Join­ing Fit­strong was the turning point for Tyson. The change in train­ing and in­ten­sity both con­trib­uted to his trans­for­ma­tion – but we can’t ig­nore these fac­tors:

Men­tal game

Tyson is highly mo­ti­vated; once he has a goal or some­thing to achieve, he stops at noth­ing to reach it – my best type of client! It makes my job easy. He’s self-driven; “no” and “too tired” aren’t in his vo­cab­u­lary.

Goals

Tyson came to FS be­cause he wanted to take his train­ing to the next level. Tak­ing the ap­proach of be­ing fit and strong at the same time opened up the world of CrossFit and ob­sta­cle-course rac­ing for him. It gave him the abil­ity to com­pete with the best in the coun­try and re­ally give them a run for their money.

Knowl­edge is power!

If you want to be (and com­pete with) the best, you need to know ev­ery­thing there is to know about this style of train­ing. Tyson pays close at­ten­tion to move­ment stan­dards and form, im­prov­ing by the day. He in­vests time and en­ergy in train­ing, and sets small goals for him­self daily. This is im­per­a­tive to reach­ing a big­ger long-term goal.

Com­mit­ted and ded­i­cated in all forms

Like I said: driven and self-dis­ci­plined. Eat­ing and train­ing be­come a habit that turns into a way of life that cre­ates a life­style. He’s now “ad­dicted” to the en­dor­phin kick he gets from train­ing, and can’t wait to come back for more. That’s how train­ing and liv­ing a healthy life­style should be for all of us.

Dis­ci­pline!

See above – tak­ing it easy is not an op­tion for Tyson! He doesn’t want to waste my time or his own. He’s a ma­chine.
