Ryan Wallace

Head Coach / Co-Owner

Fortitude Since: 

February 2019 

How did you find out about functional training:

“I was already following the path of “functional training” and didn’t really believe in resting long between sets so a friend introduced me to CrossFit saying “this looks like it would suit you”, my first WOD was the “300” workout and about 30min later I was sold.. I’ve been involved in the Fitness Industry for 8 years and already 6 years ago I was asked to educate Personal Trainers and Fitness Instructors very early so when I eventually got involved as the Head Coach at Fortitude it was pretty much a life coming to a full circle again.

What is your favourite thing about coaching :

The constant pursuit of improvement and the increase in human capacity that I see around me on a daily basis. May it be a competitive athlete snatching a small house or a beginner getting their first pull up, it’s all about the joy I see in our members improving their lives!”

What would be the goal for your coaching career:

To create a platform from which other coaches can stand on to reach 100’s and 100’s of people in the pursuit of saving the world, one human being at the time.
