Raphael Ruiz

Raphael Ruiz, CSCS

Raphael Ruiz was raised in Texas where his family still resides.  He played football and ran track in H.S. and college.  It was there where he began his career with the initial development of the concepts and forward thinking principles for a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to training; this program was titled Fitnecessity SP.  That was the precursor to the One Four Four One Training Systems.  Raphael relocated to Tampa in 1998 and began work as a sports performance specialist at Harbor Island Athletic Club.  It was during this time that he branched out and worked with the S&C staffs of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays Minor League Program as well as the Director of Sports Performance at the Clearwater Tennis Academy.  Shortly thereafter, Raphael became the Director of S&C for the University of Tampa, which he has served since 1998.  During that time, he also was as the Director of Sports Performance for the MLS Tampa Bay Mutiny.  In January 2005, the Sports Performance Clinic that Raphael developed was added as a division of the Musculoskeletal Institute [Established by Florida Orthopedic Institute].  Raphael is driven to develop training systems that are centered on the practical application of highly effective, scientifically based, orthopaedically backed and performance driven.
