Eventually, Tyler attended college for nutrition and dietetics which drastically improved his skills as a future nutritionist. With a solid educational background and nearly a decade of personal experience with weight cuts, Tyler has become an expert in his field.

Tyler’s experience extends beyond the MMA community into the CrossFit and general health field. Tyler owned a CrossFit gym for several years which opened up his clientele to people with a desire to change their bodies and improve their quality of life.
