Rick's work with one of my daughters has helped her view herself in a better light.  She has stopped comparing herself to her twin sister and is now competing in cross country and soccer more confidently.

I attended Rick's talk in April and when it was done, I wanted more!  His online course took me farther and has provided skills that will help me the rest of my life, in all areas of my life.

Rick worked with our son from sophomore to senior year in high school when our son was doubting his abilities.  Rick guided him to improve his self-talk as well as preparing him mentally for competitions.  The improvement in our son's self-image was significant and he became one of the best runners on the team and was recruited to run in college.

-Encouraging: Incredibly encouraging and keeps me going when I'm ready to give up. Great with saying things like "You've got it. Keep going!" Always gets me back on the right track.

-Supportive: Supportive of the fitness journey, constantly checks in to see how I'm doing when I'm away from the fitness studio. You acts like a friend, more so than a scary trainer and you're there to see me do well.

-Educated: You know a lot about fitness and personal training and it's very obvious in how you plan the workouts, from the stretches we do before and after and how you help me to continue when I'm away.

-Flexible: From timing of days and adjusting to my needs the day of a workshop, he's great at adjustment. Also great at adjusting to what I cannot and can do during a particular workout circuit.

-Positive: Never negative, from your own life to what we're doing during at the personal training studio. Always looking on the positive side and celebrating small successes.

-I think that you're absolutely fabulous at what you do. I consider myself so lucky to have you in my life!

As a trainer I would describe you as very client-centered with a focused empathy, along with a hopeful compassion for physical change and body health for people struggling with injuries. I am glad that you are helping me on this journey!

Rick coached me for running events in my mid-twenties. I would describe my experience working with Rick as motivating and challenging but paced smartly so I stayed healthy! It was easy to approach Rick

to discuss the coaching plan. He addressed my questions readily. I really appreciated our first meeting in which Rick had me clarify my goals. I felt like Rick had great knowledge about healthy and effective training programs that would get me to my goals. As a result, it was easy to trust in his coaching. Rick was able to see my strengths physically and helped me focus my training on that for greater success. Rick was one of the best coaches I have ever worked with. I can highly recommend him as a coach and trainer.
