Rudy's Biography


After making a commitment to improve his health, Rudy set his sights on completing his first half marathon. This led to completing a second half marathon, and eventually, his first full marathon (Air Force Marathon, September 2004). This led to him completing four additional marathons, with all five of these marathons being completed in a five month period.

At this point, he decided to pursue education into physical fitness, and he enrolled in the Physical Fitness Specialist course conducted by the world renowned Cooper Institute, located in Dallas, Texas. At this course, he acquired knowledge on fitness assessment, and on customizing fitness plans to improve a client’s flexibility, strength, and/or cardiovascular system, based on the client’s lifestyle and goals.

This led to coaching opportunities for full and half marathoners, through which he has been able to help runners of all backgrounds and abilities to “cross the finish line”. He’s since obtained certification as a Running Coach through the Road Runners Club of America, the Blue Shirt Personal Trainer through Heart Zones, and certification as a yoga instructor through YogaFit. Additionally, he has been certified as a Health & Safety Services Instructor for the American Red Cross, giving him the background and ability to train and certify others in areas such as First Aid, CPR (Adult & Infant), and use in AED’s.
