vice president of opti-fitEric Konz has spent the last 22 years developing a solid reputation in the residential and commercial fitness industry. Among his peers in the industry Eric is known for his extensive knowledge, die hard work ethic, and excellent client rapport. One quality that makes Eric standout from others in the industry is his passion for providing the best fitness equipment to suit the athletic and health needs of his clients; he goes above and beyond what is necessary to provide exceptional customer service and satisfaction, thus ensuring the confidence and loyalty of clients.  Eric’s passion for fitness, exercise equipment and floor design began while he was in college at the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire, WI. In college, Eric was a personal trainer, and due to his mechanical skills (acquired from assisting with the family construction business) he was often called upon to help to repair the fitness equipment at the various facilities in which he worked. In 1998, Eric graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a BS in Kinesiology, with an emphasis in Corporate Fitness.  Following graduation, Eric worked with major residential and commercial exercise equipment distributors, excelling in sales and marketing, and at the same time gleaning extensive equipment and design knowledge.  As his career flourished, so did his desire to fulfill his dream of creating a company that provides personal fitness solutions to fit each individual client’s needs.  In 2011, this dream became a reality as he formed Opt-Fit International Inc. with his good friend and partner, Steve Colwell.  Originally, Eric is from Sheboygan, WI and of course is a huge Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Bucks fan.  Currently, Eric resides in Folsom, CA.  In his leisure time Eric enjoys spending quality time with his daughter, mountain biking, working out and testing new equipment, playing basketball, watching sports, skiing, boating, camping, socializing with friends and family and exploring the many treasures Northern California has to offer.  Folsom, CA is proving to be a perfect location for Eric to indulge his love of fitness and the outdoors.
