Hi, my name is Dr. Rick McAvoy, and I am a pioneer in the field of Aquatics.

I am an innovator for health. 

 I believe that the power of H2o can change lives.

Your clients will leave the H20 feeling significantly better than when they got in. If more people realized the potential of water, then we would have a health revolution. There would be less injury and illness. Water is the great equalizer – the harder you push the harder it pushes you back. It does not matter what your age or fitness level is. Water does not discriminate.

WHAT do We do?

We teach trainers and health professionals how to use the water’s potential to maximize overall health and performance.

WHAT does this mean for customers / clients?

We will help you incorporate the power of water into your existing treatment and training philosophies to improve client performance and outcomes. If you are stuck in a training rut and are looking for an all-in-one solution, join in the movement. For improved freedom of movement and accelerated results, RMA is your Outside-the-Box Solution.
