As they say, if you can’t coach better results than you’ve come to achieve, then maybe you shouldn’t be a coach. At Varsity House we’ve had a lot of people willing to go the extra mile and WORK for extraordinary results…and fortunately for me I never was that good!

Having never been a “natural born” athlete, I had to earn everything in the gym. In fact, freshman year in high school I was cut from both the basketball and baseball team, something that is STILL hard to admit.

At that point I felt defeated, insecure and my athletic career was looking quite bleak. I was forced into sport “specialization” with that sport being football, because that was the only sport that didn’t cut anyone! I grew up a bit, found the weight room, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Luckily for me that training instilled the self-confidence and awareness that if I was willing to work that I’d be rewarded. By the time I was a senior I was one of 3 captains for a NJ State finalist football team and wound up earning a full athletic scholarship and played for the University of Rhode Island for 5 years.

This story isn’t about me re-living my Uncle Rico glory days, I never could throw a football more than 20 yards anyway!

“It’s about knowing what it takes to leveling up athletes, adults, and gym owners to achieve results they didn’t know were possible.”

I was asked at an early Business of Strength mentorship how we “market.” I replied, ‘our client’s success will be our success it’s as simple as that.’ Our gym is not built on fancy cardio equipment, spin classes, Zumba, drop in classes or $25 gym memberships with the hope of no-shows. Look, I’m not saying there is anything wrong with different types of fitness, any movement is progress for many.


At Varsity House what we sell is top flight coaching and a training atmosphere that is one of the best in the world. Our staff wants our members, 6th graders to people in their 60’s, to enjoy a training experience that they didn’t know existed before VH. Our goal is to provide people with a place that becomes, hopefully, one of the best hours of their day.

It is our MISSION to be recognized as a world leader in strength and conditioning. Our CLIENTS success stories will be the catalyst for which this story is built.

Have a great weekend,
