What happened to Rylan?

If you were a regular reader of this blog at some point, you might have been curious about the rather abrupt cessation of posts; the most recent of which is dated more than two years ago!

I’m not even sure what compelled me to sit down and post this today, and not 6 months ago, or a year ago for that matter.

The situation is this: ¬†Before I stopped posting on this blog and others, my health had been slowly deteriorating for a number of years. ¬†At times I was so sick I didn’t leave the house for weeks one end. ¬†Even months.

For a long time, at least three years, I had no idea what was happening to me. ¬†I was in pain, pissed off, and scared shitless. ¬†Here I¬†am, a young man not yet 30 years old – who’s entire life and livelihood revolves around being healthy and teaching other people how to be healthy – ¬†and I literally felt like I was dying.

I couldn’t eat. ¬†My appetite was completely gone. ¬†I was experiencing unrelenting nausea during most of my waking hours, which soon developed into more severe stomach pain, intense panic attacks, along with a whole host of other symptoms.

I tried my best to keep up my business. ¬†As I got sicker my appointments got harder to keep. Eventually my clients were getting irritated with the number of times I had re-sceduled sessions. ¬†I remember trying to keep my voice from trembling when I had to call one of my favourite clients yet again, and move her appointment due to ‘car trouble’ or whatever my excuse of the day was. ¬†In reality I was pulled over to the side of the road retching and having a panic attack; but that was the last thing I wanted to tell her. ¬†I was so terrified of what she would think of me.

I had this story playing in my head that if my clients found out what was really going on with me, I would be exposed as some kind of phoney or fraud and I would lose all my business and not be able to pay my medical bills and support my family, and so on.  After all, who in their right mind would take health advice from someone so obviously un-healthy?!

Well, it happened anyway. ¬†I lost nearly all of my clients, my business plummeted, and I felt ruined. ¬†I was trying to keep afloat just hoping that one day soon my luck would turn around and I would be healthy enough to start working with clients again. ¬†Unfortunately, that day hasn’t come yet, but I hope it soon will.

However, I was finally given a diagnoses of Crohn’s disease – an autoimmune disorder that attacks the gastrointestinal system.

Today I am still very much fighting the effects of the disease – as I will for my entire life – but thanks to the support of my wife, my great doctor, and my family and friends, at this time it looks like I’m finally starting to gain the upper hand on this situation.

Realistically, with how slow my progress has been, I don’t imagine I will be able to get back to blogging or writing anytime soon. ¬†I take on a few private consulting gigs here and there when at all possible, but for at least ¬†the next year you can expect that I won’t be adding new content to any of my blogs and websites.

With that being said, I’m taking my own advice – advice that I’ve given to clients so many times before, and making my health priority number one. ¬†I hope you will all do the same.

All my best,

Kerina’s Fat Loss Project Results

Kerina did a superb job in the Fat Loss Project Рlosing 7.5 inches of fat even though by most standards she was already in great shape.  Her results are a testimony to the fact that the principles I teach work for all women, regardless of age or body type.  Nice work buddy Рyou made me proud!

From Kerina:

I cannot believe that 40 days is already up!!

I have known Coach Rylan all of my life, we grew up together and I witnessed his wieght struggles although I have to admit that he hide his emotions well as I had no idea how much it bothered him.  So to see his results with all of his hard work in studies and personal sweat to find the perfect combination of working out and eating clean has been all of the motivation I will ever need.  I am proud of my friend, my coach, to have done this for himself and am greatfull that he is sharing it with the world.  I would like to also congratulate you Rylan for all of your success and I wish you plenty more!!

Being as that I knew coach Rylan so well there was never any skeptisim felt my me at all, it was just hitting the time in my life that was right for me to keep myself going when the FLP was over and I have only myself to be accountable for. Luckly FLP 2 happened to be at that perfect time for me, it also helped a ton that I will be heading to Mexico on the 14th of this month and I wanted to look dinamite in my bikini!!

I have lost a total of 7lbs and 7.5 inches!!!

I absolutely love my results, there are areas that I could have pushed myself a little harder to get better results but now that I see where I could improve I am going to do just that!  I would definately recommend this program to every person i know, it is just too easy all you have to do it check your email and you have your meals and workouts right there.  All you have to do it act!!  This program is priceless!!

I would like to thank the most selfless coach (obviously coach Rylan) who puts his heart and soul into his work.  So Thank You Rylan you are going to change the world:)


Airplane Exercises

For this month’s issue of GNC’s WellBella magazine, I was asked to put together a program of airplane exercises that would allow you to stay in shape while you travel.¬† In the magazine you’ll find a number of very specific suggestions that I give to help you boost your energy as well as your immunity while you fly (to help you avoid catching every airborne bug that gets recirculated though the stale cabin air), in addition to some great inconspicuous exercises to do before and during your flight.
