Athlete Profile – Coach Ryan Davis

Tells us about yourself… I was born and raised in Cache Valley. I have been married for 10 years to a lovely wife Amber that puts up with a lot of garbage from me. We have two kids Dawson and Kaizley.

What’s your day job? I own and operate a flooring sales and installation business called Davis Flooring, along with being a Certified Flight Instructor at a Leading Edge Aviation in Logan, UT. I teach people how to fly airplanes. From Private Pilots, to getting your Commercial ratings for the airlines or charter companies. Please feel free to contact me at 1-435-232-2473 anytime with any questions or for scheduling a flight whether your interested in lessons or if you would like to just to take a friend up on a flight just for fun. Feel what it’s like to take the controls and fly by yourself.

What’s your favorite WOD or Lift? I can’t think of a favorite workout but I have always enjoyed the Olympic lifts even though I’m terrible at them.

What is your favorite skill/movement that you have learned at CrossFit IoTA? As far as the movements go, I had experience in doing most things. As far as the skill goes, I think I have learned things from other trainers at IOTA that has made me a better trainer.

How has CrossFit changed your life? Crossfit has changed my life in many ways. First and foremost, I have taken better care of my body overall than I ever have before. I thought I was in decent shape and looked “okay” before I started Crossfit. To me, being in shape is important, but not as important as being conditioned. Because that is what really counts. Make sense?

What keeps you motivated and coming back for more? The comradery is a big one. I have made a lot of good friends. I love to teach and help people in reaching their fitness goals. As far as myself goes, I like to see how far I can go physically and mentally while I’m there. I also love the variance Crossfit has to offer.

What’s something you know now that you wish someone would have said to you when you started CrossFit? “Better work on those chicken legs” yeah you know who you are……

One word to describe me would be… Hmmmm enthusiastic.

I have always wanted… To make it to regionals as an individual and not look like an idiot.

Outside of the gym, I like to… Be at home with the family and do everything besides yard work. I despise mowing the lawn. I only do it out of pure necessity. haha

Three things you would always find in my fridge… Almond Milk, Eggs, and hopefully some kind of meat.

Something nobody knows about me or would be surprised to know about me… I compression fractured some vertebrae, I have a legitimate broken right toe, and my left elbow has a bone chip floating around in it.

Favorite physical activity outside of CFI… Pretty much anything outdoors when it’s not 100 degrees.

Favorite place to eat in Cache Valley … I don’t really eat out that much but I guess it would probably be Texas Road House.

Song(s) that gets me pumped up for a workout… Pretty much any music that’s not played on 94.5 VFX.

The last thing I ate was… A handful of grapes.

My proudest accomplishment is… Being the best father I can be to my kids and getting my Flight Instructor Certificate

My six month goal is… I’m always searching new ways to better myself as a trainer. As far as fitness goals I have many…… Clean and Jerk over 300, Snatch over 225, back squat over 400 and at least 15 unbroken ring muscle ups.

My favorite workout attire is… Is there a wrong answer?

My favorite workout partner(s)… I have a select few I enjoy working out with. We have similar goals and share the same workout styles. I heard once that finding good workout partners that are as good as or better than you is key to succeeding in your fitness goals. I feel like this is so true and very underrated.

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself what would the workout be? “Never Again” 30 down to 1 of Cal. Row and burpees So 30 cal row 30 burpees, 29 cal. row, 29 burpees, 28 and 28, 27 and 27, all the way to one of each.
