MEET THE BEST COACHES IN EL PASO

About five years ago, my fellow firefighters introduced me to my first cross-training workout. We wanted to begin a training regimen that would not only prepare us for the line of duty, but would also prepare us for the “Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge“. The combat challenge is a firefighter sport that we participated in at the time – ever since that butt-kicking I’ve been in love with the cross-training methodology. A few months later I became certified as a coach, sold my truck, and used the money to buy some equipment and two weeks later I had my first workout in my garage. A couple of weeks passed and my home gym had turned into a business; within a year we had moved out of my garage (and thanks to my cousin) into a small, 1,000 square foot warehouse. I’d assume that my commitment and passion for seeing others succeed is what brought people into my gym. In what seems like the blink of an eye – four years later I find myself in a 6,500 square foot facility with a group of friends that believed in me and trusted me with their goals. Now we offer two locations to serve our members in addition to providing cross-training, Powerlifting, Olympic Weightlifting and personal training programs to suit anyone.  My love for health and fitness has led me here and I am forever grateful for my friends and the members of RKU Athletics – their success is my true passion – I can’t tell you how much I love to hear about members meeting goals, setting new personal records, and hearing about how much better they look and feel. I won’t ever be able to say it enough – the RKU family keeps my fire burning.
