My name is Ryan Vaccaro and I am the owner, program designer, and head trainer here at Platform Training. I have been involved in fitness my entire life. I am an International Kettlebell Fitness Federation Level 2 instructor, Gracie Survival Tactics instructor, and certified unarmed self-defense instructor. I have been involved in the sport of wrestling since kindergarten, coached at Christian Brothers Academy and Long Branch high schools, and am a former professional Mixed Martial Arts fighter.
I started training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in 2007 and am currently a brown belt under Professor Bill Scott at Shore Academy BJJ. I have had the unique opportunity to train BJJ all over the United States an in Brazil on numerous occasions.
Through my years of training, I have had the opportunity to be trained by some of the best trainers in the world. With my vast knowledge and experience, I have taken a little bit from each of these trainers and put together the program here at Platform that will take you to the next level in your fitness goals.
Along with our group classes, I offer personal training and private lessons in wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, and Self-Defense.
