About Tailored Strength

Strength training has played a huge part in our owner’s, Ryan, life. Presenting itself as more than weight on the bar, but as confidence built over time to navigate though all that life throws our way. With Tailored Strength, the philosophy of “stronger together” rings true. We all have our “stuff”—different things we deal with everyday—but what helps us handle it all is the community we keep. At Tailored Strength, we hold each other accountable in strength. We offer you all the physical tools you need to demonstrate strength—inside and out—and we’re looking forward to you joining us!

In your first consultation, our team will use a FMS movement screening to fully assess your fitness level so that we can understand your limitations, your areas for improvement, and your needs. We’ll conduct a brief interview to understand your current habits and schedule as well as any goals you might have. Then, we’ll walk through your options for training—we offer one-on-one or small group training—and you can expect something completely unique to your goals and needs no matter your selection.

It’s Tailored strength training, just for you.

He has achieved Bachelors of Science degrees in both Kinesiology and Human Nutrition from Kansas State University and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, a Certified Physical Preparation Specialist (CPPS), a Certified Personal Trainer through the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and holds the following certifications: Level 1 Coach- (Pn1), FRC Mobility Specialist - (FRCms), EXOS Performance Specialist, FMS Level 1, Power Plate Level 1, and American Red Cross CPR/AED.

Since living in Chicago, I’ve noticed a lack of a “better together” mentality and a deficit of community in the gym. I wanted to create a place where everyone who walks through the door, no matter their experience or goals, feels welcomed and a part of the Tailored Strength family. My goal is that you get that extra motivation and support you need to take your strength and health to the next level. I plan to make a difference in this industry, and I believe it starts with creating a community of like-minded people working together to build something that is too good to stay away from.
