Rich is thrilled to be a personal trainer at BAC. He started working Front Desk in December 2021, and nine months later he became a certified personal trainer for the club. A fitness enthusiast for over a decade, Rich competed in cross country and track & field at the high school level, then served in the military for 5 years, and is now a collegiate athlete. He is currently majoring in psychology with a minor in sport psychology at Western Washington University. He plans on acquiring a master’s degree in sport & performance psychology following graduation.
Rich is a varsity collegiate rower on the WWU Men’s Crew team. Last year, Rich and four other teammates beat 25+ collegiate rowing clubs to win gold at the national championship in Oakridge, Tennessee. As a competitive rower, Rich trains religiously in cardiovascular conditioning, strength development, and power. He wants to share his appreciation and expertise in physical training with anyone interested in improving their physical fitness and overall well-being.
As a personal trainer, Rich strives to apply his knowledge of physical development, sport psychology, and kinesiology to help achieve the goals of his clients. He works with a wide range of clientele, from adults with little to zero exercise experience to long-time athletes. He also enjoys working with adolescents. Rich has been a middle-school Track & Field and Cross Country Coach for Bellingham Public Schools for three sport seasons. No matter what your fitness background may be, Rich will be excited to meet with you to discuss a program that best suits your needs and experience.
When not in school, doing homework, or working, Rich will usually be hanging out with friends, cooking, exercising, or reading. Although he loves reading many different genres of books, these days he primarily reads books related to psychology, science, or coaching to further his career development. He also finds a lot of joy being in the outdoors and seeing new places. Occasionally you’ll find him watching a good T.V. show or movie.
