Eric Richards, CSCS

Assistant Strength & Performance Coach

In May of 2015 I graduated The Nebraska Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Science in Health and Fitness Studies and a Business Administration minor.  While at Nebraska Wesleyan, I was a three year starter at cornerback for the prairie wolves defense. Off the field during my Junior and Senior year I was the president of the Wesleyan FCA organization (Fellowship of Christian Athletes). During my high school and collegiate career, I had an unmatched passion for maximizing my athletic abilities. Combining that with a desire to help others has lead me to the field of strength and conditioning where I have now worked with a variety of athletes ranging from grade school to collegiate athletes.

During the summer of 2014 I was an intern here at The Xplosive Edge. I choose X-Edge because in high school I played alongside and competed against one of their athletes. Seeing how advanced he was in the weight room with sound technique and superb strength I always wondered what went on at the Xplosive Edge. Throughout my internship I began to understand why the Xplosive Edge helped maximize my peer’s athletic talents. Through hands on coaching, with specialized and science based programming I began to see that X Edge gave athletes the best possibility to succeed.

A little over a year after my internship I received my CSCS through the NSCA. I was also granted the opportunity to join the X-Edge staff as an assistant strength and conditioning coach. Now in my new role I bring a high energy and positive coaching style mixed with the established training protocols at The Xplosive Edge to help all athletes reach their maximum potential.
