About Ryan

I graduated from the University of Tennessee at Martin in 2018 with a degree in Exercise Science. I played 3rd base for the Skyhawks for 2 years and was the leading hitter my Junior year and was voted team captain by the team for my Senior year. After finishing my baseball career, I needed something to fill the competitive void in my life. CrossFit was the perfect fit. Being able to come into the gym every day and strive to make myself better mentally and physically is one of the best parts of my day.

Turning Point

I was a pretty weak kid coming out of high school and an average baseball player at best with some potential. My experience at Jackson State Community College was a humbling and a huge blessing. My roommate lived in the weight room and I started joining him as much as I could and I made some big gains in the weight room and on the playing field. Becoming a stronger athlete made me a much better one and I really want to give people the opportunity to become the best version of themselves.

Passion & Motivation

Coaching gives me the opportunity to help someone change their life for the better. Watching people set goals and knock them out is an awesome experience not only for that person, but for myself also. The community at Wilco is one of the best teams I have ever been a part of.
