Tyler Brock shatters transformation record with 79% fat loss

October 8, 2022

Over the last 25 years, I’ve had the privilege to train thousands of people, helping them get in shape and transform their bodies. These experiences have left me with a unique perspective of what the human body is capable of accomplishing in a three-month time frame. However, Tyler Brock’s recent body transformation has changed my expectations and raised the bar for all future clients.

Tyler joined our programs as a participant of this year’s annual Schell Brothers Biggest Loser contest. Chris Schell and I developed this contest to give Schell Brothers employees a chance to compete against each other for bragging rights and prizes while taking control of their physical and mental health, and getting in great shape in the process. 

Over the years, this contest has grown dramatically, as hundreds of current and past employees have participated in this amazing event. As one would expect, results get better with each passing year. However, Tyler crushed expectations with a record-setting performance. 

“I got quarantine body during COVID and really wasn’t happy with where I was health-wise. I’m a fairly new dad and wanted to make sure I had the energy to play with my kids,” said Tyler. So last February, he joined the contest and signed up for our 12-week body transformation to guide him through the process. 

In addition, this year Schell Brothers expanded the contest to offer spouses a chance to compete, so as a bonus, Tyler’s wife Angel joined the program as well. This quickly made it a lifestyle within their household. The results immediately began to show, but for Tyler, they were not just weight loss. “I’ve always had bad knee pain due to arthritis, but after finishing this program, not only was I in the best shape of my life at almost 40 years old, but the knee pain was barely noticeable,” he said. The most incredible statistic of his transformation was the amount of fat he lost in just 12 weeks.

At the end of the contest, Tyler lost an amazing 79% of his starting body fat. He won the contest, besting 122 other participants in three different states. To put that in perspective, he started out at 22% and dropped down to a shredded 4.6% body fat, which is lower than most elite pro athletes. This is truly an amazing accomplishment, considering it’s the largest percentage loss of body fat we have ever seen in a three-month period and a new Antonio’s Training record. 

When asked what advice Tyler would offer to anyone who is considered making a lifestyle change, he said, “You have to want to change. You can’t just coast through and think some miracle diet is going to come save you. Getting in shape is a process. It’s hard work, but the effort is worth it in the end when you earn the results.”

It’s also worth mentioning that Tyler’s wife Angel also had an incredible transformation, placing third overall in the spouse division. In addition, both Tyler and Angel took several different trips during this transformation, but it was never an excuse to go off the diet or miss workouts. Instead, they meal prepped and stayed with the plan, proving you get what you put into your fitness regimen. With commitment and sacrifice, you can get great results. Congratulations to both Tyler and Angel on incredible transformations.
