Bio:

Sydney Stiles was born and raised in Southern California. After discovering that fitness and following an eating plan focused on whole foods were the solution to relieve her fibromyalgia pain, she decided to move to Traverse City, MI in 2010 to enjoy a slower pace of life in a beautiful area filled with year round outdoor activities. She enjoys growing organic vegetables, kayaking, hiking, cycling, swimming, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and playing with her two wonderful Australian Shepherds. 

 

She has been using TRX® Suspension Training® for the past 13 years, and teaching it for 11 years. Sydney is dedicated to providing the highest quality training to her clients, and does so by staying up to date on her certification requirements, and learning new training techniques through a wide variety of continuing education courses and fitness conferences. She is an ACE-certified Personal Trainer with specialties in Weight Management, Orthopedic Fitness and Youth Fitness.  She is also a Certified Inclusive Fitness Trainer with 7+ years of experience working with clients with neurological injuries including stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, Parkinson's disease, and multiple sclerosis.  
Sydney's own challenging medical history has helped her develop an innovative approach to exercise.  She utilizes what she has learned from her own experiences and her out-of-the-box thinking that has helped her clients continue to exercise while overcoming their own medical problems.
