I have been working with Tyler for 5 years, and since then, my performance, strength, and overall health have all significantly improved.
In my first 4 months working with Tyler, I dropped 10 pounds when already 16% body fat, and continued to get stronger and faster in all 3 of the triathlon disciplines of swim, bike and run. I was completely surprised of course, because I could not get my head out of thinking that lifting weights meant bulking up. Tyler’s philosophy on weight training is all about strength and performance.
After our first 4 months working together, I set my own personal record in the 140.6 mile Ironman distance triathlon by 38 minutes going from 11:38 to 11:00 hours. Swim improved by 10 minutes, bike by 8 minutes, and run by 20 minutes. I was incredibly surprised by this since the only thing I changed in my approach to the race was adding Titanium Performance strength program. After 4 years trying to get out of the 11:38-11:55 window, I finally did it with Titanium Performance.
Tyler also tailored to my needs. We were able to train through 2 serious bike accidents just 5 weeks apart, one where I broke 3 ribs and another where I was hit by a car head-on. We also customized a program where I could incorporate some anaerobic conditioning with the strength training to exhaust my muscles, simulating the power and endurance marriage required for an Ironman distance triathlon.
Tyler is very in tuned with his clients bodies and capabilities. He is able to sense my needs with every movement, knowing exactly how much weight, how many reps, how hard to push or not to push during any given week. This is an extremely important skill to me in a trainer and coach. We don’t always know or have the perception of what we are capable of, and Tyler can help interpret that when our minds aren’t clear enough to know.
