I cannot recommend Hercules Nutrition and Training enough! This program has completely transformed my life in ways that I never thought possible. Before starting the program, I had been struggling with my weight and overall health for years. I had tried countless diets and exercise routines, but nothing seemed to work for me. That's when I stumbled upon Hercules Nutrition and Training, and I'm so glad that I did. The program provided me with a comprehensive nutrition and training plan that was tailored specifically to my goals and needs. The nutrition plan was easy to follow, with a focus on whole, nutrient-dense foods that left me feeling satisfied and energized throughout the day. The training plan was challenging but manageable, and the coaches at Hercules were always available to answer any questions or concerns that I had. Within just a few weeks of starting the program, I started to notice a significant difference in my energy levels, mood, and overall health. I was sleeping better, my skin looked clearer, and I had more confidence than ever before. As the weeks went on, I continued to see progress in my weight loss and muscle gain goals, and I felt stronger and more capable than I ever had before. But the best part of Hercules Nutrition and Training is the community. The coaches and other participants were so supportive and encouraging, and I never felt like I was on this journey alone. I made some incredible friends through the program, and we continue to motivate each other to this day. Overall, I would highly recommend Hercules Nutrition and Training to anyone who is looking to transform their health and wellbeing. The program is top-notch, the coaches are knowledgeable and supportive, and the results speak for themselves. Thank you, Hercules Nutrition and Training, for changing my life!

" Derrek Eby and his team are AMAZING!!! I have had the pleasure of working with Derrek Eby from Hercules Nutrition & Training, and I couldn't be more in awe of the results and love I have experienced. Derrek's expertise in meal prep nutrition training is unparalleled. He provided me with personalized guidance that catered to my needs and goals. His knowledge and dedication helped me achieve amazing results in no time. Not only that, but Derrek's involvement with Abundance Life Coaching has created a symbiotic relationship where both his expertise and the coaching have complemented each other perfectly. I highly recommend Derrek and Hercules Nutrition & Training team to anyone looking to make positive changes in their health and fitness journey. Five stars all the way! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ "

"The best in the area! No doubt about it. The amount of detail and work that Drake and the rest of the Hercules team puts into each of their clients is amazing. Definitely the best service and results!"

Alphonso Brown

"Drake is an awesome trainer! Patient, kind, knowledgeable and humorous! Thank you Drake!"

Becky Molargik

“Derek came highly recommended by a family member and after having had two appointments at the doctor's office where I was completely ignored and dismissed by one doctor, who I couldn't or didn't feel comfortable expressing my concerns. I signed up with Derrek and saw an immediate difference. It is obvious that Derrek not only cares about his clients BUT HE WANTS TO HELP YOU. In the short amount of time that I have worked with him, I have noticed my energy levels change, I noticed a reduction in the stomach acid, and acid reflux, that was one of the main reasons that I had sought out a doctor, who upon first meeting just wanted to push pills, where the side effects were the same or worse, didn't actually care about getting down to the source. So, thank you Derrek!”

Tyler Lowe

“I never thought of myself as being one to go to the gym all the time, but working with Derrek has changed my outlook on life! It doesn’t matter what other people think about you all that matters is that you are happy with yourself. I’ve gained allot of muscle and lost fat but there is way more work to be done together! From coaching to being a friend Derrek is always there working with him has been a game changer!”

Spencer Atchison

The most dedicated trainer you’ll find. Amazing coach 💪🏽

Trent Peters

Wish I would have started sooner! Derrek is extremely knowledgeable and it shows in all aspects of his coaching. Highly recommend!

Maxwell Niblick

Derek and the whole team at Hercules have singlehandedly helped me grow on ways I never could have imagined. The greatest programming, coaching, and more importantly, customer service/satisfaction I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

Olivia Saalfrank

I was introduced to Derrek through Max who is a friend and trainer on the Hercules team. When I started working with Derrek I felt as if I had enough knowledge in the gym to feel comfortable but not to obtain the results I wanted. I knew I desperately needed diet help more than anything and quickly learned my training needed help as well. Derrek had me answer quite a few questions and designed a training and diet plan unique to my body and my goals.  Not only did Derrek make it super easy to follow the diet by giving me such a variety of options for meals and snacks but the training plan was just as easy and forward. In a very short time, I lost a significant amount of weight and gained muscle. As things progressed in my plan and I needed help to take it to the next level I did a personal training session with Drake. Drake was extremely knowledgeable and helped me take my training to the next level. During my time training with Derrek, I faced many personal challenges including furthering my college education, mental health struggles, a major career change, and an ADHD diagnosis. Not only was Derrek my trainer during this time but he also came alongside me as a friend and mentor.  Derrek was extremely knowledgeable about medications, diet, training, and everything else in between. Though I was a client of Derrek’s specifically I felt like I gained the help of the whole Hercules team and I couldn’t be more grateful. While I no longer work side by side with Derek I still find myself putting the education he gave me to use every day in the kitchen and the gym. I can’t recommend joining the Hercules community enough and hope one day to work with Derrek or one of the other team members again.

"Working with Max and the team has given me confidence while chasing my goals. You can tell they are passionate about what they do and it’s contagious. He has the ability to see your potential before seeing it yourself. The growth and changes I’ve had mentally and physically has only made me wish I started with Hercules sooner."

Sophie Vorndran

"Starting this program with Max was exactly what I needed to push myself to new limits in my fitness journey. I achieved more than I ever thought possible and am now in the best shape I’ve ever been in. Max was so supportive and encouraging through the whole process! It feels amazing seeing results so quickly because of their program. I now have the best relationship with food and the gym and have never felt so good! I can’t thank them enough and I highly recommend this team to anyone!"

Caitlyn Doty

"Experienced my first ever Hercules training workout and it did not disappoint! It was a leg day and it was brutal but in all the best ways. My quads were shaking the entire workout, the sweat was dripping and the curse words were flowing, and I was still feeling that workout days later. I worked out with Zach who was very hands on, thorough in his explanations and the best motivator! He definitely gave me the Hercules training experience!"

Keegan Mooney

"Great people, very knowledgeable!"

Karen Dawson

"I was introduced to Derrek by my adult son Seth. Seth took it upon himself to invest in my health, as I was not very motivated on my own. I simply did not know where to begin. Derrek has formulated a diet and exercise plan just for me. In about 1 month, I have successfully reduced my weight by 14 lbs. I feel more energetic and clear minded. I also do not feel as achy as when this journey first began. He is wonderful to work with. He is so knowledgeable and good at what he does! He has made himself available to answer any questions I have had. He checks in with me throughout my week to keep me accountable in a way that is uplifting and very encouraging. I am truly grateful and blessed to have you as my coach Derrek! I am also very grateful to my son for his loving act to push me into a healthier lifestyle."

Julie Teague

“Well where to start…. I am a woman that is almost 50 and dieting is hard for me at least to get any results. I started working with Derrek at the beginning of this year. I had already been kind of doing some stuff on my own the past 9 months prior and I would just find myself quitting and then getting back on etc. kind of like what they called yo-yo dieting. . Well with Derrek’s weekly, keep you motivated and moving calls, Since I have been working with Derrek I have lost a total of 90 pounds in about 10 months!! He is a very positive person and keeps me face forward even though there's some days or weeks that I don't feel like going any further. It's been great to work with him and I look forward to our future as I eventually lose the weight I need to and maybe I can start doing some personal training with him also”

Audrey Thomas

This training is so great! Keana is really helpful and motivational in helping me reach my fitness goals. Definitely recommend!

Nancy Roth

"I started personal training with Derrek in August of 2022. I had a minimal knowledge base of weight lifting and nutrition. Derrek has educated me and gave me a passion for the gym. He takes a very “No nonsense” approach to working out and nutrition. He “Keeps it real.” There are no gimmicks with his training and the diet is composed of food you would normally have at home, no special pills, potions or food in envelopes. He is never judgmental and is always very encouraging. Derrek makes getting healthy a fun, reachable, goal. I have learned so much from him in just a couple months. We work hard in the gym but have a blast doing it. Derrek is not only a great coach but has become a really good friend. I would highly recommend Derrek if you are in the market to attain your health goals. Hats off to Hercules training and nutrition! 10/10"

Peter Winkeljohn

Started this journey with Derrek and Hercules with the idea in mind of learning from the best coach around. That’s exactly what I found here. I can honestly say this is the healthiest and best I’ve looked and felt in my life. The passion, knowledge and time these coaches put into their clients is unmatched. This is one of the best decisions I have made. Hiring Hercules has helped me not only build a better body, but how to live a healthy lifestyle!

Brett Feller

Where do I begin, Derrek has helped me shift my life around from being a slob to actually feeling good and getting much much stronger. I was struggling with my dietary lifestyle for the longest time and would continue to hit plateaus on everything to where I would just stop and do whatever. Derrek has a structured plan that gives options for everything, whether it come to meals or workouts. He gives the opportunity and the option for you to still maintain a social life but still being on a plan. He’s helped shift my metabolism to where I have been able to drop weight at a good rate while gaining muscle to a max. Also my arms have grown so much from his plans and same thing with my legs. Have begun getting much more definition in everything and can’t wait to see where it takes me! Appreciate Derrek and would recommend to anyone

I will definitely continue with his program when life allows!”

Derrek helped turn my health and overall lifestyle completely around. I was overweight and unhappy with how I looked and Derrek was there every step of the way to help me with not only training but also my diet and mental health. Above an amazing trainer Derrek is an amazing friend who puts clients first and actually cares about how life is going, not if your hitting pr’s. Overall Derrek helped me lose an insane amount of fat and build muscle I’ve never been capable of before. Most definitely one of the best certified trainers in Indiana!
