Eric Villarreal started CrossFiting in March of 2008. He quickly realized that not only was CrossFit unlike anything he had done before, but he knew he would be doing this for the rest of his life.
By August 2008, Eric earned his CF Level 1 Certification and started coaching. Eric’s determination to be the best coach he could be drove him to continue his CF education and obtain several more certifications. He is constantly learning how to better the lives of those he coaches, as well as his own. He and his wife, Erica decided the best way to reach people and help improve their lives would be to open a CrossFit box of their own. In June of 2010, River City CrossFit opened its doors!
Certifications he has obtained include:
CrossFit Level 1, CF Endurance Certification, CF Gymnastics Certification, CF Olympic Lift Certification, USAW Certification
