Owner Profile: Eric Bishop is a native of Ohio, coming to Puerto Rico on a two-year contract to teach school many years ago, after serving for three years as a Peace Corps Volunteer to Ecuador upon graduation from Ball State University in Muncie, IN. He is married with Margaret Hill, with stepchildren Hunter, Michael and Carla – and numerous grandchildren. Bishop’s background and participation in sports, fitness and the distribution of exercise equipment is extensive. In the early stages of the fitness movement he was instrumental in bringing one of the first Universal Gym multi-station weight machines to Puerto Rico. He served as General Manager or Service Manager for over 15 years with the two most prominent local distributors of fitness/sports equipment. Perceiving a need for a business that is focused on service, Bishop opened FitnessServicePR in 2005. At a younger age Eric won many honors while participating in football, basketball, track & field and wrestling. Bishop was instrumental in the founding of the Federación de Lucha Olímpica de Puerto Rico in the ’70’s as well as the Asociación de Jueces/Arbitros de Lucha Olímpica de P.R.
