|Ryan amazes us with his riding abilities, his community interaction and positive vibe. Ryan has been a true ambassador not only to Norco, but to the sport of cycling, and his new plans will continue to have him do just that. - Pete Stace-Smith, Norco PR Marketing Manager|
The demand for Leech's inspirational Trials-of-Life school presentation remains strong. Through this, Leech strives for integrity by encouraging students to make heartfelt decisions. The dynamism of the multimedia delivery allows his message to resonate and stick with students and teachers alike.
Leech credits much of his longevity as an athletic performer to his embrace of yoga. After nine years of practice, becoming a certified yoga instructor was a natural step and has allowed Leech to share the physical and mental benefits with the cycling world. By combining his prowess as a mountain bike instructor and guide with his cycling specific yoga approach, Leech created the Ride & Reach Program. He has scheduled week long retreats at Boreale Mountain Biking
in Whitehorse YT and has weekend sessions planned in other locations yet to be announced. If you're not able to attend in person, stay tuned for his Yoga for Cyclists DVD to be launched late 2012.
|Ryan is as cool as it gets. His energy, focus and mastery to his craft is contagious. Where Ryan goes, people follow and that includes Lululemon. - Eric Peterson, Lululemon Global Brand Director|
As a public personality and role model, Leech knows that challenges arise and inspiration may be sacrificed due to ever increasing external demands or internal conflicts. Seeing others silently struggle with this life-balance, Leech underwent two years of intense training and apprenticeship to earn his certification as a Professional Integral Coach™. With this certification, Ryan is available as a life coach to stimulate healthy and inspired lifestyles. More information is available on Leech's new website ryanleech.com

|Integral Coaching is a discipline that enables clients to become more aware of their current approach to situations, to see new possibilities and then build sustainable new competencies to achieve outcomes that deeply matter to them.
