My name is Richard Walker and I’m a personal trainer in New York City. Starting from a young age, I’ve always had a passion for fitness and maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle.

When I was 13 I received my black belt in karate. In college, I was named running back for my college football team. The time in between was spent competing on fencing, powerlifting, and basketball teams, as well as participating in the occasion spartan race.

Now I consider myself a fitness enthusiast where I’ve luckily been able to combine my passion with my career. Every day I work with clients who have specific goals and are completely dedicated to changing their lifestyle.

What is Born Ready Athletics (BRA)?

BRA is about more than fitness. It’s a mindset. It’s the dedication to your craft, turning your dreams into reality, and controlling your destiny by mastering your emotions. BRA is a brand, a blog, and a lifestyle aiming to help make a better you at your own pace.

I’ve realize that some people will be bigger, faster, stronger, and smarter and you can’t control that. But you can control how hard you work by working on your dedication and grit. We are all born ready, but you have to commit mentally, physically, and spiritually to really see and feel the results you’re aiming for.

My goal for Born Ready Athletics is not just to sell personal training, but to provide hope, spread knowledge, and help you believe in yourself. Fitness is more than the programs and diets; It’s a connection you have with yourself. Your body is the only thing we truly own, so why let it go to waste?  Life is a marathon and you have to be committed to the end, so join me on this life journey through fitness.
