Chris Ryan from "Strong" is one of the trainers competing in the NBC reality series. He is from New York City. His training credentials include NSCA – CSCS, CPT; CrossFit Level 1, CrossFit Powerlifting, USAW Level 1, and CPR-AED American Red Cross.

Chris Ryan is one of New York City's top personal trainers, helping his discerning clients — a roster of "who's who" in the New York business world — tap into their "inner athletes." He is also a world famous fitness model, having appeared in the pages of Men's Health, Men's Fitness, GQ, and Cosmopolitan, and regularly works with top brands in fashion and fitness. From a young age, Ryan's father coached him and helped him achieve his goal of becoming a Division I track & 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 in 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 young son, Achilles.


Age: ∼36 years old
