Leo Daniel Ryan 

I am a Personal Trainer and Breathing Coach. I am the founder of Innate-Strength.com. I studied Strength & Conditioning, movement, health and breathing since I healed myself of asthma in 2004. 
 
After graduating with a MSc from University College Dublin, I continued to educate myself prolifically throughout my professional career in Ireland and internationally. I attained multiple diplomas and certificates from many elite personal training, physical therapy and breathing schools including Dip. Buteyko Method, Wim Hof Instructor, Oxygen Advantage Master Instructor, Fascial Stretch Therapist, Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Pilates teacher. I am one of the few people in my field that understand breathing, its impacts on the whole human being, its application to life, sports performance and how to train it. 
 
My love and experience for health and physical performance led me to research more than 100 breathing techniques, mentor with coaches to Olympians, UFC Fighters, World Champions and I undertook several internships with the world renowned Dr. Eric Serrano. I have coached hundreds of clients during my career so far. Their profiles range from Olympians to recreational sports people and those who haven't trained in a decade. I love nothing more than coaching a new client to breathe free, be strong and live their greatest life, whether that is as a partner, a career-focused person, an adventurer or a sports person. 
 
Leo Daniel is one of the best coaches I have come across in twelve years of the fitness industry. He has a great passion and drive for fitness.

More About Leo Daniel 

Leo Ryan Black Belt in Judo
Up to 2019 I spent a lot of his time coaching one-to-one in a personal training environment. I was learning, experimenting and testing different training methodologies on my clients and I. I began my sporting career playing Gaelic football. Despite illness, I won underage championships and became a club senior member with St. Sylvesters in Dublin. After healing my body from asthma I took up judo and became a Black Belt, I ran marathons without any specific training, I gained more than 52 lbs of muscle and I even climbed a mountain (in -10 degrees celcius!) with nothing but a pair of shorts and boots. My clients have healed cardiovascular disease, asthma and anxiety. They’ve reduced symptoms of depression, panic, colitis and rheumatoid arthiritis. Some have gained weight, purposely and others have intentionally lost weight. The best thing is, they’ve also gone onto to return to their passions in life, like tennis, running, gaelic games and elite level sport.

Marcus Quinn 

Bio 

Marcus is currently training to become a qualified S&C coach in Setanta College. His sporting background lies in hurling and he currently plays with his local club in the Galway Senior Hurling Championship. Prior to commencing his studies in Setanta, he studied Product Design & Technology at the University of Limerick and began his career as a product development engineer in the medical devices industry. 
 
Marcus' interests in the various aspects of performance training and health practices have been steadily growing in the last few years. Since first reading Oxygen Advantage, his curiosity about training the breath never went away and led him to Innate Strength where he participated in the 'Project Breathe' programme. Here, he was exposed to the Buteyko Method, the Wim Hof Method, and many other practices. Restoring his breath brought profound benefits to his health and performance and honed his interest in the mind-body connection. Ultimately, the breath training programme showed him where his true interests lay, and he decided to leave his job as an engineer and pursue a career in coaching. 
 
Marcus is currently involved in running breath work workshops with Leo and is involved in the day-to-day running of the business. He's also gaining some valuable experience on the inter-county hurling scene while he completes his studies. Once qualified, Marcus looks forward to taking on his own clients and moving to the next level of his Innate Strength journey.

BIO 

Firstly, I want to share how excited I am to be joining the ranks at innate strength. 
 
I feel extremely inspired joining a team who are passionate towards helping people in fitness and wellbeing. It was clear to me Leo and Marcus have practiced and proved many different training methodologies on themselves and clients over the years and now they have gained such a vast knowledge on building strength training, improving performance, injuries, Restoring the Breath and helping clients in recovery from symptoms such as anxiety, asthma and cardiovascular diseases to name a few. 
 
What I can bring to the innate strength team? Over the years I have also delved into many different training methods to improve my own general well-being, my confidence and just keeping up with my fitness goals but most importantly my mental health. It took a while to find my way but I didn’t give up the search. I know movement is extremely important for the body and as the awl saying goes “if Ya don’t move it, you will lose it” This does resonate with me. As a young child, teenager, young adult and now not that old but wiser adult I was always involved in some form of physical activity and for me I just had to keep moving and it was not till my early 30s I discovered I have ADHD. Which makes complete sense to me now as to why I had so much energy and racing thoughts. I needed to find ways to stay focused and calmer so intuitively I enjoyed taking part in physical activities to a great degree, I will name a few in order as my first introduction to sports GAA, Football, Quazar (yep laser tag remember them? Ruining bout for 3 hours in the dark is harder than it sounds) amateur Boxing, Rugby league, swimming, running, now to this very day Brazilian Jiu – Jitsu. I began training and competing in Jiu – Jitsu from February 2016. I am a purple belt under professor & 1st degree black belt Damien Dowling at JSBJJ Drogheda. My own journey in Jiu-Jitsu so far has been quite unique. I am still improving everyday as

as a person, a father and a junior jiu jitsu coach. It was exactly that too which connected me to the breath and cold exposure also. I began to research the benefits of breathing and cold exposure for performance and recovery. Jiu – Jitsu can be very demanding physically on the body and to not get injuries or to be unscathed is extremely rare. I wanted to find a holistic approach to aid my recovery and performance, I wanted to learn more about the breath and cold exposure so I stumbled across one of Leos workshops online (it was the freezbury- cold plunge and breath workshop at the beach hut in cloggerhead back in February 2022) what I gained and experienced from the workshop was a profound connection with my own mind and body, I felt calm, laser focused, reenergised and liberated. That same day I went on and competed in a jiu jitsu tournament and found I was in a calm flow state of mind which helped me perform at another level. Since then, I understood working on my breath is just as important as movement and exercise, I now know I need to stay on this journey and learn so much more. 
This has now led me to right here right now... the Innate – strength team exciting times! 
 
With my understanding working through trauma, working on mental health, my awareness of the mind and body during exercise. I feel I can tap into this innately with breathwork and when I do it improves my day, my performance in training, I stay more focused with my workouts, preparing for competing to reduce pre comp anxiety, coaching jiu jitsu and it has also helped me manage my ADD/ADHD being much less distracted throughout the day. 
 
I have now enlisted in the Oxygen Advantage instructor course to expand my knowledge on the breath and become a certified instructor. I really enjoy assisting Leo with breath and cold plunge workshops to improve my experience with those curious souls and lovely groups who are taking part, it gives me a first-hand view on the impact cold exposure has and the power of the breath with both of their intrinsic natures always ready to be explored. 
I will be honest here and express I cannot wait to learn more, share my experience helping others on the journey to the Breath, Breathwork training to restore health, vitality and to help people perform to their best be it sports, competing, training or just to improve all-round day to day life. Who knows where it will lead. One thing I do know is it will be a worthwhile journey. 
 
Stay fit & breathe well and keep moving!
