Certified Personal Trainer
Hi! My name is Tyler Thompson and I am excited to be a new personal trainer at the YMCA! I am from Queens, NY and I have had a passion for movement, sports, and exercise since I was young. I would go to the YMCA for summer camp as a kid and loved the activities the Y had to offer.
This passion extended through my childhood and now into adulthood. This fire pushed me to arrive in Maine in 2018 to pursue a degree in Exercise Science and continue my athletic career at Husson University. I competed in football and track during my time at Husson.
I became an American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certified Personal Trainer in the summer of 2022. Then, I earned my Bachelor of Exercise Science from Husson University in the winter of 2022.
I want to help bring joy to people’s lives through movement, encouragement, and creating a safe environment in which to thrive.
My Training Philosophy: Everyone is an athlete! Whether you are shooting for professional sports or just trying to get out of bed, you are an athlete! Progression happens one day at a time. Get the work in and have fun!
