Born and raised in the Pittsburgh area, Tyler is a native of Ambridge, PA. His time as an athlete in high school, and later in his collegiate career at Duquesne has given him a unique skillset that he brings to his daily coaching.
He had 20+ years of competitive athletic experience prior to finding CrossFit in 2015. Tyler has been a Head Coach for the last three years, working with and writing programs for thousands of athletes. He is CF-L1 certified, and has completed the Power Athlete Methodology Level One course.
Tyler’s passion for working with athletes of all levels allows him to flow seamlessly from coaching CrossFit classes, to pushing high school and colligate athletes in their pursuit to reach their full potential on and off the field! This passion for helping others achieve their health and fitness goals led Tyler to open Freak’n Fit in October of 2020, with the help of his business partners, Jim and Annie Lefcakis, along with Jim and Kelly McKenzie.
