Tyler Welch

Hello! I am the co-owner, manager, and Head Trainer at True Fitness. I have been with the True Fitness family since January of 2019. I moved to Flagstaff from Limerick, PA in August of 2018. I came out here looking for new opportunity, and for the chance to pursue my passion for the outdoors, hiking, and trail running.

I have my B.S. in Exercise Science from Penn State, and I am certified as a Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). I have been teaching exercise classes and sport-specific training since 2015. I have been an athlete all of my life, playing soccer and rugby at Penn State, and weight lifting/cross training since 2011.

In my free time, you can probably find me out on trail somewhere with my dog “Chaco”, or cooking something good up in the kitchen!

What you love most about teaching/training: What I love most about training is the challenge to make each workout fun and effective for each person I train. I also love when clients begin to notice improvements or changes as a result of their hard work.

I have been teaching yoga since 2005 to students from ages 10 to 80. I received my 200-hour yoga teacher training at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Massachusetts and my 500-hour yoga teacher training at Inner Vision in Tempe, Arizona.
My classes center around the principle of Ahimsa (non-harming, love and compassion for the body), breath-work, mindfulness, and yogic philosophy. I support my students in building strength, agility, flexibility and peace of mind. My love of learning has led to the following certifications: Public School Teacher, Level II Fascial Stretch Therapist, Life Stretch Instructor, Yoga Trapeze Teacher, Essential Yoga for Low Back Teacher, and I am currently working on my Foundation Training certification.
I am available for small group or individual instruction. I look forward to assisting you in reaching your yoga, health and fitness goals.
