RICKY FEDER

Ricky Feder - Personal Trainer

For the past 2 years, Ricky has trained a very diverse clientele with various ages, backgrounds, and goals ranging from strength, power, weight loss, rehabilitation, and muscular composition development. Ricky wasn't raised in an athletic field as he personally struggled with his weight at a young age. Ricky decided to make a change in his life and was able lose 40 pounds of fat mass through a healthy diet regimen and small (yet, continuous) efforts to remain physically active. He would do this by engaging in activities such as trail hikes and by riding his bicycle. This pursuit of leading an active, healthy lifestyle inspired Ricky to join the football team in high school where he learned about basic strength principles, dedication, and perseverance. This then took Ricky to find a passion in weightlifting/power lifting. Ricky found his personal accomplishments to be so inspiring that he then decided to pursue a career in personal training - he would then attend the National Personal Training Institute in Colorado. Overall, Ricky is eager to teach his clients how to not only enjoy physical activity, but to show them effective ways to reach their personal fitness goals in a variety of settings, no matter their perceived limitations and life experiences.
