ryan cutoutRyan Faer has been working in the field as a personal trainer for the last three years. He graduated from NPTI (National Personal Training Institute) with a degree in personal training and basic nutrition. Ryan holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a focus in sport and fitness from Mt. Ida College. Ryan grew up playing competitive soccer all the way through college and continues to play at an elite level for fun. His areas of expertise cover all areas of fitness. From his personal sports career and experience in the field, he specializes in athletes of all sports. He also specializes in weight loss for both men and women through the use of traditional core lifts combined with new & old training styles. The type of training needed is specific to
each individual but will always include the five essential components of fitness (flexibility, muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardio respiratory fitness and body composition). Ryan’s passion lies specifically in the study of myofascial release and mobility work. This passion has steered him towards the financial district where the client base is perfect for this work. Society has placed most in a position where they sit at a desk, travel, and/or type on a regular basis for work. This tends to rid one’s muscle memory of their posterior chain (backside) and therefore cause pain in areas such as the shoulders, lower back, hips, and/or knees. Myofascial release and mobility work are the necessary first step to succeed in any area of training. From there, the individualized program will provide results whether it is in the area of weight loss, toning, strength & power
training, flexibility, pain reduction, or sport specific goals.
