I had been suffering from back problems for several years off and on. I started weight training as a young teenager and and became a plumber at 20. By my thirties my back was wrecked. I called Rick Binder to see about getting into better shape and to try to get my pain under control. He sent me to a recommended a Doctor who treated me for my pain and then to another trusted Doctor for my chiropractic adjustments until I was ready to start my physical training and beyond. Rick worked with both doctors to come up with a fitness routine which works for me by keeping me out of pain, aside from muscle soreness, and has helped me lose weight and waist size. Plus Rick is very affordable and always very friendly and helpful. Thanks to Rick and the help of other Health professionals in his network I'm feeling better and my health is improving and I'm pain free!

I came to Rick looking to re-learn other ways to work out without getting injured. I highly endorse Rick for his knowledge in corrective exercise and interest in his client's health. He evaluates your abilities based on your pain and injuries and develops an exercise plan that's customized for the client. Not only did he help heal my tricep/shoulder injury, he also strengthened the muscles around them so that my range of motion and strength was improved, and better than before. Rick has various ways to introduce different muscle workouts without you ever getting bored. Thank you Rick!

Rick is an extremely knowledgeable and personal fitness expert. He is very professional when dealing with clients and knows his stuff. As a certified TRX instructor he can get you performing at your best. I highly recommend Rick for anyone looking at getting in shape and staying in shape.

My fiance and I have been training with Rick for a couple of months now, and we absolutely love it! Both of us are computer nerds, and haven't consistently worked out in several years. Rick developed a challenging but approachable work out plan for us, and we're getting tronger every week! Thank you, Rick!!

I just had the most amazing workout session with personal trainer, Rick Binder! I've been working out since pre-teen years and this was the most fun, productive and yet exhilarating training I've had yet! I highly recommend working with Rick.
Rick is a wonderful person. He truly cares about his clients and works with them as individuals. He’s not one of those ‘one size fit’s all’ types. I’ve learned that I can do much more than I ever thought possible. Thanks Rick!
Rick is the perfect combination of tough and warm, and he works with the whole person -- mentally, emotionally and physically. I am stronger and more flexible, I have better balance and most importantly, working out has become fun because of his efforts. I recommend him without reservation.
Rick has been training me since January 2013 with weekly trainings. I have lost and kept over 10 pounds off, and feel my body getting leaner and more fit each week. The weekly meetings are so diverse, with different exercises each week. He always is mixing it up and making it fun. Rick has worked with me when I was not feeling my best and have modified the exercises to fit my individual needs. I highly recommend Rick to anyone in the San Diego area seeking a personal trainer
I’ve always hated the gym, so when Rick suggested we try exercising in at the park by my home I was keen to give it a try. I am always surprised at the exercise options we have and the unique and challenging workouts Rick brought to the table – it makes working out much more enjoyable and the results don’t lie. I’ve lost 10 pounds in just 6 weeks and I feel great!
I have worked with other personal trainers, but Rick is the strongest in terms of knowledge and providing a challenge in a fun and exhilarating environment. I can feel myself gain endurance and strength. Rick takes the workouts seriously and genuinely wants his clients to feel the results. The best part is that he will accommodate his clients needs by coming to them or working outside.
Rick took into account my fitness goals and designed challenging and fun workouts to steadily move me in the direction I want. I started seeing results very quickly. He is knowledgeable and he is a great motivator to keep me on track.
Rick is an expert in his field with many years of experience. I enjoyed working outdoors and the workout was structured to movements you do everyday not just a boring routine you would do at the gym day after day. Rick makes it fun and mixes things up so you enjoy the time you invest to improve your health.I would highly recommend Rick Binder!
I’ve worked out with many trainers. Lately I’ve been working just one day per week with Rick . I added my day with him to what I’d already been doing (Pilates and TRX). In just 4 weeks my body fat has noticeably dropped and my abs are becoming clearly visible. It’s a goal I’ve been working towards since September.
Not only that - he makes it fun. We laugh a lot and every week is different! If your training is in a rut or you want to just try something different, I’d suggest getting in touch with Rick!
Rick is very knowledgeable about the body and out it works. I had some specific areas of my body that I wanted to shift and he was excellent in guiding me through some exercises that made a huge difference.
I have always been self conscious about going to the gym. I love the privacy and the custom designed workouts that Rick provides in the privacy of my home. I’ve seen results and get the encouragement I need without feeling self-conscious.
