Rico has been a fighter all his life starting young in the streets of Peru. Learning how to fight was a must where he came from so he turned to boxing , but boxing also taught him to fight in life as well , to have discipline and always remain humble. Boxing and soccer have been a passion of Rico since a child , which then made him fall in love with fitness as a whole. Rico trained in Sitpalang PERU muay thai for about 15 months under Jaír “Lokito Crazy” Jimenez a well known Peruvian Muay Thai fighter. Later he joined TITLE Boxing Club in Springfield when it first opened and befriended Lu and Julian, it's here where he found that TITLE Boxing Club was more than just a boxing club it was a place where you can learn, train and have fun doing it in a family atmosphere. Rico quickly wanted to be part of that. His goal is to always learn everyday so that he may teach and help people in any way possible. Striving to be mentally, spiritually, and physically better than yesterday. Rico is completing his NASM (CPT)Personal Training certificate so feel free to ask him any questions you have on how to get the results you want for your body!
My personal mantra:
Pain, struggles, obstacles, adversities, enemies ... they are all just food that fuels the beast within you to fight back and never submit. Be humble or be humbled. Corazón De León
My training style is:
Striving to be mentally, spiritually, and physically better than yesterday.
What gives me my fighting spirit:
Where I come from , what I’ve been through , and the love for my familia.
Great instructor for my son. He was patient and explained every step in detail. He also knew how to motivate my son.
Coach Rico at Lions Den is an excellent trainer. His boxing knowledge, experience, expertise, and demeanor makes him the best in my book! He is very good with children as well as adults. His prices are good and he is really flexible to work with your schedule. If you're looking for a boxing trainer for yourself or your child, do not hesitate to hire Coach Rico!!
I feel the passion when training with Coach Rico and definitely learned so much in my technique.
