Ryan joins our team with extensive athletic training and program design experience. He advances our system through his time spent as a collegiate strength & conditioning coach in three NCAA D1 programs.
As the former University of Florida (Gators) Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach, he worked directly with athletes to develop useful speed, strength and power while correcting movement imbalances and reducing athletic injuries. His teams included: Basketball (Men's + Women's) and Golf (Men's). Most notably, he designed Michael Frazier II's post-injury reconditioning program (Houston Rockets).
He specializes in body composition protocols, lactate threshold training, functional hypertrophy, strength development and GPP training. Ryan’s commitment to skill development helps to guide clients through proper positioning and technique before heading straight to the weights.
Ryan's philosophy on training, whether you're a competitive athlete or just getting started in fitness, is simple: train hard, but recover harder. “Staying diligent on your weekly training is equally as important as adopting a proper recovery routine and sticking to it.” He uses regeneration techniques such as joint decompression, foam rolling and fascial abrasion to accelerate recovery time and decrease injury risk. When asked what his favorite role as a coach is, he said, without hesitation: "to empower and help spark intrinsic motivation within each person to want to do better for no one else but themselves."
At UCLA's Football Strength & Conditioning program, Ryan led FMS™ correctives keeping his players out of dysfunctional patterns and progressing on the field. He led specialized in + off season training that produced strength and stability adaptations, bringing the team closer to reaching its yearly performance goals.
His private sector experience includes training at Allegiate Gym in California and personal training clients. Ryan has experience in program design and implementation, specifically within Accumulation and Intensification phases.
