Hi, my name is Matt Ryan, BSc. and MSc. Kinesiology, certified personal trainer since 2005, and a life-long athlete with 20-years in the fitness industry.
I can help you reach your fitness goals: whether it is losing weight, gaining muscle, becoming healthy/active, or simply getting comfortable and confident in a fitness environment.
I have extensive experience teaching fitness for:
- weight loss
- strength, muscular and endurance gain
- proactive anti-aging and exercise for ages 50+
- core strength training, stability and fall-prevention
- functional movement and mobility
- athletic and sport-specific training
- injury rehabilitation
- LGBTQ+ teen fitness
My underlying philosophy regarding fitness is to enjoy the process, which leads to sticking with it, which in turn leads to achieving desired results. Hard work is required, but enjoyment is a must, and I strive to make sessions both fun and challenging no matter what the goal. Enjoyment = Adherence = Results.
My interest in health and fitness has been a life-long one. I was the Canadian National Champion for gymnastics and national team member for 7 years. As a supplement for gymnastics, I began structured weight training as a 15-year old and have been in the weight-room 3-5 days per week since. Currently, in addition to personal training, I am persuing a lifelong dream to become a Professional performance artist, specializing in pole fitness.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your personal fitness journey.
Yours in good health,
