Ryan Thain

Certified Fitness Coach

I was born and raised in Sandy, Utah. My original interest was in running. I ran cross-country in high school and enjoyed distance running. I also signed up for two gym classes during my junior and senior year. My interest in the military started at age 12 and immediately made me focus on the importance of physical fitness. A neighbor invited me to run with him at 5 am every morning. His background was as a Vietnam Veteran in the U.S. Army Special Forces. I originally planned on pursuing a career in the U.S. Army Special Forces until a meeting with my principal in high school. He was a Colonel in the Army Special Forces and provided feedback that changed my life forever! He stated that if he could relive his life he would join the U.S. Marines. Literally, days later I enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps delayed entry program at age 17. After graduating Marine Corps Recruit Depot on October 20th 1989 I was in the best shape of my entire life! I proudly scored a perfect score (300) on my Marine Corps Physical Fitness Test. This required 20 pull-ups, 80 sit-ups in 2 minutes, and a 3-mile run in 18:00 minutes or less. Afterward my physical fitness challenges continued as I finished Marine Combat Training and School of Infantry. The next several years I held leadership billets as a Fire Team Leader and Squad Leader as an Infantryman. I was responsible for ensuring my Marines remained physically fit. In 1995 I volunteered for recruiting duty. For the remaining years of my Marine Corps career I was responsible for the recruiting of quality applicants for the Marine Corps. It was also my responsibility to prepare each male or female recruit for the mental and physical rigors of recruit training. In addition, I was responsible to ensure my Marine Recruiters remained physically fit. My final duty station was in South Boston MA. I was responsible for screening potential applicants for service as Marine Corps officers. This also placed me responsible to prepare the candidates for the mental and physical rigors of Officer Candidate Course. I dedicated 24 years, 7 months, and 8 days serving honorably as a U.S. Marine! My final challenge was to take the Combat Fitness Test. I finished with a perfect score (300). Upon retirement I had a continued interest in physical fitness. After interviewing, I knew that Fitness Together would be a great next career! My passion is in meeting with potential clients. I ensure I focus on listening for the needs of each client. Together we determine specific goals and move forward with scheduling the first personal training session. Through communication and clarification I paint the picture for the assigned personal trainer to ensure each client will produce excellent results. I will ensure each new client receives a worthwhile return on investment!


Mike Espejo

Certified Fitness Coach

I am originally from New York, born and raised where at a very young age I began playing ice hockey. I played on various hockey teams growing up. I also played 4 years of college hockey at Western Connecticut State University, in Danbury. After college I needed something to keep me motivated. With my competitive background I started running and placed in the top 50 for my first 5k. After tackling a half marathon, I decided to do a local sprint triathlon, where I won my age group, once again I was hooked. Within the past 2 years I have finished 5 half ironman races, 1 ironman(Lake Placid) 1 marathon(NYC) and multiple half marathon races. With the aspirations of going professional in triathlon my hopes are high for the next years to come.

Fitness will always be a part of my life and I want to share my knowledge, experience and awareness with others. I continue to push and inspire many clients through objectives they thought were not possible.

Training Philosophy:
As humans we are meant to move. When your body is moving it is burning calories, so shortening rest periods and incorporating multi-joint, functional movements are great ways to increase the intensity of your workouts while teaching your body to move more efficiently.
