Ronnie Oswald – Owner, Head Coach and Personal Trainer

Passion for People: From day one of his professional career, he has been dedicated to improving the lives of his clients. Prior to his personal training career, he was a child services social worker for the state of Missouri. His desire to help children and their families find a better life was not enough to make a difference in an understaffed, bureaucratic government agency.  To his pregnant wife’s initial dismay, he quit his state job and began a fresh start as a personal trainer. Fitness and health had been a hobby, but as he built his clientele base, he discovered in personal training a fulfilling career as he helped people improve their quality of life.

He has worked with every type of client imaginable, from recovering couch potatoes, to triathletes, to figure competitors. Ronnie has a love for fitness and lives it in his everyday life, always experimenting with his own personal workouts, incorporating his experience to help members reach their goals. He has the unique ability to connect with people of any personality and background to inspire and motivate them to be their best. Upon discovering CrossFit programming in 2009, he found an even more effective and fun way to help people be their best. He loves sports; working with athletes to help improve their sports performance while also helping them develop self discipline and foundational life skills.

Education and Experience:
Ronnie has been a certified personal trainer since early 2007, servicing over 5,000 training sessions while holding various nationally recognized personal training certs like ISSA, NESTA, and AFAA. He is currently Level One CrossFit and CrossFit Weightlifting certified. And hey, he is not some certified meathead, he’s actually a college graduate, with a Bachelors in Sociology from University of Missouri Kansas City.

The Guy Behind Sky’s Limit CrossFit: There’s a lot more to Ronnie than CrossFit and tattoos. He’ll claim his favorite movie is Gladiator, but secretly, it’s Urban Cowboy. He’s a fan of hard rock and country music, mixed martial arts, hunting/archery and big obnoxious trucks. You’d think he’s some kind of tough guy based on all that, but then you haven’t seen him with his two daughters, Skyler and Layla. He’s a strong guy with a big heart, who’s driven by the journey to health, fitness, and happiness, not only for himself, but for his family, friends, and clients.

  1. Hi,

    I was wondering if you guys had a drop-in policy. I have been doing crossfit for three years or so and love to catch work-outs when I am on the road. I was hoping to potentially catch you 7PM tonight or definitely a workout tomorrow.

    Regards,

    • Normally we have people buy a t shirt but we are all out so it would be $15. If you are here multiple days I just have people pay 1 time and then just come in and join us for the week. Hope to see you soon.

  2. Ronnie & Jesse, thanks for the outstanding WOD! I am definitely feeling the aftermath of the ringdips- good pain! We’ll definitely be back for more. Thanks again for the coaching and motivation.

    Semper Fi,
