  “Tyler started working with our team in 2016 and I can confidently say that our athletes are fueling their bodies better than ever. Ty puts a huge emphasis on education and is eager to teach our team. He’s clearly passionate about what he does and tailors our nutrition program specifically for our athletes both individually and as a team. I can’t thank Ty enough for the work he’s done and continues to do with our group and I highly recommend him for any athlete looking to learn and improve their nutritional habits (on and off the field of play).”

  “If anyone is hoping to improve their overall athletic performance, regardless of age, sex, or sport, they should definitely speak with Tyler. The nutritional guidance Tyler has provided the University of Guelph Women’s Varsity Hockey Team has played a major role in their success. From individualized sports nutrition plans and progress management, Tyler provides these athletes with the initial steps to improve their game. The team highly relies on the nutritional expertise prior to activity, ultimately creating a solid foundation for a long healthy athletic season. Tyler delivers pre, during and post-game meals or snacks to ensure the players are appropriately fueled to perform at high intensity. Sports nutrition is a key component to successful athletic performance, and I strongly believe we are fortunate to have one of the best working with us.”
