About Ryan

Hey hey! What is going on? Welcome to Royal Fitness By Ryan Personal Training. My name is Ryan Dobroff. In the gym I enjoy lifting weights and moving around. Outside the gym, I enjoy snowboarding, wakeboarding, long boarding, playing video games, attending concerts, and travelling the world. 

I love being in the gym training people. I get to hangout in a gym all day and help so many clients like you reach their fitness goals, and more!  I found my calling in 2016 when I started personal training part time while I was a full time college student. Through this time I also served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve as a Parachute Rigger. As a parachute rigger, I packed personnel parachutes for Marines to jump out of airplanes. Here, I learned attention to detail and mission accomplishment are of the utmost importance.

Working with me, I will help you build a strong foundation for you to reach your goals, and motivate you. Whether that's losing body fat, increasing strength, becoming more mobile/ flexible, working around an injury/condition, etc. I'm the man that can get the job done right. 


My favorite client story

I have been assisting an elderly gentleman. When he was younger, he was in an accident that resulted in severe injury to his body. His right hip joint healed improperly, and he is now wheelchair bound. He is limited in his range of motion and mobility. During the time in which I have been working, he has developed strength, flexibility, and his mobility is increasing. He is now able to walk with assistance and I am certain that in time, he will continue to develop his strength and mobility.

My favorite exercise

My favorite exercise is barbell back squats. I choose this as my favorite exercise because they involve the whole body to perform the exercise, with the emphasis being on the legs.

Ryan is an exceptional trainer and I know this because I hired him to work with my uncle Bill. My uncle finished with his allotted physical therapy and wanted to continue working with someone to maintain his strength after a fall. I was very impressed with Ryan when I was trying to determine if he was the right fit. He asked several questions making sure that he could safely and effectively train Bill. Then he assessed Bill to see where to begin. They have been working together for several months now and Bill continues to get stronger and healthier. Bill really enjoys Ryan and Ryan seems to intuitively know the right amount of "push" to give him. Ryan is a problem solver, very encouraging, and brings a great deal of compassion to a challenging situation. So, if you are looking for a trainer who will take the time to figure out where you are at, meet you there, and help you become a better version of yourself through encouragement and targeted interventions, look no further.

Ryan is a great motivator. He simplifies things and was able to start with the basics with me. He was very good at attuning to my goals and understanding where I was in my fitness journey and helping me continue to move forward. He is very available to his clients and very personable. You can tell he takes great passion in his work and likes to help them meet their goals and succeed.

Ryan is very positive, friendly, and effective as a trainer. We developed a workout plan together to reach towards my goals. He is also eager to answer questions that I had about nutrition and workout trends. I am feeling great, more energetic, less stressed, and developing the physique that I want. Thank you Ryan!


Ryan has worked with my mother for a few months now and provides a great balance of instruction, support, and accountability that she needs to stay active and moving as she gets older. He's well-versed on her specific needs as someone aging and provides the right type of care she needs. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a great trainer!

I started working with Ryan because I had fallen out of the gym routine and needed someone to help me get back on the horse. Working out with Ryan helped me achieve that; I regained a lot of comfortability with working out and felt more driven to get back to the gym multiple days per week. Ryan and I only worked out one or two days per week, but after a couple months, I had lost some weight and 2% BMI. More importantly, I felt better physically and felt motivated to continue what we had accomplished.
