As a marathon runner and triathlete, Rico has always valued fitness. So when he wanted a new high-energy endeavor, he decided to join a friend at a local cycling studio — and the rest is history. As an instructor, Rico wants his riders to leave feeling accomplished and connected to a higher self, with the desire to take charge of the rest of their day. He hopes his body-moving music choices will motivate his riders as he challenges them to take it to the next level. Rico’s rides are inspiring, motivating, and beautiful; just when you think you’ve hit your limit, he’ll push you to prove to yourself that you can do more than you ever imagined. When he’s not rocking his ride, you can find Rico knitting and crocheting up a storm.
