True Victory Is Victory Over Oneself
CONDITIONING COACH -ERICK ROOK
MINDFULNESS MEDITATION; STRENGTH & CONDITIONING; INSPIRED BY THE ART OF HUMAN MOVEMENT
In today’s world we have forgotten the very purpose of human movement which DRIVES our powerful machine.
At the House you will have the means to be well- if not in every circumstance, at least in all of the basic situations you encounter in daily life.
The mission of the House: To build a family that supports and respects one another through training and life; to cultivate an atmosphere and mindset that will continue to positively impact and inspire people to lead stronger and healthier lives.
My focus is to have the House continue to thrive in this manner long after this life is done for me.
TRUE VICTORY IS VICTORY OVER ONESELF

STRENGTH & ARMOR
While the mind is an important focus to keep fine tuned in life, so is building some level of body awareness. In this group session you’ll be able to improve your mobility, flexibility, strength, and conditioning in a fun and supportive environment. Our workouts will be extremely effective at developing muscular strength, and endurance, burning calories, and improving cardiovascular health. All of this will be achieved through using bodyweight exercises, exercise bikes, kettlebells and heavy bags with boxing and a kickboxing element.
Mindfulness can be that added edge you need to go that extra mile. The difference between reaching your goals and falling short can be a momentary lapse of focus, confidence or nerves (or both!) getting the best of you. With teaching awareness and understanding of emotions in the present moment with a non-judgmental approach, you can learn how to focus and get yourself in the zone. This session will provide you with a practical and proven way to focus and ignore distracting thoughts, reduce anxiety, increasing well-being and improving mindfulness ability to name just a few.
FURY & ICE
We live in a fast paced, rapid fire world. Patience is almost non-existent. Most everything put in front of us reflects that. I’m offering an alternative, low impact path to pull you into a different mindset for just an hour. We use a combination of martial arts, in the movement and technique form of The Art of 8 Limbs (Muay Thai Kickboxing) that originated in Thailand several hundred years ago (utilizing our hands, elbows, legs, knees), along with the Dynamic movement of Animal Qigong, that originated in China around 5,000 years. In addition to this, we include a movement prep circuit that helps fuse everything together to create a powerful movement free flow that works the mind, breath, stability, strength, control, mobility, and elasticity.
THAI BOXING CONDITIONING
Boxing is a great workout, perhaps the most challenging of all sports. Requires speed, agility, finesse, power, endurance, and ultimate mental toughness. Boxing pushes you like no other. More importantly boxing takes you further than you ever thought possible. Boxing makes you more alive than ever, more humble in defeat, and most glorious in victory. Boxing reveals the true fighter deep inside every single one of us.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I must say, being an athlete my entire life, working in gyms, and as a professional teaching tennis pro for over the last decade I truly had a misconception of what fitness was. Once I entered the House of Attilius, my preconceived ideas went out the window. I truly now grasp the idea of mind, body and spirit working in unison. Erick has a vision that incorporates connecting with the body during movement, in strength development, core conditioning, footwork, dynamics warm up just to mention a few yet all seamlessly connects and makes sense. Truly a unique experience that I’m driven to learn more about and to simply see my personal best rise. Impressive. Please try as you have everything to gain , honesty 👍
I've been working out with Erick for the past 6 weeks and have seen improvement in my strength and endurance. Erick's unique exercise plan is carefully well-thought out. He starts with an extensive warm-up using controlled breathing techniques, circular joint movements and stretches to avoid injuries. Thereafter, a circuit of strength and endurance exercises to increase the heart rate for four sets with the right amount of rest in between, and then followed by conditioning. For cool down, more controlled breathing exercise. Erick is astute and quick to correct my form. Not only is he very knowledgeable with fitness but he also complements his plan with a nutritional food plan recommendations that make sense. Erick's warm personality, professionalism, and a positive attitude keep me coming back every week. Thank you, Erick!
I stopped in for a mid day mindful meditation and it was just what I needed to break up the busy day! Erick was very patient and informative as he guided me through some Qigong . I look forward to trying his higher intensity class option and highly recommend House of Attilius!
I have been having a hard time finding a gym I love since my favorite gym closed a few years back. I am really into Muay Thai, jiu-jitsu, and meditation training. I have been looking for something different for some time now because I am tired of the fads and basic gyms. I want to workout, but I want to take care of my body as well. Luckily I ran across a unique and very different gym called House of Attilius. They have three different programs you can choose from. I went and took the Fury and Ice class which was a combination of Muay Thai and Qigong movement. It was fun, challenging, and exciting as I have never experienced anything like it. As a coach, Erick was very patient and knowledgeable. Any questions I had, he was there to answer them. You can tell that he is very passionate about what he does, and doesn't just talk; he walks the walk. Finding a fun and challenging gym is already tricky; on top of having an owner who cares about their clients is rare. I can't wait to take another class.
I highly recommend contacting Erick for guided meditation services. he's very knowledgeable about the body, the energy, and really grounding you and calming the thoughts of the mind. I can't recommend him enough! Five stars all the way.
