Episode 85 features former CrossFit Games Athlete, Owner of CrossFit Chalk, and Host of the Real Chalk Podcast, Ryan Fischer. I was thrilled to have Ryan on the Podcast to share his interesting journey in the Olympics and CrossFit, to creating several successful businesses and living life on his own terms.
I have spent the last 15 years in the fitness industry with the majority of that time being dedicated to functional fitness. In 2010 I trained with the US Olympic Skeleton and Bobsled Teams (Qualifying for Olympic Trials in both sports). I also have been CrossFit Regionals qualifier 7 times. I have made fitness programs for the US Military, large corporations, and several professional athletes around the globe. I host the top fitness podcast on iTunes called, “Real Chalk” and I currently own and operate one of the top CrossFit affiliates in the world – CrossFit CHALK in Orange County, CA.

I’m a passionate guy about what I do. It’s important to me for every single person who meets me to know that without saying anything.In just a few years I went from homeless to a 7 figure business. I legit had nothing I’m from Toms River, NJ and my mom is by far my biggest fan @kimmy73158. I own @crossfitchalk in Orange County, Ca. I have one of the top podcasts in the world for health and fitness called “Real Chalk” on the @shruggedcollective . I also have a YouTube channel “ryanfischer” I originally was a helicopter pilot in Hawaii until I went back to school, moved to Utah, and trained with the Olympic bobsled and skeleton team for 4 years. I qualified for Olympic trials in both sports.
I went to the CrossFit Regionals 7 times and was the first person to threaten to kill a judge for scoring him incorrectly. Actually was kind of a big deal at the time. Again, I’m passionate. I don’t compete anymore because I need a knee replacement on my left knee. I spend all of my time these days creating fitness programs that are one of kind. People from all over the world do them and tag me daily. I legit cry once a month thinking about how all of this happened. I love my fans with all my heart, BUT I do hate stupid questions.

In my free time, I like to adventure the world in as many ways possible. I’ve hiked some of the worlds biggest mountains, rafted dangerous rivers, ridden my bike hundreds of miles, and I snowboard and surf regularly. I’m kind of a clean freak I’m 32 years old. I always dreamed of living in California. When I’m not working out I always listen to country music. I met my father for the first time when I was 24. We don’t talk, but it’s ok because my mom is all I ever needed and more. My favorite athlete of all time is Steve Prefontaine. I like chick flicks. I’m obsessed with large quantities of meat, backpacks, and getting a good deal. I truly believe that my most valuable assets are my memories, experiences, and friendships.
