"Rick has been an outstanding teacher and coach. He is compassionate, caring, and fun. He does challenge us but he always stresses that we need to take care of ourselves first and foremost. He is very aware of each of our limitations and makes adjustments for us individually. The class ends up being like a family. We care about each other and each other's progress."
