Rick is dedicated to positively changing the lives of others, one client at a time. He believes that designing individual programs to maximize benefits and to minimize any possible risk requires a fine balance between intense training, proper rest, exercise modification, and proper food intake. Single workout sessions are the building blocks of any long term weight training program.
