“Ronny Camacho has been a huge part of my growing gymnastics career for the past nine years of my life and was there every step of the way. Every single moment, inside and outside of the gym, Ronny has been there training, encouraging, pushing and inspiring me to be the best gymnast and person I can be.During what would have been my first year competing at Level 9, something ‘uneventful’ occurred. I experienced a very rare injury called ‘grip lock’ which occurs when a gymnast’s grips lock to the horizontal bar while the gymnast is still rotating. This causes severe damage to the forearms. At around 6:40 pm on December 14th, 2016, it happened to me and I fractured both ulnas and bent my radius. I arrived at the ER around 7:10 pm and within 10 minutes Ronny was there for me having driven across two cities to support me.
After meeting with the doctors, they said it would be unlikely for me to be back on the gymnastics equipment in the next year. However, I think Ronny begged to differ. With two casts up to my elbows, I spent three days a week training my lower body and back. As soon as the casts came off and I got the ‘ok’ to use my wrists again, we were working that too. Only five months after the injury, I found myself in the gym doing giants – completely proving the doctors wrong!
Now, here I am in 2018 ready to compete stronger than before as a Level 10 gymnast and I owe it all to Ronny. I want to thank him for being an amazing teacher and coach, and consider him as a member of my family. Thank you for doing everything possible to help me through my life and gymnastics!”
The sport of gymnastics is a very challenging sport both mentally and physically. Ronny has devoted his time to understand my goals, dreams, and aspirations, and has been incredibly dedicated to my success and always finding ways to support me. He is an amazing mentor and has a unique insight and tremendous ability to inspire and encourage! He looks at the whole picture, and is a constant reminder of leading by example!
I have gone through some tough years and Ronny has made a profound difference in my life! When I am having one of those days, he is the first person I call. He is ALWAYS available for me! He is so positive and his seemingly “You can do this and never give up” enthusiasm and generous spirit is an invaluable example of the person he is. An athlete’s mental toughness is just as important as the physical! He knows when to nurture and when to give me tough love! He puts everything in perspective for me.
I am so thankful that Ronny is a part of my life. He is family! He is an amazing strength training coach, mentor, and such an amazing force to assist me in reaching my highest potential! I owe all of my success to him. As a result, I am so excited to announce that I am verbally committed to San Jose State University for the fall of 2019. Everything that I have learned from Ronny will be a driving force in the years to come!
Preparation is the essential aspect to have success on any platform. It doesn’t matter what your career path entails whether it is athletics or in life. Those who have goals can make preparations so that something that started as simple dreams and ideas can be an actual reality. I have always wanted to play football professionally. However, before that happens I have to become the best college football player I can possibly be. This is where Camacho has played his pivotal role in reaching my goals. He has made me faster from running various drills either on the field or at the beach on an inclined mountain. He has helped me get stronger with resistance based exercises and drills. He has prepared me to perform optimally on the field bar none. Most importantly, he has helped me with my very own mental preparedness.
One can run drills till they can’t anymore, but if your mind isn’t right then all that is irrelevant. He always harped on keeping my eyes focused on where I want to be, not right where I am at. I can control my outcomes and I just have to work till it hurts to be where I want to be. Having natural talent is important, but nothing surpasses the will and work ethic of someone who wants to be successful bad enough. It is hard to think that way when your head is buried in a trashcan after running hills, but all was done for my betterment. So for all these lessons, physically and mentally, I will always be grateful for Camacho. I am grateful because he is a determined person, an empowering trainer, an aspiring father, and a loyal friend. Thank you for everything you have helped me become.

Ronny has been the best conditioning coach I’ve worked with in my 19 years of gymnastics training. It is easy to see how much he cares for each one of his athlete’s progress and success both in the gym and out. Ronny really gets to know his athletes and what their limits are, the information he uses to craft conditioning sets that will push you right up to those limits. I know, going into every set, that even though it will be challenging, I will be able to finish whatever is asked of me because Ronny knows exactly what I’m capable of and wouldn’t give me a challenge I couldn’t overcome. Ronny taught me to give 110% and I have been able to push my body far beyond what I thought it was capable of. I learned that most of the limits I saw myself bound by were all in my head.
Ronny’s focus, however, reaches far beyond the limits of the gym. He wants his athletes to be successful in all aspects of their lives and uses the lessons we learn as athletes and competitors and turns them into life lessons. Personally, I had a hard time keeping things from getting to my head; one bad turn or one off-color comment about my attempts at new skills would screw up my work out and put me in a bad mood which would ruin the rest of my work out. Ronny explained to me how this wasn’t just something that I needed to work on in the gym, but something that I needed to work on as a general life skill. No matter how talented or skilled I am, if other people can get in my head and discourage me from going out and taking care of business, my skills and talents are wasted. Ronny made a lesson about how I should prepare mentally in the gym and extrapolated it into a life lesson that I will be able to take with me even after I leave gymnastics. There are few people I know that would spot these kinds of teachable moments, and even fewer that would take the time to talk to their athlete, explain the situation and work with them to overcome these kinds of obstacles.
Ronny is an expert in strength training, nutrition, injury prevention, injury rehabilitation and more. I have been lucky enough to have had his help in each of these areas for the past three years. He has helped me grow both physically and mentally and I would not be the person I am today without his help.
There is no one word to describe Ronny so I will start with the first few that come to mind. Loyal, determined, honest and motivated. I have known Ronny most of my life and I have always been impressed with his desire to win, his compassion to help people, and his unrelenting passion for making himself, his family, and the people around him better. I admire Ronny’s determination and dedication to his craft and his life. I have had the opportunity to work with the San Diego Chargers and other professional athletes and trainers and Ronny has the tools and knowledge equal to anyone in the business. I wish my twin daughters that play soccer would have the privilege of training with Ronny because I have full confidence that he would bring out their full potential.For decades Ronny has been encouraging me to do a show. The family joke was that I would do it before I turned 50. Finally I built up the courage to complete at 49. Ronny carefully planned, prepared and guided me to compete in the 2017 Stingray Classic in Hawaii Placing 1st in the Open Division. Ronny is excellent at motivating and pays meticulous attention to detail. Preparing for competition is not easy but Ronny has made our journey a smooth and educational experience. He left no stone unturned and is a master of his craft. I can’t wait for our next journey.
Working with Ronny Camacho and the Physique Inc team was an incredible experience. I decided to work with the Physique Inc team because they were incredibly experience and knowledgeable and I believed that they were the best to work with to help me achieve my goals of competing on stage as a Men’s Physique Competitor. Many of the coaches have competed in bodybuilding competitions before and have worked with numerous athletes for competitions, so I felt confident in their knowledge and experience. Working with Ronny was amazing. Right from the start, I knew that Ronny had a no BS attitude and he was able to tell right off the bat how serious I was about competing and the level of commitment I was willing to give. Ronny fully understood my goals and what I wanted to achieve and was more that happy to help guide me to achieve those goals. After our first couple of consultations, regarding activity level, food preference, and over all goals, Ronny quickly presented me with a thorough workout and meal plan and said if there were any questions or concerns to feel free to ask. The workout plans were great and I definitely noticed improvements in muscle growths. Ronny was very accommodating when I needed to change up the workout due to some joint discomfort so that I could still gain muscle with less risk of injury. Ronny consistently followed up with me with feedback on progress photos and improvements. Ronny also assisted in other aspects of my physique journey including contest prep, posing, and just overall contest knowledge. The only thing I do wish is that Ronny and I could have meet up more frequently and that I could have trained more one on one but due to schedule conflicts and me moving half-way through my training, that made it difficult. But Ronny never lost contact with me regarding progression and any changes to workout and diet plans. Ronny helped me every step of the way. He helped me initially bulk up and build muscle, cut up and get lean for the contest stage, assisted in posing routine practice for the contest, and cheered me on as I walked on stage to compete on stage and show off all the hard work he helped me achieve. Ronny did this all while helping me become more confident in my physique and about myself overall. It was incredible to know that I had someone like Ronny who was committed to me and help me take this physique journey. The knowledge and support that Ronny gave me I feel is invaluable and I can’t thank him enough for assisting me in achieving my physique goals and future goals to come. I look forward to working alongside Ronny and the rest of the Physique Inc team in the future.
Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined all that I accomplished this past year! I woke up one day, it was my 40th birthday and I wasn’t too happy about where I was physically. I did not feel healthy. I searched and searched for ways to lose weight and get my body back in shape. I am SO HAPPY I found my trainer! While it took my own hard work and determination, importantly it also took an amazing trainer like Ronny Camacho and the entire Physique Inc family by my side. Ronny is so smart and experienced. He knows all the ways to ensure losing weight in a healthy way and accomplish the goals I set out to obtain. He helped me on my journey to reach my fitness goal and got me to my first fitness competition. He was in my corner the entire time, guiding me, rooting me on and was the most influential person to set me up for success. I was provided a meal plan, workouts, and had constant contact with him regarding each transition period and phase. Even during my hardest times, he was there to help me, not only physically but emotionally and mentally. With his help I succeeded and I annihilated my goal! I can’t wait to start again this year and continue this journey with Ronny and the entire Physique Inc family!!
