I believe in fitness from the inside out. That being said, I bring a holistic approach to training, meaning that I focus on the whole individual rather than just the individual’s physical capabilities. How fit can you truly be if you are mentally and emotionally stressed out from work, relationships, financial stressors etc.? Have you ever noticed how much harder it is to workout after eating junk food or getting a poor night of sleep? All of the aforementioned stressors need to be addressed if you want to be the most vibrant and well-rounded individual you can be, let alone see results in the gym. Training in the gym will add years to your life. Leading a life with a healthy balance of work and play will add life to your years. My training philosophy addresses both pieces of the puzzle—the fitness piece, and the lifestyle piece. My mantra…. Stay humble. Stay hungry. Stay Happy. Looking forward to meeting you!
Ever since I was a little boy, exercise and fitness have always been a huge part of my life due to my love for playing football and baseball. These sports have greatly influence my drive to constantly seek out ways to perform better and excel in games and practices. This passion for fine tuning your body to outperform the other team fueled my decision to go to Eastern Washington University to obtain a degree in Exercises Science. Now, as a personal trainer, I still enjoy fitness and I love assisting others in achieving success in their fitness endeavors. Understandably, everyone is different, not just with strengths, weaknesses or even bodies, but with their end goals. As my client, I can promise you that I will work with you to create a plan that we both agree is safe, effective and and will fit your needs like a well tailored suit. When you rely on me I will be your motivator, your friend, and I’m sure at times when you are working your butt off, your verbal punching bag, but that comes with being your trainer. Working out should be fun! And I will do my absolute best to ensure that each session we have together will be.
I am a strong believer that fitness is a journey, not a destination. I instill in my clients the appreciation for the process of changing ones life in a healthy direction. The small victories are just as important as the big one. I believe fitness goes way beyond making the body strong. Fitness promotes confidence in the individual. That confidence stems from the strength of character and discipline in takes to make healthy changes, and more importantly, to maintain them. Fitness teaches people to step outside of their comfort zone. Change is uncomfortable. Embracing it encourages a newfound bravery to fight through the challenging experiences we each face throughout our lives. I cannot promise the fitness journey will be an easy one, or that I will drag you by the hand to get you there. However, take those first few steps outside of your comfort zone, and side-by-side I will help you along your journey. NSCA CPT OKC Certified Kettlebell Instructor A.A.S.

Execute, Educate, Empower are the three essential elements of training with me, which will get you the results you desire. I will put my time and expertise into listening to your history and goals to create your personal roadmap. Since life is constantly changing, our conversation will remain open and your roadmap may change from time to time. I will require you to execute your personal plan in the gym and at home. I will educate you about proper exercise and lifestyle management empowering you to become the best version of you possible. There is no easy fix, no magic pill, only consistency and commitment to your goals. I will ask you to step out of your box, learn how to be comfortable being uncomfortable one step at a time. With me, you will earn the results you deserve, and you won’t spend one day being sorry. For over 20 years my life has revolved around improving people’s lives and becoming the best trainer and fitness instructor I could be in order to best serve my clients. I’ve honed my skill, continued to study the science, and practiced what I preached every day, which resulted in the privilege of becoming a full-time firefighter for six years in Madison, WI. I would still be there today if I wouldn’t have met my husband in 2007 and decided he was worth following to Spokane in 2010. Although my goals have changed depending on what life throws at me, through it all, the one constant that has kept me grounded is my commitment to living healthy and fit. Make the choice now to let it be the constant in your life.

Hello, my name is Tyler Giffing! Exercise is everything to me. At a young age, I took on the role as my Mom’s personal Cheerleader. I encouraged her and motivated her on as she completed various races (Half-Marathons, Marathons, and 5X IronWOMAN). I love cheering for my Mom because she always has a smile on her face, and with all the hooting and hollering, she would push a lil’ harder. Always made me feel like I had a little part to do with that. With my passion for fitness, I attended Arizona State University and obtained my Exercise Science degree. Shortly after, I earned my American College of Sports Medicine certificate and pursued Personal Training. I love coaching and have an immense desire to help people. I want to help find the very best YOU, challenge you to overcome barriers, and lead you to be your best physical SELF. My motto: DREAM…ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! I’m here to help, and I would love to help you become the best you.
