I’ve been going for a few weeks now and it has been all I hoped it would be. I have been active in health and fitness activities for 25 years so I have a lot to compare to. I’m a runner, cyclist, weight lifter, you name it. This has been a brand new type of workout, even compared to other calisthenics I’ve done. The workouts are very

Calisthenics transformations and gains in one week!

hard and very enjoyable, and the results are amazing. Soreness you’ve never felt before without the feeling of overdoing or injury. Extremely balanced approach to working your muscles from the inside out, from head to toes. I did not like crossfit personally. The motto seemed to be “bust ass and go crazy”, and not much else. Ryan’s workouts certainly bust your ass but it feels very prescriptive, deliberate and balanced. Try a couple classes, you’ll get hooked on the calisthenics transformations that are to come.

Well firstly, I’d love to say how psyched I am to begin training with Focus Fitness Houston.I have been planning to begin training with Ryan who leads this exercise group since the summer and he has been consistent over time about me joining. Finally, I joined

yesterday. I love how there are lots of class times throughout the week, which is extremely helpful since I am a working high school student. I was able to attend his 5AM class yesterday and got a hell of a workout!I was capable of doing more then I thought through this first session. I am really looking forward to the results & I expect many from the look of the testimonials I’ve heard of.

If you’re looking to push your limits, and see what your are capable of over time, then this is for you!

Where to begin?! I am an ex-gymnast and swimmer. I quit sports for almost 11 years before I picked it all back up again nearly 4 years ago. In that time, I have not come close to remastering all of the gymnastics skills I had when I was younger. Before Ryan found me, I was just doing handstands and cartwheels! After just one class, Ryan had me pulling over the bar, doing windmills, and working on my bar kip. Since that class, my confidence, athletic ability, and physique have skyrocketed.
Whether just starting out or a seasoned athlete, Focus Fitness Calisthenics has something to offer you. The classes are small, supportive, and close-knit. Ryan, the owner and coach, is a talented athlete who does an outstanding job catering to all skill levels in the class. I never felt as though I was being ridiculed, mocked, judged, or objectified (which happens often in traditional gym settings).
Ryan is also HUGE on building a solid foundation to build strength on and building the micro muscles necessary for healthy range of motion and sustainable athleticism.
Overall, if you’re a beginner or an expert, you stand to gain something from Focus Fitness. They offer several classes daily, price fairly, and will truly help you achieve your goals.

I’ve been crossfitting for about 5yrs and still wasn’t able to do pistols, free standing handstands, or a dead hang unassisted pullups.

Calisthenics transformations took 2 weeks i saw Dramatic results with Calisthenics
The Calisthenics transformations only took 2 weeks to see dramatic results.

After just 4 sessions with Ryan’s calisthenics workouts I am a lot closer to those things and have no doubt I’ll nail them all in just a few more weeks. Also my flexibility has improved tons and he’s corrected my weak wrist issue. It’s so hard and painful but definitely the most productive and effective workout I’ve ever done. Can’t wait to see what my body will look like a month from now. 🙂

Love working out with Ryan at Memorial Park! This workout builds so much strength while still being low impact and gentle on my old injuries. Ryan’s calisthenics class has elements of gymnastics, so as an ex-gymnast, I really enjoy playing around with handstands and using the bars. There is also a big emphasis on proper form, which I appreciate.
I was skeptical of working out outside, but it’s all part of the fun…be prepared to get a little dirt on you though. Note that Focus will be moving to an indoor location in the next couple months in EaDo.
Overall, I highly recommend this calisthenics workout to any ex-gymnasts or anyone looking for a lower impact alternative to something like CrossFit / lifting weights.

Veronica Pineda

Calisthenics was so new to me. At first I was intimidated by the bars. But now bars are so fun. Ryan is super strong and helps everyone get a feel of their goals.
He helped me change my meal plan, and continues challenging my stamina.

Since February I feel so much stronger. My butt and arms look and feel wayyy better from all the body weight training.
Everyone at practice is awesome and their energy helps keep me motivated.
So blessed to have a form perfectionist trainer that challenges my enthusiasm for body weight training and flexibility.
Totally recommend this calisthenics transformation for anyone looking to lose weight, boost their energy, and impress some people with one flex : D

Aptly named. Get the accountability, motivation, and expertise to get the exact results you want. Ryan, whom I worked with, kept my works over a few months interesting, yet predictable. Show up, work hard, and you’ll get what you want out of it while enjoying the process! OR spend countless hours in the gym by yourself and more than likely abandon the effort.

Joan Valladares

Can I just say what a badass workout?? I didn’t quite know what to expect my first day, and I had my ass handed to me. It was very different from my own workouts, it challenged parts of my body that I didn’t even know I had. If you’re looking to look and BE strong, this is definitely the class for you.

Melissa Garcia
