Why do clients choose Tyler?

For Tyler, training is so much more than a job. He is personally invested in and committed to everyone who walks through the door.

If you have a crazy schedule he always works to accommodate you, ensuring that you are always getting the work in.

Do you need extra workouts or information during times when you are not at training? Don’t worry, Tyler has you covered.

This isn’t just lip service. Just listen to what his client Nicole Halper has to say about why she chose Tyler and continues to train with him.

“Minutes after I met Tyler during my evaluation workout I new we would make a great team. He was instantly able to assess not only my fitness levels but also my internal and external motivators. He knows when to push me, when to make me take a break and how to help me overcome the internal roadblocks I create for myself. When I reach a milestone in my journey, big or small, Tyler is always there to celebrate that with me. I would recommend him to anyone who is truly committed to changing their lives for the better.” -Nicole Halper

“I began training with Tyler in April of 2015 when I started I was a complete novice. In the past year I have been able to build up my strength, endurance and self confidence. This past May I walked the Mini Marathon, I would have never been able to do this before training with Tyler. If you are serious about wanting to achieve a goal of weight loss. I would HIGHLY recommend Tyler. He is always on time and prepared to give me his best effort as my trainer. There are certainly days that I do not want to work hard. On these days Tyler encourages me to give what I have and helps push me to the next level. In all if you are on the edge fence of starting a fitness program give Tyler a try.”

“First things first…. I have never worked out with a trainer and was frankly afraid to even try. No way would my overweight, out of shape, middle aged body be able to keep up!! I hadn’t done much besides yoga since I dislocated my elbow a few years ago and not a heck of a lot in general over the last 10+ years to be honest. My husband convinced me to give it a try and we met with Tyler the last week of July 2016 for an assessment. I was still worried I would not be able to do the workouts but Tyler is a positive person and assured me I could do it.

We started working out at IPA on August 2nd (two days a week) and I started noticing a difference in my energy levels and abilities within the first few weeks. I started taking the stairs to meetings, walking at lunch, and riding my bike on the weekends. I did my first bike commute to work (10.5 miles one way) 6 weeks after I started working out. I have recently added mountain biking to my weekend activities. Something I was previously afraid to do because I am a bit of a klutz and my sense of balance was out of whack. I noticed working out at IPA is helping with that also. We recently added a third workout with Tyler to our week. We are always doing something different during the workouts so it is never boring. Both my husband and I are seeing positive results.

Do I have bad days? YES, who doesn’t? I go in to IPA and do my best anyway (regardless of what it might look like). Tyler has a great sense of humor and is good natured about my griping and groaning on my bad days. With his help I expect to reach my goal weight and increase my stamina and muscle power so my hubby and I can do bicycle touring. I also plan to get my core strong enough to try stand up paddle boarding next time we go to Hawaii. Another activity I thought was out of my reach. I no longer think anything is out of my of reach if I try hard enough. Thanks Tyler and Indy Performance Authority!”
