Keynote Speaker

Cowboy Ryan

In his early 30s, Ryan Ehmann woke up in a beat-up camper in the middle of a Texas hay field and thought, “How did I get here?” It wasn’t a deep mystery — after 12 years on the rodeo circuit as a bronco rider, he’d ruined his back, racked up $67,000 in debt, had no job, and no real place to go. It was a true rough patch until a sympathetic friend took pity on Ryan and gave him some Tony Robbins tapes to pass the time. After listening Cowboy Ryan was inspired and determined to get his life back.

Though over a dozen doctors said his spine was shot, he believed that through hard physical training he could get back up on that horse, literally. Even more, he was determined to win a rodeo national championship. So he signed up to become a certified personal trainer with the idea of learning enough about the human body to develop a plan to rebuild himself.

Ehmann strengthened his back, dropped his body fat from 18% to 4.3% percent, rejoined the rodeo world and won a national championship in 2004. Now he is on a mission to help millions of people who struggle with mental strength and motivation to change anything in their lives. Cowboy Ryan’s High Performance Motivation is taking the world by storm because his motto is “Teach People how to Motivate Themselves to Change Anything”.
