Eric Steffes Joins TAP Staff
Eric Steffes has been added to the TAP staff and is available for private and semi-private training.
Eric grew up in a small town just outside of Fond du Lac, WI called Mt. Calvary. He played multiple sports all year round as a child and eventually went on to play tight end for the Wisconsin Badger football team.
At St. Mary Springs Academy, Eric excelled as a three sport athlete earning multiple all-conference honors in baseball and all-state honors in football and hockey. He ended up playing football UW and was a four-time letter winner. Off the field, Eric excelled in the classroom and was Academic All-Big Ten all four years of his career, was a two-time Big Ten Distinguished Scholar, and received the Ivan B. Williamson Scholastic Award as a senior. He graduated with a degree in Exercise Movement Science and a master’s degree in Kinesiology. After his collegiate football career at Wisconsin, Eric spent a very brief stint in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns and played football professionally in Europe. He has now moved on from football to begin his career in Strength and Conditioning.
With years of firsthand experience training under multiple college strength coaches, Eric has learned how athletes at the highest level work off the field and utilize their training to gain strength, speed, and agility that directly translates to their performance on the field. He believes that in order for athletes to maximize their athletic and physical abilities, their strength and conditioning programs need to be individualized to each athletes body type, mobility needs, sport specific needs, and their personal goals. Eric understands that cookie cutter; one size fits all strength programs don’t allow athletes to fulfill their full potential. That is why he is constantly trying to learn different training strategies, techniques, and exercises to help kids in all sports become the best and most complete athletes possible.
