Born and raised in Independence; Two older brothers; Two kickass parents; One amazing son; this is me, Ryan Waters. They told me starting a gym at 24 would never work. I am now opening my third location and have personally met, trained, and transformed hundreds of clients.

Ryan Waters is the owner of the hottest gym in the KC Metro area, Shredd KC, located in Downtown Lee’s Summit. Opening his first gym at the age of 24, Waters has changed the lives of hundreds of people over the last 12 years and continues to expand his business, his exemplary trainer base and his health and wellness offerings.

Waters is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Performance Enhancement Specialist and Weight Loss Specialist and has a bachelor’s degree in Business Management.  His credentials stand on their own; however, Waters is no stranger to self discipline and putting in the work himself as a former All-American Defensive End and team captain for the Northwest Missouri State Bearcats.  Post college, Waters had his own physical transformation that changed his life and fueled his drive to change the lives of others.

Waters is passionate about educating his clients and believes that is where the real work begins.  Living a healthy lifestyle is so much more than just hitting the gym everyday.  It starts with a person’s mindset and attitude and then carries on throughout the kitchen and learning how to properly fuel your body.  Waters hosts regular educational events and weekly Shredd KC Podcasts to educate his clients in effort to ensure long-term health and overall wellness.  That’s how he defines success.

As Shredd KC continues to grow, Waters has embarked on a gym culture that embodies a sense of community.  As a gym family, Shredd KC gives back to the community and local charities by hosting “work out for a cause” events where the community is invited to work out for “free” with a contribution a certain cause.  Most recently, Shredd KC donated over $2500 to a local mother battling cancer.

Waters grew up in Independence, MO and graduated from Fort Osage High School.  He’s the youngest of three boys and his fan base include both of his parents, with mom being one of Shredd’s most beloved clients and biggest advocates.  Although changing lives is Ryan’s passion, his greatest love and life’s work lies in being a father to his 8 year old son, Ry.

Ryan Waters dreams big and puts his dreams into action and he will yours too.

I’ve been personal training at Shredd for approximately two years, I received my NASM personal training certification in October of 2015 and have been training 2-3 days a week here since. Training at Shredd has been a great experience, it’s a great atmosphere for anyone looking to achieve their goals in a fun, yet challenging environment.
I’m also a firefighter/EMT at Lee’s Summit fire department where I have worked for 11 years. Exercise and fitness have always been a large part of my life going back to high school and college. I completed my degree at Missouri Western State University in 2004 with a degree in Sports Marketing and a minor in business administration. While in college I played 4 years of basketball at the NCAA level. Away from work and the gym I enjoy spending time with my wife Amanda and our 2 daughters, Mya 6 and Palmer 2, they definitely keep me on my toes and keep life interesting. Gratitude.
