Mini Bio (1)

Reinhardt Kettlebell System (RKS) Co-Creator and Spokesperson Doug Reinhardt is an accomplished professional athlete and entrepreneur who is passionate about helping others stay healthy and fit, in a timely and effective manner. Doug and Co-Creator and Certified Kettlebell Instructor Owen Evans have created a new full-body workout that increases one's strength, endurance, flexibility and cardiovascular condition, all while simultaneously melting away unwanted body fat.

Born from necessity, the RKS workout was developed when Doug was recovering from an injury to his knee and had limited time to exercise due to his busy schedule as a cast member on the MTV reality series, "The Hills". Doug began training privately with Owen using kettlebells and quickly realized that although he had been exposed to some of the best athletic trainers in the world when he was a professional baseball player, kettlebell workouts were the most effective at increasing his overall fitness and helping him achieve his optimal physique. Doug was so impressed by his own results that he decided to collaborate with Owen to create a quick, effective workout that everyone could use. Since then, Doug has used RKS as his exclusive workout to train for his Mount Kilimanjaro climb in 2010 and to win the "Fight for Humanity" charity boxing event in New York, raising more than $1 million for the cause.

Doug's childhood planted the seed for this current career in fitness and athletics. He began playing organized baseball at the age of four, by the time he reached high school his passion, matched with his diligence and ability, gained the attention of both college and professional scouts. Ultimately, he turned down a baseball scholarship with University of Southern California to sign with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as their eighth pick of the 2004 MLB June Draft. During his three years of playing professional baseball, Doug had the misfortune of suffering multiple knee injuries, often requiring surgery. Doug decided to use his injuries as an opportunity to re-focus on his academic career by enrolling at Pepperdine University. At the same time, he continued to pursue his professional baseball career as well, signing with the Baltimore Orioles for the 2007 Season.

In 2005, Doug launched two new technology companies: Fugen Mobile, LLC, a leading North American company that specializes in providing global mobile messaging services and applications for consumer and enterprise markets, and Fun Facter, a company that licenses, creates, publishes and distributes across the U.S. a broad range of premium mobile content. Doug gained experience in multi-family real estate in 2008-2010 working with Entrepreneurial Properties Corporation.

Doug is committed to serving the community and sits on the Board of Directors of the Eric Trump Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the lives of children battling life-threatening or debilitating medical conditions. The RKS co-creator currently resides in Los Angeles. In his spare time he enjoys being active by skiing, golfing and mountain biking.
