Senior Exercise Physiologist, Canyon Ranch in Lenox
A member of the Canyon Ranch Exercise Physiology department since 1998, Richard earned a Masters of Kinesiology at Indiana University and is a USPTA certified tennis professional.
Concerned about the minimized role of physical activity in today’s society, and its associated health risks, Richard is passionate about inspiring guests to engage in regular exercise to improve their current state of health and live more active, joy-filled lives. In particular, he’s a strong believer in the power of aerobic fitness to stem the risk of high body fat, insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease. Other areas of interest include endurance training, event goal setting, swimming, and cycling instruction.
In his free time, Richard enjoys getting outdoors and doing some old-school work around the house or in the garden. Playing tennis, running a basketball court or hiking up a mountain are his preferred way of breaking a sweat.
