Personal Trainer and Body Building Coach

Hi There! I'm Richard Detering

and I am thrilled to share with you my health and fitness journey from a slightly clueless 16-year-old in the gym to a body building competitor. Over the past decade, I have weathered the highs and lows of my own fitness journey to transform myself from a chubby high schooler to the passionate advocate for health and fitness I am today. In 2022, my enthusiasm reached new heights after stepping onto the bodybuilding stage for the first time. It sparked the desire to help others achieve their fitness goals and become a personal trainer and body building coach.

Fitness is much more than just a hobby for me, it’s a lifestyle and a passion. And I cannot wait to help you on your own journey.

In my previous life as a FIFO Heavy Diesel Mechanic, I witnessed the struggles of my co-workers trying to keep fit and healthy on-site. They often struggled with unconventional workouts and a lack of guidance and support. This led me to complete my personal training certification, enabling me to assist individuals both inside and outside of the FIFO world.

I have always found joy in motivating others through my own progress. However, the ultimate fulfillment comes from working one-on-one with individuals and helping them smash their goals and transform their lives far beyond their expectations. I am a firm believer in practicing what I preach – you’ll never be told to do something that hasn’t been tried and tested by yours truly.
