Ryan Bock
Ryan BockOwner/Head Trainer

Ever since my formative years all the way through my years as a college athlete….I have always been passionate about fitness, athletics, and anything related to how the human body works. Following my college graduation with an Exercise Science degree, I found my true calling as a personal trainer.

Whether it was receiving a text saying “My favorite jeans fit again, OMG!”, a friend calling me saying he hasn’t lifted that much since Junior year of college football, or receiving a big hug from a client who finally got off their blood pressure medication and could run around with their kids again. I was hooked to the feeling of knowing I made a difference in someone else’s life.

I take that sense of responsibility/purpose and truly dedicate myself to helping my clients achieve their goals. So whether you are trying to lose weight, get back that athletic physique you had during your prime, or simply are just looking for a more structured workout/nutrition plan to take the guess work out of the process, we are here to help.

I have used the same scientific nutrition principles and training concepts to successfully help 100’s of clients of all shapes and sizes over the years. So if you are tired of yo-yo dieting, guessing which workouts/nutrition plans are most effective for your goals, or simply are just too busy to sort through all the literature out there on nutrition/fitness yourself, reach out to us and give us a call. Hope to hear from you soon!

When I am not in the trenches trying to create “the perfect workout” or “most effective and safest fat loss cleanse”. I love hanging out with my wonderful family, working out with friends, and spending time with my better half Stephanie.

Kris Hickman
Kris HickmanChief Operations Officer/Client Relations Specialist
Kris’s journey with health and fitness has been a life long endevour.

A three-sport high school athlete, Kris was blessed with the opportunity to play college football at the next level. Family obligations forced him off the field, but he quickly transitioned from harassing quarterbacks on the field to coaching them from the sidelines.

Kris finished up his degree in Secondary Education at Western Michigan University while acting as a varsity assistant coach at high schools in Schoolcraft (MI) and Benton Harbor (MI). Upon graduation, he continued to coach as the head JV football coach at Benton Harbor for a season and now calls the games over the radio on Friday nights in the fall.

It takes a special kind of person to be a great motivator and coach. You have to have patience, invest yourself in others success, and consistently must go above and beyond to help people achieve their goals. These are skill sets Kris has put to use as a football coach, a leader of of his church’s youth ministry and now as E-Town’s Client Relations Specialist.

Kris understands that for people to find spiritual and mental health, physical health is key. It’s his goal to help others find the balance in their life that they’ve always desired and to help push them beyond what they thought possible.

When he’s not in the office, Kris loves to spend times outdoors with his lovely wife Alecia. They love to hike, kayak, and go whitewater rafting. If you spend enough time with Kris, you’ll soon learn that he is both a self-professed avid reader and board gamer.

Specialties:
Kris is the go-to guy. Whether it is being an accountability partner to members of the gym, managing social media, shooting over a nutrition plan, or scheduling…Kris is there to take care of everything behind the scenes to make sure the ship sails smoothly and clients receive the results they desire.

Jay Fossier
Jay FossierPersonal Trainer

Jay’s interest in coaching and fitness came about when he started coaching little league baseball several years ago. During this time he began running and training on his own to be a good example for the kids. Eventually he started to take interest in coaching people of all ages because he really enjoyed helping people set and achieve physical and athletic goals. When Jay isn’t out on the road running or in the gym working out, you are likely to find him spending time with family and friends, probably talking incessantly about his favorite sport…baseball!
