Born in Middle East, where he was an active 'Mowgli' esque child.

Moved back to UK with parents and had to readjust to UK school life.

Sport in particular Rugby provided an outlet for physical expression and to gain acceptance.

Rugby prowess grew, in conjunction with growing into an adult and acclimatising to a changing world. Pushing harder and training more his body started to show weakness.

UK Rugby coach advised accepting offer to play rugby in New Zealand. This was to be the step change in Richie's evolution.

Sheep shearing, beer and rugby in New Zealand, life became simple.

At the end of Rugby, Richie moved to Australia, discovering the concept of mobility, liberating himself from pain and restriction which held him back.

Yoga and capoeira followed, leading to surfing and various ventures from radio shows, to personal training.

Finds himself on a yacht crew, packing a surfboard and sailing to Bali. 

Swims unknowingly with sharks!

Now training a wide range of clients and other serendipitous moments have led him to realising his purpose to inspire others and share with them their own potential for creating the best version of themselves.
