"SYX" - Our Founder

Eric Pyles, MEd, CSCS, Pn1
Owner/Founder - Integrated Physiologist

"I believe that the first step in becoming the best version of ourselves is to admit our weaknesses and opportunities for growth.  Living in this mindset every day, 'SYX' has been my alter ego and the inspiration for the company name, as it is the number of man's imperfections.  The purpose of this site and our services is to get you those missing pieces.  Thank you for visiting us, and we look forward to empowering you on your journey!"
