Podcast 41:18 Ryan Whited- Paragon Athletics part 1




Ryan Whited (in his own words): Athletics has been a life long passion of mine. I received my first trainer’s license at the age of 21 I’m now 45, so I’ve been training people for nearly 25 years. My dad was a professional athlete; this probably played role in my obsession. He was also injured very often, which obviously may have played a role in my obsession with prevention (mitigation). My wife and I are also athletes, I was a sponsored climber for nearly 20yrs.

I did not take the typical route for education because what I wanted to provide for athletes and others wasn’t typical. And classic schooling doesn’t suit me. However, I am very good at learning, so I bought many textbooks and began attending courses designed for advanced ED folks, which was sometimes confusing and annoying to many people attending these courses. It was like I was cutting in line. I am a classic autodidact. I have thankfully earned the trust of many orthopedic specialists and other care providers, and many of the people I work with now are often referrals from these providers. This has allowed me to fulfill my original vision for training and shift the current paradigm.
