We are excited to announce February’s R.I.P.P.E.D. Co-MVP, Chad Raymondo! Since attending his very first class seven years ago, he knew that becoming a R.I.P.P.E.D. instructor was a worthwhile decision. Through his workouts, he found a supportive community that kept him coming back year after year.
Learn how he stays motivated through the ambitious R.I.P.P.E.D. family:
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What or who got you to your first R.I.P.P.E.D. class and when did you join the family?
Chad: I took a Master class with Terry Shorter back in 2012 and signed up for instructor training at the very next class. I have loved and taught the class ever since then.
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What do you enjoy most about R.I.P.P.E.D.?
Chad: I love the team aspect of a R.I.P.P.E.D. class. We get to see each other every week, and we push and encourage each other to do our best!
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What type of results have you seen from doing R.I.P.P.E.D.?
Chad: My body has transformed ever since I started R.I.P.P.E.D., I also placed in the top 4 in the very first R.I.P.P.E.D. To Fit Challenge. I’ve seen lots of transformations in our students too; stronger, fitter, more confidence, and lots of them are off of their daily medications.
R.I.P.P.E.D.: How does it feel to be chosen as February’s MVP?
Chad: It feels great, I mean we don’t teach the class to get recognition, but it’s nice to see that people take notice of our hard work and our students’ hard work!
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What motivates you to get up every day to do R.I.P.P.E.D./RUMBLE?
Chad: Our students are our number one motivator. We do it for them, and it’s always been that way. We truly care for each and every one of them and they keep coming back for more. They trust us, and we don’t want to let them down.
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What would you tell people who are interested in becoming instructors in R.I.P.P.E.D./RUMBLE?
Chad: Take the chance! You never know how things will work out! 7 years later, I have met some amazing people, learned a lot and made lifetime friends.
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What is your favorite aspect of the R.I.P.P.E.D. community?
Chad: I love the support. Everyone is so positive, and their smiles and encouragement are infectious!
