About Us

Authority CrossFit was founded with the intention to be a small, intimate training studio. Our master plan was (and always will be) to take CrossFit back to its roots – Great Personal Training.

Our unwavering dedication to maintaining the highest standards in group and personal training is what makes us the leader among other fitness programs.

Eric Tovar

DNA Certified Instructor, American Fitness Professionals & Associates Certified Personal Trainer,

Several years ago Eric would not have expected to be a certified instructor. As an accomplished musician, he found himself out of shape, and unhealthy. He then changed his life focus, and set his sights on research and study into health and fitness.
Now a few years later, he not only has achieved a high level of strength and fitness, but also has found within himself the natural ability to train others using his knowledge and experience.
