Success Stories

Elizabeth Housing
Elizabeth lost 50Lbs. with ERA Fit

“At first, I didn’t think this sounded like a program for me”.
“I used to make so many excuses! I was working full time as a teacher, I was raising six kids, and I had a side business making baked goodies for parties in my local community. I never felt like I had the time, energy, determination or the know-how to workout. I couldn’t believe it when I stepped on the scale one day and It said I was 200 lbs.! Luckily a friend referred me to Eric and his program ERA Fit. Again, it sounded like it was a program that was only for young people, but I gave it a shot and here I am today 50 lbs. lighter!”

Guillermo Salinas

“The team over at ERA Fit is unbelievable. I trained with Giuseppe for 6 months and lost 60 lbs.! The accountability, motivation and good nature of the trainers there are the best I’ve ever experienced. It definitely wasn’t easy but I’ve made huge changes in my life thanks to getting my ass kicked over and over again. If you need a change, this is where it can happen”

Jorge Mazon
“The one on one dedication to our physical and mental well-being is amazing. It’s a team approach with the entire staff being very welcoming and uplifting.”

“There is really not much more to say than this program is Awesome”.
“I have always been in pretty good shape but when I decided to really commit myself to taking it to the next level I found all my answers in this program. The ERA Fit training progressions, diet and supplementation plan work…. Period. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to take their physical fitness to the next level. Whether you are completely new to working out and just want to be in shape or you’re striving for the physique of Hercules, this program can get you there!”

Sergio Alvarez
Sergio went from 28% body fat to 17% in just 10 weeks

“I have always struggled with my weight”.
“Ever since I was young I have always led a sedentary lifestyle. Then one day I met Eric through a friend and he told me that he had just the program for me. Since I started using ERA Fit, I have lost 50 lbs and I am finally starting to see the makings of some abs! I can’t wait to continue with the progressions of the program and see how far I can go!”

Marilia Merino

“I’m down 18 lbs. and 6% body fat! I completed the first phase of my fitness journey with ERA Fit’s trainer Giuseppe. After I worked with him I’ve felt motivated to continue going to the gym by myself, I feel confident in what i’m doing, I’ve been watching my diet (with the occasional cheat meal :P). Great results!”

Dan Baker

Working with Eric has been great! In the past 5 WEEKS I have literally:

* Gained 11 pounds of muscle
* Lost 1.7% body fat
* Gone up two jacket sizes!

Eric’s approach is very no-nonsense, and has been tailored to my specific goals and timeframes. If you have ever wondered how Hollywood-types get the sort of results that they do, on a deadline — this is it.

Carlos Lopez
Eric is probably the most knowledgeable trainer in all of Miami. He takes the time to understand your goals, develops a comprehensive plan, to include nutrition, supplements, lifestyle habits, and most importantly, holds you accountable to yourself.

His training sessions are intense, fun, and always careful to respect your injuries and stresses. Never pushes you too hard, but just to the brink as he takes the time understands your capabilities.

I have used many trainers over the years, most good, but I never met my goals until ERA Fit.

Highly recommended!!!!

Lars Jensen
After 20 years of work, family, kids, Work, and Work, I’ve finally found the motivation and approach to incorporate exercise and healthy eating back into my life. I have Eric Allen to thank for that.

The workouts are very straight forward and are designed to capitalize on your efforts. ERA Fit focuses on technique. My location is southern Wisconsin but because of Eric’s demonstration videos, examples of proper technique are readily accessible.

I’ve come a long way in two months and look forward to the continued journey ahead.

Stacy Miller
Stacy went from 32% body fat to 24% in just 5 weeks

“I started gaining weight at a young age. My biggest problem area has always been around not just my abs but my lower back also. I started working with Eric with these techniques and I lost 14 pounds in just 5 weeks! I had never really stepped in the gym before but he made it fun, easy to understand and results were almost instant. I had always shied away from lifting weight in the past because I never knew how effective it could be at losing weight!”

Andres Larin
Dropped 5% body fat and gained 11 lbs. of muscle in 2 months

“I had been trying to reach my fitness goals for years but I hit a wall due to lack of knowledge and drive. I trained with Eric 3x week for 2 months and saw amazing results. I dropped from 17.7% to 13.1% body fat and gained 11 lbs of muscle. Eric pushed me harder than I ever thought I’d be able to push myself. He hooked me up with a nutrition plan that I followed faithfully apart from the occasional cheat here and there. If you’re looking to get real results, make the investment in yourself. ERA Fit will get you results in no time if you follow the plan! Eric is the best trainer in I’ve ever had, hands down.”

Andy Mendler

“Obsessed with ERA Fit! I’ve never been excited about working out until I started training with Eric. Now, I can’t wait to do sprints or go to the gym! If I miss a day I feel down and upset with myself. NEVER thought that would be me! Eric creates custom workouts and meal plans, and makes sure you’re always on the right track. After 3 months, I’m down 5% body fat! You can really SEE the difference. Not only do I feel stronger physically, but mentally too. I sleep better, have more energy, and I’m not craving heavy, processed foods anymore. Thank you Eric, let’s keep it going!”


Chris Bacari

Since joining Era Fit about six months ago, I have had a fantastic experience training with Giuseppe. In these six months, I’ve put on 8.3 pounds of muscle while also losing around 1% of my body fat.

When I first started, Giuseppe and the owner Eric created an individualized workout and nutrition plan based on my body type and goals. Now, every month we have an in depth check in where we evaluate my body fat, workout routine, recovery and nutrition for the past month. We look at how I am progressing and make any necessary changes for the next month.

Having used other personal trainers before, I can say Giuseppe and the rest of the Era Fit team are significantly more educated and committed to your success than the trainers I have used in the past. I have already seen a tremendous change in my body composition and I am thrilled with the progress they have helped me achieve. I cannot wait to continue improving with them and I would highly recommend Era Fit to everyone.

Stephanie Salbabor

Signing up for era fit was one of the best things I ever did for myself. I relocated to Miami in July and in those months of adjustment, I stopped being active (I used to bike about 6 miles a day for my work commute before moving) and I was eating mindlessly. Naturally I gained weight and I felt horrible. Also, now that I am on the other side of 30, my metabolism isn’t what it used to be and simply trying to eat healthy for a few weeks was NOT working. I met with Eric and signed on for 3 months. He gave me a comprehensive “action plan” to change my habits for the better including a meal plan, 2 sessions a week with Lina Lopez and a workout routine that I could do on my own throughout the week. Admittedly, those first few weeks were extremely challenging, but I pushed through and Lina made sure to never go easy on me during our sessions. Around month 2, things started to feel a little easier and my new habits felt like my new normal. After 3 months of this lifestyle change, I feel phenomenal. I’ve *almost* slimmed down to where I’d like to be and Ive gone down from 23% body fat to 17.2%. What this program has given me has been the tools, knowledge and motivation evolve my lifestyle in a way that works for me and is completely sustainable. I’ve learned a lot about my body, my well being and what foods are best for me— I have become very attune to how certain foods affect me simply by being very conscious of everything that I eat. While I still feel I have a lot to learn- I needed era fit in my life to help guide me and help me get to where I am now. I highly recommend this program. Thank you Eric, Lina, Diana and the whole Era Fit team.

Hazel Helm
“Can’t say enough great things about ERA FIT. As a woman in my mid 30’s, I remember being so intimidated walking into a gym full of AMAZING fit bodies. I was greeted by Eric, the owner of ERA Fit. Eric quickly put my mind at ease and gave me a plan, a timeline, and the Trainer/Accountability partner to execute. I could not have guessed by 2020 I would be 15 pounds lighter and have lost 6% body fat. I have not been this fit since college!!!!!!

The trainers at this gym have literally become like family. Elke was my trainer, therapist (LOL), and motivation when I felt myself hitting walls. She has since become one of my best friends. Initially I was a grouchy, demanding and impatient trainee but overtime I learned to be patient with myself and listen to my body so I could push through the excuses and fatigue ……….. all while still ENJOYING LIFE 🙂 Thank you ERA! :)”

Violet Adams
“I have worked with a number of personal trainers during my 7 year fitness journey and have to say Eric is one of the best trainers i’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. I’ve lost weight and gained lean muscle mass by working with Eric. His program is very individualized and provided the flexibily my busy lifestyle demands, while also providing results. Without any hesitation I would recommend him to anyone wanting to take their physical fitness to the next level.”

Joel Olsen
“Justin Tapper (Personal Trainer/Power Lifting “guru”) and Eric Allen (Head Coach/Owner) and the entire team at Era Fit are the real deal. I’ve had many personal trainers over the years. Stop looking and get yourself into Era Fit. In the time you spend procrastinating about doing something you could already be getting noticeable results. Stop looking at the buff, shirtless trainers you see on Instagram and start getting the results you want in 1-3 months. Expect hard work, bi-weekly check-in’s where body measurements are taken and coaching/counseling on everything that happens outside the gym. This “holistic” approach to achieving your fitness goals addresses not only what happens in the gym, but also the amount of sleep you get, nutrition, supplements, hydration, recovery, etc. The process is well defined and has been proven over and over again (check the seemingly endless number of before and after pics of actual clients). The bi-weekly check-in’s provide the tangible results you need to measure your own progress, and mutual accountability between client and trainer. If you’re not getting results at Era Fit, you’ll know in the first two weeks (and every two weeks thereafter) so you can make the changes that will get you to your ultimate fitness goal. It’s the best overall value I’ve found in all the years I’ve had a trainer.”

Chris Musser
Chris went from 25% body fat to 15% body fat and gained 11 lbs Of muscle in 13 weeks

I have been working out for a good part of my life, trying different programs, always changing things up and pushing myself (or so I thought), but never 100% happy with the results. He offers a very comprehensive workout and diet plan, accountability, and pushes you to achieve your best. I never thought I would need the help of a trainer but with the ERA Fit Swole program I’ve achieved things I never would be able to on my own. I would highly recommend this program to anyone no matter what level of fitness you have. Whatever your goals, I guarantee you will achieve them with ERA Fit, even quicker than you can imagine.

Eric Richard Allen
“The atmosphere there is amazing and the trainers are hilarious! Imagine being in your favorite sitcom as you workout and get fit! The trainers are fun, experienced, educated, motivating and you never have to wait in line for state of the art equipment. In a nutshell, it’s awesome.”

Maria De Los Angeles

Yo estado entrenando con Eric Allen por unos cuantos anos, Antes de comenzar con el, habia tratado muchas diferentes cosas, cambiando mi dieta y diferentes tipos de entrenamiento y diferentes dietas. Despues de un tiempo todas las dietas y diferentes clases y enternamientos dejavan de funcionar y no me estaban dando los resultados que yo queria. El entrenamiento con Eric es detallado, hecho para cada persona individualmente. Y se aseguran que dia tras dia siga uno viendo el progreso y mejorando. Cada dos semanas chequeos de grasa corporal, para determinar si tenemos que cambiar algo en nuestra dieta o ejercisios. Estube deslumbrada con las resultados rapido, Te da motivacion. Eric es muy educado en tantos aspectos, no solo los ejercisios pero tambien nutricion, suplementacion y examanes de medicina funtimental, todas estas cosas contribuyen a todo lo que sus programas ofrecen. Los recomiendo muchisimo! Los resultados son garantizados y su team es excelente.

Bodine Kholer – Ms. Puerto Rico 2012

“I had done many other ab programs before but when I started training with Eric I knew that it was different. He explaned to me the importance of tempo, changing intensities and progressive overload to make sure that my body was always adapting. His workouts are fun and super challenging! But most importantly, it helped me win Ms. Puerto Rico 2012!”
