Ryan Goldstein

Ryan Goldstein is an exercise physiologist, certified personal trainer and owner of Lyndhurst Fit Body Boot Camp. For the last 6.5 years he used his Masters degree in Exercise Science to help private clients, as well as patients at the Cleveland Clinic, lose weight and improve their overall lifestyle. Ryan is extremely passionate about helping residents of his community achieve their fitness and fat loss RESULTS.

In Ryan's Own Words:
I understand, from a variety of levels, what it is like to be uncomfortable in your skin or to want to have better control over your body or your desired outcomes. Growing up, I was always active and spent most of my time playing sports. When I started college, and my activity level changed, I didn’t just gain the “freshman 15”, I gained the freshman 40!! I hit a point where I looked in the mirror and said “I can’t do this anymore”… Maybe you can relate to that feeling.

On that day I committed to retraining my body AND my mind to embrace a healthier way of living. I made smarter food choices and followed a consistent routine of strength training and high intensity interval workouts that helped me burn fat, build muscle and finally gain back my confidence. After this experience, I dedicated my time to further my education so I could help others change their lives.

Our team will help you stay accountable by providing a cutting-edge fitness program in a fun and motivating atmosphere to help you reach your goals. We recognize that people have a life, so each 30 minute workout is strategically planned and scientifically proven to deliver REAL results and get people back to their day. Lyndhurst Fit Body Boot Camp isn’t just a gym, it is a place where our members enjoy being part of a community of like-minded people who are changing their lives with our unstoppable fitness formula!
