Eric Leon believes that whatever your fitness goals are, CrossFit is the most effective way to get there. For Eric, it was the pursuit of functional fitness that led him to CrossFit.
Eric stumbled upon CrossFit.com sometime in 2008 while looking for a way to prepare to for the Army’s Airborne School. Eric did graduate Airborne School in 2008, and has never parachuted out of a plane since.
While CrossFit started as a means to pass a course, it became much more for Eric; a constant variable throughout his life and travels. In 2012, Eric become a founding athlete at CrossFit Salerno, a not-for-profit affiliate at FOB Salerno. He is very grateful to have had the opportunity to work out with some very cool people.
