About Us

Rick Berman, ACE-certified Personal Trainer, founder and owner of Studio 2020 Fitness, is the perfect coach for his fitness clients with over 30 years of consulting experience. His strengths are educating his clients, helping to clearly define their goals, managing expectations and motivating them to achieve their short- and long-term goals.

Rick enjoys a life-long passion for fitness going back to participating in competitive gymnastics in school. Rick is equally passionate about helping his clients achieve their deeply personal fitness and lifestyle goals. Since 2011, he has been training with some of the best coaches across the United States in the 2020 fitness protocol (high-intensity, super-slow weight training). Based on the powerful results in his own life and to fulfill a dream, Rick retired from financial services and avidly pursued bringing the 2020 protocol to others seeking to improve their total health and wellness. Studio 2020 Fitness is the manifestation of that drive to serve others.

Rick enjoys weight training, hiking and biking as part of his active lifestyle. He resides in Albany with his wife Beth and their dog Coco.
