Richard and Jakob Ruiz are TRC’s Members on Fire for March

Richard Ruiz and his son, Jakob Ruiz, are the Redwood Club’s Members on Fire for this month. Richard has been a member of the Redwood Club for a while now. In fact, Richard has been a member for precisely 30 years! When we asked Richard about what keeps him coming back to the Redwood Club, he said that he loves the gym for the people and the top-notch amenities such as the steam room and adults-only swimming pool. When not relaxing in the steam room or doing laps in the pool Richard, who is boxing a  coach, can be found power lifting.

Richard is an excellent fitness member because of his ability to brighten everyone’s day with his upbeat personality. He is also always willing to lend a helping hand or make a new fitness club member feel welcome.

Richard’s son Jakob practically grew up in the gym! When asked about what he likes about the Redwood Club, Jakob explained that he thoroughly enjoys the community atmosphere. Jakob even went as far as to say that, “the Redwood Club turned into my home” due to all of the time he spends at the health club.

When working out at the Redwood Club, Jakob can be found using free weights or boxing at the gym. Richard enjoys the fact that he can work out with his son because he said that his son helps keep him young. He also explained that everything he teaches his son, his son can do better than him. When referring to Jakob, the proud dad even stated that “He’s a better coach than me,” which is the highest of compliments!
