Getting to Know Rick


Rick is one of our newer Group Fitness instructors at the DAHLC.  Though he has a full time job in another area of Mayo Clinic, Rick has wellness as a priority and wants to help you achieve your goals.  When asked about what excites him about working at the DAHLC, he said it's "getting a chance to make an impact on someone's wellness.  If I can inspire one person to make a change in life, all the hard work I do to prepare for my classes is worth it."  And a quote that inspires him? "Clear your mind of can't."
