Nicknamed Da Rulk by clients and friends, he often lets clients’ results speak for themselves. Whether you’re an Olympic or Professional athlete, part of Team USA youth programs, or a celebrity, he believes anyone can benefit from his mantra, #AlwaysCan! It’s just the right attitude a person needs to push through their workout and succeed.

And Da Rulk should know because over the span of his career he’s trained First Responders throughout the world from Elite Military, Fire Fighters, Law Enforcement, and Ocean Safety agencies. Take one look at his physique and you can see he takes his job seriously.   

Da Rulk suggests changing up your workout and location for inspiration and motivation. Head to the beach. Bike through the park. Take a new class – either in person or virtually – available to everyone, anywhere. 

Using an app can be very convenient for people who need flexibility. That’s why Da Rulk decided to train on the best-selling fitness app, Centr, and share his revolutionary Raw Functional Training program (RFT®) with the masses. This unique curriculum improves mobility, increases functional strength, and maximize overall body performance and conditioning.  


Da Rulk’s Tools For Success 


Hydration is key. Da Rulk says Hemp-infused water like Hemp Hydrate is his secret weapon to staying hydrated whether he’s in the gym or outdoors.


Da Rulk suggests investing in a targeted massager like The Hypervolt. The vibration in this massager helps relax sore and stiff muscles to improve mobility. 


Make your exercise routine convenient and fun. You can work out with me on @CentrFit!
