eric Kamont
March 11, 2016
I grew up a fat kid. I was active. I played sports. And I loved to eat. A lot. But I didn’t know – we didn’t know – what an image of “healthy” was. 16 years ago, my father made me promise to change my life – to be healthier and never put my family through what he put us through with being unfit, unhealthy, fat.
I spent a year eating chicken/rice, exercising every morning, tackling a stair climber, lifting, and joining a gym for the first tine. I dropped 105lbs during that time, 11” off my waist.
I grew to love my fitness, eating the right foods, the energy. I even learned martial arts. Fast forward a decade and I have my own family, my own kids. Working out at a gym no longer fit my schedule.
So I tried working out at home, doing P90X. I got great results and loved what home fitness could do – fast, flexible, portable. Building on that success, I did more – X2, Insanity, on and on. Tony Horton and Shaun T were recognizable friends at home and on the road. I worked out with my kids as babies, showing them how to exercise and as they grew they did yoga, pushups, burpees. My results were great. People asked, and I told my story – shared “the secret.” My heart swooned when I could help someone.
A few years ago, I decided to become a Beachbody coach, for the great discount on something that had so impacted my life. And more recently, chose to help others as a coach – actively showing them the way – by means of the culmination of my years of struggle and triumph – NinjaFIIT. That chapter of the book is still being written but has been amazing so far.
