In June of 2007, Ryan returned to civilian life after 4 years in the United States Marine Corps. His passion for fitness, fostered by the Marines, found a new home in CrossFit. He began wodding daily at Guerrilla Fitness/CrossFit Montclair and entered various competitions. Ryan believes competition is a pivotal part of CrossFit. Competition, aside from being a motivational tool, helps one realize and fix weaknesses and work towards goals. Ryan has attended numerous CrossFit certifications including: Level two Trainer certification, USAW Level 2 Certification, Endurance, Rob Orlando’s Strongman Seminar, and Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength Seminar. He has a solid foundation in CrossFit and is actively pursuing knowledge and new certifications in order to help you meet and exceed your goals.
