This is the story of Tyler – The Movement Athlete
Tyler is a physical therapist who discovered calisthenics as a student. He’d weight trained for a decade before that. His view of what health and fitness meant changed drastically upon discovering calisthenics
Tyler realized that his take on fitness and health needed to change during his school years. After spending almost a decade lifting weights, he saw calisthenics as a healthier alternative for himself.
“I would rather have mastery over my own body than be able to bench-press X amount of weight.”
He joined The Movement Athlete community because he saw the chance to master skills that aren’t found in the Convict Conditioning book. The Movement Athlete has also offered him structure and brought out a dedication that he didn’t have before.
“I can say that I have been much more consistent with my workouts since joining the program since (a) I paid for it with my hard-earned money and (b) I don’t have to worry about programming since it takes care of that for me.”
He’s dealt with obstacles along the way, and his journey is still an ongoing challenge. But The Movement Athlete has provided him the tools to help him grow and train without being held back by having to worry about issues such as consistency, and planning and programming his workouts. By using a program that automates those things, he’s able to focus completely on the training itself.
A new mindset about fitness and health
A new relationship to food
“Just jump in! Here’s a silly, yet relevant scenario: don’t be that person who hates bananas but has never actually eaten one.”
