His is to share his life experiences and those he gained pioneering the fitness industry in china to motivate athletes, coaches, corporate executives and everyday people to reach their full potential. He has a message he calls POWERFUL HUMAN - it is a universal set of ideas aimed at self actualization that he articulates through life -changing presentations and workshops.It is Ruben's recipe for life and dreams, and one that has literally brought him to the top of the world and back.

Ruben's success climbing the seven Summits, the highest mountain on each of the world's seven continents, culminated in 2016 with an eighth and final climb, the almighty K2.

He then went on to build HUMAN IN MOTION, the nation's NO.1 Functional Training Center; co-founded IHP Asia, the leading source of functional training education in China; and became the first fitness professional to coach a Chinese MMA fighter (Zhang Weili) to becoming a UFC World Champion.
