Rich has been coaching high school, collegiate and professional athletes since 2007. Rich is an expert in human bio mechanics, strength programming and sports nutrition. His programs focus on athletes becoming more resilient, powerful and strong. Rich’s mission is to transform the Roma Fitness Center into a full fledged, top notch strength and conditioning facility. Aside from teaching athletes to become really strong and quick, Rich loves the personal aspect of coaching. From helping them envision crucial competitive moments, to overcoming the devastation of a season ending injury, Rich knows that what’s happening between the ears is more important than any other muscle in the body.
