We had the good fortune of connecting with Tyler Hayes and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tyler, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
The idea of AccuFit came about the day I became curious about why in the world do people need personal training? I conducted a 2 month study with my own clients, some new some old, luckily I was able to narrow down the “Why”. Most people get personal training for two major reasons; accountability & motivation. With this newfound knowledge I had to construct a brand that not only fulfilled each member on a surface level, but also on a personal level.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Being an athlete since I was in my youth, fitness was my escape but helping other became my passion. As soon as I graduated from The University of Massachusetts from playing Division 1 football, I immediately began putting my fitness knowledge to the test. Strangers would always ask how did I get my physique, or if they could train with me. So I took it upon myself to further my knowledge in the field of fitness and help others. Not long after my first certification I was contacted to partake in part co-ownership of a gym at a young age in Hanover Massachusetts. Although it was a tough battle learning on the go, and teaching myself business, the knowledge I gained from both fitness & business was priceless. Encountering all types of people made me curious as to how I could service the majority, and change their lives for the better.

AccuFit donates 5% of its monthly Online earnings to aid toward the advancement of healthcare oppurtunities in minority communities. Doctors Without Borders has been one of our main sources to donate to. We thank them for their contribution to humanity!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Dallas has lots of cool attractions! One of my favorite food spots would be Fuel City Tacos! Some of the best tacos I have ever had. Of course I cannot forget about Whataburger, a known staple since I was young. As for places to go and have fun I would suggest something along the lines of Top Golf, The Zoo, The Aquarium, things of that nature.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
This amazing startup couldn’t have happened without the input and direction of my spouse Janae Newman & one of my favorite books Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki.
