We had the opportunity to interview Ryan and learn more about his fitness journey, his motivations, and the lessons known.

How has your fitness journey been?
My fitness journey has been amazing. I have learned so much about myself. Looking back at the last 3-4 years, I can see that I’ve made many improvements. Not only have I improved my physical health, but also my mental wellbeing. I have learned to be more disciplined, and practice delayed gratification.

Why did you begin training?
My fitness journey began about 3-4 years after my divorce/separation from my ex. The emotional impact was huge, and I struggled mentally. This experience was one of the most positive things that happened to me. It led me to the path I am on today. By prioritizing my health and wellbeing with yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises, and by working out, I was able to heal and overcome the illness.

What’s your personal training philosophy?
It all comes down to me being consistent and having a little discipline. I don’t aim to be the strongest or the biggest; it’s a lifestyle for me.

What advice would you give to your younger self when you started your fitness journey?
What do you really want? Although others may have suggestions, like personal trainers or people, we need to discover what we really want. All we need is within us. We have to recognize it and act. It’s important to trust the process because it is a marathon and not a sprint.

“Nothing happens in a day, so enjoy, love and respect the journey. 

What or who inspires you?
Sincerely, I’m the only person who inspires me. It’s also important to learn from the experiences of others. I always say that we can learn so much just by sharing each other’s life experiences/journeys.

Which personal attribute is most responsible for your success?
I accept responsibility for my actions, live according to my values, and embrace my true self.
