Erik Bartlett

Owner and Founder

I was always taught that anything is possible with hard work. I didn't understand that until later in life. You have to experience things in order for you to truly understand. At age 17, I found myself weighing 270 lbs and knowing I would have to make a major life change. Once I accepted that the change was only going to come from hard work, I accepted the challenge. I learned so much about myself, but most importantly, I found myself. In that journey I also found running. At the time, I never knew how big that would be! Today, I am a hundred pounds lighter, own one of the best running stores in the country, and have the most amazing wife, son, and daughter. I truly am a lucky man!
