Aryan is co-owner of Behemoth CrossFit with his brother, Aja Barto. Aryan is the eldest Barto brother and is a born and raised Houston native. Following 5 years of collegiate football, and a brief stint in the Arena2 Football League, Aryan was introduced to CrossFit by Aja. Finding a balance between working long hours behind a desk, and crossfitting during his lunch hour, Aryan is known as the poster child for the "corporate crossfitter". In 2011, he missed a trip to the CrossFit Games by one point, finishing in 4th place. To date, Aryan is CrossFit Level 1 certified and continues to actively pursue his interest in the nutritional realm. Aryan graduated from Tulane University in 2008 with a BS in Finance and a Masters of Accounting. Although still fresh to the CrossFit scene, Aryan is passionate about helping people change their lives through CrossFit.
