He takes his time to tailor fit your workout to help you reach your goals. He understands each person is different and has the ability to recognize and adapt to each person in a group session.

5 Star Review / 01/2019

I met coach Rick in Hawaii looking for improved fitness through a personal trainer. His impressive athletic accomplishments lead me to choose him. After a few sessions, he really encouraged me to learn about triathlons. We worked together through a really difficult time in my life and became my friend as well as my coach.

He prepared me for my first triathlon with an impressive podium finish for a rookie and my first podium 10k. I’m positive that would not have been the case without his guidance.

I remained his athlete through relocation thousands of miles away. Six years later he remains my coach and is always there when I need him. He takes into account not only the raw data that you provide through TrainingPeaks, but everything else in your life that would impact your performance. Nutrition, emotional state, level of fatigue or injury, stress, etc. He uses effective coaching strategies to motivate you and I have complete trust in his race preparation, knowing I am not risking injury. To say that his coaching is personalized and effective is an understatement.

Rick and I work well together to optimize the fitness and health of our clients. It is great to know that I have a personal trainer I can trust with my patients as they transition from physical therapy to lifelong fitness.

"My husband and I spend part of the year in Kona. Last year we found and worked with Rick a couple of days a week while we were there. Rick is an excellent trainer. He is reliable, professional, friendly and really enjoyable to work with. He varied our workouts so we didn’t get bored. We will definitely work with him on our next stay! We give him our highest recommendation."

Here is my review for Personal Trainer Rick Rubio! 

I was so happy to have met Rick about 6-7 years ago, I’d been looking for a personal trainer and he was referred to me by my doctor.

I loved his approach of finding the exercise program tailored to me and my needs. He always had the info on the new and latest technologies for losing weight and gaining fitness, and always willing to teach and share!

I always appreciated that Rick too is an athlete, he’s an ‘Iron Man’, but he never made me feel less than, ever, not once! He’s always been motivational, supportive and goes out of his way to be flexible and works with me to fit in our exercise sessions.

Rick is very good at what he does and find him to be a great trainer.
