Staff Spotlight - Ryan Ward

Ryan Ward returns from across the pond for his second summer. A native of Northhampton in England, he’s a student at Edge Hill University studying Sport and Exercise Science. Swimming and cycling are two of Ryan's hobbies. He worked as a life guard and swim instructor back home. 

Ryan has competed in triathlons. He made it to the world championship qualifiers where he finished 140th out of 400 competitors. His other hobbies include rock climbing and paint ball. We're happy to have Ryan back as a swim and biking instructor.
