Who is Rich Barretta
Rich Barretta is considered to be one of the best personal trainers in the country. Rich started as a bodybuilder in the 1980’s, winning every title he competed for including the prestigious Mr. America title in 1987. Rich parlayed his knowledge and experience into a successful career training a widely varied clientele that come to him for their individual fitness needs. A true fitness innovator, Rich doesn’t rely on conventional methods of exercise, but instead uses his vast knowledge of biomechanics along with his artistic eye to develop personalized programs for his clients. When it comes to training, these programs consist of Rich’s method of Target Training. Target Training uses specific principles and training methods to target the body for a client to reach their specific goal. It is not “one size fits all” training. Rich also employs a no-nonsense, no gimmick approach to nutrition. Rich doesn’t tell his clients what they “have to” and “can’t” eat, but instead Rich teaches how to make smarter choices without disrupting a client’s personal lifestyle. To Rich, it is about a lifestyle.
For the last thirty years Rich hasn’t only been training clients, but has been training trainers. Rich was the exclusive teacher to the trainers at some of the country’s best-known gyms and health clubs: Gold’s Gym, Equinox Fitness Clubs, and David Barton Gyms to name a few. Rich has a vast knowledge in Biomechanics, exercise science and nutrition. He holds certifications in NASM, ISSA, A-I Flexibility, PNF, and Pre/Post Natal exercise. It’s this combination of science, coupled with his 30 years of practical experience that have made Rich Barretta a powerhouse in the fitness world.
