Tyler got started in CrossFit as an instructor at CrossFit APx, located in North Carolina. It was there he realized the true potential of high intensity, constantly varied, functional movements in a group setting. Working with his uncle, a former NFL Defensive End and trainer of original Spider-Man Tobey Maguire, he gained expertise in programming workouts to include all levels of fitness, athleticism, and ability. From there he moved to Seattle, where he was the Head Instructor at Jab CrossFit, starting that program from the ground up and leaving after two and a half years to pursue a Master’s Degree at George Washington University in Exercise Science.
His goal as a CrossFit instructor is to give you a foundation of knowledge to move efficiently, safely, and intelligently. As children we move freely though life, jumping, throwing, sprinting, falling – his desire is to give you back that freedom.

I am a Level 1 CrossFit Instructor and a CrossFit Gymnastics Trainer. Coming to this sport late in life, I am proof that you’re never too old to start your fitness journey and that there are incredible positive mental and physical benefits experiences that CrossFit opens the door to. CrossFit has not only increased my physical fitness level but it has helped my regain my self-confidence and sense of adventure. I started CrossFit as a diversion from a toxic work environment; after a few months of CrossFit, I found myself applying mental techniques that I used to get through WODs to my workday. I decided to become a coach because I wanted to share my enthusiasm for CrossFit, to continue to grow our community while maintaining the standards CrossFit is known for, and to be the best ambassador for this lifestyle as possible. I also want to reach-out to the (growing) market of +50 year olds and show them this is a viable fitness regime that will allow them to have a healthier and more enriched lifestyle.
