Ryan Delapena

Men’s Physique Posing Coach

My journey started at the age of 16, eating everything and anything, and ended up weighing 230lbs by 19. Due to relationship problems I decided to loose weight, as soon as I started trimming down I was constantly told to compete. I never wanted to be a bodybuilder, I just wanted to look good, well needless to say what started out as revenge turned into a passion for the art of bodybuilding. From 230lbs to 157lbs competition day I still felt like the fat Ryan, so till this day, never going back to being the fat Ryan is what motivates me so much. I’ve always helped friends and random people out, it’s what I do best, so I’d love to help change your life.

Hi I’m Landra – Im originally from Madison, South Dakota but I have lived in Sioux Falls for the past 5 years. I am extremely passionate about fitness and health and I love helping others go after their fitness goals. I have experience training clients of all ages, genders, and abilities. My experience includes training individuals one on one, teaching boot camps, teaching group exercise classes, and developing nutrition plans to help clients reach their goals. My ultimate goal is to help my clients go after their goals and believe in themselves.

In my spare time when I’m not at work or at the gym you can find me spending time with my family. I have a 15 year old little brother who is my entire world. I love watching him play sports and I take pride in the fact that he looks up to me as a role model. I enjoy being outdoors and camping with my family. I also love to travel and meet new people.
My love for fitness is continually growing and I’m excited to see where it leads me in the future. Knowing that I can inspire others to live a healthier and fit lifestyle is an amazing feeling and I can’t help but thank all of those who have inspired me on my fitness journey. I would love to help you reach your health and fitness goals!
