“I have been a part of this team for about a year after watching it for the previous 2. This is an incredible team and a coach combo. The passion, knowledge, organization, attention to detail are unparalleled. Everything, from programming, rapid feedback, fantastic content both available to public and in the clients’ area of Ryan’s website, the peaking protocols and show day protocols blew my mind and I am not easily impressed. As an athlete, all one has to do is their job – everything else has been thought of, planned, prepared and managed. The show day experience is a whole another level. Ryan is incredibly invested in his athletes and not only in their performance but their health and longevity. He cares equally passionately both for superstars on his team and those making incremental improvements. As a someone on the more “mature” side with occasional limitations, he was able to put together protocols to work within my capacity when that was limited and still succeed and get back on the winning track. And he pushed me to work so much harder than I thought I could once I was physically capable of it.  I can’t say enough good things about team SUF!”

I can’t begin to explain how amazing it is working with Ryan and the Team SUF Staff. My first prep and competition season was difficult because my body wasn’t always cooperating but Ryan made me feel at ease and made necessary adjustments to make sure I was ready to step on stage come show day. He put my overall health and wellness first and never allowed me to get down on myself. Whether it was adjusting my plan, posing sessions, Shauna making me the most amazing suits or knowing I had nothing to worry about come show day, Ryan and the team covered it all. The best part of being part of Team SUF is the show day experience. All I did was show up and everything else was taken care of, tans, meals, posing, hair, makeup, you name it they took care of it. Not only was I taken care of behind the scenes but once I hit the stage Ryan was front and center coaching me through it all and helped me make adjustments as needed. Show day is run like well oiled machine and I can say with full confidence that there is no other coach or team out there like Ryan and Team SUF.

Since 2017 I have gone to show after show and watched TEAM SUF in action. I watched in awe not knowing who these people were but wanting to be apart of everything that they were doing. At every show I heard this voice in the audience that became my focus when I was on stage. I saw this guy working with each of the athletes before they went on stage. I saw an incredible set up and witnessed so many amazing athletes having the best time at these shows. I soon came across several athletes on social media that inspired me. As I started paying attention to their posts one after another they mentioned the same person sci_unison_fitness; it was Ryan; he was the common denominator associated with all of these athletes. I decided to begin my research and immediately knew that Ryan needed to be my coach. I was thrilled when he agreed to take me on as an athlete and we immediately got to work.


I just wrapped up my first competition season with Ryan and Team SUF and let me tell you….it was amazing! It was amazing not just because I reached my goals for the season but because I was surrounded by incredible people and supported by one hell of a coach. From day one Ryan has been approachable, responsive, and quick to make necessary changes to help me bring my best to show day. Ryan is a straight shooter and doesn’t sugar coat everything which is one of my favorite things about him. He is honest whether it’s good or bad, and I have the utmost respect for that. Ryan has more drive and passion for this sport and helping his competitors succeed than anyone else I have seen. He puts each athletes health at top priority. If there are issues, he addresses them…immediately. He provides top level knowledge and is always working. He doesn’t sit back on show day and relax, he is non stop, setting up tech, tanning his competitors, making sure everyone is staying on task, always making sure his athletes are feeling good, helping athletes with last minute posing, sitting in the audience to cue his athletes for posing on stage. He brings staff to every show to help facilitate the show day protocols for each athlete. There isn’t another coach that does all that he does. He’s a complete game changer. He’s real. He’s honest, and He’s the BEST! I am so thankful to have Ryan as my coach and to be apart of this incredible team that he has created…TEAM SUF!!

I was introduced to Ryan and Team SUF at the 2015 WNBF Autumn Explosion. I competed against one of his athletes and we placed 2nd and 3rd respectively. Ryan and I had a very brief interaction backstage and I assumed that was it. A few weeks later at the Monster Mash, I was talking to the same competitor backstage when Ryan approached us and remembered me from the previous show. His attention to detail in what he had to say made me realize he was the real deal. As luck would have it, the coach I had been with didn’t bother making the trip to Massachusetts for the show. Backstage I hung out a bit with Team SUF and felt welcomed, as an outsider. I knew I wanted to be part of this team and reached out to Ryan a few weeks after the season ended. From that day on, we’ve had nearly 3 years working together and have been through it all. We’ve dealt with close calls, controversial placings and everything in between, culminating in my WNBF Men’s Physique Pro Card win in 2019.

Ryan’s resume speaks for itself, and I wouldn’t be the competitor I am today without his guidance and support. In an industry full of people only looking out for themselves, Ryan is as real as it gets- he’s always straight forward, brutally honest at times and that’s one of the things I respect most about him. He genuinely cares about those around him and gives 100% in everything he does. I not only consider Ryan my coach, but a good friend as well- a rarity in this line of business. I look forward to seeing what he has planned next for me and the rest of Team SUF.

Joining Ryans team is by far one decision I’ll always be glad I made. With Ryan’s knowledge I was able to transform my body and my overall health. He puts your health first by addressing any concerns or symptoms you may have and following up with full and thorough blood work testing. He also helps you achieve your best overall package by focusing on every little detail with not only your physique but also with your posing, makeup and hair which in turn allows you to feel your most confident on stage.

When I joined Ryan’s team I had been competing for a couple years and it was time to switch gears and find a coach that was a better fit for me. I had seen Ryan back stage for multiple shows and was always impressed with how hard working and organized he was.

Ryan tells it like it is, he’s straight to the point and always gets back to you in a timely manner. He cares about his athletes and fights for what’s right. I can’t wait to see where this season takes me, and I know that I would continue on with Ryan even if I wasn’t competing.

I was less than two years into competing and had already earned my pro card when I was looking for a coach who could take me to the next level.
This is when I realized that the top notch natural competitors I had been following since the beginning of my competition journey all had one thing in common: their coach was Ryan Sullivan, brain of team SUF.

After a phone consultation with him it was a no brainer for me that I’d trust him with my future competition plans. We set a goal of winning one pro show for that year. We accomplished exactly that at first attempt and because the working dynamics with Ryan were so great and I felt in good hands and at my best physical shape we continued on to do 4 more shows, and not only did I place first at 3 of them but I also won a world title which was way beyond what I had in mind for that season.

The effort, support and expertise with Ryan was unmatched and remained at the highest level throughout the entire season.

My favorite part about having joined SUF is that we are a TEAM besides bodybuilding technically being an individual sport. Ryan and Shauna give everything for their clients, when they get together backstage for the competitions it feels like a big family where everybody helps and supports you!

I continued working with Ryan after competition season in order to finally find balance in my off season and avoid going into binge eating cycles. Overall joining team SUF has truly been the single best decision in my fitness journey.

After competing for two years and not feeling I was progressing as an athlete, a friend of mine recommended Ryan and Team SUF. I spoke with Ryan a couple of times before I made the decision to join the team. Little did I know, Ryan was also interviewing me in order to accept me as part of his team.

When I received my first “nuke protocol”, I was nervous. The plan was extremely detailed and different than what I was used to receiving. But as time went on, it was confirmed that this was not a “cookie cutter” plan and the program was designed specifically for me. A program that pushed me to my limits, a program that asked me to go beyond those limits, and a program specifically designed to make me a better athlete.

I respect Ryan’s dedication to Team SUF and the amount of work he does to make the team successful. He is passionate about his team and it shows. And last, Ryan cares about his Team personally and not just professionally.

I have been competing since 2014. I’ve worked with a few coaches throughout those years. Choosing to work with Ryan was the best decision I could have made for me personally. I had been following Ryan for a few years and things that stood out to me was he does not sugar coat anything he tells you exactly how it is even if it’s not what you want to hear. He is incredibly intelligent not just in the sport/science of bodybuilding but in general. All of his athletes look amazing and

His transformation with Leigha still blows my mind. Since working with Ryan I feel healthier and stronger. I love my routine from the diet to my training. Ryan gives you the tools to get to where you want and need to be. As a client all you have to do is trust him ,listen, follow through and put the work in. On the day of the show he does the rest.

My last show with Ryan I won 1st and overall. All I had to do was show up. I put the work in and him and his staff took care of everything hair, makeup, tan, when I ate and drank my water and not to mention the weeks of posing with Shauna (thank the lord for her).

Working and competing with Ryan has made me a better competitor. I have more confidence and way more knowledge on what it takes to commit and fully be prepared to compete and be successful.

I can’t wait to see what we accomplish together in the future.

It wasn’t until I got a recommendation by word-of-mouth that I looked into Ryan and Team SUF. I joined SUF because I wanted to be better. It wasn’t until I started working with Ryan that I realized how much was missing in my programming. The training, nutrition, and posing was all presented in an efficient and professional manner. I could tell right away that Ryan  really knew what he was doing. I was just blown away with the effectiveness of Ryan’s training and learned quickly that if I just followed the plan and worked hard the results would follow. 

 

Upon joining Team SUF, everything changed, including switching to the WNBF. I was hesitant because I didn’t know much about the federation and I was worried that it may not be the look I was going for.  At the time Ryan did not have many bikini athletes but together we worked on the ‘blue-print’ of what we knew a natural bikini athlete could and should be. Our first goal was to get my pro-card which we missed my first season of 2015. After a productive off-season we came back stronger than ever in 2017 with a mission to be “undeniable”. We won a bikini pro-card, my first pro show, and the overall bikini world title! In 2018 we came back for more – winning two more pro shows and retaining the 2018 overall bikini world title. We were also able to earn a pro-card in Figure and Fit-Body. I could not have asked for a better experience. It was a lot of hard work, teamwork and communication. An athlete who is willing to work paired with a coach who has an extreme amount of knowledge and strong attention to detail — almost anything is possible.

 

I finally found a coach who not only could get me to my physique goals, but truly cared about my well-being and my longevity as an athlete. Ryan truly knows how to support his athletes with smart and strategic training, proper nutrition and supplementation backed by blood-work. Ryan is evidence and science based and never falls into what is ‘trending’. The name, “Sci-Unison Fitness” formulated over 12 years ago is still the core of Ryan’s beliefs today. His client satisfaction and impressive achievements as a coach prove his methods work!
