Ricky is a grad from Loyola Marymount University. And before he got into training, he spent much of his youth on a couch. He was of the generation that didn’t play outside nearly as much as it should have. One day he discovered exercise and changed his entire life. Today he does what he did for himself; train individuals to move, and watch it change every area of their life. He holds four certifications with the National Council of Certified Personal Trainers, Crossfit, USA Weightlifting, and CrossFit Defense. But the wealth of his knowledge is from the wisdom of training and applying these methods to work for others. He values the art and science of exercise and nutrition and will forever be a student and practitioner of fitness. He has trained professional and college athletes, senior citizens, single moms, accomplished business persons, children, teens and nearly every demographic you could think of.
