Tyler lives by the idea of promoting an “active and balanced lifestyle.” During his years at the University of Oregon, Tyler became fascinated with body mechanics and exercise science. He worked with students and community members in Oregon as a certified personal trainer as he obtained his Bachelor's in Human Physiology. Tyler now is furthering his pursuit of optimizing human strength and movement by working towards a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree at the University of Southern California. Tyler has been a member of CFTO since 2015 and achieved his CF-L1 certificate in 2018. He is a believer that there is great opportunity for the marriage of the functional movements learned in the gym and the prevention or rehabilitation of injury. Tyler’s emphasis in coaching is to help everyone understand their full physical capabilities in an engaging and safe manner.
