BYOB-Fit: About Ryan
My name is Ryan Kolej. I have been one of the top trainers in CT for more than 10 years. I am a Nutritionist, N.A.S.M. Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist, owner of BYOB-Fit and Eating Easy. Other certifications I hold include: American Council on Exercise – Certified Weight Loss Specialist, American Fitness Professionals and Associates – Certified Nutrition and Weight Management, and hold a Level 1 Cross-Fit Coach Certification.
I started my career in fitness and nutrition more than a decade ago fueled by the positive impact fitness had on my life, and I found it extremely gratifying to be able to help improve the lives of others through health and fitness.
Believe it or not Sports – or anything “health and fitness” related did not make up a big part of my childhood. I was never the talented kid on the team and usually had to be appointed to a team by the coach as I was never picked by the other kids, but that’s the way it went for me. It wasn’t until my late teens that I developed a passion for health and fitness and started to make it a permanent part of my lifestyle. I started trying new fitness programs and practiced many different nutritional approaches trying to fine tune what works, and what doesn’t. I became even more interested in how the body works and how to make it work for me. I started to see changes in my own body. I could run further, I was getting stronger, and my clothes fit better. Seeing these results made me feel so good about myself, not to mention to complements I would get from others. So much had changed for me. I experienced firsthand how important living a healthier and more-fit life is by both how I felt and my new perspective on life as well. It was at this point that I decided I wanted to help others feel this way too. I was hungry for more and so what started out as a business focus in school quickly changed to fitness and nutrition.
I never wanted to be “that trainer” at a big box gym and so in 2004 I started my first business, Fitness On Demand LLC. “FOD” was an in-home personal training business that quickly added corporate fitness programs, nutrition, and private one-on-one personal training in a private studio here in CT. Now I own BYOB-Fit and couldn’t be happier. It is my job and commitment to help you make permanent changes to how you look and feel through personalized private personal training a nutritional coaching.
