Ryan truly cares about his clients and makes an effort to understand their individual needs. Not only does he provide valuable assistance with your workout, but is also a great guy to talk with. I didn’t have as much time to spend at the gym as I would have liked, but Ryan was able to show me an effective routine that required only two workouts each week. I gained strength and endurance with each visit and improved through Ryan’s guidance. I highly recommend Ryan as a personal trainer and am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him.

I have been Ryan’s client for a number of years and I would definitely recommend Ryan to anyone who is looking to improve their fitness level. Before training with Ryan, I would routinely weight-train using one of the many unfounded adages about lifting, such as doing 3-5 sets of an exercise and aiming for 8-10 repetitions per set. It did not take long for me to reach a plateau. Then I started training with Ryan. One of the things that separates Ryan from other personal trainers is his knowledge about personal training methods. Ryan employs a training method called High Intensity Training, which involves working intensely for a short period of time on compound muscle groups. By using this time-effective method, I was able to break through my plateau and continue to have gains all while reducing the length of my workouts. In addition to his knowledge about training, Ryan is also a great motivator and has helped me get the most out of my workouts. If you are looking for a personal trainer that will help you reach your fitness goals, while making your workouts enjoyable and productive, I would definitely recommend Ryan!

Ryan's workout is as simple as it is effective. Instead of having lots of complicated exercises to remember, Ryan gave me four simple exercises: push, pull, squat, sprint. Even though I had never done free-weight exercises like bench-press or squat, right away I was doing things I never thought I would be able to do. Because all I had to remember were four tasks, I didn't feel confused or bogged down by workout hype. Instead, it was easy to get motivated & start feeling stronger each day.

I first contacted Ryan because I needed some help building an efficient strength training program. I like to race in triathlons, and the strength training has helped immensely. Fewer injuries, improved times, and no more pain. Ryan's methods are excellent, and only seem unorthodox because he refutes all the "bro-science" methods that are so pervasive in the strength training community. Ryan focuses on scientifically proven techniques and routines, and talking to him for even 5 minutes shows that he is well studied and truly enjoys what he does. Training sessions with Ryan are equally educational as they are productive, and he has helped me avoid bad habits and maintain proper form. His excitement with strength training and conditioning is a great motivator, and I would recommend Ryan to anyone. He does not push one cookie cutter program, but rather tailors his program to best suit individual needs.

In college, I decided to challenge myself by training with Ryan, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. His drive and motivation is truly inspirational and my time training with him took my strength and physical fitness to a level I had never dreamed I would be able to attain. I use the methods learned from him to this day in all my exercises. The proper form, motivation, and intensity that he bestows upon those he trains form a very solid foundation that will stay with you for years to come. He continues to be a close friend and a trusted source of fitness knowledge and motivation to succeed in all my goals both inside and outside of the gym.

3:12pm Aug 8 I first met Ryan almost two years ago at a local health club. On my first day, I worked with him for an hour during which time he assessed by physical status and goals. He efficiently evaluated my past medical history and limitations imposed by a hip implant. Gradually, over several weeks he increased the variety of exercises as well as the weights and repetitions. In a matter of a few short months, he had me back in reasonable shape and feeling much better mentally and physically. I would recommend Ryan to anyone of any age who is serious about reaching their full potential over a reasonable period of time. - David W. Wilder, M.D., M.B.A

Working with Ryan is great! He is extremely knowledge and was able to cater the workout to my needs. He tailored the exercises to make sure I got a tough workout, but modified the moves based on my pain points. It was clear he had done his research and is educated in physical fitness techniques. He works out of a nice studio-type place and has a lot of unique exercises and techniques. Some trainers have the same program for everyone, but Ryan worked with me to decide on the best options. The best part was when he showed me some stretches that helped heal some stubborn muscle pains. Overall, it was a fun experience and I'll definitely go back!

Ryan and I worked together for about 6 months. We discussed some of the fitness goals that I had. Ryan tailored a program specifically to my fitness level and goals. Thanks to his motivation and program I lost 15 pounds, was able to complete 10 full push-ups and run 5 miles! All the goals that we established. Ryan is very knowledgable, motivating and personable. He is able to adapt his training techniques to your needs and personality. I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone of any fitness level!
