Dr. Rivano has been a lifelong athlete and coach. He was a high school wrestler and competitive powerlifter. He competed in powerlifting for ten years and represented the USA at the Junior World Powerlifting Championships in England. He held the American Bench Press record of 402 LBS at a bodyweight of 196 LBS for nine years for his age and weight class. In 2000, Dr. Rivano started on a new athletic path, Olympic Weightlifting where he remains active and competitive in the sport. He is also a certified USA Weightlifting Club Coach.
Dr. Rivano’s approach to health care is to address the underlying cause of a patient’s condition rather than treating the symptoms only. The body is subject to mechanical laws. The science of physics applies to humans. Even a slight alteration in the body’s precision can result in disorders that overcome natural defenses. His philosophy is to treat not only a specific affliction but to address the whole body through a simple wellness approach that encompasses Eating Well, Moving Well, and Thinking Well!
He remains active in the community by sponsoring the East Hanover Youth Soccer League, the Florham Park Little League, and the Florham Park Youth Recreational Football League. He coaches athletes interested in enhancing their athletic potential with Olympic Weightlifting training protocols.
In his spare time he enjoys training and competing in Olympic Weightlifting, spending time with his family and friends, reading, attending seminars, and of course, vacationing.
