Celebrity Personal Trainer - Kevin Richardson, Founder Naturally Intense High Intensity Training

“The most sought out and respected personal trainer in ALL of New York City”

- CBS On the Couch

Celebrity personal trainer Kevin Richardson is the creator of Naturally Intense High Intensity Training™ and the founder of the award winning, Naturally Intense™ Personal Training Services. With a personal training career that has spanned nearly a quarter of a century, Kevin has helped hundreds of clients- from regular folks to celebrities & CEO’s get better results in less time with his signature 10 minute high intensity workouts.

He has been called one of the best personal trainers in New York City and he has been featured on CBS on the Couch, Fox 5 Good Day New York, the CBS Morning News and in the Wall Street Journal. Kevin is also internationally recognized as one of the world’s leading authorities on high intensity training, and a soon-to-be-published dance photographer who has worked with dancers for years getting them into performance level shape.

A native of Trinidad and Tobago and the third generation of natural bodybuilders in his family, training has always been in Kevin’s blood. He started training in natural bodybuilding at the age of 14- a branch of the sport that rejects the use of performance enhancing drugs of any kind and under the tutelage of some of the best coaches in the country, he started as an apprentice trainer in 1991.

Frustrated by his initial lack of progress, through a painstaking process of trial and error, Kevin developed a system of short, high-intensity workouts that helped transform him from a skinny, 125-pound teenager into a 210-pound natural bodybuilding champion!

Celebrity personal trainer NYC- Kevin Richardson- Trainer of the Trainers

Inspired by his own success, Kevin spent the first 10 years of his personal training career applying and refining the principles that helped him develop a world class physique with his own personal training clients. A stalwart believer in the scientific method, Kevin’s goal was never to prove the effectiveness of ten minute high intensity workouts, but rather to disprove them. That it worked for him and his first set of clients was not enough- he wanted to ensure that his progress was not due to some unique genetic factor but rather something that could be reproduced consistently with a wide variety of individuals with varying levels of fitness. What he found over the years, (much to his surprise),was that his system of training was as effective for those interested in losing weight and increasing endurance as it was for those focused on strength training, building muscle and developing a world class physique!

Affectionately known as ‘The Trainer of the Trainer’, Kevin’s lifelong dedication to the mastery of personal training is undeniable. His personal training service is a three time winner of the Best of Manhattan Awards for Personal Training in 2012, 2013 and 2014 and is one of the best reviewed personal training services in New York City.

With a diverse clientele ranging from everyday people simply seeking to lose weight and get into better shape without spending hours at the gym, to actors, politicians, executives, athletes, fitness models, natural physique competitors and celebrities.

As a rule, Kevin does not mention the names of any celebrity he has trained as it is his belief that a trainer’s work should speak for itself and that maintaining client confidentiality is an important part of what it means to be a true professional. An attribute many of his clients appreciate! That said, some of Kevin’s clients have traveled regularly from as far away as London and Singapore to train with him while others have commuted every week from as far away as Boston and Charlotte just to train with him for ten minutes three times a week!
