Growing up in southeast Missouri, Ryan spent most of his days playing in the woods, swimming in creeks, capturing wildlife, and dreaming of adventure. His asthma kept him from playing a lot of sports as a kid, but it didn’t stop him from achieving the ranks of both Eagle Scout and a Black Belt in Taekwondo by the age of 16.
After a short stint in the US Navy, he went back to school for Exercise Science and then moved to the beautiful state of Colorado (still dreaming of adventure).
He currently runs Denver’s one and only gym designed for adventure athletes (Axistence: Training For A Life of Adventure). He’s also the founder of “The Adventurous Life LLC”, a customized online program designed for adventure-minded entrepreneurs.
Ryan’s philosophy on fitness (and life in general) is that everything works, nothing works forever, and there’s always room to improve. In his spare time, you may find him hiking, paddleboarding, climbing, snowshoeing, skiing, or just about any adventure that Colorado has to offer.
