TEAM

Through our collective vision of unparalleled personal training service and extraordinary passion, we’ve revolutionized our community- one step at a time.

Tysan Lerner

Tysan has been a fitness and wellness professional since 1997. Her approach to fitness incorporates breath, accuracy, agility, functionality, and focus.  

First educated as a personal trainer at New York University, Tysan has gone on to get certified in many modalities of movement and health coaching--including yoga, pilates, gyrotonic™, pre/post natal, and corrective exercise, functional nutrition, and transformational coaching.  

Tysan has worked as a top teacher and trainer NYC at Reebok Sports Club, HBO Corp, Crunch, and moved on to run her own practice in NYC before moving online.  

What makes working with Tysan unique is that she was a professional dancer, and integrates all her movement training (which she received from masters at the top of their field) with a solid exercise science training model. She is also a highly trained coach, so she helps her clients get out of their own way with the help of her coaching skills. 

Zenon Dolnyckyj

Zenon was the Head Performance Coach of Golf & Body NYC and a Tier 3 trainer at Equinox. He is a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and the Chek Institute as a corrective exercise coach and Golf Biomechanic.  

He is a level 2 certified Kettlebell instructor through CrossFit’s head instructor Jeff Martone of the Tactical Athlete and Jason C. Brown of Kettlebell Athletics and Pre and Post Natal Certified through Annette Lang. Most recently he has spent over a year and a half working with Ben Shear, a national leader in sports performance training.  

Zenon’s movement background started in hockey and was followed by Chinese Martial Arts. Both hard and internal styles of Gong Fu have laid the foundation of his holistic and acute style of coaching movement and pain relief. Balanced by western exercise science, clients experience the familiarity of American exercise protocols while benefiting from the Eastern style training of breath, focus and choice.

About Our System

By working toward Body Mastery you are investing in your most important possession: your body. 

 You only get one, and it is miraculous. With the right system, technique, and discipline, you can build it to support your needs and feel amazing. 

Mastery is often misunderstood as a goal. It’s actually a journey. It requires a state of mind that must be strengthened through continued nurturing. When you work to perform movement with precision, you’re “mastering” your body one bit at a time. When striving for good health through good food and lifestyle choices, you’re “mastering” your body one bit at a time.  

While pain and gain are the common refrain in fitness, Body Mastery emphasizes the concept of nurturing yourself. While counting calories is a common approach to weight loss, Body Mastery emphasizes enjoying whole, nutrient dense foods and mindfulness as a means to a slender healthy body.  

This journey includes dancing in the line between intensity and rest. Intensity is crucial to body transformation, but so is rest and relaxation. So in reality, what brings you to your best body is balance. When you use purposeful rest and relaxation you are balancing the forces of nature on your body and balancing the forces in your body.  

MOVEMENT

We teach people how to move optimally. 

This includes teaching the art of movement timing. 

Have you ever run for a bus and missed it? Have you have ever missed catching or kicking a ball? Have you ever come down off a step and it didn’t feel quite right?  

If you don’t reach your destination on time, you've wasted energy. 

If your coordination is off, you won’t complete your task.

If your neuromuscular timing (the comunication between your nervous system and your muscular system)is off, it's very easy to get injured. 

There's rhythm in movement and in the body. Discovering your rhythm is your personal journey in Body Mastery.  

This also includes the art of movement alignment. 

Think of a building design. If there is just one measurement off in that design, the whole building could get thrown out of alignment, destroying its integrity, longevity, or worse, its ability to get built. 

The human being is similar. Each joint, muscle, and bone working in alignment creates strength, freedom, stability, speed, and space. 

FOOD

Truly mastering your body requires self awareness and the ability to understand how food is affecting you. 

It requires eating in a way that makes your body work efficiently. 

At Tyzen, we encourage a diet that is rich in local, seasonal whole foods. We encourage eating the foods that energize you, and make you feel better. 

Which foods that includes is different for each individual. 

However, regardless of which diet is optimal for you, great nutrition is the foundation for great success. 

We emphasize high quality protein and whole grains (for some), quality fats, fresh and nourishing greens, a variety of vegetables, and fruits.  

We turn back to traditional Chinese science and traditions to deepen our understanding of how to eat. 

Inspired by the Five Element Theory, we teach our clients how to build meals based on color, taste, season, constitution, and joy.  

We want your hormones to reach a state of balance and your digestion and gut to be working well so that you feel energetic and healthy.

LIFESTYLE

There's a connection between our emotional state and the health of our body.  

If we diligently workout and eat well, yet are miserable, sad, angry, or continually anxious, it can wear down our body to the point of destruction.  

This wisdom is passed down from ancient Chinese doctors. They taught us that there's a direct link between our physical health and the way we think and move.  

Therefore, we encourage you to fine-tune your life so it's filled with joy, creativity, spirituality, and good relationships.  

If you have ways in which you sabotage your health, such as emotional eating or poor sleep habits, we offer health coaching to help you declutter and start fresh.
