Tyler’s #MYFIT Story

SVPT is proud to present #MYFIT – a celebration of our clients who live a fit and balanced lifestyle.

#MYFIT is not about a 6 pack or a bikini body, it’s about showing that fitness comes in ALL SHAPES AND SIZES, and truly is training to live a more full life. It’s not about young and skinny, it’s about showing that fitness can be a part of ANYONE’S life, regardless of age.

#MYFIT celebrates clients who challenge themselves physically and mentally to move better, perform better and live better. #thesvptway

We are grateful to Tyler for sharing his #MYFIT story:

“For as long as I can remember I was a perfectionist. Up until last year I always thought this was a good thing. The problem however is that there isn’t enough time in a day to strive for perfection in everything. Perfectionists are the worst procrastinators because of the all or nothing approach we take in life. For years I went all out in some areas of my life and totally neglected others. Unfortunately, my fitness was one of the areas I neglected.

In September 2018 I started walking 10,000 steps daily and then upped my game in November 2018 by joining SVPT. I was determined to achieve balance in my life. Since then, I’ve experienced so many positive changes! I’ve lost a total of 95 pounds. I’m the strongest and leanest I’ve been since my early 20s. I’ve fully overcome knee and shoulder injuries I had for years. I’m able to enjoy nature and have recently hiked 25km no problem whereas this time last year two flights of stairs would wind me. My doctor calls me a success story because my blood work and blood pressure are now at optimal levels. I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time and I’m going to live longer.

#MYFIT is progression. It’s turning my dreams into goals, goals into realities, then dreaming bigger. Lower numbers on a scale are great but it’s more than that… It’s lifting heavier, feeling better, having more energy, having more mobility, and moving faster.

#MYFIT is balance. It’s ensuring I focus on my fitness but don’t overdo it at the detriment of other areas in my life. I finally understood the interconnection between fitness, nutrition, relationships, career, and mental health & wellness; you can’t put all your eggs in one of these baskets!

#MYFIT is community. The SVPT community is positive, encouraging, and non-judgmental. I’ve only ever had positive experiences with Ryan, Shara, the rest of the team, and SVPT’s clients. This positivity is contagious and I find that I spread it wherever I go these days.

#MYFIT is the end game. There is no turning back to a sedentary, stress-filled lifestyle for me. Been there, done that. No thanks! I’ve seen the rewards a long-term commitment to my fitness provides and I’m not willing to give these up.

Thank you to Ryan, Shara, and the rest of SVPT for your help and support in shaping #MYFIT!”
