"Thanks Ryan for the tailored program. Things have been very restrictive over here at my place but he communicated well with me and made sure I get something out of it. I am looking forward to more tailored training with him and I am sure in the future it would only get better as COVID restrictions get lifted."

"Since starting Apex remote training for World Chase Tag four months ago, Ryan has worked with me almost daily to help reach my training goals. The program has taken me from being a decent athlete to one of the fastest parkour athletes in Colorado! I added six inches to my box jump, shaved seconds off of my speed parkour runs, and gained ten pounds of muscle. I cannot recommend Apex remote training enough if you want to jump further, run faster, lift heavier, or just want to improve your athleticism with one of the best coaches in parkour."

"Doing Ryan Ford's remote training program has been so beneficial to my training. I already see results in the first 6 weeks. Thanks for being a great coach 😁"

@ryanmford has been putting a lot of work into building his online coaching/programming! He has limited spots, so I’d hit him up soon. ⠀ I always thought parkour was cool, but never thought that I would be able to do it. About a year and a half ago, I finally asked Ryan if he could help me get better at climb-ups (CU) because those seemed the most fun and useful to me. I was coming back from a broken elbow and rib, and felt like it could help me gain some strength back (and build more - being a leg dominant athlete). He designed a special 5-week climb-up intensive program for me which brought me from: ⠀ ~ level 1.5 CU ➡️ level 2.5 CU ~ 5 CUs for time of 61.30 sec ➡️ 16.38 sec ⠀ After my climb-up progress, I felt confident enough to learn more parkour. I was too nervous to train around anyone else so Ryan gave me mini-lessons outside. A couple months later, I ended up competing in a few competitions and doing his power^ program a few times. In the 1.5 year span of training with Ryan, I made some big gains: ⠀ ~ Broad jump 7’11” ➡️ 8’7.5” ~ Box jump 40” ➡️ 51” ~ Multiple weightlifting PRs + overall better technique and confidence ⠀ On top of all the parkour skills I’ve learned, I also learned useful new lifts like power cleans and split squats. Not only did the training with Ryan help me get better at parkour, but I noticed the strength training also translated over to my tricking. I found myself being more confident in my movement and also while teaching parkour. ⠀ I would teach a lot of different acro/tricking classes, but never felt confident enough in my abilities to teach parkour until I spent time training with Ryan. Learning many drills/basics first hand helped expand my knowledge and confidence enough to want to teach others. ⠀ I definitely wouldn’t be the athlete (or person) I am today without Ryan. The thought of other people being able to benefit as much as I do from training with Ryan makes me really happy. You should definitely check it out 🙂 🎶 @logic

🇫🇷 Since late February, @mehdi.hadim and I have been working together through various remote training systems. We custom-built his program to build landing strength, jumping power, quicker climb-ups, and other key skills for speed parkour. ⠀ For both of us, the first 6-week block was a learning lesson in adaptability. Due to quarantine, we had to make a few big changes mid-program. Without regular gym access, and all the other complications of stay-home regulations, it got much harder to stay on track. ⠀ Much respect to Mehdi for working hard through rough conditions. Despite the adversity, he still made solid progress on jumps, climb-ups, and other speed related challenges. Hopefully we can get back to the next block soon, under much improved conditions! ⠀ @mehdi.hadim 🗣 “I’d like to thank @ryanmford for his training program that I am currently following. It’s not finished but I can already feel the benefits of it. ⠀ I think everything worked well during this training block. It was physically exhausting but I felt it made me work on my main weaknesses. I could feel it made me stronger than I was when I started.” ⠀ Feel free to DM me if interested in our heavily individualized remote training programs. We have a range of specialized strategies for developing parkour skills, strength, power, speed, & mobility 💥 ⠀ #parkourstrength @parkouredu @apexsom

"I have followed Ryan for a while now and enjoy his resources and get a lot out of his knowledge and expertise. I highly recommend Apex remote training. It is super accessible, tailored to where I am at, and with regular feedback on all of the exercises I am doing."
Paula Flinn 🇦🇺

"It's extremely helpful to work with Ryan and tap into his years of experience, knowledge, and foresight. From working through my current injuries to making sure I avoid future ones, the coaching is amazing and I'm excited that this program will have me competition-ready. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to step up their game."

"Apex Remote made me work on key movements to improve my flexibility and strength. Having feedback on the exercises is super helpful too, as there are small details I sometimes let get past me."

🇮🇹 After 6 weeks of remote training/programming work with @pablo_pimazzoni in Verona, Italy, some solid results are in: ⠀ ▫️ Back squat +10 kg ▫️ Broad jump +4 cm ▫️ Running box jump +7 cm ▫️ 5 climb-ups for time -1.7 sec ⠀ I’m excited to see Pablo’s gains in these areas since our main goals at the start were to: 1) rebuild leg strength/mobility and confidence after a knee injury 2) improve explosive jumping/landing power 3) increase climb-up speed & skill 🔥 ⠀ Looking forward to keeping up the momentum in our next 6 week block! ——— @pablo_pimazzoni 🗣 “The back squat was tough but glad I got it. It's the heaviest single rep squat I've done. Would like to retest it at some point to try and get a cleaner rep. My right knee hasn't been a problem at all and I was confident enough to start getting a nice rebound at the bottom of the squat. ⠀ The jumps improved as well, I went up in height with both variations (running box jump & depth jump for height). ⠀ I’ve added a cheeky backflip test. I'm happy I've still got them although I haven't tried them since the knee injury and haven't trained them much in general. ⠀ I definitely think Poliquin step-ups helped. My knee feels a lot better than it did at the beginning of the program. I'm sure the gradual increase in squat weight and confidence helped too. I think it was definitely worth adding to the program 🙂 ⠀ Muscle-ups have improved quite a bit. ⠀ Most times I've managed to get at least one or two level 3 climb-ups on the good side and just below that on the bad side. ⠀ Also I finally got a bit better at demon dips. Not full range of motion yet but getting there. ⠀ Overall it's going well and I'm really happy I can jump and train hard pain free now. Looking forward to a new training block!” ——— #parkourstrength @parkouredu @apexsom

🇫🇮 @juliusbrander and I have been working together via remote training/programming since January. His goals include bigger jumps, quicker climb-ups, and faster speed parkour runs. I think maybe he also said something about breaking the world record for most resistance bands full squatted at once? 🤷🏻‍♂️ 😅 ⠀ Significant strength *and* power gains don’t always happen in every training block. Sometimes it’s one or the other (still a win), but Julius earned a double-win this time (stronger + more explosive): ⠀ 📈 Max broad jump: 274 cm to 286 cm 📈 1RM back squat: 140 kg to 145 kg 📉 5 climb-ups for time: 11.90 sec to 10.69 sec ⠀ “The balance between strength work and parkour was great. Felt like it was easy to progress in both at the same time. ⠀ Also, really loved that the strength training was closely related to parkour (plyometrics, climb-up stuff, etc.) as it felt like I was able to feel the improvement in my parkour training straight away. ⠀ Really enjoying this way of training and it seems to be working so far.” ⠀ — @juliusbrander ⠀ Looking forward to building more gains with Julius through our next 6-week training block, starting Monday. This time the focus is on power/peaking 💥 ⠀ DM/email me if you’re interested in remote training & programming options—personalized for your goals, training history, strengths & weaknesses, injuries/imbalances, etc. ⠀ #parkourstrength @parkouredu @apexsom

"Thank you for the programming! We played tag tonight and I felt a lot faster with quadrupedal movement and change of direction. It felt like training was really paying off."

"Ryan is seriously educated at parkour specific training and I highly recommend checking out his programs. My single-leg landings and plyo power feel better and more consistent. I feel healthier overall tbh. Knees never hurt now either."

⚔️2020 I am coming 🏆 • I am really happy to announce that I have officially started my training for the 2020 season, and I have chosen to work with the great @ryanmford for being the best I can possibly be ! I have always looked for a knowledgeable coach but those are very rare to find in parkour. Last year I was working with @ovrhuman but he is too busy this time around. What made me choose to work with Ryan became obvious when I came to his house and saw what he was reading 📖 : Supertraining by Verkhoshansky and Mel C Siff. This book was recommended to me by the sempai @mich.todorovic. I also met some students of Ryan and people that have spent time at the Colorado Parkour community and it seems like 90 percent of the people training there are monsters ! • We started things off by seeing where do I stand in terms of jumping power and overall strength, so here are the results : • Dead Lift : 170 kg • 5 climb up : 10:32” • Broad jump : 291cm • Running box jump : 136 cm • Backsquat : 117,5 kg • I am very underwhelmed by my results, but I have to face the truth of my mediocrity. • I will be posting my progress as time passes. Right now I am very busy with working as an acrobat on a musicale in #Paris So I cannot train as much as I would want, however once I finish on January 5th expect me to turn #UltraInstinct • 💪LETS FUCKING GO ⚔️ • Follow : @blacklistparkour #parkour #strength #weightlifting #anime #tokyo2020 #nevergiveup #athlete #blacklist

"The remote training program is working well for me. It's easy to see improvement in different areas, and Apex allows me to influence the program to fields I'm extra interested in. It has been a fun way to get out and move during the pandemic. I've been physically active for my adult life but with Apex I feel like I really know what I'm doing and why. There are good tutorials and information about all the exercises. Ryan answers all additional questions I have about my training, even if it's not directly linked to parkour."

"Power training with Ryan was super informative and gave me a foundation to start lifting on my own (how often to lift, what weight to lift at, how many reps/sets to do, etc.). I learned a lot. Thanks!"
