Van is one ofmy “Athlete of the Month”!  At 60, Van kicks butt every time! 

Ingrid, shown above, is a wonderful Baker by trade who just happens to love Training her mind and body to see just what she can do! That’s right, Ingrid is a doer!


I have the best clients!


Andrea, in the video above, is always smiling and ready to do the “Next thing”! In the video, that next thing was pretty darn cool and difficult! Trying to balance on that board while swinging a 9 pound ball, on strings, is a wonderful feat, indeed! As you can see, she mastered it with the 2nd session! Too cool! The Trainer (RN previously)

I only do training with one client at a time. You won’t get “lost” in the crowd!

Are you bored and tired with using the same “piston style machines” that take up the majority of space in most gyms? “Progressional Fitness Training “, as well as boxing,  is about using a lot of movement, as in life, at many different angles that give you, not just lots of enjoyment, but a healthy and more “human” looking and feeling body!

I guarantee that if you add more angles properly

, that you will have a better, healthier life with less pain as you age.

As an RN* in CCU for 15 years, I saw way too much pain and yet much of it was self inflicted or was there through lack of trying. I I stopped working as an RN because I wanted to help folks from getting into “bad shape ” in the first place. Take care of yourselves! The Trainer


  • Grew up on a farm in Kentucky and learned the art of hard work and accomplishment.
  • Obtained a degree in computer programming and nursing.
  • Worked as an *RN in CCU/ICU/ER for 15 years. Stopped 12 years ago to help folks prevent from getting ill and having to go to the hospital in the first place!
  • Competed in 59 bodybuilding shows.
  • Competed in 26 Powerlifting events. Best lift squat where I did 1000 pounds in training and 850 pounds in competition.
  • Competed in over 500 foot races from 5K – 125K(126 marathons, 258 half marathons, 36 ultra marathons including the “Canadian Death Race” in 2015. The rest mostly 5 and 10Ks.
  • Spent hundreds of hours over the years sparring in boxing. It all started with “Rocky”. I was never the same after I saw that movie!
  • Have totally accepted myself for whom I am and try to always take responsibility for any choices I make. I expect the same from my clients!

So give Boxing and/or Progressional Fitness Training “a try and you will see what I mean! Rick “THE” Trainer!

•How to become a member of The Trainer’s Dream Team. (Become a client)
1- schedule a 1 hour FREE consultation to determine if you and I are a good fit. We will discuss your goals and how “we” can work together to achieve them. Please bring plenty of questions. 
2- sign a contract for 3 months once a week (all sessions are a full hour in length). See rates below. Most  start out with only once or twice a week for the first 12 weeks but after that you may sign up for as many times as you wish! This is for you! I have found over the past many years that if someone starts out doing “too much too fast” then their future fitness endeavors suffer. That is not what I want for you!
3- show up with plenty of passion and a great desire to have fun achieving the goals “you” have set for yourself! 

Rates: one session $60.00 (not the most cost effective. Scroll down
