About Richard

Richard Insley is a Highly Regarded Fitness Professional and Personal Trainer.

Richard became a journeyman heavy duty diesel technician after leaving school, working in the industry for 25 + years. During this time, the industry took its toll on his body and it left him suffering from severe, debilitating lower back pain from about his mid 20’s and on for many years after. With regular visits to the osteopath and chiropractor, the advice was always to strengthen the core and work smarter and of course, he kept ignoring the advice in the hope that it would somehow miraculously go away. Then in his early 30's Richard saw his weight increase and the pain and discomfort exaggerate.

Deciding to do something about this Richard gained entry to the 1998 London Marathon, and joining a local gym and this helped Richard take a serious interest in his own health and fitness. After several months his health, strength, and weight all improved and he saw the debilitating back pain reduced significantly and then he moved on from just running and participated in many triathlons richard insleyand has completed the Alcatraz Triathlon in 2008, swimming across the part of San Francisco Bay that they said the prisoners would never navigate alive.

On moving to Canada, as his health improved and interest in the fitness industry grew even more, and the natural progression was to certify as a Personal Trainer, and Richard eventually switched career paths to pursue a full-time business in training, fitness, and nutrition setting up his company RPE Fitness & Training Inc. in 2006.
Since then he has also certified as a Healthy Eating and Weight Loss Coach and as an Aging Adult Fitness specialist working with older adults and the senior's population; helping them to regain health and develop strength, heart health, mobility and improve quality of life.
