What is the goal of EC Fitness?
The goal of EC fitness is to develop a program that is tailored to your goals and needs, while accounting for your lifestyle, limitations, current fitness level and other factors.
How does EC Fitness differ from 1-on-1 Personal Training?
EC Fitness differs from PT in that you are not coached in a 1-on-1 setting. Instead, you are given a program that is overseen by a coach. This does two things. First, it lowers the overall cost because you are not paying the coach for hourly sessions. Also, it allows you more flexibility in your schedule and location of your training.
What are the benefits of EC Fitness in comparison to classes?
The benefits of EC Fitness is that you are given a program that is specifically tailored to you. This means we can address a wide range of goals such as general fitness, athletic performance, injury rehabilitation, job performance, and health and longevity.
How do you access your individual programming?
Fitbot is website where you will find your individual programming. The site allows for instant feedback on workouts, nutrition, etc. to the coach. You can also upload videos and additional comments right into the workout for that day.
How do you come up with each personalized program? What factors into this?
There are a wide range of factors that go into developing each program. The most important factors are the clients goals and current status. Each program is written out in small blocks and then those blocks are put into longer cycles to properly plan progression through the year.
How often can people communicate with you about their experience in EC Fitness? How available are you?
Most of my clients leave comments on every single workout. I am also available via phone or email throughout the day.
What is the cost of the EC Fitness program?
EC Fitness costs $250/month with a 3-month minimum sign up. Most people are signing up for 3 months at a time. But of course the option to sign up longer is available. The program includes a nutritional template, but a more detailed nutrition plan can be created for you at an additional cost. (Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing and more details about this)
If someone was interested in EC Fitness but hesitant about whether they’d see results, what would you tell them?
I would say look at the testimonials from some of our clients. We have a wide range of people that are working towards and succeeding at their goals.
EC Fitness Program Testimonial: Mike Woodard
I suffered fractures in both my knees that stemmed from a nasty fall. EC Fitness has been a godsend during my rehabilitation. I was fearful to get back to exercising and doing any movement involving my legs. Josh sat down with me and came up with a plan that eased me back into movements and helped me build strength throughout the process. I have PR’d my strict pull-ups, bench press, and other movements and I am now back to squatting below parallel with weight and no pain. Josh has been great at staying on top of my progress and introducing new movements when I’m ready. EC Fitness is a great program, especially for someone coming back from injury.

The EC Fitness Program and Crofton CrossFit Gym Access
As a member of the EC Fitness Program, you will have access to our incredible nearly 7,000 sqft. training facility that is located at 750 Rt. 3 South, Suite 5, Gambrills, MD 21054. You will be free to use the facility at any time during operating hours, but coached floor hours are Monday through Friday from 3:30-6:30 p.m. During floor hours, it is not a group class but a coach will be on staff during this time to help you with movements and mobility in a more 1-on-1 setting.
