Ryan is a proud Morgantown native, WVU alumni, and avid CrossFitter.  He began CrossFit in 2011 because he was bored of the repetitious, mundane, and isolated workouts he performed by himself at large 'globo gyms'.  His motivation dwindled and his consistency diminished.  He needed something new, something challenging.  This led him to try out CrossFit.  The initial experience was humbling and he quickly learned that CrossFit workouts are physically demanding and mentally draining.  He also discovered that the challenging workouts developed a new found sense of accomplishment and confidence.  The uplifting community CrossFit provided drove him to pursue avenues for making CrossFit a much bigger part of his life.

In June of 2014, Ryan opened CrossFit Ridgeline along with a great team of coaches and his supportive family (Ashley, Jackson, and Austin).  Helping people achieve their fitness goals and watching Ridgeline grow into an incredible community has been truly rewarding.
