My name is Derrick “Rico” Villarico. I earned my Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Exercise Science from West Virginia Wesleyan College where I also played Division II football. I have been in the health and fitness realm since 2014, and I am continually expanding my knowledge in the field. I work a wide range of clientele, but my primary focus is weight/fat loss and strength training.
