My name is Eric Leija and I am an Onnit Academy Senior Kettlebell Coach. I coach in Austin, Texas at the Onnit Gym. I specialize in kettlebell training courses but I also incorporate other training tools and methods into my routines to get the most out of every session. I’ve been coaching for over three years but have been working out and living a fit lifestyle for over 12 years.
I began training in mixed martial arts when I was 12, and to stay ahead of my competition and in tip-top shape, I also did strength training and conditioning. I learned tips and techniques from some of the top fighters in the game and incorporated what I learned from them into my workout routines. This is when I first got familiar with kettlebells and their benefits for athletes.
