About Derrick

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.

My favorite quote

“It’s been said that it’s not where you start, but where you finish. I say there is no finish line.” -Steve Cook

My training philosophy

Be functional and train for longevity.

My training experience

I have been formally personal training since 2018, started taking free clients in 2014, and have been working out personally since 2008. I was a DII collegiate athlete who played football.
