About Ryan



Here's my back story....

Ninja turtles, it all started with ninja turtles. Ryan first got into fitness in pursuit of learning martial arts at age 12. He was always fascinated by what the human body could do and what the mind could achieve through training. Ryan went on to wrestle and play football for his high school. It was in football that he got introduced to weight training and excelled in power lifting winning strength competitions and helping other students reach their fitness goals. 

Ryan liked training people and started working for his local 24 Hour Fitness after high school as a personal trainer. He wanted to help people change their lives but didn’t know in what capacity yet. Fascinated by what makes people behave the way that they do, he majored in psychology.

Upon graduating from San Diego State University with a degree in psychology, Ryan found that he wanted nothing to do with the traditional path of psychology.

Working as a personal trainer throughout college, he realized his calling was to help people change their lives through fitness.

With a back ground in psychology and fitness training Ryan has a unique ability to take a total person approach towards fitness. He specializes in creating fun, result orientated fitness programs for busy adults.

In creating effective programs for his clients, Ryan found that motivating the body alone was not enough. Programs needed to take into account what motivates a client and what exercise modalities best match the client’s personality style, so that exercise adherence becomes second nature to them.

Ryan continues his education in fitness training and mind body techniques to bring the latest cutting edge programs to his clients. He is an active athlete competing in marathons, triathlons, weight lifting competitions and an ongoing martial artist.
