Ryan Scannell, PO2
My name is Ryan Scannell, and I am a Petty Officer, 2nd Class in the United States Navy. After I graduated college, it was clear that I needed some direction, and upon doing my research, the submarine and nuclear community seemed to be the right fit for me. Two years of my service have been spent as an instructor. Those two years really stuck out to me, because I had a hand in developing and teaching sailors how to do our job, and that is something I can say I'm proud of. Since joining the Navy, I have received the National Defense Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and I am a two time receiver of the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal. Due to multiple potential casualty scenarios, resulting in personnel breathing supplied air, I can tell you that being fit and in optimal shape on a submarine is very important. Additionally, space is minimal, so being a big guy doesn’t make transiting the ship any easier. Since space is limited, we only have a couple of ellipticals and treadmills, as well as plently of hull-mounted supports for pull-ups, etc. Needless to say, supplements have really helped me to keep my figure! Fitness First USA has always come through with really fast shipping, and offer a military discount to anyone who serves. Their focus on honoring Military Members has won my loyalty and I will continue to be a Fitness First USA customer for as long as they are in business! I myself am honored to be a part of their intiatives and will always show my support for a company that supports the military.
