In an effort to generate new clientele, Ryan began sponsoring local professional/amateur mixed martial arts shows. Because of the level of popularity and the hundreds of thousands of fans and enthusiasts the sport was attracting at each venue, it was deemed a perfect marketing ground for potential prospects. However, the company was overwhelmed with positive feedback and intrigued the general population, offering apparel, accessories and supplements.
Ryan became highly developed in 2011 when he launched his collection of casual/sport apparel and accessories brand, “Trained In Detroit”. among the sports entertainment industry.

Brad Sharpe is a Marine Corps and Iraqi War veteran who grew up in Metro Detroit. After years of travelling the world and country, he has returned to the Detroit area to raise his daughter and continue his career in the health and fitness industry.
While serving Brad started competing in weight lifting competitions on base, which lead to his need to push himself and challenge what people are capable of doing with their bodies. This is where he began training other Marines who needed to either gain strength or lose weight in order to maintain the standards of America’s elite fighting force.
Currently, in the process of finishing a degree in Exercise Science, Brad has taken his experiences in the Marine Corps and adapted them to a style of training that will push any athlete or beginner to their limits. Combining high-intensity circuit training, resistance training, kickboxing, and many other techniques Brad will get the best results out of any client.
