My name is Ryan Huber and I am new to the Pit family as of this year. I was an intern here during my last semester of undergrad, then after the completion of my internship I came on as a part-time strength coach. Adding to my Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science, I am currently continuing my education at Illinois State University by getting my master’s degree in Exercise Physiology. I believe I offer a different approach to coaching because of the experiences I have had through many surgeries and multiple months of physical therapy. That is why I pride myself in injury prevention and take more of a technical style of coaching toward our Pit members. While offering many tools and techniques to help our members attain their health goals, my approach is to also encourage our members to improve their mobility, stability, and functional movement patterns. I offer a different mindset that adds to a great coaching staff and Pit family.
I have been involved in athletics for over 10 years ranging from football and wrestling to horseback riding. My passion for fitness has evolved from athlete to coaching. During my workouts, I love inspiring individuals while also pushing them to be the best version of themselves.
