Whether they be in fitness, in life or in business, I feel I have been given this one opportunity on earth to make as much of a difference as I can for anyone who will choose to listen, and I refuse to squander it. My experience is no different…no grander and no more special than anyone else’s. I was shaped by my simple upbringings and my parents, by my service in the Army, by my family, by my wins and losses, by my involvement with Entrepreneurs Organization (EO), and by God. Everyday I’m hustling.” The guy to call when you wanna look better naked. To learn more about Rick, his organization or his mission, check out: www.fitnessporvida.com [email protected]
