A son of Mexican immigrants, Ryan Vivar spent much of his life in poverty.

He now owns a personal training studio in Oklahoma City and runs a Fitness After 50 program for senior adults. Several of Ryan’s clients have lost 50 to 100 pounds with his guidance, and achieved goals in health and fitness they never thought possible. He has used his success to give back to his family, who he credits with providing him with strong values.
