Ryan: "To challenge myself."
Ryan: "I'm looking forward to putting on a great show and listening to the crowd scream for more."
Ryan: "My favourite part of the program is the challenge that it provides to make you grow as a person, physically, mentally and emotionally."
Ryan: "I would say that it is truly the opportunity of a lifetime. It tests you in so many ways and you become much better as a result, not just in your fighting skills but in all aspects of life. Mental toughness is a big part of this course, and you will learn how to break through any barriers that you thought stood in your way."
Ryan: "I'm a father of 3 beautiful kids, Khloe (12), Chase (13), and Bailey (16). Born and raised in Calgary. I am Metis. I have three older brothers; we are all within 4 years in age. I have 2 of the best parents you could ask for that support everything I do. (Although my mom is terrified to watch me fight.)
I always told myself that I would train and get in the cage before I turned 30 and it never happened. So when this opportunity came about I thought that this was my last chance to achieve my goal of fighting, and I'm so grateful I didn't let it pass me by.
One week before the W2W program started, my wife, who I've been with for 17 years, told me that she was leaving me. Clearly, I was devastated but one week later the program started and I had something to look forward to. I had something to distract me from life. I can honestly say that the W2W program saved me from crawling into a deep dark hole and possibly never coming out."
