Ryan Fischer’s entire life has always been about fitness. At the age of 12 he was a world ranked BMX racer. In high-school he ran track at just about every distance, played lacrosse, and football at the varsity level since his freshman year. As Ryan grew up he got into skeleton and boblsed and qualified for the US Olympic Team Trials for both sports. Ryan has finished top 5 in the CrossFit Regionals for the past 3 years. Fischer even finished top 20 in the world in the CrossFit Open for the past 3 years also.
Fischer went from being homeless, couch surfing, stealing food at Whole Foods, and a stint as a male stripper, to becoming owner of the most successful gym in Orange County, CrossFit Chalk. He also created Chalk Online, a groundbreaking corporate wellness program.
Fischer always had a belief that life would work itself out if he kept working hard on his passions. In this episode of Barbell Shrugged Fischer discusses why people respond to false information, how flexible dieting won’t fix your shitty nutrition habits, why you need to stare down the fire and not back down, and, the big one, Ryan Fischer’s life story.

Take a closer look into my signature training style and listen to why I do it. After selling thousands of books on a training method that was originally made to work around my injuries… I dug a little deeper into some old journals of some of the greatest strength coaches of our time. I mixed it with some sexy bodybuilding movements, intense cardio, and the biggest bang for your buck accessories. And HIIB (High intensity interval bodybuilding) was born. _ Check out my newest VLOG by clicking the link in my bio! YouTube world, here I come! 🎥: @coltonduncanj
