Originally from Shediac N.B. , Ryan always had a passion for sports and fitness while growing up. And it was this passion that lead him all the way to the world championships and Olympic qualifying trials for Tae Kwon do , as well as the Canadian Nationals for freestyle wrestling in 2004. After these experiences, Ryan decided to pursue an education in Human Kinetics at the university of Ottawa, and during that time he also began his career as a personal trainer, as well as a professional fighter to pay for his education. Now having lived in Ottawa for almost 15 years, Ryan has worked with hundreds of clients through personal training, and believes firmly that he was put on this earth to help others achieve their best/strongest version of themselves through a healthy lifestyle & Fitness. Having successfully lost over 120lbs after sustaining a serious back injury over 3 years ago, Ryan definitely practices what he preaches and knows that anyone can achieve their fitness goals if they are willing to believe in themselves and work hard for it.
