About – Real Anime Training




Your Limits Were Made To Be Broken.
We're Here To Hand You The Hammer.

​Great heroes never work alone.
Son Goku and the Z Warriors. Saitama and Genos. The Elric Brothers. The Fairy Tail Guild.
You and Real Anime Training.

It doesn't matter what chapter of life you're in. You could have come here looking to begin your origin story or for help facing a major boss battle. The fact is that we are here to help you achieve your fitness goals. And we are going to have fun in the process.

Keep in mind that without initiative and dedication on your end, there's not much we can do for you. But for those of you who are tired of living passively and want to own their lives and their bodies, we have the resources you'll need to be successful.


Everyone needs a foundation.

Do you have yours?


You need a foundation able to withstand the trials and damage that you will undoubtedly be forced to weather. Get access to a free mini-course about what your foundation NEEDS to succeed.


My name is Stephen Ross. I'm a certified personal trainer and in 2007, I became the first person to couple what nerds like myself love with physical training.  Whether it was taking inspiration from Goku's ever-present drive to improve or Ippo's journey from shy target to professional boxer, anime has always been a source of inspiration and motivation to train, not just for me, but for people around the world.  If you're up for the challenge, I believe we can make you into a sort of anime hero as well.

You'll be relieved to hear that your first step isn't to throw yourself into a vat of chemicals or have yourself bitten by any radioactive creatures. You don't need to perform human transmutation or travel the world to get the Dragon Balls. The path to becoming like the heroes you look up to is made up of small healthy changes with occasional leaps of faith.  I have prepared countless workout programs and ideas here on the blog. You can easily find workouts based off of whatever show you like by checking out the "Workout Master Post" menu. 

Another encouraging fact is that here, I don't believe in making people do exercises that they particularly hate. Usually, if you don't like a certain exercise, there is at least one alternative that we can employ to get the same result. My goal is to help you unleash your inner hero, not make you hate me.

But here comes the best part. You don't have to do it alone!

We are creating a second side to Real Anime Training. Consider it a long-overdue evolution of what I've been doing here for nearly eleven years.
