Trainer Ryan Young caught eating cookies. Don’t worry, they’re paleo.

Trainer Ryan Young, the man, the legend, but now no longer the myth. . . 
How did you get started with CrossFit?
 
I started crossfitting at my church about 5 years ago. One of the pastors got his level one and converted part of the warehouse into a gym with donated and homemade equipment. I had no idea what Crossfit was and a buddy of mine talked me into it. It was not pretty, but it got the job done.
 
What brought you to Verve?
 
During the 2011 open, I needed my scores validated at an affiliate, so I came to Verve. Rich McClung (the Coors guy) was helping train at my church and talked me into coming. After 1 workout at Verve and being a little scared of Cherie’s loud voice (BTW there is absolutely nothing to be scared of. Probably one of the nicest and sincerest people I know)(That’s right, I said sincerest and used double parenthesis. BAM), I was in.
 
Your main profession is educating the youth of America, what made you want to become a teacher?
 
I had no idea what I was doing in college. I was there for three years before I decided anything. I think it was Abbey, who knew she wanted to be a teacher and once that seed was planted, the rest is, as we say, history.
 
How did you meet your wife Abbey?
 
Love this one. Abbey secretly stalked me in high school until I was available. Then, she pounced (quite literally too J) Our first date was prom when we were 15 and 16.
 
I hear you can’t take a picture without making a silly face, what’s up with that?
 
It’s too boring. Why just smile when you can look ridiculous. I like to think that someday when I’m long gone, people will still look at my Facebook page (because I don’t know if those ever go away) and smile because I just look stupid all the time. 
 
Which one of your kids is your favorite? (Don’t worry, they don’t read the blog yet)
 
Well I’ve known Jonah longer and he can ride a bike. But, Luke doesn’t bother me as often so… 
 
What do you do when you are not in the gym getting swole or shaping the young minds of America?
 
Dishes. Picking up dog poop. Sleeping. That really is about it. Before I had responsibility though, I was snowboarding a lot. I loved going to the movies. Mountain biking. Kickin’ it and making out.
 
What is your favorite CrossFit WOD?
 
The one I cherry pick. Working out is hard and it hurts. So, anytime I don’t do it is great. I guess Elizabeth. I think that’s it. The one with heavy deadlift and handstand pushups. 
 
What is your greatest CrossFit achievement thus far?
 
A sub 2:30 Fran time.
 
What is your most embarrassing/ awkward gym moment?
 
Well I typically don’t get embarrassed that easily. I suppose a couple months ago maybe I totally ripped my shorts. But, what’s to get embarrassed about? I was probably front squatting like 350 for reps. My gluteus-maximus was just so swole that my shorts couldn’t handle it anymore. So that may have been a bit awkward.
 
Ryan, this is it, what is the last thing you want to leave the people of Verve knowing about you? 
 
I have an unhealthy relationship with sugar.

  91. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
