Rich has spent the last 15 years studying exercise, biomechanics, neurology, massage and bodywork. His passion is helping people move more efficiently and comfortably. He continues to educate himself in the field of body work and movement. Most recently he attended an advanced myofascial training workshop.
After receiving his bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Sport Science from Oregon State University in 1998, Rich was a personal/group trainer for a few years. His clientele at the time was comprised of those experiencing some sort of injury or physical limitation. He began using a lot of hands on bodywork techniques and soon realized he wanted to get licensed as a massage therapist. Since then Rich has been using a blend of exercise, movement therapy and massage/bodywork techniques to help his clients move more efficiently, easily and without pain.
In his leisure time, he enjoys training his competitive freestyle Frisbee dogs, Makani and Allie, golfing, kiteboarding, martial arts, drumming, spending time with his wife Katie and…….as of the last few months, Crossfit.
Rich is confident that he can use his knowledge, experience and expertise at Beaverton Strength and Conditioning to help the athletes here achieve ridiculous levels of performance and wellness.
