Ryan Eckert, MS, CSCS
Founder/Owner & Head Coach
My educational background is in exercise science and nutrition with a focus on strength and conditioning. I chose to study exercise science as I am passionate about the human body as it relates to health, wellness, and human performance. Strength and conditioning is a sub-field within the realm of exercise science, and it involves preparing humans physically and psychologically for athletic performance. I love the process of working with individuals and progressing them towards higher athletic performance in the pursuit of their fitness and performance goals. I grew up playing baseball and continued with the sport up through my freshman year of college while playing for the Arizona State club baseball team. A combination of changing priorities in college and the realization that baseball was not the sport I was meant to dedicate my time and energy towards led to the end of my baseball career. The following few years after I stopped playing baseball were tough as I felt like I had a massive void in my life. In 2014, I began running and cycling, and this eventually led me to my first triathlon in 2015. I have been a dedicated endurance athlete ever since, having competed in road running races ranging from 5Ks to marathons, trail running races, duathlons, and triathlons ranging from sprint-distance races to ironman-distance events. I have been on the podium in Ironman 70.3 events, was overall winner of the 2018 and 2019 Bartlett Lake Sprint-Distance Triathlons as well as the 2019 Deuces Wild Sprint-Distance Triathlon, the overall winner of the Aravaipa Hypnosis 6K Night Run, and have qualified for the Boston Marathon with a marathon PR of 2:58:01. A few of my long-term personal goals are to win a major endurance event as an amateur and qualify for my professional/elite license.
