Ryan Fischer: Why Authenticity Sells And How You Can Grow A Brand On Instagram — The Strong Coach #16

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, played lacrosse, and football. Then, he got into skeleton and bobsled, and even qualified for the US Olympic Team Trials for both sports.

Fischer is also a big time crossfitter, who finished top 5 in the CrossFit Regionals for multiple years. He 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 Ryan and I talk about all things Instagram, Ryan’s roundabout sales pitch, old man syndrome, high intensity bodybuilding, and much more.
