I'm Richard Manaro, a California native with a diverse background in fitness, athletics, and personal training. As a collegiate athlete, I learned the importance of the life altering skills: Commitment, Discipline, Patience, and Hard Work. These principles are the essential building blocks needed to create the life that so many only dream about.
My career as a fitness professional started at The University of San Diego where I worked as a full-time strength and conditioning intern coach in men's football and women's volleyball. At USD, I first discovered that the passion and excitement I felt as a player was even more pure and powerful when I was working as a coach.
I worked for years as a Master Personal Trainer at The Sporting Club in La Jolla, CA. I have since relocated back to my roots in the San Francisco Bay Area to continue my career as a fitness professional and life coach.
In 2016 I opened Swing Kettlebell School. This was a great experience for me in the sense that it truly taught me the value of community in the fitness world. With a strong desire to make a greater impact on the world with a much wider audience I created an online platform https://theallterrainathlete.com/ with optimism to bring fitness back to its truest form; a healthier, happier lifestyle.
My highest priority is to educate you on mastering the basics, setting attainable goals, and encouraging you to push your limits a little further; I no longer consider myself a personal trainer. I am a fitness professional with a proven ability to teach, motivate, and inspire individuals to take a leap of faith in changing their lives. Through exercise, empowering habits, a resilient attitude, and a healthy outlook, I believe we can all create any life we desire.
