Richard made his name training actors to change their bodies to suit their forthcoming roles and has achieved outstanding results over the years. This has led to him being able to define and redefine his methods by which these results have been gained. This module uses these methods and makes them available for all. The Beach Retreat duplicates the type of environment he used on his film work where he controlled both the food intake of the actor using his ABACUS SYSTEM and the appropriate training regime for what was required. This means he can get quick results for his clients.

The young actor shown above took 25 days to achieve the changes shown above. Additionally, because Richard tutored this client in his methods, on his departure he was able to continue the programme for even further gains. Some people don’t have the five weeks the young actor had, but training periods can be broken down into smaller more manageable segments if necessary with some work being undertaken by the client at home using the same methods, till they return for another stay. Much depends on what your body is like at the beginning and the distance you need to travel to get where you are going.

Whatever that distance is, Richard will guarantee he will get you there as quick as it is possible but in a safe and progressive manner. All clients will receive a bio mechanical and physiological assessment prior to starting the training.
