Testimonials

“I originally hired Rick as a trainer to help me lose weight, but there was a bigger reason; pain. As a dentist, I am constantly leaning over to one side, which resulted in “postural challenges” over the years. That combined with being overweight led to chronic pain. Just getting in and out of my car became unbearable. The training sessions were great! After each session, the pain initially subsided for 2-3 days, and eventually I became pain-free! As a coach, Rick was able to keep me on point in between training sessions with my diet and the special exercises I needed to perform. Rick is empathetic, sincere, and very competent. I’m not sure what I would have done without him.”

Rich from Monroe, New Jersey

“I’ve known Rick for years, and I can tell you that he is one of the best health and lifestyle coaches I have ever met. He brings empathy when discussing my struggles and goals. Many coaches are thinking of how to respond while they listen to their client. However, Rick sincerely listens with the intent to understand first. This important quality enables him to provide individualized coaching that is much more genuine and effective. Rick’s sincere coaching style also enables him to have long-lasting client relationships that are built on trust. I know can call him any day, at any time, and he will always give me the guidance that I need. I will forever be indebted to Rick for all of his contributions to my life.”

Jon from Portland, Oregon

“I lost over 50 pounds with the support and guidance of my health coach, Rick. Using the tools and skills he taught me, I am happy to say that I’ve also kept it off by continuing to put his techniques into practice. Before starting with him, I felt very out of control with my eating. Rick taught me how to take back control, and how to make healthy eating and exercise a new way of life that fit into my busy schedule. Rick is not only a mentor and coach, but also a friend, someone I have reached out to at different times over the years when I’ve hit roadblocks. In every instance, he worked with me to push past them and continue towards my long-term health and wellness goals. I truly believe Rick played a large role in my success, and I will be forever grateful to him.”.

Melissa from Seattle, Washington

I first met Rick back in 2010 at Can Do Fitness in Princeton, NJ. I had heard about this trainer called, “The Animal” so I set an initial appointment with him. I told him, “I don’t want to be your friend, I don’t want conversation… I want you to I want you to make me vomit!” I still remember that look he gave me with that sinister smile as he said, “let’s begin” – he then proceeded to kill me. I immediately signed up for 12 more sessions. Over the years I’ve used Rick’s services any time I needed that “mental ass-kicking” to get me back on track or take it to the next level. If you’re looking for badass coach that dishes out “tough love” then Rick is your guy

Pete from South Brunswick, New Jersey

“I would highly recommend Rick because he was skilled at guiding me through the twists and turns of healthy living. He’s very knowledgeable about health and nutrition, which helped me to set solid, realistic goals. He’s patient without being permissive, which helped me to stay focused on tasks. What sets him apart though, is his ability to be an astute listener, which helped me realign goals and course correct when necessary – ultimately getting to a higher-level goal than I had originally set. All-in-all Rick is a great coach and I would highly recommend him!”

Lisa from Reading, Pennsylvania

“I’ve done diets, popular weight loss programs, and purchased tons of books to manage my weight, but nothing ever helped me keep the weight off long term. One problem was lack of accountability. Another problem was the way I looked at food; I bought the lie that they (Big Agra, Big Pharma, etc.) were selling. Hiring Rick as my Health Coach was one of the best decisions and investments I’ve ever made. Not only has he shown me how to be accountable, but he shattered my misconceptions about dieting. His common sense approach to eating has helped me to lose over 30 pounds and keep it off for a year!”

Mike from Gresham, Oregon

“Rick is compassionate, intelligent, and thoughtful. He understands the complicated issues surrounding eating, exercise, and weight management. With his support I am maintaining a 40-pound weight loss.
