"I’ve worked with many athletic trainers over the years and Ryan Lauderdale provides the most comprehensive and dynamic workouts I have ever experienced. As a competitive fencer, it is difficult to find trainer that takes the time to develop exercises tailored to relatively unknown sport. During the first workout, Ryan listened as I explained the physical demands of the sport and the areas I wished to improve. As a result, he was able to develop a training regiment that truly excelled my skills to the next level. After twelve sessions, I was faster, stronger, and able to sustain a high degree of intensity for longer periods of time. More importantly, unlike other trainers I have worked with, Ryan combined rehabilitation in his training programs.

Because fencing requires an unnatural position, many athletes develop hip problems and certain physical tendencies. For example, my right hip sat slightly higher and often turned out during physical activity. Ryan created challenging exercises that aligned my hips, preventing possible injury and improving my overall balance and speed. In addition, I often suffered from leg cramps during previous tournaments. During the tournament that followed our training sessions, I remained well conditioned throughout every bout. Training with Ryan not only improved my physical abilities as an athlete, but also offered an element of rehabilitation that helped me achieve noticeable physical gains extremely quickly. Whether one is a competitive athlete or just looking to get back in shape, Ryan Lauderdale’s tailored and unique workouts will most certainly produce results."

​"Six months ago I set out to get in shape for my wedding. I was contacted by Ryan Lauderdale (of Rypen Fitness) and attended my first personal training session. Ryan took the time to understand my past fitness programs and also to learn what I wanted to achieve in the upcoming months and years.

From the beginning, Ryan focused on my needs of building my core and losing the excess fat. Ryan’s approach was friendly and stringent.  He knew the exercises that I needed to master in order to achieve my goals.  With Ryan’s training I am now in the best shape of my adult life and have made fitness a mandatory part of my life. 

Ryan devised a well-balanced exercise program. Results were effective almost immediate. I can thoroughly recommend him if you are serious about weight loss and body toning."

"From as long as I can remember, I've been the girl who was always struggling to lose 10 pounds. I've tried every fad diet, juice cleanse and diet pill ever invented but could never seem to make anything stick. Watching my weight yo-yo up and down has been so exhausting and frustrating.

In January, I decided it was time to get back on track and get ready for the summer. I had put on my usual 10 pounds over the holidays and was determined to lose it and keep it off this time. We also planned a 10 day vacation to the Virgin Islands in May! I began running on my lunch break and started taking classes at my gym but found it hard to stay consistent.

In March with only 2 months to get bikini ready I started training with Ryan Lauderdale. We met 3 days a week for intense weight training sessions. Almost immediately, my body began to change. His workouts pushed me way beyond what I could do on my own and I started seeing amazing results. He also helped me with my diet and gave me a meal plan that was simple and easy to maintain. He taught me that getting in shape isn't just something you do temporarily but a lifestyle.

It was hard waking up to do squats and lunges at 5 am but in the end it was worth it! In just 8 weeks I lost 15 pounds, 12 inches and 9% body fat! I look and feel better than ever and I have Ryan to thank for that. Now that I am at my goal weight, I'm continuing to train with Ryan 1-2 sessions a week in order to stay motivated.

Ryan is so knowledgable when it comes to the physiology of the body and as an athlete himself knows what it is like to be in his clients shoes. He truly cares about each of his clients and is dedicated to their success. When ever there was a time I was feeling frustrated or exhausted, it was his encouragement that kept me motivated."

"When I started working out with Ryan, I weighed almost 220 lbs and had 25% body fat. Worse, I had been working out on my own with no sustained results to show for it. Ryan Developed a comprehensive training program for me that not only kicked my butt on a regular basis, but also corrected imbalances in my body, allowing me to make measurable gains when lifting that added to my motivation. Ryan also made a series of small but significant changes to my diet that were manageable and effective.


The results speak for themselves. Working regularly with Ryan, I lost 40 lbs of pure fat and am down to 7% body fat. I feel more flexible, explosive, and balanced. I look at my old suits hanging in my closet and smile.


Thanks Ryan! Now let's get back to work."
