"I have been to other gyms previously trying to do things on my own. I found this place based on the website and I am so happy I did. These two, Ryan and Amber, challenge me beyond what I think I am capable of...that’s what good professional trainers do. There are some training sessions where I wish I could quit and ask why I even came in today...but that is what the challenge is and I wouldn’t be able to do half the things I can do now two years ago. This gym is what everyone needs, two people who are dedicated to the craft of getting you stronger mentally and physically. And the gym family encourages and supports."
"Ryan is a fantastic trainer. We've been working with him the last few months and we look forward to many more months! Ryan's concern for and coaching in form and function were amongst our requirements for training and he delivers. He also goes above and beyond to provide guidelines for training at home between sessions. Thanks, Ryan!"
"Just wanted to take a minute to say how much I enjoy working out at FCG. All of the trainers truly care about their clients. Always happy to see Brayden and FCG trainers in the morning to start my day with a good workout! Thank you and your team for all you do!"
"Ryan and Amber are knowledgeable and tenacious! I have learned so much and truly feel stronger and more in shape after only one month! Cant wait to continue my fitness journey!"
"When I first started training with Ryan, I had very little experience with lifting and how to train. After our first session, I knew this program was special. We discussed our goals and built a training program around those goals. Ryan was always prepared and made sure my lifting techniques were good to be effective and to avoid injury. He truly cared about my development as an athlete and pushed me hard and smart enough with a positive attitude. Our training definitely got me prepared for the basketball season"
"Love small group personal training at Method Strength & Performance. Ryan's workouts are fantastically tough and effective yet do-able. He's the best trainer around, without a doubt. You get personal attention/correction when necessary and you can feel confident you are getting the proper advice on how to improve yourself and your workout. Highly recommend!"
"With the medical restrictions I have, Ryan is to create a workout plan to accommodate the issue. With the years of knowledge and experience he has, I don’t think may others could accomplish the task and be able to explain it as thoroughly. Top notch trainer."
"I was skeptical of joining a gym due to being so out of shape for so many years. I contacted First Capital and went for a consultation visit and Ryan made me feel comfortable from the start. The personal focus in the small group training is great and I'm quickly getting in the best shape I've been in a long time. You don't feel pressured at all and all the trainers are knowledgeable and helpful motivating you without intimidating you. I feel great and look forward to my workout days. If your thinking about joining a gym but don't know where to start you definitely need to give Ryan and Amber a call at First Capital Gym."
"Ryan is a very skilled and attentive trainer -- and also just a very nice and encouraging person. I've made a great deal of progress during the few months that I've been working with him. I appreciate his attention to detail and the thought that he puts into developing challenging programming. Ryan is dedicated to his clients, and he invests in his own professional education and that of his staff to ensure great coaching. I've been very impressed!"
Jodi & Mike Johnson
"I started with the six week introductory course at First Capital Gym last October. I never dreamed I would love it so much. I knew before the six weeks was up that I wanted to keep going. The focus on my specific progress and their ability to change your routine and challenge you every time you come is what keeps me motivated and not wanting to give up. Ryan and his team strive to maintain the perfect environment. They have taught me so much and I have never been left to figure things out on my own. They really care about your progress and treat you like family."
"After losing a majority of strength and mobility due to injury, Ryan has been a godsend. I have been a lifter all my life, and what I considered to be a knowledgeable person in regards to strength training. Ryan showed me just how little I did know in an instructive, and extremely dedicated manner. Ryan is truly devoted to his clients and constantly places himself ahead of the curve of your typical trainer by applying and incorporating proven techniques, not just the latest fads. I actually laugh to myself when I think about, or see, the "run of the mill" trainer in action. Ryan's commitment leaves his trainees with more knowledge than most "trainers". Ryan Zuver is in an elite class of strength and performance instructors."
"If you're ready for a healthy lifestyle change First Capital Gym is the gym for you. I tried the 6-week program in 2019 and I am still a member. Ryan and Amber created a gym like no other. The trainers are knowledgeable and take the time to know the member and their skill level. They help you perform correctly, encourage you and challenge you. Ryan and Amber created a nonjudgmental and encouraging atmosphere with the small group training sessions. I am so much healthier in many ways since 2019 due to the guidance of FCG."
"Method strength and performance has been a great experience. Small groups are welcoming, and the trainers are knowledgeable and great motivators."
"Ryan was my trainer after having a partial knee replacement. After my initial visit and training I thought I would probably need to start looking for a new career because I felt my mobility was so limited. After training with Ryan for a few months I have regained all of my mobility and more. I am in better shape now then before my surgery. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a pro, you won't be disappointed."
"From the initial consultation, I knew Ryan was different from any other trainer I had worked with previously. Prior to our training, Ryan began with the Functional Movement Screen. This was not something I had had heard of before, nor had any trainer ever used anything like it with me. The screen outlined any limitations and helped to set realistic goals. From there Ryan developed a program to meet MY needs and MY goals. In the past I trained split body parts and was constantly nursing an injured shoulder. Ryan took a total body approach based on performance goals. I am happy to say, I'm hitting goals I never knew I could achieve and feel more comfortable in my own skin then I ever have in the past. With Ryan's help I was able to achieve my goal of obtaining my StrongFirst Kettlebell Instructor Certification. Ryan's professionalism, attention to detail and dedication to his craft are unparalleled to any other trainer in the area. I highly suggest giving him a try!"
"I had gotten to the point where I was not motivated to do anything after the death of my son. I had no energy and was getting depressed every time I looked in the mirror. A friend of mine had recommended this gym to me. I decided to try the six week training program to see if this would be a good fit for me. I was amazed by everything I saw and learned the first six weeks. I feel motivated to workout. I don’t look for excuses to not go. The workouts are great, I feel more energetic and I feel like myself again. I am so happy I made the choice to come here. Thank you Amber and Ryan for all that you do to keep me feeling better about myself. I will recommend this gym to everyone!"
"When I went to Ryan with my fitness goals, he was very thorough, professional, and receptive from the moment I walked in. He took the time to develop a work out plan that was tailored specifically with my fitness goals in mind and presented it to me in a way that I was able to understand. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and would recommend this gym to anyone who is looking for a world class personal trainer!"
"Joining First Capital Gym was the best decision I ever made for myself. Ryan and Amber are great trainers and I feel so lucky to be a part of their gym. I would definitely recommend this gym to everyone I know!!"
"I have a back injury so I’m always a little nervous going to the gym and trying new things. At First Capital Gym, you are in great hands!! The coach is super knowledgeable, experienced and friendly. The gym itself is very clean, and open. You’ll always feel like you are getting 1:1 attention even if other people are there. Highly recommended."
"I'll leave the gym feeling successful and not defeated! If you are looking for support, motivation and the knowledge to reach your fitnessgoals, FCG is the place!
The workouts at first Capital Gym have had a great effect on me. After my workouts, I feel great and the rest of the day is easily done. I now cannot imaging NOT doing this routine."
"I LOVE this gym! It's a wonderful team of trainers and great people who train together- who have become friends. FCG is AWESOME!"

"Ryan's passion for what he does alone is reason enough to consider training with him. He takes the time to do a Functional Movement Screening to make sure you are ready and able to begin a training session, and if you are not ready he takes the time to get you where you need to be! This along with his numerous reputable certifications sets him apart from any trainer in our area. Ryan truly cares about the individual and their needs that he is training. He is hands down the most professional trainer I have ever worked with. Thank you Ryan!"
