Ryan has always been athletic and has always had a tough relationship with food. Throughout his life, these two truths have balanced each other, but as an adult, Ryan hit a point where he wasn’t feeling good in his body and wasn’t active anymore. In 2015, Ryan joined 50/50 as a client. Over the course of a year he got into the best shape of his adult life and found himself really invested in the community at 50/50. After meeting a series of health and fitness goals, Ryan got certified as spin instructor. For the first time in Ryan’s life, he actually felt some hope that he could form a positive relationship to exercise, food, and his body…and then Ryan got pregnant in the fall of 2016. That year was rough and after his baby was born in the spring Ryan basically found himself back at square one. Ryan is now back on the bike as a proud parent of an incredible little person, and is learning first hand about how challenging it can be to prioritize health and fitness with a young family. Food and fitness journeys are long and hard, and it’s important to Ryan that folks at 50/50 know he’s right there with them.
As an instructor, Ryan cares that his classes are accessible to all bodies and identities. He knows not everyone feels comfortable in a spin studio, but he believes people at all sizes and levels of fitness can be strong, can motivate, and can inspire. Ryan loves designing creative, butt-kicking workouts set to energizing, throwback playlists. He loves a heavy hill or a killer sprint. It is Ryan’s goal to lead intense, accessible rides that make you sweat, make you smile, and make you feel like all of your identities can have a home at 50/50.
