Ricky has been playing sports for almost as long as he’s been walking. Spending the majority of his childhood on the golf course or the basketball court, he worked his way to becoming a scratch golfer at the age of 14, as well as playing basketball for the prestigious Saint Ignatious College Prep. While attending Saint Ignatius, Ricky began weight lifting as a way to improve his sports performance, and the habit stuck. Within a few years he left his academic path in math and economics to begin his training career at The Bay Club in San Francisco. After a successful tenure at the Bay Club, Ricky decided to go independent and begin training at DIAKADI, where the facility is much better geared towards the functional and performance driven exercises that he loves to use.
Since then Ricky has worked with hundreds of people from all kinds of demographics. The variety and individuality of each client is what keeps personal training fresh and engaging for him. Ricky enjoys reaching into his large arsenal of exercises to make sure each client has a routine that is tailored for their specific body and goals. Ricky also has a passion the nutrition side of fitness. He believes that no matter what your goal, your success is predicated just as much on how you eat as it is how you exercise. With this in mind, Ricky makes sure that all his clients have a deep understanding of the science behind nutrition and how best to approach it for their specific goals.
