Hi, I'm Rick 

"We all have a Journey:  A Beginning, a middle and an end.  When it comes to our health and fitness, this should be an integral and important part of our lives as we only have one body to enjoy this path"

From my earliest years I have always had a passion for health and performance. In my early teens I was District & County Champion in the 200 metres for 3 years.  In my early 20's I graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with a BSc in Sports & Science, during this time I had trained my body to be a boxer at one point and a bodybuilder at another!!

Sports & Personal training was always my destiny and over the ensuing 13+ years I have helped others achieve their optimal human health and performance levels.  You can view my Client Profile here.
