Ric's Training Style

From the Golden Era of Bodybuilding, Ric Drasin is now offering a Personalized Training & Diet Program designed especially for YOU and your goals in fitness and Bodybuilding.

Ric has been a name in bodybuilding and professional wrestling since the mid 1960's and was Schwarzenegger's workout partner for 4 years along with such greats as Draper, Columbu, Zane, Mentzer, Robbinson, Guiliani, Waller and more.
More On The Program


Ric has also trained such stars as:

    Jeff Goldblum
    Eric Estrada
    Gene Simmons
    Chuck Negron (3 Dog Night) and more...

Undoubtedly, the Golden Era turned out the best bodies ever, and the training and diet back then was like none other today. We had the formula and it worked.


This is NOT a plan just thrown to you at random like some trainers do, and your current workout and diet will be evaluated by Ric personally and then restructured to suit your goals and desires. Ric will be available to you 7 days a week via email and will personally respond to your emails and questions, helping you reach your goals and bust those through those tough plateaus you've been working on.

    Gain Size
    Cut Body Fat and lean out
    Establish your eating habits for best results
    Increase lifts and break plateaus
    Bring up lagging body parts
    Restructure your program every 4 weeks for maximum results. Continual progress is the key and you will receive evaluations weekly by sending your photos and your training and diet logs.

Most personal trainers charge a minimum of $50 to $125 per workout session 3 times a week. This can become very costly and most have no knowledge of 'old school' methods that get results.


Progam Details:

If you sign up today, it's just $200.00 a month, that's just $50 per week payable at the beginning of every 4 week period. This program is geared for a target period of six months for maxium benefit. As they say, Rome wasn't built in a day so stick to the plan and you'll see the results just like we did. Continue on beyond 6 months and receive a discount.

This is a ridiculously great deal considering the knowledge passed down to you from the Golden Era of Bodybuilding, you'll just get it along with better diet and supplements, and minus the over training. Ric is taking on a limited number of clients so secure your position while one of the greats is sharing the secrets with the next generation. No more guessing on your part.

Please do not fill out this form unless you plan on signing up at the listed fee.  Otherwise your information is useless.  This is only for those who want to start the monthly program. NOT FOR REGULAR COROSPONDENCE

Thank you





Hi Ric,

Just a quick mail to say thanks for the YouTube videos, they've been a big help and inspiration to me.
I'm a 41 year old guy from the UK who got his midlife crisis wrong and started working out and lifting (instead of growing a ponytail and buying a motorbike) after a life of being overweight and fairly inactive.
I'm an overly analytical type of dude that researches everything I get my teeth into almost to the point of obsession. This has applied for the past couple of years to my fitness and lifting. Damn! There's so much bullshit and contradictory information out there I found myself not knowing what to try or who to listen to.
The honesty and experience you show in your vids struck a chord with me and I've taken on your advice and found its worked well. After 18 months of messing about with various techniques, routines and diets I'm starting to make great progress.
I'm a big guy at 6ft 4 and have weighed as much as 350lbs in the past. I'm now down to about 270 and gaining muscle. I work 30 hours a week in my day job and have my own business performing as a magician at weekends. I have a 9 year old son and severely disabled wife in a wheelchair but still find time to work out most days and keep to a good diet. I'm saying this not to boast or seek recognition but to highlight that no matter what your circumstances, it's never too late to start and there's always time if you make it.
I do have a quick question though... I find I workout better after eating but due to my circumstances I have to work out very early most days at around 5am. I don't have a problem working out fasted but get a far better workout on a weekend when I go to the gym later in the day, after I've eaten something. Is there anything I can do to help with this? Is it worth eating carbs at nighttime to help or will this hamper my fat loss and not give my muscles the energy and glycogen needed in the morning?
Thanks again, I hope I've not left it too late to look as good as you when I reach your age.

Many thanks,


Andy Nicholls



"I have been a fan of Ric Drasin's for too many years to count! When he asked me to be a guest on his show it was an honor I could not pass up. I have been battling and beating MS in the gym for 8 years now and it doesn't get easier as I get older. But having a platform like Ric's Corner to hear great advice, new training strategies and cutting edge information allows me, even at 56 years old with MS, to keep improving. It's also great to see the old school bodybuilders, the icons of our sport, share their golden age stories with Ric. Whether its knowledge or entertainment you are looking for, Ric's Corner is the place to go."

These photos of me 60 years ago at 20 years of age, taken on the roof top of Bert Goodrich's gym in Pasadena. Bert was a friend. I brought so many members to join his gyms in Pasadena and on Hollywood blvd that he gave me a no charge life time membership to all his gyms.

Now at my age 80 my son recently visited Venice Muscle Beach (MB) and learned of your WEB site. I pointed out to him that my days at MB were at Santa Monica and wanted to thank you for bringing back some of the best memories of my life with your video. I thought back to my times at MB and Barone Michell Leone, the wrestler, Henry Lens, Rick Havlacheck and Malcolm Brenner. Malcolm always was escorted by his mom. Once he dropped into Bert's Pasadena gym without his mom and totally lost. My buddies and I took him home asking his secrets for adding bulk to which he advised, eat bananas and drink half and half milk, obviously it was in the 50's and before steroids.

There was a period time when I got to watch Steve Reeves and Marvin Eder work out together at Bert's Hollywood gym, a real inspiration.

I still work out but look a lot different than the days of the photos sbove. I am very hsppy that my son introduced me to you and your WEB site. I am trying to recall the name of the "dark" skinned guy in the the weight pit photo. If you know it, I would appreciate knowing it as I feel he was one fellows who worked out at Santa Monica during my time.

Again, thanks for bringing back some good memories. As Malcolm Brenner told me, "do reps until you can do no more, then do another 10". My wish for us old guys still "pumping iron" and for you as well! Take care,

George Burkhardt hes a lucky kid cause he can hear all the cool stories about the old golds gym days when u and the crew trained together and hung out, i am so impressed by rics stories that i find myself spending 7 to 8 hrs watching his videos somedays. i really enjoyed the video where he went to the olds golds and showed us where they used to hang out on the beach and also the grassy area where they sun tanned also, u can actually see the emotions in rics eyes as he goes down memory lane visiting these places, thats why i really love rics videos is cause he wears his heart on his sleeve and he keeps everything real and doesnt bullshit us. im so glad i found rics videos cause im the biggest 70,s/arnold era fanatic around, i honestly dont think anyone loves that era more than me, best tim ever back then.

Hi Ric, After digesting many episodes of your corner. I joined #wfn about 6 months ago. Beyond the super-fun physical changes, I really must thank you for literally getting my life back. Before starting HRT on May 4th, I was deeply depressed and quite suicidal. But this turnaround has gotten me back into life. Honestly, I can't thank you enough, for me and for my son. Here's a before and after for ya.


Hi Ric,

Just a short note to say very many thanks for all your excellent articles and YouTube videos which I have enjoyed greatly and have been very helpful to both my training partners and me. Your candid and concise advice is rare and actually works!

Best of luck for the future.

Kind regards, Nigel

I love sitting down at dinner and watching these videos Ric. Keep em coming
Wise words from a wise man! Looking great for 71! I would have thought you were in your 50s!

I'm sitting here listening to you, Ric, and I realized why I respect you and like listening so much. You demonstrate class in that every other word out of your mouth is not an expletive; to me, that demonstrates class and substantial intellect. Thank you for this demonstration of character and all the great advice.
