All About Us: Ryan

New GRIT Rockstar Ryan tells us how he first got into fitness, what inspires him, & how he refuels post class!

Meet Ryan

I started lifting weights with my uncle in high school. Since then, fitness has become the foundation for dealing with any situation in life. It’s not just an activity. It’s a lifestyle. I’m stoked to have found uforia. uforia offers an uplifting community that combines my two passions: fitness & music.

Favorite Local Hot Spots?

In Palo Alto: The Counter and BARE Bowls.
In Nob Hill: Nob Hill Spa and Harper & Rye.

What do you do in your spare time?

Hiking, sleeping, yoga, Harry Potter marathons, checking out live music & plays.

Where do you find your uforia?uforia-instructor-ryan

Seeing people delve into their heart and achieve the impossible. I love seeing people find themselves in whatever they’re doing. Finding what they’re passionate about, and pouring themselves into it.

Also, I find my uforia when I’m out in nature: it rejuvenates me.

What are your favorite pre/post workout snacks?

Protein shakes with Orgain Organic Protein Powder, pancakes with peanut butter, & eggs in any form.

Favorite Song At The Moment?

Neon Trees’ “Sleeping with a Friend”, Disclosure’s “BOSS”, and Cash Cash’s “Surrender”.
I’d say my style is an eclectic mix of everything. Any music that inspires.
