About Michael Ryan

Hey guys, I'm an easy going regular type dude. I keep the session moving and we get alot of work done. Being a happy person I like to spend my time around like minded people who love to work hard and put their maximum effort in. The difference between achieving your goals and not is the effort you put into them. It doesn't matter if its first thing in the morning or at the end of the day all that matters is how you do what you do.  How hard are you going to work at it?

My favorite client story

One of my clients developed a love of fitness and got into the best shape of her life after a couple of months working with me. All the previous working out she did she hated but I was able to find the exercises she liked and develop a style of training that she loved. She know looks forward to every training session.

My favorite exercise

Squats and Kettle Bell swings are pretty good. Both of these movements build a tremendous amount of strength and are unparalleled in the physical changes they make when you become strong with them.

My favorite quote

Today is a good day to have a good day.

It's just a good philosophy to have.

My training philosophy

Training is the most effective when its fun! It's the most important part of any plan. Being in your head about all the numbers can only keep you motivated for so long. We will track the numbers so we can see progress but the numbers don't matter when you look, feel, and live wonderfully. Don't worry about how much you're lifting or how many macronutrients are in your meal plan. Get in the gym, enjoy the workout and then go enjoy the rest of your day.

My training experience

I started lifting weights in high school and have trained with high level athletes, Marines, competitive powerlifters, and professional bodybuilders training for distance, performance, aesthetics, everyday life, and fun. Around age 10 I started playing competitive sports like Soccer, Football, Ice Hockey, Track and Field. I played Ice Hockey at the Junior level and was the training partner of a state champion decathlete and All-American distance runner in High School. After High School I played Semi-Pro football for 5 years, in every skill position starting with Quarterback and through to Linebacker. Throughout these events physical training has made all the difference in my performance. We will use all of these experiences to build a plan to keep you motivated and excited to get in the gym. This is going to be fun!

I've been training with Michael Ryan on and off for the past 3 years and he is the best trainer I've ever had. His workouts are tough and we're always doing new exercises. Every session is fun and doesn't feel like working out. He knows when to crack the whip and when to keep it light which keeps me motivated. He brings enthusiasm to the sessions no matter how early or late they are. I'm always looking forward to our sessions. He will get you the results you want to see. Highly recommended.

We are so happy with our awesome trainer! My best friend Sarah and I have worked out together for years, we needed a good kick in the butt to get us motivated again and we found Michael – we love the discount for training together – it works perfect for us 3 times a week, we’re back in great shape and loving our workout routine. Our workouts are always fun and we can’t wait to get up super early and get our day going – thank you for helping us reach our goals and keeping us there! Your amazing :) thank you Katherine & Sara!

I have trained with Michael 4-5 times amonth for the past 3+ years Great workouts and thanks to him I’m in tip top shape and love it. He keeps me right where I need to be and I don’t have to give my workouts a second thought when I’m in NY I highly recommend Michael, if your busy and want to get to it, with out planning it all he is your go to guy. Michael is always motivating and pleasure to work with this entire time.

We are so excited, we wanted to get in shape for the holidays and not wait until the New Year because we always say that and never do it. We found Michael 6 weeks ago, he’s been great, we never had a personal trainer before but this was the best idea, he’s kept us really accountable, helped with our food choices and walked us through all our exercises, its great that our workouts are planned out when we meet. we weren’t really workout people before, but we are loving it. So excited to get into good shape and not keep putting it off. Thank you for being such a motivator, you’ve really made our journey fun and we are loving it! SO SO Glad we stopped putting it off BIG thank you. Very Highly Recommended!
