Personal Trainer - Coach
CPPS, NCEP, FRCms
Born and raised in Santa Clara, California, Tyler has always been active in fitness and sport. His first love was baseball, and he played competitively into the collegiate level until an abrupt injury halted his ability to continue to play. At this time, he was introduced to the world of rehabilitation and helping individuals “get better.” Tyler turned his focus and studies to Kinesiology at San Jose State University aiming for a pathway to a career in Physical Therapy. As Tyler dug deeper into academics and the university experience, he realized something was missing: he wanted to help people “get better” BEFORE they got injured…not after.
Tyler turned his focus to becoming a Personal Trainer/Coach in 2015. He immersed himself in the fitness industry specifically with regard to the practical application and business administration of this profession. Seeking knowledge and guidance from top industry talent, Tyler has earned credentials from the National College of Exercise Professionals (NCEP Personal Training) and Functional Range Conditioning (FRC Movement Specialist). His pursuit for continued education never stops, and he is currently sitting for advanced certifications in sports performance training and nutrition coaching.
Tyler strongly believes in educating clients with the WHY behind the fitness programming he provides and getting his clients to connect with how correct movement patterns should feel. His favorite thing to experience as a coach is to have a client’s pain go away while progressively increasing strength and obtaining results the client needs and wants. Tyler’s mantra to clients: trust and be patient in the process.
In his spare time, Tyler loves to be active (e.g. attend sporting events, hike, work out) and hang out with his Rottweiler, Mila. When he’s not doing those things you’ll likely find him enjoying his new love for cooking, listening to podcasts or attending concerts for all genres of music. Topics that get Tyler fired-up and into deep conversation: ALL things history and nostalgia, or lost techniques in lifting weights!
