SCW Certified Personal Trainer
Ricky Salinas grew up in a suburb of Chattanooga, TN. As a kid, he was always physically active including instructing advanced gymnastics and cheerleading for four years at Garner's Gymnastics in Hickson, TN. Throughout middle school and high school, he played football, track and soccer, which advanced his passion for weightlifting over 10 years ago during ROTC and football.
Ricky began competing in Physique in 2013 where he won his class at the Knoxville Classic, won his class and the overall at Music City Muscle and took third place at Kentucky Muscle. He then decided to transition to bodybuilding and will compete in his first show this year.
Being a personal training is the best career that Ricky could have asked for - he truly enjoys teaching others what he has learned. Most recently, he has come to enjoy training teenagers in sport conditioning; he loves trying unique activities to keep them focused and they keep him on his toes. You will also get a quick glimpse of Ricky riding his motorcycle through Providence.
