About Doc Lyss

“Honest education is the key to helping others find success in their health.”

Hey there!

I’m Doc Lyss

I’m a multi-passionate big scary goal chaser. I lift, run, learn, teach, coach, and educate. Everything I do is rooted in a fascination with the incredible potential of the human body, which I fell in love with at an early age.

I am on a mission to help people face their fears, chase big goals, and finally learn to celebrate what their bodies are capable of. With no nonsense, straight forward, simple but effective fitness training.
