Eric J. Stratman, Master Trainer/Nutrition Specialist

Eric Stratman

Owner/Head Coach

He was only a boy of 15 when Nike blasted the airwaves with their now iconic slogan, “Just do it!” No sweeter, or sweatier words, could have been said to this ambitious athlete. Two short years later, at 17, Eric Stratman was a certified personal trainer who, to this day, still possesses the same determination. Eric is not a person who takes a catchy phrase and uses it as a daily platitude. No, he clearly takes the attitude from the most inspirational brand statements of all time and applies it to his daily life, both at work and at home.

From early on, people recognized Eric’s innate ability to teach, guide and motivate others. This aligned perfectly with his goal of helping others attain physical fitness and nutrition goals. Now almost thirty years later, Eric has used his vast knowledge in the fitness and nutrition field to help many attain their personal health goals. He has trained individuals across a broad spectrum from professional athletes to rehab patients, and many functional fitness athletes. With his pleasant communication and effective motivational skills, Eric makes the road to achieving goals a smooth and enjoyable process.

Eric’s experience ranges from personal training to management. He has held management positions at both the Powerhouse Gym and Bally Total Fitness. He has expertise in consulting and assisting with High school and College strength programs. He later owned two successful personal training studios. For 10 years, Eric owned and operated TNL CrossFit, (now CrossFit eXult) catering to all walks of life. From helping individuals lose over 100 lbs., to getting athletes to their peak physical condition, Eric’s passion is reflected in each person he works with.

Married to his beautiful wife, along with their two children, Eric enjoys living his dream every day.

Eric has held over 40 certifications over the past three decades. Also attending various seminars, conferences, and events to continually grow his knowledge.

Christopher Horning


 Christopher Horning RPh
CF L-1 Coach
Chris is full time pharmacist, husband, and father of three girls. Born and raised in the Mohawk Valley, he attended Whitesboro Central School. He raced Nordic skiing for 6 years and qualified and competed in the Empire State games his junior and senior year, he also played lacrosse for four years. Trying to stay active after graduation, he began weight training along with volleyball, softball, running, mountain biking and snowmobiling and continued this for the next 20 years, rarely taking time off. He considered himself to be fairly fit until he met Crossfit in 2013. Chris was immediately hooked, the level of strength and endurance he was achieving was better than in his teens and twenties. He considers Crossfit the fountain of youth, bathed in sweat instead of water. Crossfit isn’t just a workout, it’s a lifestyle, it incorporates every aspect of health, wellness and nutrition.
Professionally, over the past 20 years he has become frustrated with the “health” system. He has witnessed patients health declining rather than improving, and most of it could have been prevented through diet and exercise. That’s when he decided to get his Level-1. It would be an excellent platform to teach the benefits of a good diet and exercise program and improve ones health both physically and mentally. People need to treat healthcare proactively not reactively.

Pete Schachtler


I love being able to transfer my knowledge of the body and movement mechanics onto our members. Motocross had consumed my life from the ages of 5-23. Climbing the ranks year by year, reaching the semi-professional class at the age of 16. Injuries would eventually slow me down and end my racing career, that’s when I found CrossFit. Being an athlete my entire life, CrossFit feels like home to me. Seeing the physical and mental growth in our members is the best part of being a coach here at CrossFit eXult.–
