Ricky Montanari keeps his workout goals posted on his website, a reminder to his clients that a teacher should also strive for improvement. Among other personal missions, he hopes to back-squat more than 505 pounds, dunk a basketball, and read 40 books. Obviously, his students' goals might be different—maybe they want to lose weight, or simply learn how to properly deadlift a barbell. Regardless, Ricky eagerly adjusts the intensity of his program to suit their needs. As a certified personal trainer and CrossFit coach, he utilizes weightlifting, interval training, and gymnastics techniques during his classes. Guests can expect to heft kettlebells and perform bodyweight exercises as they sweat through his routines, which are meant to safely challenge and reset their individual limits.
