Raised in Peachtree City Georgia, “Professor” Phelps is an implant to the Charleston area. He was first introduced to CrossFit during rehabilitation from injury while playing soccer for Coastal Carolina University in late 2007. Through his own trials and tribulations he realized that strength and conditioning was his passion and soon met with his academic adviser to change his major from business to exercise and sport science. As time went on and his soccer career neared an end, he made the decision to travel to Charleston, SC an attend The Citadel to further his knowledge. Holding both a Bachelor and Masters Degree in Health Exercise and Sport Science, Riley takes pride in furthering the fitness movement in the local community. Coach Phelps is Certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, United States Weightlifting, and CrossFit. His expertise include the Olympic lifts, program design, and sports nutrition.
