I show people who are hopelessly in pain how to get back to the work and active life they love.
 

My clients often experience a significant reduction in pain or discomfort after just a few sessions with me.  They feel better mentally and experience significantly less stress and anxiety. 

Physically, they gain the confidence back to perform the activities they thought they were not going to be able to do again.  Relationships with their children, family and friends are strengthened because they can once again keep up with everyone!

In addition to helping people get out of pain, I am also very passionate about kettlebell training.  I am a level 2 RKC and absolutely love teaching people how to properly train with a kettlebell.  My clients see vast improvements in their strength and endurance while working with me.

Don't let pain cripple your life and hold you back from enjoying all the things you used to enjoy.  I'm here to help you.  Email me at rjkettlebell@gmail.com to schedule your free strategy session.

10/10 Excellent Trainer, Excellent Results
 
By Ary Levy / Silver Spring, USA

I’m writing to review my kettlebell training sessions with Ryan Jankowitz. They were a great experience where I learned valuable lessons. I didn’t take lessons for back pain, but I found that the exercises and posture helped my back much more than physical therapy I took years ago. I had studied and worked hard on a few books teaching how to swing kettlebells. When I took lessons with Ryan, he brought my skills to an entirely new level. He has a deep knowledge of the minutia of technique and his attention to detail made a huge difference in my kettlebell training. When I did an exercise such as a swing, what Ryan taught helped me to exercise better, use and feel my body in a much more efficient way and have a more positive training experience. Since starting with Ryan I have not had a single exercise injury. I feel better, physically and mentally. I found training sessions with Ryan to be a positive and valuable experience. His lessons stick. With the training tools he’s given me, I hope achieve many more years of great workouts.

 
10/10 The ideal instructor
 
By Andrew Armstrong / Alexandria, USA

Ryan is fantastic to work with; equal parts knowledgeable and patient. The ideal trainer. Its hard to come to training with less knowledge than I did, and he made the transition to training as positive as one could hope for. What is more, he is also genuinely kindhearted and personable. To close: if you're looking for someone to work with, gratz, your search is done.

 
10/10 A Knowledgeable and Patient Instructor
 
By Ev Clark / Alexandria, United States

Ryan has done personal training for my wife & me for the last six months. He has been very understanding of my physical limitations (chronic back pain) and has designed an exercise plan that helps us build core strength without aggravating my injury. He has helped me improve my form on pushups, planks, squats, and all kinds of kettlebell exercises. Highly recommended.

 
10/10 Great support for energy system develoment
 
By Scot Holliday / Wasington, USA

I went to Ryan wanting to have more awareness in my shoulders and increase my energy level. I had been doing Ashtanga yoga daily for 6 months and some jogging. I signed up to do 8 weekly personal training sessions with Ryan. By the 3rd week I was able to do a few basic kettle bell exercises. I found doing the kettle bell correctly for 10-20 minutes after doing yoga, increased my energy level another 20%. I also quickly had more strength in my shoulders. Kettle bell helped me engage more muscles, get more grounded, and strengthen my body. Ryan is a solid teacher. He listens well, is very positive, and is expert at teaching kettle bell. He let me make short videos at the end of each training session giving me reminders on what we covered. I now see it as a life long practice I can use anytime I like. It is nice even doing kettle bell for 3 minutes to get an energy boost. Using correct form and breathing makes kettle bell much more beneficial and energizing.

 
10/10 As good as they come!
 
By Janene Besch / Arlington, USA

I started seeing Ryan for personal training sessions after my back locked up. I knew I needed to do something but I was petrified that doing any form of workout would send it into spasms again. Enter Ryan. He made sure that we slowly built up my strength so that it didn't happen again, all the while making sure that I was using proper form, engaging the correct muscles, and getting in a good work out. I cannot thank him enough for the progress that I have made and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and progressional trainer, whether you are recovering from an injury or are an athlete.

 
10/10 Knowledgeable, Practical, Professional
 
By Salomon De La Cruz / Fairfax, USA

I first met Ryan after searching the local area for kettlebell classes. At the time I met him, I was a novice getting by on YouTube videos. But when I started experiencing back pain, I knew there were issues with my form and my desire to keep going with kettlebells compelled me to see professional help. Within a day of emailing Ryan, he responded and we met less than a week later. Ryan’s expertise was critical in correcting form issues, which led to alleviating pain. More importantly, I was introduced to a variety of different kettlebell routines that prevented the workouts from getting stale. It’s been five months since i’ve been working with Ryan and my enthusiasm for kettlebell workouts continues to rise. Thanks to his routines (tailored with my specific goals in mind) I’ve seen personal gains in both strength and endurance. I look forward to continuing my work with Ryan and would recommend him to anyone looking for an affable fitness professional.

 
10/10 Technique Expert
 
By Faatimah Muhammad / Alexandria, United States

I began training with Ryan in Sept 2018 after 18 months of physical therapy due to several injuries (hip, ankle, shoulder and knee) and surgeries. I was scheduled for one more surgery in Nov 18 to replace the labrum in my left hip. This was the second tear in the same hip within four years. My physical therapist recommended that I start working with a personal trainer to continue to build strength, flexibility, and functional movement before the surgery. At the time surgery appeared to be the only viable option to alleviate the daily pain and discomfort. After working with Ryan for about two months I felt stronger, had no severe pain, and canceled my surgery! He introduced me to kettlebells, how to breathe properly, and stretches to strengthen my body overall. I am deadlifting weight I never thought was possible, doing pushups, and performing kettlebell routines to strengthen my total body. Most importantly he is a technique expert and I feel stronger than I have in years. Working with Ryan has definitely improved the quality of my life. Thanks Ryan!

 
10/10 Excellent Experience
 
By Mark James / Washington D.C., United States

After spending countless hours with other trainers and watching online videos, my form still needed work. Ryan's training is excellent in multiple ways. First, he conveniently comes to your home. I didn't have to drive 30+ minutes to a specialized gym (he even brought a few kettlebells for me to try out!). Second, he has a present zen-like demeanor that allowed me to concentrate on my form and not feel rushed. Third, he gives excellent cues. If something's not working, he's found a few different ways for me to understand the techniques and execute them perfectly. Hire him.

 
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.
