Matt Hunter: Store Manager

Home Exercise Equipment Sterling Heights MI - Fitness Consultant, Kettlebells, Treadmill - American Home Fitness - Matt_Hunter_resized
Matt has been with us for several years and likes to keep expanding his fitness universe. He likes to try new implements such as TRX, Kettlebells, BOSU, and Functional-Training, but will always tell you his first love was a Barbell.
Matt spends a lot of time developing the customer’s exercise stable with the piece of equipment that they choose, so that they can get the most out of any and every piece they have. “Even if they just had a pair of 10 lb. dumbbells, I will show them 24 ways to use those dumbbells to shape, tone, build, lose — whatever their goal is, I bundle it up in an easy-to-read diagram.”
When Matt is away from the store, he spends time with his family, playing softball, and in the Church. He works out 3-5x a week and does a little bit of everything, and he loves Bananas!

Eric Swanson: President

Home Exercise Equipment Sterling Heights MI - Fitness Consultant, Kettlebells, Treadmill - American Home Fitness - Eric_Swanson_resizedAn athlete in high school and college, Eric found his way into the fitness industry via commercial banking, of all things! He was introduced to an opportunity in the fitness industry, left his banking career to purchase the company and, 12 years later, continues to stay motivated every day by working with staff and customers on creating new and exciting ways to incorporate fitness into everyone’s lives.
Staying active after college and into family life, Eric found a passion in running and endurance sports. In an effort to drop weight, Eric began running regularly (in addition to his strength program) and after dropping fifty pounds, began entering races. Now, 13 years later, he’s completed 5 marathons, many half marathons and 4 triathlons, along with many community 5k’s and 10k’s. Eric enjoys training new runners in the American Home Fitness Couch to 5k program and bringing people to enjoy the benefits of a healthy and active fitness lifestyle. And as a Type 1 diabetic for the past 39 years, Eric also spends time helping other diabetics and their families understand the benefits of exercise as it relates to managing this disease.
Outside of the business of fitness, Eric stays busy with family activities (his wife and daughters are tennis players and his son a basketball player), going out on bike rides and running with his running buddy, his border collie Lucy.

Kelly Swanson: Accounts Payable

Kelly has always been active throughout her younger years with pom poms in high school and cheerleading for a couple years at a small college in Indiana. Currently she stays very busy with bootcamp classes, running and her favorite, tennis. Kelly played tennis with friends years ago for fun but now is involved as a (sometimes to) competitive player. She enjoyed watching both of her daughters play varsity tennis through their high school years and that is where the love of the game returned. She also stays busy with group exercise and running, which she loves to do with friends and her husband, as she likes the little extra push you get when you are with someone else.
Having two girls in college and a son in middle school she is a busy mom these days and loves having the opportunity to be there for them throughout their different stages of life as they play sports, learn and grow into confident, independent adults.
Kelly works in our main office and has been with American Home Fitness since the beginning.
