“I am on a quest to create super-humans out of mere mortals. You say impossible, I say possible. You say you can’t, I say you will. You only think you can’t because you never have before. As your coach it is my job, my responsibility to make you better than you ever imagined. And I will.”

Ryan grew up in Kansas City, MO in a small river town called Parkville. Ryan spent most of his days either on a skateboard or helping his mom and grandma in the kitchen. Over the years he developed a passion for cooking and decided to pursue a career in culinary arts.
He attended California School of Culinary Arts located in South Pasadena California. Over the years Ryan has worked with some great chefs and a very diverse range of foods and styles of cooking.
About 4 years ago he got involved with functional fitness, which got him interested in the world of nutrition. His food focus today is more on nutrition, health, wellness and fitness that follows the primal lifestyle of eating.

COACH/ Personal Trainer
CrossFit Level 2
Born and raised in the Bronx, Hugo never fails to leave people slack-jawed at his God-granted, hard-earned fitness. He is the epitome of a diehard lover and practitioner of CrossFit. His approach is simple… “Maintain the proper form, add more weight, finish strong and keep challenging yourself. Increase weight with every rep, track your progress and under no circumstance should you give up! Your body can stand almost anything; it’s your mind tat you have to convince.”
Hugo began his journey at the young age of 15, where he self educated himself on body mechanics, fitness and nutrition. He once aspired to become a Navy Seal and developed a passion for physical fitness as he embarked on a journey of studying Muai Thai and then shortly after, pursuing a career in CrossFit.
Hugo has proven himself to be one of the most energetic, highly motivated and humorous coaches Dynamix has encountered. Tell him you can’t and he’ll say, “Stronger doesn’t happen unless you push yourself!”
LET’S GET BUSY!!!
