The Art of Fitness

How to focus on the important things. The Ryan Elrod Episode.

On this episode of The Art of Fitness, Steve talks with Ryan Elrod.

Ryan is a 34 year old acrobat and professional functional fitness athlete.

Living in Orlando Florida, Ryan has been a performer with Cirque Du Soleil for almost a decade, is a current member of the DC Brawlers in the National Pro Grid League, and is the oldest individual male to qualify for the 2017 CrossFit Games.

In spite of all of this, Ryan is most Proud of his family. He is a dedicated husband, a loving father to a 4 year old boy, and is excited to welcome his second child, a baby girl, who will arrive in late September.

In this episode, Ryan goes into detail about how difficult it was to be able to say they had a second child coming. He and his wife were in fertility treatment for nearly three years until their doctor found the right combination of treatment to help them finally get pregnant. Unfortunately, the very treatment that brought them so much joy is also the reason that Ryan has been disqualified, with a 2 year ban, from competing in this year’s CrossFit Games.
