RICA RODRIGUEZ AND DIVINE MASINSIN
The Dynamic Duo
Athletes, educators, and wonder women Rica and Divine are two of the most sought-after and respected professionals in the fitness industry in the UAE. Each armed with their own individual track record of successes in the Gulf and in the Philippines, they have combined their decades of experience to form their own company this year, Dynamic Duo Inc., which aims to promote fitness, health, and wellness through group classes, personal training, events, certification courses or workshops, and management consultancy.
Despite being at the pinnacle of their careers, Rica and Divine are never the type to rest on their levels. Of what keeps them going after years of continuous triumphs and accolades, Rica says: “We stay on top of our game through constant learning. We try our best to keep updated with the trends in the fitness industry by attending Fitness Conventions and summits. We learn from our students as well, with every course or class we conduct. We have also been very blessed to be surrounded by like-minded people that have been very supportive and encouraging to us throughout all the years we have been in Dubai.”
Divine offers a practical piece of advice to Filipinos who want to pursue a career in fitness: “Choose your leaders and mentors. Apart from being blessed to be at the right place and the right time to meet inspiring leaders, we seek them out. Be daring enough to admit you need help and acknowledge that there is a lot more to be discover out there.”
