Tyler has always been involved in sports. He began at a very young age learning to ski shortly after being able to walk. He also played soccer and baseball for the first few years of his athletic life. In middle school, he began competing in both football and track and field, as well as supplementary weight lifting. In high school, he continued with the same sports where he became the field events captain of the track team his last two years and was part of a team of seniors that took a losing football team and brought it back to relevance with two winning seasons and playoff bids, just down south in Colorado Springs.

He began CrossFit about seven years ago when his mom first told him about the fitness phenomenon. At the time, he was transitioning into his first year of college at the University of Colorado and trying to train for athletics at the collegiate level. His goal originally was to walk on to the football team but ended up pursuing rugby. He found that CrossFit was the mechanism that allowed him to reach the strength and fitness demands of his new sport. While in college, he continued using CrossFit to give himself a competitive edge in rugby without detracting from his studies in Integrative Physiology and Business Management. He has taken courses in nutrition in clinical settings and for health and performance, biomechanics, exercise physiology and two courses in motor learning. Fitness has always been his passion and is always trying to share this zeal for health, life, and wellness with everyone.

Tell Day, Coach

Certifications:
CrossFit Level 1
USAW Level 1

Tell’s athletic background is steeped in military service. He spent four years in the Marine Corps Infantry and was part of a Scout Sniper Platoon, where he served as team leader on two deployments. During that time, he saw how well some of his peers were handling their stressful positions and wanted to know their secret. They introduced him to CrossFit and after doing the workouts, he immediately felt a difference.

CrossFit training strengthened both his mind and body. It was a winning combination that would motivate him to become a coach. These days, he specializes in gymnastics and believes CrossFit can benefit anyone, no matter their background.
