Ryan McGowan became a certified personal trainer in 2007. He started on a part time basis while working full time as a project manager in the commercial construction industry, but decided to pursue his passion of training full time in 2010.
His background of college football and ironman triathlons shaped a diverse and versatile training style. However, after dealing with injuries related to overuse and overtraining, Ryan discovered a way to train only 1-2 hours per week and became fitter and healthier than ever! His company, Laid-back Fitness, was founded based on these ideals where their focus is developing efficiency of movement using fun and unique equipment.
His facility is located in Warwick and is a combination of a fitness center and a playground. While helping clients become healthier and improving their body composition, Ryan also encourages them to participate in adventure races to put their skills and fitness levels to the test. Having a good body is nice, but he believes we should use it in addition to just showing it off!
