I LOVE working with people and helping them be the best they can be! I've been in the fitness industry for 20 years now, training a full spectrum of clients from professional athletes, to on camera celebrities, to individuals who are just beginning to learn about fitness and their physical body. With a Sports Medicine Degree from Northwestern, and Master Certifications from ISSA, NASM, ASFA, and ACE, I have the knowledge and ability to communicate, listen, inspire, and personalize each program to suit your individual needs. I hope I get the opportunity to work with you! One promise I make to all my clients is that I will give you my very best, and you should expect nothing less. Together our motivation is this; "It's your body. It's your future. It's your responsibility."

"When I found Richard I was overweight, had incredible back pain from a lower disc bulge and a super weak core. Richard changed all that for me and turned my life around. Motivated me with such a caring and professional spirit. He also has this ability to make the training fun and inspiring. Understanding and adapting to your personal needs. Plus he stays in tune with current trends, new education and has a wealth of knowledge in a wide range of training programs. I couldn't recommend him more. He is a gem. A prince among men."

"Having worked out with many trainers over the years in LA I've realized you can have it all! Not only does Richard get you camera ready results (if that's what you are looking for) he also makes it fun and is one of the nicest guys in the business. I can't recommend him enough, whether you are training for a role or just for personal growth."

"To say Richard goes above & beyond is an understatement! I began coming to him as an ex-competitive athlete with an injury and he has not only helped ease me back into exercise but has also been able to gain back lost confidence. He is knowledgeable in PT and is able to really personalize each workout, "diet" plan, and any other mental hurdles you may go through day to day. At the end of the day the focus is always on you, the client. Don't miss out on a quality trainer & friend!"
