Rick Steele, MS
From 2007 to 2011, I was an adjunct instructor teaching various courses in fitness and wellness at Northern Virginia Community College and Lord Fairfax Community College. I have been a full-time faculty member in the Physical Education Department at Alexandria since the Summer of 2011. It is a privilege to be part of a college community at NVCC that truly care about the success of our students.
Over the past 9 years, I have been a personal trainer in the NOVA area. I have extensive fitness experience working at various fitness centers. During that time, I have worked with people that have all types of fitness and health goals. My specialty is helping those with various special needs such as weight loss, joint/spine problems, significant health concerns, and kids.
I design my courses to show students the fundamental principles behind fitness and wellness. More importantly, my aim is to give students the tools to apply those principles in a practical way to help them achieve your goals. College can be a very stressful time and one can get lost in the day to day responsibilities and tasks that are demanded of you. Sometimes people forget to take care of themselves when that happens. I hope my courses teach you the importance of taking care of your health and give you the tools to be healthy and fit…now, and in the future.
