"It is truly great to see a positive change in so many people and I take pride in being able to be a part of something so great. This is why Crossfit has not only become a sport but also a passion, lifestyle and a career. It makes everyday a new great adventure."
About Tyler: I started CrossFit about 4 years ago. Just like anyone else who walks in a box. There were people doing some pretty crazy stuff and even though a part of you says what the hell am I doing here, the other part wants to jump right in because it’s like an adult playground. Sure enough after my first session was up, I can’t believe that people do this for fun. But a couple days later I realize was craving more and I was instantly hooked.
CrossFit then became an important part of my life. After my junior hockey career ended, Crossfit became my new sport, I started to get into competing and after about 3 months I competed in my first regionals. It was one of the best experiences I ever had largely due to the incredible atmosphere and the Crossfit community was so humble and supportive. It was a sport like no other. Since then, I have spent the last 4 years competing and striving to become the best I can be with the end goal of making it to the CrossFit Games.
Aside from competing I am also a CrossFit Coach and that is where the true personal satisfaction comes in. As a coach you realize that Crossfit is about the community and its positive lifestyle. You get to see each and everyday people of all levels walk into the box and take part in not just a workout but this great lifestyle. Its rewarding to help and see so many people reach goals and change their life around as they become more confident in themselves. It is truly great to see a positive change in so many people and I take pride in being able to be a part of something so great. This is why Crossfit has not only become a sport but also a passion, lifestyle and a career. It makes everyday a new great adventure.
