How to Train with Dick

Thanks for your interest in training with me. I don’t train people en masse anymore…but on the plus side, those who I do take on get my undivided attention.

The first thing I’ll say is that the way that I coach people is different than most. Many fitness coaches assume that their trainees have already built fitness habit. Subsequently, they’ll give you a training program, diet program, tell you to stick with it, then yell at you if you don’t.

That’s fine for certain trainees, especially more intermediate and advanced ones.

I’m not like that, however. I think that coaching should be more like dancing than wrestling. In other words, I’ll work with you to build habit and absorb my principles.

Let’s say you can’t adhere to one of my recommendations. I’ll know if I should push you because you’ll eventually adapt – or – work with you to find an alternative.

For example, I’ve had enough clients where I know that if a non-vegetarian has difficulty adhering to their protein amounts, they will eventually get used to it. In that case, I’ll push you to keep going. Conversely, if deadlifts don’t feel “right” for you, I may work with you to find something in the interim.

That’s the value that I bring as a coach. Sometimes, I’M the person that knows what’s best for you. Sometimes, YOU’RE the person that knows what’s best for you.

If you’re interested in training with me, shoot me an email at and tell me a bit about yourself and your goals.
