Today we’d like to introduce you to Ridge Davis.
Ridge, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
At the age of 6 years old, I started both of my journeys as a competitive track athlete (sprinter) and a professional classical flutist: two complete different paths, but both requiring the same discipline, passion and tenacity. My early successes in my music career led me to pursue it full time by attending the New England Conservatory in Boston for my Bachelor’s Degree and The Colburn School Conservatory in Los Angeles for my Master’s Degree. While committing to music, I still trained like an athlete and used fitness as a mental escape from practicing and rehearsing 50+ hours per week. As a result, I took my fitness and physique to a whole new level.
Many of my colleagues took notice so I received my personal training certification and began training several of my colleagues in music.
After countless auditions and becoming runner up for the New World Symphony in Miami, I decided to take a break from auditions and commit to fitness full time and take on freelance classical music gigs in Los Angeles. I began my personal training journey at Equinox Fitness Clubs in Downtown Los Angeles as a Tier 3+ personal trainer which is achieved through high levels of education and client results. After much success from Equinox, I decided to pursue my exclusive personal training business in West Hollywood and break into the fitness industry under my own brand.
Please tell us about Ridgid Fitness.
Trained as a professional classical flutist, I have always been intrigued by the interplay between music and movement. As a perfectionist, I bring an ear and eye towards the precision and rhythm in exercise, guiding my clients with the highest level of dedication and commitment. Having accumulated several thousands of hours as a personal trainer at Equinox and group fitness instructor at THE WALL, RIDGID FITNESS represents a synthesis of my experiences from my careers in fitness and music.
I strongly believe one’s health and fitness is a life-long process, requiring constant growth, mental and physical dedication and development. I created RIDGID Fitness to break down the components of well-being into its individual parts. I educate my clients towards proper nutrition, exercise and life style habits and create a stable foundation for them to achieve and maintain their fitness goals. My training style uses a combination of corrective exercise strategies, athletic strength and conditioning principles, and bodybuilding techniques to create a body with an unmistakable aesthetic that moves with strength, grace and freedom.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
