Helping people feel and be healthier, move better and get stronger has been my singular goal throughout my career. 

As a fitness entrepreneur with over a decade’s worth of experience, I founded RJ Kettlebell as a way to reach out and help more people become stronger and healthier no matter where they are in their journey. Through education, accountability, and expertise, RJ Kettlebell focuses on creating and sustaining positive lifestyle behaviors that ultimately result in healthier minds and bodies.

As the son of two former educators, I'm a lifelong learner and study the best minds and organizations in the health and fitness industry. I consider myself fortunate to have found my passion as a level 2 Russian Kettlebell Certified Instructor (RKC II). I've had the opportunity to work with people throughout the country either assisting with their certifications or training them online.

My expertise in designing safe and effective workouts, kettlebell training, and nutrition coaching helps people take their health and fitness to the next level. My programs (online & in-person) are designed to work with each individual client based on where they are and where they want to go. 

If you are ready to commit to and invest in your health, are ready for change, and you know you need guidance, give me a call or send a message (

10/10 Terrific Trainer!
By Emmy Scandling / Silver Spring, USA

I started working with Ryan to help alleviate some chronic neck and back pain as well as to help keep me accountable to workouts. In just a few short months, Ryan's workouts have helped alleviate my pain and stiffness to the point where I am more active and almost pain free. He's terrifically positive, knowledgable and patient. He also works with me to change movements/workouts in case of pain or discomfort. All in all, a great trainer, and I would absolutely recommend him.

10/10 Big Goals
By Max F. / Alexandria, United States

I love working with Ryan to reach new goals. He knows how to push limits without risking injury. We work together to plan short term goals that lead to long term well being. He is responsive to how I am feeling all while keeping me on the short and long term plans. Best trainer I've had in the past 11 years.

10/10 Great trainer who listens to what you need!
By Meredith Hurt / Alexandria, US

I've been fortunate to work with Ryan for the past two years at Fitness on the Run. When I had a hip injury (not due to working out), Ryan was, and continues to be, great with modifying our routines to ensure I keep fit while recovering from injury. He is always reminding me to slow down and really do each move with proper form, regardless if I'm doing weights or not. As I travel often for work, Ryan makes sure that I have workouts "on the go" as well, which has helped to keep up my routine when out of town. He is truly a trainer that listens to his clients, pushing them when needed but always making sure that they are receiving the best workout for their body that day.

10/10 Great attention to form!
By Allison D. / Alexandria, USA

Ryan is an excellent trainer and coach. He takes the time to carefully explain the proper form and technique and continues to tweak my moves to make sure I am getting the most benefit while being safe. He even trained me during my pregnancy - until just a week before my baby was born! Throughout that time, I always felt strong, healthy and safe during my workouts with Ryan. He is great!

10/10 Professional and Caring Personal Trainer
By Elaine P / Alexandria, USA

From my first fitness assessment with Ryan, I knew he would be a great choice to train with going forward. His attention to detail and thorough knowledge of technique was exactly what I was looking for in a trainer. He is always able to create a new and challenging workout program. Ryan has taught me strong kettlebell techniques as well as mixing in new exercises to keep workouts interesting. Initially, I was worried about injury or my ability, but Ryan is able to accurately assess in a thoughtful way when to add weight or reps to the fitness plan. His calm and encouraging demeanor makes me look forward to my workout program, which is a change from past personal training experiences. Going forward, I anticipate continuing my fitness journey with Ryan and learning more about strength training and growing stronger.

10/10 Thank you, Ryan!
By Dominika Cihanova / Alexandria, Usa

Ryan is the best trainer I could ever wished for. He is knowledgeable, professional and precise. From coaching standpoint, Ryan is patient, creative and encouraging.

10/10 Great Coach
By Coach Fury / BROOKLYN, USA

I've known Ryan for years but he we finally go to work together when he assisted me at an RKC and RKC 2. Ryan is an extremely smart and caring coach. As a Master Instructor, I know that I can trust Ryan to back me up and look after the candidates. I highly recommend him. -Fury

10/10 The quiet professional
By Joe Boffi / New York, usa

Ryan is an amazing instructor. He is very precise and can point into words some of the most complex ideas. No matter what your goal this man will get you there.

10/10 One of the best around
By Jason Kapnick / New York, USA

I attended the RKC2 certification last wekeend, and was lucky enough to have Ryan as an instructor at the course. Ryan's knowledge and technique of kettlebells are as good as any instructor out there. His demonstrations of technique looked like they had come directly out of a textbook. Not only that, he's smart, patient, and gave exactly the right coaching. I can say with confidence that he helped me become a better kettlebell-er. If you have the opportunity to work with Ryan, I can't recommend him highly enough.

10/10 Quality Trainer
By Alex Jones / Alexandria, United States

As I moved to Fitness on the Run, Ryan trained me through all of the kettlebell movements and exercises. He made the learning process very easy and his ability to adapt to my learning skills to modify his explainations so I may understand clearly was outstanding. He is very precise and recognizes every little detail in my kettlebell exercises. I would recommend Ryan to anyone wanting to learn more about kettlebells.
