About the Trainers Club

The Black Flag Trainers Club will provide a solution for indecently contracted personal trainers by providing these qualified trainers a fully outfitted training studio for one flat monthly fee.   More often than not, qualified trainers cannot sustain a livable wage as a result of the expenses associated working within a larger commercial gym setting.   These large commercial gyms often take as much as 70-80% of the trainer’s income, grossly underestimated the value and the impact that these personal trainers have on their clients.   We intend to create a structure that will allow trainers to retain a substantial portion of their income while creating a training environment for theses trainers to thrive.

Members of the Black Flag Trainers Club will have 24-hour access to the facility, 365 days per year, giving them the flexibility necessary to schedule their clients as they see fit.   Facilities are outfitted with ADA bathrooms, independent meeting rooms, and the best commercial-grade bodybuilding and functional fitness equipment on the market.


  • Must be a certified personal trainer through an accredited and/or reputable training organization – To be approved by Black Flag Athletics Management (copy of the certification to be held on file).
  • Must have personal trainer personal liability insurance
  • Must be willing indemnify Black Flag Athletics (Rini Training Systems)

About Derek

My goal is to have the most positive impact that I can on the lives of the people I work with, helping them to become the happiest, healthiest version of themselves.
I have been an athlete my entire life stemming back to my youth where I played soccer competitively as well as on a collegiate level at Baker University. After transferring to Texas A&M University and completing my Bachelors degree in Sports Management, I had the distinct honor of working for the Texas Rangers Baseball Team for 10 seasons. I got to work with the team as they brought home their first American League Pennant in 2010! In 2014, our family took the plunge and relocated from Texas to Ohio and where I discovered CrossFit and have been active in the community ever since. I decided to obtain my L1 CrossFit certification, so that I could share my passion for functional fitness with others and help them to achieve their goals. One aspect of CrossFit I enjoy most is the body movement aspect, so in 2018 I completed the CrossFit gymnastics course. In 2019, I completed my USAW L1 Weightlifting certification as I feel that building a strong foundation of weightlifting fundamentals is essential, and I wanted to continue to educate myself so that I can be a resource to the athletes I train.
I believe there is no better feeling than inspiring people to engage in healthier lifestyle choices! Look forward to working with you soon.

About Coco
Being from an athletic and fitness minded family it would seem natural my interest follow. But it was my junior year of high school when my Love for fitness really blossomed. Black Flag opened me up to the next level of fitness and training! It was here, at Black Flag I realized I was born to teach! I began to coach and teach group classes and then I found my way to personal training with younger kids in our Athletic Development program. This experience opened up an entire new world for me. This new level of teaching and connecting with people and athletes has empowered me as a coach! My goal for making meaningful, healthy, trustworthy and grounding relationships through fitness was finally possible! My mission is to learn, grow and thrive with all my clients (athletes). The fitness world truly changed my life, I hope to help all find the healthy peace that I have found through my journey and be the guiding hand to get us, as a team to achieve their goals.
