Chief Performance Officer and Head Coach

Darryl Cross-RF main

Darryl works EXCLUSIVELY with the legal industry. He is known as the “Trainer to the Bar” as he helps private practice lawyers, corporate counsel and senior law firm administrators who are the best at what they do transfer that success into fitness and physical performance.

For over 30 years, Darryl has spoken to and coached over 10,000 athletes and business executives from over 100 countries on how to enhance performance, and continuously improve results in business, sport and personal fitness.

His one-of-a-kind coaching approach comes from combining his legal business, sports and fitness backgrounds.

Darryl has served on the executive committee as Chief Marketing Officer of an international law firm, earned his MBA with an emphasis on professional services strategy and has a graduate certificate in Law Firm Administration from The George Washington University. He knows how the industry works and the challenges it places on its people. His scientifically proven programs are built with their realities in mind.

He is a certified coach with the International Rugby Board and USA Rugby and serves as a fitness performance consultant for James Madison University and the University of Virginia. He is as a Division III rugby coach for the Virginia Rugby Football Club, which has consistently been ranked in the top teams in the United States.

He is one of less than 100 Master Trainers certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) in the world, which puts him in the top 99.9% percentile of all trainers. He also holds certifications as a Performance Enhancement Specialist, Certified Personal Trainer, Group Personal Training Specialist and Corrective Exercise Specialist.

No fitness training company knows the legal industry and its people better than Rainmaker Fitness. Why does this matter? Because we don’t work with 20-somethings with dozens of hours a week to spend in a gym. We don’t try to convince people about the value and benefits of hard work and determination. We work with seasoned rainmakers who are changing the world and want to also be on top of their physical game to increase the quality of their life.

Great performers know how to compress time as well as increase “activity density” to continuously improve their performance. Showing professionals in the legal industry how to get fitness results that mirror their professional achievements, in less time, is Darryl’s area of expertise.
