Chris Ryan is one of New York City's top personal trainers who recently starred in NBC's STRONG. He is also a world famous fitness model, having graced the cover of Men's Fitness twice and regularly appears in the pages of Men's Health, Men's Fitness, GQ and Cosmopolitan, and regularly works with top brands in fashion and fitness ranging from Ralph Lauren to Cybex. Ryan's father coached him from a young age and helped him achieve his goal of becoming a Division I track and field athlete at the University of Florida. After his sophomore year and in the wake of an injury, Ryan transferred to Michigan State University and rebuilt himself with his own strength and conditioning program. After graduation, Ryan tapped into his entrepreneurial spirit and joined his brother and a friend as owners of several ServPro franchises while continuing to train and compete in triathlons. After he and his partners successfully sold their ServPro franchises at the end of 2008, Ryan followed his true passion for health and fitness and began competing at high levels within the CrossFit world - even qualifying as an individual regional level competitor in 2012. Ryan and his wife, Denise, have a son, Achilles and daughter, Athena.
