Eric Cafferty

Born and raised in Boise Idaho, Eric began competing in competitive sports from a very young age.  In high school he began to devote the majority of his time to travel hockey as well as the weight room.  Graduating high school a year yearly he began college to pursue a career in medicine.  That all took a turn when he discovered competitive bodybuilding.  Competing as a natural he won 5 teen titles in his first year competing.  Along with attaining his bachelors of science in exercise physiology, bodybuilding opened the door to his passion for coaching.  In 2015 after 7 years of coaching hundreds of successful physique athletes and powerlifters, he opened The Mecca Gym, a facility not only dedicated to improving public health and fitness but providing a facility suited toward coaching elite athletes, specifically physique athletes and competitive powerlifters.  While his passion lies in individualized coaching, he has set out to advance elite level training and nutrition practices that can be utilized by anyone looking to improve their heath and fitness levels.
