Rich Thomas grew up as one of the little guys. Still a very athletic individual, he played and excelled at many sports growing up. Soccer, track and field, football and basketball to name a few. After injuries had limited his sport involvement and personal hardships had affected his well being, Rich decided to change his life for good. Finding CrossFit was the catalyst for this change. After his first CrossFit competition in 2010, just six months into the sport, RIch decided to become a trainer.
Currently based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Rich is an experienced CrossFit coach and competitor who is passionate on training individuals and groups to reach their fitness goals. Together with his identical twin brother, who is a professional chef, they have merged the balance of fitness and healthy eating into helping create balanced lifestyles for individuals.
Outside of the fitness world Rich is passionate about food, travel, writing and the pursuit of knowledge and also knows how to throw a good party.
