Tayler is a certified personal trainer from Portland, OR currently based in Los Angeles. She first got into the fitness industry in college when she became a nationally certified group fitness instructor in 2013, and by 2015 additionally acquired a personal training certification and received her bachelors degree in Exercise Science and Community Health Education. Throughout the past five years, she has had the opportunity to train in a variety of environments with people from all backgrounds and walks of life.
Her personal fitness journey, in combination with those of the clients she works with, has allowed for a perspective that is, though perhaps not unique in reality, extremely under-represented in the mainstream fitness industry today. Her drive to train others didn't grow from any kind of gym obsession or athletic background, but from her own lifelong battle to feel confident in her body.
Over the years, her training style and mindset have shifted to further encompass every individual as a whole. Taking into consideration all factors outside of just diet and exercise, her approach has become much more holistic in nature, placing added emphasis on relationships, work/life balance and Self awareness. It is her mission to offer an alternative mindset surrounding health and fitness that is not restricted by income, innate athleticism or identity politics.
