Erick Schlimmer earned his Master's in kinesiology at San Jose State University in December of 2016, his personal training certificate from the American College of Sports Medicine in January 2017, and started working at Stanford University as a personal trainer at Stanford's National Accelerator (SLAC). He is now a golf instructor for the Physical Wellness division of the Department of Athletics, Physical Education, and Recreation. After finishing his Master's coursework at SJSU and presenting his thesis research at the International Conference of Sport and Society in 2013, Erick worked as a lecturer and teacher's associate for Dr. Jessica Chin and her Introduction to Kinesiology course. His recent research publication is an examination into NCAA consideration of psychiatric disorder and the mental health professionals'​ perceptions regarding clinical challenges they experience when working with NCAA Division I student-athletes. Erick also earned a BA in psychology with an emphasis in abnormal psychology from the University of California, Santa Cruz and an Associate of Arts degree in sociology from Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, California. His main research interests include the physiological and psychological benefits of physical activity and the psychopathology of elite athletes while centering much of his personal, professional, and social focus on health, nutrition, fitness, and wellness. Within athletics, Erick has coached youth sports including basketball and golf and was an intercollegiate golfer and American football player at Foothill College in California and the University of Stirling in Scotland, respectively. He is currently pursuing golf professionalism through the PGA of America at Stanford University while teaching PhysWell golf and his class, Foundations of Health and Performance Psychology on campus. Outside of sport, fitness, and academia he spends as much time with his wife, nieces, and parents as possible, enjoys growing golf practice turf, tinkering in golf club building and fitting, and volunteers much of his time to at-risk populations through various SF Bay Area mental health programs.
