Owner/Coach Eric Gaylord specializes in spotting flaws and scaling, but as the owner of CrossFit Show Low, he dabbles in all things fitness and nutrition. Eric is passionate about allowing everyone in his gym to express themselves and making sure everyone leaves with a positive experience "whether it be fitness related or social," he says.
Expression is something Eric knows a little about. He tried out for American Idol once, but didn’t make the cut – much to the benefit of CFSL members.
His favorite part of coaching is taking a member through a movement or workout that has them struggling both physically and mentally. "Getting high-fives and a thank you afterward is worth every hour spent coaching our members," he says.
He says his greatest accomplishment is being a husband of 14 years and the father of two awesome boys.
