Meet Skyline CrossFit's newest coach Sgt. Tyler Domingue!

USAW Sports Performance Certification

 

How I got into fitness and CrossFit & favorite part of CrossFit:

Tyler started CrossFit in early 2014. “After getting out of the Marine Corps I was looking for something to supplement my gym routines. I was drawn to the camaraderie and competitive aspect of CrossFit but soon realized there was so much more to it than that.”

How did you end up as a CrossFit coach? What path brought you here?:

The Skyline community is what sealed the deal. I am inspired by every single person in our gym, and all for different reasons. Everyone is there for their own reasons and just trying to be a better version of themselves, and for that reason, I wanted to be a part of it.

Why do you want to be a coach?:

I love helping the members see both physical and mental changes and the overall confidence and physical wellness that comes with that. There is nothing greater than seeing members go beyond their perceived limits.

What do you specialize in?:

Tyler specializes in military and law enforcement performance fitness.

What are you passionate about?:

I am passionate about living a great story. I give myself a daily reminder to live with passion and live with heart as though it were my last day.

What is your athletic background? Any notable accomplishments?:

I grew up playing competitive sports. After high school I continued to play intramural sports in college. I joined the United States Marine Corps and served for 8 years until 2015, which always kept me in good shape since it was literally a part of my job.

Most recently I once swam the San Francisco Bay from Alcatraz in 2017.

What's your favorite quote?:

“The same boiling water that softens the potato hardens the egg.” It is not the situation, but our attitude and reaction that determines the outcome. 

Is there anything else you want people to know about you?:

Tyler is an outdoor enthusiast, tres leche expert, world traveler and adrenalin junkie.

CrossFit Games Open 2018 Skyline Athlete of the Week Sarah Jane Moerbe

FB_IMG_1517715609428.jpg

1. Are you participating in the CrossFit Games Open 2018?

-Yes!

 

2. How many times have you participated?

-I have done the open twice before. 

 

3. Why do you participate in the Open?

-I love the connection the open creates with the rest of the world. Simply knowing that people from all backgrounds, abilities, and locations are going through the same workouts together is motivation enough to participate. Also,I have  major FOMO (fear of missing out). 

 

4. What is your favorite part of the Open?   

-When they announce the workout. It’s like opening a Christmas present...I love the surprise. 

 

5.  Would you recommend the Open for everybody? If so why?

-Yes! (Unless an injury prevents you)

I did the open before I could do a pull up. Now I get to do the open at a different level, but if I had never done it before I wouldn’t be able to see the progress.  You can choose what to compete against or the goal you would like to set for yourself, but no matter what it’s just a lot of fun!
