Richard from Zwickau: Fitness coach set up his own gym

A chance to build something new:
Out into the world and back home

Richard Görner was born in Zwickau and went to school here. He gained a degree in economics from Chemnitz University of Technology. Professional positions as an IT consultant have taken him to many places: to the United States, Belgium, the Netherlands, Ireland and many different regions of Germany.

In 2013, he decided to return to Zwickau, as his children were growing up. Sport and exercise have always been his passion, so he trained as a CrossFit coach.

He saw opening his own gym in 2018 as an opportunity to build something new in his home city – and a way to find a better balance between work and family life for the long term.
