I am beyond thankful to Erik for helping me achieve my desired weight and reaching my fitness goals. So if you are ready to make a change or even get started in your own transformation, Brown Fitness is the best place for that. Training with Erik has transformed my body into a new person!

I am more confident in myself than ever before, strong and I love setting new goals to reach. I love a good challenge and every workout at Brown Fitness is a new challenge. For those who are looking to change their body and reach their desired goal, Brown Fitness is a wonderful place that I would highly recommend. Why wait for tomorrow when you can start your new journey today!
I first met Erik and Brown Fitness through a personal referral from a co-worker at my office. I was interested in getting back into shape and she recommended that I contact Erik. I was trying to fit a workout routine into my daily activities but was having problems making it work. I do not like working out early in the mornings and was not working out regularly after work. I had gained weight and was needing a routine I could get committed to and see results from.
At first, I was unsure if I would like a group activity. I had always worked out in the past with personal trainers, so I was use to the one on one personal attention. After starting, I was very impressed by the intensity of the work out. The group setting was fun, not uncomfortable, and I began seeing results quickly. Erik makes sure that we are all doing the activities correctly and you do receive personal attention! I also liked the accountability in the program. I was motivated to eat well and workout hard because I did not want to be the only participant that had not lost inches! In 4 months I’ve lost 25 pounds and 12 inches from my waist, thighs, arms, and hips! I am happier and more confident and getting more attention from my husband, which is always a great thing! I would definitely recommend Brown Fitness to anyone wanting great results!
I met Erik after seeing an ad in the Fort Worth Star Telegram about Camp Kettlebell and Brown Fitness. My husband Gary called and set up an appointment. The process was quick and easy. I was surprised that I could barely finish the warm up with you! I had recently lost 50 pounds with a weight loss program that only focused on diet and was ready for some physical exercise to help me tone and get in better shape. We clicked on the Brown Fitness website, and after seeing the video of the “normal” women who were enrolled in the program as opposed to the typical hard bodies, my interest was peaked! I have always been of the mentality that I needed to lose weight and get in shape before I could show my face in a gym!!!! At first I was nervous and afraid that I could not keep up, almost to the point of not joining! I was very happy to find that the class was easily self paced while still pushing you to be the best that you can be! Since starting Brown Fitness in April, in only four months I have have lost an additional 50 pounds and 18.5 inches. I’ve gained stamina and everyday activities are easier than before!
Before I started eating better and joining Brown Fitness, I could not walk form my car into work without losing my breath. I was taking the elevator because I could not make it up the single flight of stairs without huffing and puffing and it was very embarrassing. I did not want to attend any social events or go anywhere as I was afraid I could not keep up and it was a physical strain on my body to walk. After losing 100 pounds I am feeling much better! For instance, the stairs at work are not a problem any longer and I am not winded, I can actually bounce, YES, I said bounce up the stairs! I am more physically active and as I stated in a text to you from our recent trip where I was hiking and climbing through rock formations… I often turn to my husband or son and say, after performing a task that would have been very difficult or impossible before, “THANK YOU KETTLEBELLS!!!” Thank you Erik for always being positive and helping all who enter your doors to be the best that they can be …if they want it!!!
I am constantly talking about how wonderful this program is! I started working out here during a Transformation Challenge when a friend recruited me to be on her team, and I immediately knew that this was different. Erik not only helped me stay on a consistent workout schedule, but he provided suggestions for healthy nutrition and overall wellness. With his help, I have been able to make some important changes, not only to my workout routine but also to my eating habits that will last a lifetime. I’ve lost over 30 pounds in less than six months, and I have been able to keep it off for almost a year. It has been fun to reward myself with new clothes as I have watched the inches disappear – I used to dread shopping, and now I love it! Before coming to Brown Fitness, I thought I was too busy to work out regularly. I found myself making excuses about not having enough time, but the 45 minute sessions are quick and efficient and deliver amazing results and that is what makes Brown Fitness different. The program strikes a perfect balance of being challenging without being too hard and being doable without being too easy. It is never boring, and the exercises change enough to keep it interesting. I also think that Erik Brown himself makes it different – Erik is not only knowledgeable and passionate about helping his clients, but he is also a kind person who knows how to guide and direct people with a unique style that never feels intense or intimidating. I do everyday and will continue to recommend Brown Fitness to my friends looking to change the direction of their lives for the better!
I first came to Erik and Brown Fitness after my mother introduced me to kettlebells. I was the heaviest I had ever been at 270 pounds and 25% body fat! The extra weight was causing a strain on my lower back that I couldn’t get rid of. It was time, I needed a new workout routine to help me motivate my weight loss. Money was always an obstacle, but with my diet and keeping a regular workout routine I quickly realized I was saving money by not eating out and cutting out the frequent stops at Starbucks! I’ve always been a free weight guy, not really worrying about my core, but after the first session at Brown Fitness, I felt muscles I never knew I had! With the extra weight and not paying attention to my core causing the strain on my lower back I was visiting the chiropractor 3 times a week! Now my lower back doesn’t give me any trouble at all! I would definitely recommend Brown Fitness if your serious about getting some life changing results! The workouts Erik creates can be modified for anyone, whether you’re just beginning or if you’ve been doing kettlebells for awhile!
I first met Erik 16 years ago! I wanted to go to someone I felt safe with and get great results with. I was turning 50, going through menopause and had LOTS of stress!!! I saw results quickly which made me work hard to be consistent. And consistent I have been! For the past 12 years I have not looked back. At first, it was exhausting. I had to build up some stamina. Brown Fitness’s fun and challenging workouts never get boring! You really feel like you have gotten a great workout when you are finished! I have better stamina, strength, and I’m better prepared for stress. I have more energy than ever, which is important to me, especially with 3 grand children to run after…and the best part is they tire out BEFORE I do! In the beginning I had no muscle definition in my arms, thighs, butt or stomach. Since I started working out with Erik those areas have greatly improved and after adding the kettlebells I’ve noticed even more improvement!
Brown Fitness offers the most powerful combination of cardio and lean muscle development I’ve ever seen and as the former owner of a fitness training and equipment company, I’ve seen them all. Erik approaches the workouts with just the right combination of intensity and good humor and each participant is encouraged to proceed at their own pace. The camaraderie of each class is exceptional; it’s hard to believe you can have so much fun while being pushed harder than you could imagine. I’d enthusiastically recommend Erik’s program to anyone desiring better health and top physical conditioning.
I first discovered this Fort Worth boot camp when my Co-worker and good friend invited me to join this great class with Erik at Brown Fitness. I am a very active individual, working out is my hobby and I pursue it with passion and dedication. I am athletic and strong, but feel that I still need to work in some areas of my body! My goal is to have the best definition ever…..i want rock abs:) The class is kinda out of my way, but after joining, and seeing firsthand what all the rave was about, I am more than willing to drive those extra 10 miles! It only took one class for me to really like it. The group is just fantastic, everybody has a great attitude. We all have different goals, and are in a different fitness level, but once the class starts everybody works hard, there’s not other way. My strength and flexibility have improved greatly only after a few classes! I love to be around motivated people. Erik’s performance and training skills are the best I’ve been around in the Fort Worth area. Even though it is a group class, he pays attention of everybody’s performance. He makes adjustments if he needs to and challenges you as well. Is so much fun to work with Erik, he brings out the best in you!”
I met Erik at a nearby gym the year my daughter started Kindergarten. He was referred to me by another trainer. My daughter is now a senior; that is how long I have been training with Erik! My situation at the time was one where I was a full time mother with a kindergartner and a preschooler. I knew I had the time to start working out and I was determined to find the right trainer and place. Previously, I had lived in Dallas, Texas, and working out is very important to me and I wanted to find the right person here in Fort Worth. Erik’s training was amazing from the start. He was focused and obviously very knowledgeable and cared very much about my well being and progress. Brown Fitness is amazing because it gave me an opportunity to put more cardio into my workout in a very timely fashion thereby meeting my optimum goals. My results have been great because Erik changes my workout all of the time. Never does any session become boring or repetitive. After Brown Fitness and following a healthy eating plan I’ve lost 25 pounds and feel great! Erik Brown is one of the finest trainers and people I have ever met. He far exceeds any expectations I have ever had. I would recommend him to anyone of any age and any level of physical fitness.
Erik and I originally met when a friend invited me to join her at Brown Fitness! I had taken a huge break from working out and needed to get back in shape for the summer and help boost my energy level to manage family and a full time job. Time almost prevented me from training with Erik, but with the 45 minute express workout that Brown Fitness provides, time is no longer an issue! I loved Brown Fitness from the beginning! The exercises are challenging and adjustable for all fitness levels. And, I felt like I got a great workout in a less than an hour. My energy levels are much higher and I’ve seen a huge change in my muscle mass and the toning in my arms. My legs are in the best shape they have ever been!
