TYREK PRATT Elite Trainer
PROFESSIONAL ISSA CERTIFIED FITNESS TRAINER, ISSA EXERCISE THERAPY (PT), ISSA FITNESS NUTRITIONIST
Tyrek, also known as Ty, is the owner of Against All Odds Health & Fitness. He holds a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Behavioral Psychology from Southern New Hampshire University, as well as a PsyD in Behavioral Psychology. He has several certifications, including those from the International Sports Science Association (ISSA), the American Sports & Fitness Association (ASFA), the American University of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Life Coach Practitioner.
Ty specializes in weight loss, nutrition, strength training, exercise therapy, powerlifting, and CrossFit. He began his fitness journey in January 2008 to change people's perceptions of fitness and nutrition. As he delved deeper into his field, he realized his fascination with the psychology of fitness and nutrition.
Ty believes that fitness is an art rather than a science, and that people need a proper plan to achieve their goals. He differentiates himself from others by focusing on developing the neural pathways that enable his clients to have a more positive self-image. Once clients train their brains to think differently, they can change their outlook on fitness and life.
In January 2014, Ty founded Against All Odds Health & Fitness to help people achieve their fitness and life goals through education and motivation. While he emphasizes the mental aspects of fitness, he also supports individuals struggling with depression and anxiety through fitness training and life coaching.
