Ryan Lee Manista is a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant and has been working in the medical field since 2018. Furthering his skills and his pursuit of optimal health, Ryan became a certified Functional Patterns Human Biomechanics Specialist in 2021. Ryan utilizes the Functional Patterns methodology to help his clients optimize the functional characteristics of the human biological blueprint. Prioritizing the first principles and the natural laws of healthy human movement helps his clients learn how to function pain free, while simultaneously enhancing their athletic performance during each training session.
Accepting the fact that I am not smart enough to know what I do not know. I used to ignorantly perceive that I knew what being healthy was, until I discovered Functional Patterns and started assessing my own gait and posture more deeply. That moment is when I realized I needed to start all over again when it came to making accurate hypotheses on my own health, quality of movement, athleticism, strength and endurance. I've experienced a handful of ego deaths in my life, but this is the one instance that significantly challenged and enhanced my perception in all aspects of living my best functional life going forward.
Ryan's purpose behind his Functional Patterns training is to help himself and his clients become functional and pain free again. Our environment has influenced us to become unhealthy and riddled with biomechanical imbalances that lead to pain and weakened immune systems. Ryan is looking to reverse the degeneration of the human body and help those who are ready to start the process of regeneration. Becoming functional again starts with the acceptance of the ugly truth on the physical and objective levels of reality, so that functional gains without pains can be accomplished the fastest way as possible.
