Ryan & Rachel CageOwners
Ryan and Rachel Cage, owners of Cryotherapy Advantage, are both local to NOVA. Ryan had a few careers before deciding to put his love of fitness and health into a career and opened CrossFit PR Star in 2012. Rachel, using her business and accounting experience, helped make this dream a reality. After being in the world of fitness, they realized how undervalued recovery was with many people. Ryan began searching to find his own recovery methods when he stumbled upon whole body cryotherapy. After a lot of research and a little convincing of Rachel, they decided to open Cryotherapy Advantage to become THE place for athletic recovery. Being able to provide a relaxing and state of art facility where people can take their wellness and recovery into their own hands has been a dream come true. In their free time, they enjoy spending time with their three children, traveling, and hiking.
Hayley PetersRecovery & Therapy Specialist
Hayley, our Recovery and Therapy Specialist, is a Pittsburgh native who has fallen in love with the hustle and bustle of NOVA. A special education teacher (and slight couch potato) in her past life, she began her journey to fitness, health, and wellness after joining Crossfit PR Star 4 years ago. Despite her obvious lack of coordination upon touching a barbell for the first time, Hayley instantly fell in love with the sport of Olympic Weightlifting and can be seen at local and national level meets. When she isn’t training or thinking/talking about food, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their puppy, Matilda.
