Tyler is lights out at what he does. He takes high level knowledge and is able to break it down and communicate it to his client for effective results. I’ve both worked out with Tyler and received treatment for various ailments. I would highly recommend reaching out when you’re ready to look and FEEL better.
I was struggling with a stiff back & hips and soreness because of sitting at my desk all day. I reached out to Tyler and he got back to me right away. We connected on zoom and he took me through some movements to diagnose me and then created a customized plan that I can follow to loosen up and help with the pain. He took the time to walk me through them - making sure I performed them correctly and explained the why behind things and answered all of my questions. He even offered tips to avoid pain while working out. It's like having a physical therapist, personal trainer, and health coach wrapped up in one person. Highly recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My Philosophy of Care

When I turned 30, I looked in the mirror and was disgusted with how I looked. Forever I would not look at the scale because the number always scared me, and it would control my mindset too much. It was that day that I decided that I would dedicate myself to learning the best way to lose weight without having to eat chicken, broccoli, and rice 5-7 times a day and workout for an hour plus. On top of that, because I love going out on occasion, I didn't want to feel like I was punishing my mind because I wanted to have a cheeseburger with my friends. From my research and working my ass off, I was able to drop 40 pounds going from 235 to 195, 26% body fat to 8%. These little things I describe in detail, made me realize I could make considerable changes in my life and have long-lasting effects. My mindset is that I am 31 and feel 21; when I'm 40, I want to feel 25 and look 30 and then keep that going for the rest of my life. I want to be that hot dad at the basketball court with my kid one day. And that's what I want for you!

On top of that, sure, everyone wants to shed an extra 5-10 pounds. But the goal isn't just to eat healthy and workout. The goal is to become somebody who cares about their nutrition and understands the consequences of what they put in their bodies. The goal is to become someone that wants to look and feel better!

Fat needs to be considered like an endocrine organ. Fat is not something that just stores as fat droplets or triglycerides, fat also releases hormones. As fat cells get bigger, it releases hormones that stimulate inflammation and ends up driving insulin resistance. Fat is almost like a forgotten organ that we never really think about. Now, how do we get fat? Fat cells can grow two ways: 1. Hypertrophy=the fat cell actually grows in size 2. Hyperplasia=numerous small fat cells. Insulin and fat have two primary roles: 1) Lipogenisis (Creates and stores fat) 2) Adipogensis (Creation of new fat cells) With hypertrophic fat cells, these cells become so big they eventually smother all the components (nucleus, mitochondria) in the cell. So then they struggle to stay alive or active. The cells then have to try to add vascularity. This drives inflammation because more blood has to be pushed to the fatty area. Rememeber that fat cells can only do what insulin tells them. Insulin gets released and knocks on fat's door and says, "Hey we need to use you for energy or keep all the fat inside!" After the fat cell becomes so big, it becomes insulin resistant so no matter how much insulin is released, that fat cell continues to grow in size. Insulin must be elevated for fat to grow. Insulin must be elevated for long periods for fat to grow. Once the fat cell becomes insulin resistant, the fat cell starts to leak its fat (inflammatory proteins or free fatty acids). These two come together and make ceramides. These then gather in our brain, blood vessels, muscles and organs and form a new insulin resistant fat. This is how we get diabetes and how fat cells continue to increase to form obesity. This is why we do everything to keep our insulin at a low level in the program. If the insulin is too high for long periods, we store all the fat. This is why exercising, fasting, walking before/after meals all prevents the insulin from getting too high. Now what's the fix? Is it eat less and move more? Thats what doctors and the government tell us and have told us for the last 50+ years. The issue is, if that were true, our obesity rate wouldn't be almost 50% in America. So this is where the kinds of food were eating become the focus, in my opinion. We need to focus on the type of calories we're eating and not the number of calories we're eating. Control your insulin to control your inflammation to control your fat. Fat is directly related to health, therefore control your insulin and you can control your health!

Sleep is the time that we recover from all the activities from the day. It is when we recharge, burn fat, grow muscle, and overall rebuild our body. The issue is, how many of you sleep well enough to actually recover? When we sleep, our cells adapt, and the mitochondria spark up, produce ATP (energy) through the Krebs cycle. But to do this, we must have sufficient oxygen in our bloodstream. Remember when I discussed the Bohr's effect? We have to have carbon to attach to oxygen and transfer the oxygen to our cells. Once the cell is oxygenated, the cell becomes productive, and we recharge. BUT, what happens if we do not get enough oxygen throughout the day or night? We never recover. We see this with people who have COPD, smoke, obesity (from the weight compressing the lung's inability to expand), and many other metabolic issues. We can go months without eating, weeks without water, days without sleep, and only minutes without oxygen. This is how crucial oxygen and sleep are, especially when paired with each other. Our cells can produce something called Hypoxic Induced Factor 1 or HIF-1. HIF-1 is produced during states of hypoxia. This product senses cellular oxygen levels. HIF-1 controls aging but also promotes cancer. As we age, pseudo hypoxia can take place. We literally starve ourselves of oxygen at night, which is why people who never sleep, shift workers, or people with metabolic diseases look older than others. A powerful way to keep our body young and cancer-free is to clear HIF-1. Some HIF-1 is good, too much will kill us. For instance, we want HIF-1 following a workout to help stimulate recovery and make those significant gains. It also helps with our skin regeneration and keeps a younger profile in general. Too much in the brain will disrupt sleep, promote obesity and cancer, and throw off the heart's pacemaking mechanism within the carotid. So how can we mitigate the amount of HIF-1 in our system is the question. We have to sleep, and we have to sleep well. Here is a laundry list of simple things we can do to increase our deep sleep: 2-3min cold shower before sleep Yoga flow of downward dog, cobra, childs pose, and forward fold with 2-3 breaths in each pose 4-7-8 breathing (inhale 4 sec, hold 7 sec, exhale 8 sec) Blue light blockers 2-3 hours before bed Blackout the bedroom NO LIGHT Put the phone on Do Not Disturb from 10:30-6:00am Unplug wifi router Set house temperature to 68 or lower Mouth tape Minimize phone usage after 8PM Don't sleep with the TV on Eat a banana before bed GABA Microdose melatonin Lions Mane Tea. Another way we can clear HIF-1 while we sleep is to take Niacin and Zinc before bed. Also, while working out, we can stimulate recovery by holding our breath on the last 2 exercises. One set with high lung volume (Breath in and hold) and one with low lung volume (breath out halfway then hold). All of these will help drive down inflammatory cells to promote recovery and health and boost immunity. In Summary, Immune cells keep everything clean and do the body's housekeeping. When tissues need repair, Macrophages show up. If you can control Macrophages, you can control immunity, health, and aging. Macrophages have duality, both good and bad. They can be killers, show up at the onset of injury, physical, pathogenic, and is also where we find HIF-1. They are 1st responders, recruit inflammation, and start the healing process but need them to go away. Macrophages are also healers or the cleanup crew. It will clear infections. With aging, bad macrophages are always present. Too much bad and too few good macrophages: -Can't lose weight -Weak immune system -Cancer Prone -Age faster We have to understand how to control, shift, and re-balance macrophage populations. In doing that, we have to sleep well to reduce the amount of HIF-1 and promote total recovery to burn fat effectively.

Tyler was someone I got to know very well over the course of my first summer and season becoming a pro. I can honestly say I'm not sure I would have the positive start to my season I did without him. Coming in as a hurt underrated rookie with a sprained MCL, Tyler single-handedly saved the beginning of my NBA career. This happened through hours of treatment and research on ways he could get me back on the court as quickly and effectively as possible. One of the things that stuck with me during the process was that he didn't just want to get me back to how I was playing before, he wanted me to come back faster, stronger, better which was not the case with a lot of people I worked with before. Tyler dedicated his time and energy and took pride while accepting the challenge to get me back fast and better than before. Since we were together every day, I saw first hand how dedicated and motivated he is to get better every day and be the best he can be. I learned so much just observing him and his approach toward his craft. I'm grateful to have met Tyler when I did and I'm very thankful for what he has done for me and my career.
Tyler is amazing! So knowledgeable and able to share his knowledge in a way that you understand and trust the process. He takes it one step at a time and doesn’t overwhelm you with too much all at once. His enthusiasm for holistic health is contagious, you’re in great hands with him!
I've worked with Tyler extensively since joining the organization. Tyler has consistently shown his commitment to growing physically and mentally since the day I met him. He has lost over 40 pounds while simultaneously gaining a substantial amount of muscle. I've witnessed him fly through books and even begin his doctorate program. Tyler practices what he preaches and is the furthest from complacent. Being by Tyler's side had inspired me countless times. I'm grateful to be close to him and able to witness him develop.
From my personal experience, Tyler is someone who takes his craft and what we hoes seriously. Throughout the season, while treating athletes for their needs, he was always striving to personally make himself better so that he could make others around him better. Dedication and commitment is what he exemplifies and I saw that first hand. While being our athletic trainer, he also dedicated his time to workout with myself and others to push us to be the best we could be on our journeys of reaching our dream. Every bit of his support was appreciated.
Coach Lesher is phenomenal at what he does and I would highly recommend his guidance if you are trying to take your overall health to the next level. His holistic approach to improving and managing your own health mentally and physically sets him apart from other. As a former Division 1 Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coach i would recommend Coach Lesher and any of his programs to anyone looking to take their health back and be at the top of their game in life. His instructions are complete and easy to follow. He is willing to go the extra mile to help his clients and is always seeking feedback for improvements. His approach to health is a life style modification that anyone can implement and stay on course with even through the worst of days! If you want a program that will deliver solid longterm results and is easy to follow and modify to your life style then Coach Lesher has the plan for you!
In terms of knowing the body, how it works and how to get the body properly functioning, I haven’t been around anyone that knows it better than Tyler. He has done his homework, he has gotten results and won’t feed you none sense. Very highly recommend Tyler!
Tyler was phenomenal to work with. He understands things the human body at such a high level and is able to communicate his knowledge simply and effectively. My athletic performance improved drastically and it was my pleasure getting to work with him.
Tyler has been a great resource for information. With his help and guidance, I’ve dropped 20 pounds in only a short time, and I’m feeling as healthy as I’ve felt in years. He is kind, encouraging, and very responsive to my questions. I can’t thank him enough for helping me get back on track.
When I joined Tyler’s program I was wanting to shed unwanted pounds and get into better shape. Within 6 weeks I had dropped 18 pounds and overall felt better! My sleep was better, acid reflux gone and had more energy. Tyler’s program will motivate you and it absolutely works! Even for a guy in his 50s. I highly recommend Tyler as your go to for health & fitness!
Tyler is great! With his advice, I’ve lost weight, which I expected to do. However, I’m truly amazed at how much energy I have and how much better I feel. I used to have to nap or sleep walk through every afternoon, now I couldn’t nap if I’ve tried. I also follow his exercises and always feel great after, and again the next day. I’ve made so much progress and improvement on so many frontiers of my physical and by way of that, mental health.
