Announced in June of this year, Ramp 'n' Rize's new fitness studio is slated to open in Pittsburgh's Lawrenceville Neighborhood in Fall 2018. The scientifically formulated, data-driven workouts will offer Pittsburgh clientele a unique workout that actively conditions the entire body for enhanced cardio, strength and power through core strength, flexibility, speed, endurance, and power.

"Ryan is a true inspiration on and off the field with a ceaseless passion for sports and competition," stated Alba Tull. "I look forward to having his incredible fitness insight and expertise as we launch Ramp 'n' Rize in Pittsburgh."

"A crucial part of getting yourself into shape is your attitude," stated Shazier. "The Ramp 'n' Rize method provides a way to get peak results in short periods of time and is approachable and fun for people of all levels of fitness. It also builds strength with minimum wear and tear on the body- one of the main reasons I will be incorporating these methods into my own training. The goal is to help people rise up to be the best version of themselves." 

Currently a linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Shazier was selected as a first round draft pick in 2014 after playing three years under Head Coach Urban Meyer at Ohio State. Shazier is a rising entrepreneur in his own right, and his participation in Ramp 'n' Rize marks his emerging interest in new businesses and venture opportunities.

The studio plans to offer classes and personal training sessions lead by veteran personal trainer Joy Johnson. Johnson turned her passion for fitness into a career as a Lagree master trainer and celebrity personal trainer, catering to some of Hollywood A-list celebrities, NFL players, and MBL players. Accruing over 20,000 hours of personal training experience, Johnson's unique approach to training can be attributed to education, experience and desire to motivate. Her dynamic and effective training programs have made her one of the most sought-after experts in her field.

Lawrenceville will house the flagship location with additional sites planned to open in the next two years.
