Today, raise your dumbbells, burry your squats and let’s give three cheers to Ryan Russman for being Member of The Month. We’d like to thank him for all his hard work and positive energy he brings with him. Lets get to know Ryan a bit more.
Ryan grew up in Pittsburgh and resides in the Northside. He works as an accountant executive at a software company. Here are Ryan’s own words. “I have been wanting to build muscle and strength for a while but didn’t really know where to start, what lifts to do or how to do them properly and definitely didn’t know how to create an effective workout. With the suggestions from a couple friends and UF members I tried the powerful class, and immediately knew this is what I wanted. The welcoming attitude and knowledge everyone has at UF was exactly what I was looking for. It didn’t take long for me to find that my favorite lifts are squats & deadlifts, with my technique improving weekly I am seeing some great strides with these two lifts. I am always playing, “Don’t Stop Believin’” in my head as I try to hit a new PR, that extra motivation to never stop believing in how much I can push myself at the gym. UF has given me so much knowledge and helped me gain so much strength but more importantly, it is giving me the confidence & self-assurance that I never had when it came to lifting weights.”
Ryan, thank you for all you do and bring here to this community. We appreciate you!
