About Us

Welcome to RyNo Strength

Authentic. Personal. Positive.

We’ve worked in the fitness industry for the past 16 years, and we are tired of seeing people confused in health and fitness.

We’ve worked at the highest level in college athletics in Division 1, completed over 20 courses and certifications, and we’ve helped over hundreds of everyday people reach their fitness goals and live a healthier lifestyle.

The information we’ve learned is known in the athletic world, but it’s not getting shared with the people who need it most: the moms and dads of our next generation, the teachers who are educating our children, and our parents who are slowly declining with age.

We work with clients to provide fitness and nutrition advice that they can actually implement into their busy schedules. There is a lot of free workout advice on the internet, as well as sample meal plans. Whilst these might seem like good value options, and a small percentage of people find success with them, most of them are a waste of time and are generic and unsustainable. The reason? They aren’t personalized to fit the person’s needs!

Seeing the troublesome state of health in the world, especially in family and friends, reminded us the world needs more good coaches. Obesity is at an all time high and the rates of depression are on the rise. We have all the free information on health and fitness so why is this happening? People need guidance from a trustworthy and authentic coach who knows what it’s like to feel these things. As someone who was diagnosed with high blood pressure and pre-diabetes, adopting exercise as a habit was the best thing that ever happened to me. We want to foster a community of health and wellness that is built around helping people prevent these negative things from happening in their lives.

Our Founder

Ryan Nosak

Ryan realized he had an extreme affinity for strength training and he began working at a local gym at age 15. He coached his friends through strength training sessions and realized he had a knack for teaching and inspiring others. His experiences at the gym throughout high school introduced him to the world of strength and conditioning and Ryan realized he wanted to become a coach. Ryan attended Penn State University for his undergraduate degree in Kinesiology, where he worked as a student coach for the Penn State Nittany Lions football team, as well as numerous other sports.

Ryan’s coaching journey spans 9 years across Division 1 college athletics, with stops along the way at Tennessee State University, Vanderbilt, Robert Morris University, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and more recently, DePaul University. He has worked at Power 5 universities, aided in the training of multiple professional athletes, and has been mentored by NFL strength and conditioning coaches. Outside of college athletics, Ryan has used his experience to inform and improve the lives of numerous clients who want to be more comfortable in their own skin.
Lead Trainer

Miguel Sanchez

Miguel’s first experience in strength and conditioning came while he was a soccer player at Benedictine University. When he walked into the offseason with little to no knowledge on proper strength training in the gym, he felt overwhelmed and confused by exercises he watched. He was fortunate to have a strength and conditioning coach that helped guide him through technique, improve confidence, and improve his strength levels. The following season he noticed improved performance in soccer and his team were able to make a run in the NCAA Tournament. This led Miguel to pursue a career in the strength and conditioning field to pay it forward and have a positive impact on people’s lives through strength training.

After graduating college, Miguel worked with youth athletes, high school athletes, Division 1 athletes, and general fitness clients. He obtained his certification as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the NSCA. Over the course of four years, he has had the opportunity to work with Sport Performance Departments working with the Olympic Sport Teams at DePaul University, and High School Football Strength and Conditioning at Riverside-Brookfield and Nazareth Academy. These experiences have helped Miguel provide a second to none experience to clients by educating them on resistance training and working with them to accomplish their goals in fitness.

Miguel completed his undergraduate degree in Exercise Sport Studies from Benedictine University. His certifications include the CSCS and the USAW-Level 1 for teaching Olympic movements.

I have worked with Ryan for over 5 years both in person and virtually. He is an incredible strength coach who will meet you where you are at, at any stage in your life, and help you reach your goals. He is truly caring and invested in you becoming the best you can be. I have nothing but praise for Ryan and would recommend him to any of my friends or family! He has helped me with not only weight loss and strength gains but also creating a lifestyle that is focused on consistency and small wins! 10/10 recommended!!!

I had the opportunity to have Ryan as my strength and conditioning coach over the course of my Track and Field career at DePaul University. Over our 3 years together, Ryan helped me get my squat max up to 500lbs, while also helping to improve my 100 meter dash time to 10.60. Ryan not only helped me to get stronger and faster, but also gave me the knowledge to make better lifestyle choices (sleep, diet, etc,), which made me feel better and stay healthy throughout the track season.Since I graduated college, Ryan has helped me a ton with transitioning from the life of a student athlete. Working with Ryan remotely, he has helped to stay in shape and feel healthier and happier. He is my go-to source of information when it comes to training, diet, sleep, and general health. He always stays on top of his education and is constantly learning new things regarding health and fitness, so he is an incredible resource to have.No doubt the best of the best!

I’ve been working with Ryan remotely for a little over six months now and “happy with the results” doesn’t even begin to cover it. I reached out for help with both strength training programming and nutrition coaching and I absolutely love how things are going.When we started, Ryan really wanted to understand my history and where I was at to find the best way forward to meet my goals and keep growing. We consistently touch base on how I’m doing and I am able to get much needed feedback on form and technique even from a time zone away. He uses the Teambuildr app to build my workouts which allows me to add notes on how I’m feeling and ask questions that he can answer when he reviews my workout. Ryan is very skilled at designing a lifting program. I’m able to go in each lift knowing I’ll be able to make improvements in both form and strength with his guidance. Ryan also has been helping me with nutrition and setting macro goals that are compatible with my new lifestyle. He’s responsive, insightful, and helping me learn how to maximize my macros for the level of lifting that I’m doing. I’ve seen great results and not only can feel myself getting stronger, but I can clearly see it too.My schedule has been in flux the past couple of weeks and Ryan has been incredibly helpful in adjusting my program to work with the changes instead of me feeling like I don’t know how to make it work. This is just one of the ways he shows that he really is rooting for you. He wants you to enjoy your workouts and not make it a “chore” you have to fit in. He’s there for you as a coach and as an accountability partner who wants to see you improve. I highly recommend RyNo Strength for anyone looking for a trainer.

I have been training once a week with Ryan for almost a year now and my strength and confidence in the gym have both skyrocketed. I feel healthy and supported in my fitness journey and goals. I would recommend Ryan and RyNo strength to anyone looking to make a change in their fitness journey.

Ryan has literally changed my life. I have been in and out of fitness for most of my adult life. I could never find a way to engage in a training program that I both enjoyed and saw results from.I was referred to Ryan through a mutual friend. Since I have begun to work with him (around 2 months ago) I have lost over 20 pounds, gained a ton muscle, and learned to actually LOVE working out.His program is easy to follow. The app is super helpful with videos and all other necessary info for each exercise. On top of that he is always available for any questions I have had along my fitness journey. I also have a history of multiple back injuries and Ryan has been able to adjust my routines as necessary to overcome this obstacle.Truly, this model of a remote fitness coach is one of the best investments in my health I have ever made. The accountability, consistency, and motivation this has provided has started me on an amazing health journey and I could not be happier.

Ryan is awesome! This isn’t just a cookie cutter program he sends to all his clients. It’s personal and made specifically for you, your goals, and your restrictions (injured former athlete here). He’s always available and is quick to modify things to work best for you! Plus the app he uses is awesome for tracking progress. I’ve referred a friend to him as well and the results Ryan’s clients achieve speak for themselves! Working with him is a great investment in yourself and your health.

I've been training with Ryan for approximately a year and a half. After I got engaged, I knew I wanted to seek out a trainer to get me into great shape mentally and physically for my wedding. He took the time to understand my goals and to put a workout plan into place to get me to where I wanted to be. I noticed an apparent physical change while working out with Ryan right away. We focused on building lean muscle and isolating each muscle group. I have never felt and looked better while working out with Ryan (and I was a former college athlete). Ryan knows how to get results and how to have fun doing it.Not only is his training top notch, but he’s very communicative and is flexible with your schedule. He was able to bump up my training sessions to 3x a week in the last few months prior to my wedding. He even saw me on Friday afternoons. He is dedicated to his clients and wants them to be pleased with the results. Additionally, while I was out of town, he would send me workouts I could do on my own to continue the progress we made.He has a welcoming and personal demeanor. The training sessions are extremely rewarding but also fun because of the wonderful conversations we have. He is a joy to be around which makes working out that much better!Because of training sessions with Ryan, I was extremely pleased with the way I looked and felt at my wedding! I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to make a physical and/or lifestyle change. Thanks for everything, Ryan.

I used RyNo Strength for approximately 8 months participating in the remote program. Ryan set me up with a nutrition and workout plan to help reach, and most importantly maintain my weight goals. Through his remote program I lost over 25 lbs during my time! I also gained strength and improved my cardio! I went from barely running a mile to just completing my first 10 mile race last month! Friends and family are always amazed at the change my body went through during this time. Friends now refer to me as Slim Jim instead of Big Jim! I was very new to strength training and Ryan walked me through the whole process. Definitely recommend to newbies (like myself) to help set you up for a healthier lifestyle. You won't regret investing in yourself!

RyNo Strength is great! I am working with Ryan and Miguel to support my goals of health, mobility and strength. Their customized workouts are consistently focused and challenging. I’ve reached new highs on weights, while also maintaining health and improving sleep based on their advice. They listen to my goals and develop plans that help me achieve them. Huge thanks to Ryan and Miguel for keeping me on the path to wellness - and for the new PRs.

I’ve been working with Ryan for around 9 years both in person and remotely. I’ve never met another trainer as dedicated to continually learning and catering to an individual’s specific wants and needs. Working with Ryan is extremely fun and I highly recommend working with him!

Working with Ryno Strength for the last 3+ years has been very helpful for not only building lean muscle and strength but also building in accountability towards reaching my goals.As a remote client, Ryan does a great job of using technology, check ins, and well developed training programs to help you reach whatever goal you envision. He is a treasure trove of knowledge on everything training as well as diet and I’m looking forward to continually being a client.

I’ve been working with Ryan remote for a few months now and absolutely love it! Communication is consistent and easy, his app is amazingly user friendly and he’s always ready to help or modify a program based on your feedback. He’s super flexible and understanding of my inconsistent schedule and has made it super easy to keep on track with everythingI’ve seen great results and really enjoy sharing feedback with Ryan throughout the training cycles. I’d highly encourage anyone seeking a trainer to hit him up (any experience level whether you’ve been lifting for years or just getting into it) I couldn’t be happier and look forward to continuing to work with him into the future

Teaming up with RyNo Strength has really changed my lifestyle for the better. For the past year I have been working with Ryan, and he has provided me with tools to help guide me to live a happier and healthier lifestyle! It has changed my life in more ways then he’ll know. From working crazy long hours to traveling constantly, Ryan can help anyone from any lifestyle achieve their health and fitness goals! And along with loosing pounds and inches, you gain physical and mental strength to try new things like my first 5k this year! Thanks for everything Ryan!

I have worked with Ryan for about 18 months as a virtual client living in North Carolina. Ryan sends me my monthly program with videos if I ever get lost. He truly is amazing, his level of knowledge and application is exceptional. Ryan always checks in on me and we have tri weekly phone calls to see how I am doing. He also sends me texts messages constantly. I have increased my strength significantly in addition to losing some weight. As a personal trainer myself I felt like I needed a program to push me. I found it!!Even if you're not in Chicago and hundreds of miles away Ryan will help you get to your goals and ensure you are having a blast doing it.

We have been training with Ryan virtually since 2021 and absolutely love it! We live in indianapolis and have training sessions once a week. He provides so much insight and guidance for my wife and I who train together. He customizes our diets and workouts to meet our goals. He has helped us with weight loss, dieting (properly), as well as sleep and stress management techniques. I also have flexibility issues and he designed a stretching routine I could do daily at the office. He goes above and beyond to make sure you’re improving your overall health and fitness. Can’t say enough good things about our experience with him.

RyNo Strength has helped me reach my weight loss goals, they provide me with customized workouts via an app that makes it easy to complete the workouts because I am not currently in Chicago. They are challenging, but very doable and engaging. I look forward to my workouts everyday and always get excited when it's time for a new round of them! RyNo Strength is always there to encourage me when need it and always there for support!

I have enjoyed working with Ryan, even though we live 500 miles apart. He takes the time to develop workout plans for my life, helps me to keep track of nutrition and nutritional values (with my goals in mind) and he offers guidance/feedback whenever and wherever I need. Having a strength coach is not something I previously would have done, but he has helped me to achieve my fitness goals up to this point, and we have a plan in place to take the “next steps” as life and opportunities present themselves.I’m thankful for his impact on my life, and if you are thinking of taking the “leap” to have someone guide your fitness goals, Ryan is an excellent choice.

I have been a remote client of Ryan's for over three months and my experience has been great. Ryan went to great lengths to understand my fitness level, my life schedule and how I wanted to incorporate workouts, and my future goals.Ryan uses the Teambuildr app to provide you with your workouts and each exercise includes a demonstration video to help you through any unfamiliar movements. It is a great way for him to track your progress and ask the right questions about whether you are on track to meet your goals.Most importantly, Ryan is responsive and takes the time to understand you as a client as you continue to grow and develop. We have worked through injuries and new exercise focuses, and the workouts he creates are an ideal balance of challenging and rewarding. As a coach, he truly wants you to not only reach your goals, but more importantly, to enjoy the process.

Ryan is phenomenal trainer and a breath of fresh air. He has a very welcoming and personable demeanor which is nice when you first start because often times personal training can be daunting or intimidating but I felt extremely comfortable with Ryan from day 1. He also has a vast knowledge of fitness, health and the industry as whole, not to mention it’s evident he cares greatly about his client’s personal well being. I am so grateful I found RyNo Strength because it’s everything that I could ask for when it comes to personal training.

I've been training with Ryan for several years now, it has been an excellent experience. Ryan does a great job of making workouts challenging, while at the same time knowing what’s to far so I’m not totally exhausted or unnecessarily sore. I am in much better shape and more confident about exercising than when I started with Ryan.I do 2 sessions a week with Ryan. Prior to the pandemic these were in person, but Ryan has made virtual sessions very effective. Another big plus is that he always gives me a plan for a 3rd workout to complete on my own each week.With Ryan there is a great balance between getting really confident with the various exercises while also getting new and challenging ones to avoid working out getting monotonous.
