Tyler is a mover, lover, eater, reader, writer, burrito enthusiast and international Latin sex symbol. Years spent under the barbell took a toll on his body; overuse injuries, poor movement patterns, and stagnation led him to search deeper. Why was this happening? He decided to look into the science behind the art and fell back in love with the iron – this time with a new perspective and understanding. Tyler has spent time coaching CrossFit, Olympic lifting, and clients one-on-one. His passion for movement has led him down other paths including circus school, yoga and acro yoga, gymnastics strength training and even barre. He currently works as a Rehab Specialist at Seattle’s premier functional rehabilitation clinic. Other interests include behavioral psychology, self improvement – physically, mentally, spiritually, and making tasty foods.
