Learn about your trainer

Tyler McCarthy, Owner

I developed Titanium Performance in the spring of 2014, in hopes to help educate  clients and the fitness industry in proper strength training through evidence based programming.  I am a Certified Personal Trainer with the NSCA as well as S.P.A.R.T.A Level II High Intensity Training certified.  I went to the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire, graduating with a degree in Kinesiology (Movement Science emphasis) and a minor in business management.  

I have gained extensive experience over the past 4 years in exercise prescription, rehabilitation programming, preventative programming, nutrition consultation as well as sport specific programming. I have worked with individuals of all ages and different needs.  I have worked with elite runners training for the Olympics, professional athletes, first time exercisers, pre-surgery and rehabilitation clients, among others.

What is something you may not know about me?

My goal professionally is to develop a licensure program for personal trainers. This would require each potential trainer to complete a degree with an emphasis in a kinesiology related field as well as pass a board exam that licenses them to practice.
