Every client is on a different phase of life. For some, they might be busy and need to optimize.  Others, may be content with their lot and the two or three sessions a week they currently engage in already makes them feel how they want to feel. For others, they come out the shower, see their reflection and ask “who is that person?” Or they receive a quiet word from their doctor and the quiet word is GET HEALTHY NOW. Or, just curious. Curious to find out what their body-a magical, complex, fascinating constantly changing, living thing, always within us- can do with the application of effort, over a set period of time. For others, they might want to be the fitter, sharper and more agile and stronger in their sport.

TLA owner Jason Kyle get’s most excited by those who want to change, especially within a timeline. Whether it’s pre season or becoming healthy and fit, Jason will use all of his coaching experience to mentor and help direct the client in a direction that is best. Coaching involves developing relationships. Jason is fortunate enough to have developed coaching/training relationships lasting 10+ years. Clients for this length of time include national level athletes, high value business owners-doctors-professors-therapists-firefighters. This interesting list of clientele goes on. Moving forward for the client, ultimately, is based on successful coaching. As well as relationship building, the final coaching requirement is knowledge, instinct for an individuals needs, and infusing training sessions so they become optimal for the individual. This side of coaching is more of a craft and over time becomes established with over 10,000 hours of consistently training multiple body types over the last 20+ years, head coaching for BC Summer Games in 2016 & 2018 and head coach for the MF men’s team in the premiership.  Founder of micro footie and throughout the league duration: leading clinics with over 2,000 volunteer coaches.

When clients go for a better car or higher quality products, they pay extra. TLA and our timeline service is no exception. Health is wealth and wealth is health. Appointments with a trainer, involving knowledge, intuition, time and presence is a high quality coaching service that will create intrinsic and extrinsic results. The extrinsic results are looking better naked – in clothes + seeing muscles that were previously unseeable. The intrinsic rewards are even deeper. Here is just a few: clients will feel better inside, creativity and energy goes up—depression goes down, stress also drops,—balance + coordination improve—the heart pumps more blood, muscles get stronger, joints get tougher-and by applying effort, the client becomes a more resilient and robust individual. If a client does all this on their own they will see all these benefits, albeit over a longer period of time (as it will not be optimal and the client may stop as they have no one to adhere to). Alternatively, when you have a trainer there is appointments to attend and the appointments the client is attending to are maximized for results and inner motivation. Lastly, when someone is waiting for you, you have to go. This last line is worth it’s weight in gold, so I will say again. When someone is waiting for you, you have to go. In a nutshell this having to go is what coaching is. Let me give an example. I coach a quality men’s soccer team combined of 20 teenagers and young adult men. If we suggest on the team’s WhatsApp the upcoming training session is being led by one of the players and both coaches will not be attending: guess how many players would show up. A handful at best. If our studio was left open from 630 am to 830 am for clientele to work out by themselves every day. Again, guess how many clients would regularly show. Maybe 1, at best 2. With that kind of demand  TLA would need to close down after a few months. Why? Regardless of age, to succeed, we need coaches. This has been proven and established throughout time. All those beautiful results mentioned earlier will rarely happen without a coach.

TLA is a coaching service. A coaching service that is always innovating. Adherence to our program is our gold standard. We show up with the background, ideas and plan, you-the client, signed up to train, change, and grow inwardly and outwardly. Philosophically, it might be the moment to ask, how can I be a person who…?

To this we say, let’s go.

There is three coaching levels at TLA perfectly suited for those on a timeline.

Level 1

Purchase a 20 pack with the goal of completing all 20 TLA sessions within a timeline.

Cost:$900+Taxes. As well as 20 sessions, client will receive a one on one consultation with TLA owner to connect and create a plan.

Level 3

Cost: $2000 + Taxes

Train like an Athlete is set up a certain way on purpose.

For a clients success, recovery, and importantly the phase of life they are in.

Let me explain.

The success part is we are a business that excels for our clients (particularly in the morning.) We think mornings are the best time to exercise, offers the greatest chance to eliminate excuses and propels your day in the right direction. We have sessions every single morning. The clients goal is to do something they would do anyway, namely get out of bed. As soon as 9 am hits on weekdays and 10 on weekends we have personal training options.

If you are motivated to get out of bed you will succeed.

The recovery part is the way our training week is laid out so clients can structure a path that works for them where recovery becomes prominent and training becomes accessible for both the physique and mind.

*M/W/F sessions are designed to get you athletic and lean.

*T/Th sessions are designed to either get you strong or build your heart. Empire is the location for our outside sessions where goal is getting your heart in great shape with our anaerobic sessions.

*Weekends combine strength with athleticism with heart rate.

So if a client is wondering what approach to take, I would suggest the following.

Wanna get stronger.

T/Th is your jam.

Wanna get athletic and feel energized.

M/W/F is your go to.

Wanna get anaerobically fit.

T/Th outside would be my choice.

Wanna get a combination of all three

M/T or S/T in studio and Thursday outside would be the direction I would go for.

Don’t wanna commit.

Choose any day dependent on your mood. We love the commitment phobes just as much as we love the dedicated.

Wanna do alone or with friend

No problem. Personal training availability times are on the app. Just book a time that suits.

Wanna maximize results from a single weekly session

Definitely come to a weekend session. Clients will get the triad of athleticism, strength and heart rate.

For all of our train like an athlete clientele, Recovery module 1 starts September 26 and runs until September 30. The idea is to enjoy some muscular stretching, open up, work on the core and give the body a “breather” from lifting so we can smash the next phase with renewed vigour.

The athletic Stephana Arnold will be leading Monday’s sessions. (Knowing the discipline of a ballerina we highly recommend clients arrive on time and bring their own mat.)

Tuesday train like an athlete will be designing a series of body weight circuits as well as boxing & skipping as our form of ESD.

Wednesday Trainer and FST specialist Scott McGinley will be offering a recovery session utilizing the roller, bands and balls.


Thursday will be a repeat on Tuesday a series of  body weight circuits as well as boxing, skipping & moderate running as our form of ESD.

To cap off a brilliant week, on Friday Stephana will be end Recovery 1 with a series of stretches and exercises that will have you prepared for Phase 2.

The London Olympics are over and now every one wants to look and feel like an athlete. A combination of athleticism, lean muscle, great core strength, and mobility.

How did these athletes develop such beautiful physiques?

TLA knows. By training like athletes.

Training like an athlete is a combination of key elements. Training variety, overload, mobility, core & movement, exercise sequence that makes emotional and physical sense, an appreciation for recovery, a body built on positive nutrition, while inside, developing a raw feeling of power.

This is what TLA is all about. Every challenge we tweak our programs. We keep what was successful from previous challenges and continue to tweak based on what works and what doesn’t. The upcoming athlete challenge is no different. We are individualizing even more, creating ten (TLA10) new training modules that will rotate every three weeks, continuing to find ways to make the sessions even more intimate and personal, while adding the success of our previous challenge, the TLA decathlon, into the overall program.

Do you want to Train like an Athlete? If you do, take the TLA Athlete Challenge.

TLA has seen it all. From clients with injury become fit, energetic, and strong to clients unsure about their limitations and becoming athletes. Transform yourself and become an athlete.
