Born and raised a “Michigan Man,” Richard has been in the fitness industry for most of his life.  He comes from the old-school style of learning; by exploring the process and always believing in the thought that opening your mind to new ideas and learning is a never-ending journey.  With over 25 years of experience competing in bodybuilding shows, Richard has extensive first-hand knowledge of what it takes to lead a healthy lifestyle, coupled with his formal training through studies in exercise physiology, massage therapy, and performance nutrition.

During his career as a fitness coach, Richard has worked with a variety of clientele;  from the professional level to the general population of all age groups.  Always learning and growing is reflected in our core values at Grayling Fitness Center.

“If it is important, do it every day, if it isn’t, don’t do it at all.”
