Can we make it so your ex regrets leaving every time they see you?
Your workouts are okay, but you're so bored you don’t even want to do them anymore.
Two words: Swimsuit season.
Enough is enough. It's time admit going it alone doesn't work.
You watched your Dad go from working to feeble, you can’t accept that for your retirement
Your doctor just scared the hell out of you and wants you to give me money to fix you.

Emergency! Class Reunion in 3 months. Help!
You can't stay motivated or on task. You need accountability.
transform your reality
People come to me for change. That’s what I do. Personal training with me is where I measure my success in your stories.
When a client who never entered a gym before nails a perfect deadlift at their body weight the first time.
When a client tells me they are getting a promotion at work because they are confident and energized.
When I get pics from my client on vacation on the beach and they’re beaming and showing off they’re new body.
When I’m told, “Hey my grandkids visited this weekend and I kept up with everybody else!”
When I’m staring at someone swimming in their old “fat clothes" from their dramatic weight loss.
When I get to play referee to a teenage son and parent push-up contest challenge and announce "Mom the winner!"
When you win, I win. Your weight loss. Your strength gains. Your flexibility and mobility.
pay as you go...

Is this for me?
Most of us have considered personal training before, but not everyone considering training is a good fit for Tyr Fitness. If you are committed to living a better quality of life then Tyr Fitness. You can make this commitment from any stage of physical fitness (from couch potato to shredded), at any age (from 16-80), or from any level of experience (what's a gym? to gym rat).
Where we're going.
This is not about where you are - it is about where WE are going. And we are going to a better life. One where our knees and backs don't ache every morning, where we don't have to cringe at the thought of attending a class reunion because we put on ten years of fat, where we can spend the day moving our neighbors furniture or chasing around our favorite rugrat, where exercise is challenging but exciting, where we can change our bodies, laugh and celebrate a win every time. We are here to lose the fat. Gain strength. Look better. And have a good time doing it.
more than program design and counting your reps
I am a National Academy of Sport Medicine Certified Personal Trainer. That means that I have been educated and rigorously tested in all of the scientifically backed forms of exercise. It means that what I teach is not a fad or a gimmick. It is not a one-size fits all approach. It means I know what exercises will suit you, your strengths, your limits, your time and your goals. You can rest assured that training with us will be safe and effective.
My commitment to you.
If you are accepted into our training community, you now have a personal trainer as a fitness leader. My role as leader means I know where you are on your fitness journey at ALL times. There is no wandering off, getting lost or giving up. Not without your phone being blown up asking where you've been and how you are doing. It also means you will never have to discover or celebrate your victories alone.
My story starts at the bottom of a crippling depression, with a phone call announcing the unexpected death of my sister. Sitting there, on the floor, morbidly obese, in chronic physical pain, and emotionally overwrought, I realized that I had a choice. I could continue to live out of my depression and cause my niece and nephew to lose yet another important figure in their lives or I could take the path toward a better life. At first, my fitness story had absolutely nothing to do with my own self-worth or ambition. It was about realizing that my routine decisions to slowly decay were costing someone other than me - the people I loved and the people who loved me. This was unacceptable to me. They had lost enough.
I wanted to get up off of that floor and be the man they needed in their life. I wanted to be a combination of Marcus Aurelius, Jean Val Jean and Richard Francis Burton (he's not the actor). But I was none of those things. I was tired and sick (I smoked daily at that point). I ate terribly. I never exercised. I rarely smiled. This was going to take a lot of work.
That day was March 25, 2009.
And let me tell you what, it was A LOT of work. And it was nothing like the Biggest Loser. In the beginning, it was fear, feelings of inadequacy, despair, doubt, and the smallest twinkle of hope. In the middle it was growing confidence (did that woman just check me out!), boredom (I cannot run around this lake one more time) and learning I'd done about a thousand things wrong (what you mean you have to balance muscle groups?!). Now, now it's both background and passion. Background means I just know what it means to take care of myself as part of daily life. I'm 120lbs slimmer, my knee and back pain are managed well, and I am a whole lot closer to the man I wanted to be on that floor. Even so I still drink so much coffee that when I'm cremated I'll probably smell like French Roast. Get a few too many rum and Cokes in me and I'll want to wrestle you on the living room floor then refuse to go to bed (that might be fun for your wife and friends at 22 not so much at 42.) And I bet that Marcus Aurelius, Jean Val Jean and Roger Burton never had their wives chuckle and tell them, "Sometimes you're such a nerd" when they finished a ten minute speech on some book or movie or game.
