Co-owner and Head Coach

Ryan is the cofounder and a Head Coach at Iron Village S&C. Having grown up playing a range of sports, Ryan found his niche playing competitive soccer and football and eventually went on to graduate from Boston College where he was a member of the varsity football team. Continuing to play football competitively after graduation along with a deepening involvement in the martial arts Uechi Ryu and Aikido, Ryan combined the need for an effective training template and the desire for additional knowledge and sought out on a quest to learn a variety of training modalities and philosophies. Having had an opportunity to train under the tutelage of several highly regarded strength and conditioning coaches including Mike Boyle, Greg Finneranand John Whitesides, Ryan’s real inspiration came through the writings, training methodologies and ethos of Mark Twight, founder of Gym Jones in SLC, Utah. The psychological underpinnings of the Gym Jones training philosophy coupled with a tangible, results-driven training approach serve as the basis for much of the programming and methods that Ryan incorporates into the Iron Village training modalities.
