Shrewsbury based personal trainer.

My name is Riccardo, but you can call me Rik.

I'm an extremely passionate personal trainer based in the Shrewsbury area and I've been qualified as a personal trainer since 2014.

Originally from Tuscany, Italy I've been living in Shrewsbury since 1989.

As a teenager, I played many sports, but when I started working split shifts in restaurants, I became inactive for many years. However, in 2006 I got back into the gym, and a couple of years later, I started playing five-a-side football. In May 2011, I went for my first run and it changed my life. Less than a year later, I ran three half marathons and a full marathon. Two years later, I ran 25 half marathons in ten months and my biggest sporting achievement is running 100 sub-2hr half marathons in 2016 in aid of Cancer Research UK.

In 2014 I left my restaurant business and qualified as a personal trainer.

I'm very proud of what I've achieved in the last few years, and I'm here to help you achieve your fitness goals, big or small. With my personal experience and qualifications, I can motivate you to change your life, whether it's weight loss, a crazy sporting challenge, or a healthy lifestyle.

As a qualified and insured Level 3 Personal Trainer, Exercise Specialist, Nutrition Coach, Fitness, and Motivation Coach, Gym Instructor, UK Athletics Licensed Leader in Running Fitness Coach, and DBS checked, I have the skills and knowledge to help you achieve your fitness goals safely and effectively.
