Our founder is a former athlete and endurance junky turned Primal. In March 2009, he stumbled across an article that rocked his world. After reading (and re-reading) this convincing piece, he reduced his training significantly, altered his eating style, and became healthier and fitter than ever! Inspired by this way of living, combined with a growing disenchantment with the commercial construction industry, Ryan walked away from his career to pursue his passion full time in 2010! His engineering brain still gets stimulation through analyzing mechanics of human movement, designing practical training regimens, and building fun and new “equipment” to play on!

When it comes to training, Ryan is a minimalist! He prides himself on creating efficient programs for his clients (and teammates) so they can participate in events of any distance with the least amount of time and mileage investment. He is a Level 2 MovNat Certified Trainer, Level 1 Kettlebell Athletics Instructor, Level 1 Animal Flow Instructor, and won Providence Journal’s Readers’ Choice Award for Best Personal Trainer in 2017!

As far as helping his clients become healthier and improve their body composition, Ryan shares with them the Weston Price and the Primal Blueprint guidelines for nutrition. He also encourages his clients to participate in events to put their skills and fitness levels to the test.
