About Ryan

I’m a certified personal trainer and nutrition coach based out of San Diego, CA. My goal is to discover the best path forward for you to achieve your goals as quickly and efficiently as possible. From there, I design a custom training program based on your personal wants and needs. I also establish flexible nutrition strategies so that food is not only utilized, but enjoyed. Once the plan is put in motion, I will help you stay accountable every step of the way.

I received my personal training certification from the National Counsel on Strength and Fitness (NCSF) and my nutrition certification from Precision Nutrition. My other certifications include Kettlebell Athletics (Level 1 & 2), Pain-Free Performance Specialist (PPSC), Pre & Post Natal Fitness, Animal Flow Level 1, and Tier 3+ through Equinox’s EFTI. I’m CPR/AED/Adult First Aid certified as well.

I was born and raised in Virginia Beach, VA. Growing up, I enjoyed playing baseball, skateboarding, and surfing what little waves Virginia had to offer. I was also an avid singer which eventually led me to dancing and performing. After attending the University of Miami’s School of Theater Arts, I moved to New York City to pursue a career in acting. I had a very successful eight years working with various companies including Disney Cruise Lines, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, and the national tour of Beauty and the Beast where I played Lumière.

After achieving everything I wanted to in the theater world, I shifted my focus. I knew I wanted to do something that would help people, so I decided to pursue a career in wellness. I got my personal training certification and was hired by the prestigious Equinox on Wall Street. After spending over two years there, COVID decided to change my trajectory. Everything shut down, so I shifted my business online. I learned I could take my business anywhere, so I decided to leave New York and head to San Diego, California. I knew I had always wanted to end up here, so I made the move in September 2020 and began working at Equinox La Costa in Carlsbad.

I’m now the owner of Ryan Phillips Training and Wellness. I’m located at Santé Wellness and Personal Training in Del Mar, California. It is my mission to take the knowledge I’ve learned from my previous career and current one to help everyone I possibly can achieve their wants and needs. Whether that’s gaining muscle, losing fat, fitting into those old jeans, doing your first pull-up, or injury prevention, I’m here to help you.
