Ryan Laughlin

Hey I’m Ryan.  I’m a husband and a father.  I currently Coach Weightlifting at Capital Weightlifting & CrossFit Schenectady.  I discovered Weightlifting during the pandemic and I became immediately infatuated with the sport.  To me is the perfect combination of strength and technique.  In High school I played soccer and threw shotput and discus.  After college I discovered powerlifting followed by CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting.  Outside of the gym I Snowboard, Mountain Bike, and hike.  

It was at a CrossFit gym where I finally decided to take control of my life. I was overweight, drinking far too often, and unhappy.  That’s when I signed up for the gym.  Over the course of a few months, thanks to the support of my community,  I lost the weight,  developed healthy habits, and a positive mindset.  I then started Coaching and that’s where my passion for helping people reach their goals began.
