Ryan Barlow, Coach

Ryan is a proud alumnus of Arizona State University. He relocated to Tucson after college to pursue a career as a design and test engineer at Raytheon Missile Systems. Ryan loved working his new job as an engineer. However, after two months of sitting at his desk with relatively little physical activity, Ryan began hunting for a new gym that he could call home.

Ryan entered Wildcat’s doors a CrossFit novice in October of 2015, but quickly established himself as a regular. After competing in his first CrossFit Open in February 2016, Ryan decided that he wanted to better understand the sport of exercise. Ryan earned his CrossFit Level 1 (CF-L1) certificate alongside Coach Taylor and owner’s Noah and Jen (re-certification).

Ryan brings his background as a mathematics, science, and economics tutor, as well as experience as a former youth basketball coach to the Wildcat gym floor. Ryan loves teaching others about functional fitness and hopes to inspire all his athletes to purse a healthy and active lifestyle.

And Coach Baily is SO glad she did. 🙂 Baily first joined Wildcat CrossFit in 2012. She fell in love with the sport, the competitiveness, and the community. “I decided that I wanted to begin coaching because I wanted to bring the same excitement, competitiveness, and community to all the classes that I coach,” Baily says. “I want all of our members to fall in love with the sport and make exercising a part of their every day lives. I love teaching and I love Crossfit, it’s the perfect combination!”
