Coach Rio on Cocktales



On Friday, April 12, Coach Rio de la Cruz joins us in Cocktales.


I have to admit, being the non-runner that I am, prior to this I didn’t know much about Coach Rio except that he’s big in the running world and he wears his hair in an afro. It turns out, his life story is truly inspiring. He came from humble beginnings and grew up running with no shoes. He put himself through university (UP, no less) through a running scholarship. Now he is a successful coach, entrepreneur and brand himself.

At the time of our interview, Rio had just married his dream girl Nicole. This photo was from their pre-nup photoshoot with Pat Dy.


Please watch the wedding proposal! Totally sweet.


It is not so common to hear about sweet success stories from people who are completely self-made. I really admire this guy.

Cocktales is on every Friday at 10pm on Aksyon TV and TV5 International. With replays on Saturdays and Sundays.
