As a two sport athlete all through high school, Rick was able to stay in great condition until he suffered a torn MCL in his right knee. During the 6-month recovery process, Rick had gained some weight and became very sedentary. Soon the time came that he felt that he had lost control of his health, which is when he decided to make a change and started exercising regularly. After some time, Rick fell in love with working out and the way that being healthy made him feel. This is when he decided that this passion was so strong that he wanted to dedicate his life to helping people through the same problems he faced.

After an injury caused me to end my ice hockey career , I entered into the fitness industry not as a trainer, but as a client. I had completely lost myself both physically and mentally, and fitness helped refocus me and help me find my true passion. I decided that my purpose in life was to show people that anything is possible, not just in the gym but in life! I became a certified personal trainer in 2009, after graduating from the National Personal Training Institute in Orlando, Florida. I have worked for Lifestyle Family Fitness and Core BodyFX both in Orlando, as well as Vent Fitness here in Latham. I believe being a great trainer is more than just giving people great workouts. I believe in educating people. I believe in helping them understand the "WHY". WHY do we have them perform a certain exercise? WHY is this food is a better choice than that food? I've found that this method ensures that the healthy changes we make aren't just short term changes,but rather lifestyle changes that can be carried on.
My areas of expertise are total body transformation, athletic performance.
I have helped dozens of people, both male and female, achieve things that never thought were possible. My passion and energy are contagious and my attention to detail allows US to stay locked in on whatever goal that WE are attacking.
To me, being a trainer allows me to truly live my dream. It's a lifestyle I love and I wake up every morning looking forward to helping as many people as possible take steps towards becoming whatever or whoever they want to be. I look forward to bringing nothing but positivity and energy to our sessions.
