Fitness & Weight-Loss Holidays Europe - Mel Richards 

Mel is the founder of Riofrio Holidays / RFH Fitness.  He is a very highly qualified and experienced Personal Trainer, Sports Therapist, Boxercise and Extreme Kettlebell Instructor, a 'British Association of Cycling Coaches' accredited coach and a member of both the Andalucian Cycling Federation and the Andalucian Mountaineering Federation.

Mel has many years of experience of trekking, cycling (both on and off road) and ultra-running - including successful participation in the Yukon Arctic Ultra and the Grand Union Canal Race as well as a whole host of running, hiking, mountain biking and road cycling events in Andalucia and beyond.

Mel established Riofrio Holidays / RFH Fitness in 2004 and, since then, has worked with a variety of trainers and coaches to devise a programme that is often imitated, but never emulated!

Although now not involved in the programme from day-to-day, Mel will normally be your first point of contact when you get in touch with RFH Fitness and is always available to answer any questions you may have.
