Dr. Tyler is the best! He always makes time for my boys and is essential in keeping them healthy and available during their long seasons.

Tyler has put together an absolutely phenomenal team, and the holistic and tailored approach towards helping his clients/members meet their goals truly stands apart. Despite my incredibly fluid and demanding work/life schedule (travel requirements for work unexpectedly exploded right after I began the program), the team has been simultaneously adaptable, patient, and yet appropriately encouraging to help design and implement a program that will get results. Super positive, clean, professional, and motivational environment – can’t say enough good things about the FE ecosystem and experience thus far. 👍🏼👍🏼

Great experience. My coach, Ann-Marie, is attentive, responsive and encouraging. She prepares challenging programs, customized to my goals. Everyone on the staff is friendly and supportive.

Best gym I’ve ever been to!! All the coaches really take the time to get to know every member. I’ve been coming here for over a year and a half and couldn’t be happier.
Terry Cornell

The coaches, the atmosphere and the other people that come to this gym, makes the difference

I have been a member of Functional Effect for over 5 years and highly recommend this facility to anyone interested in lifelong health and fitness. No matter what your age or fitness level, the trainers at FE can meet your needs and goals with safe, individualized programs. In addition, the members are super friendly and supportive. You need to visit this facility and get additional information. They won’t disappoint!

Personalized workout programs accommodate my needs and limitations. A very friendly, welcoming gym. I’ve been working out by Zoom for the last 2+ year and my coach really cares about my progress and checks in when he thinks I might be falling off the wagon.
Tony Gentile

After my back pain came back, Functional Effect was able to get me on my feet again. Always a great place to workout with no judgement! Thanks FE team!

Brooke Kelly

Do not pass this place up! It’s not a gym, it’s a community. They provide personalized fitness programs asked on your goals, and offer challenging/fun/fresh group workouts every week.

I have been going to Tyler for a number of years. He trained me pre stroke and now post stroke. Over two and half years ago I had a basilar artery stenosis (stroke) I lost breathing, voice and swallowing as well as weight loss and muscle tone. Tyler along with many others worked with me to bring me back to near normal. In May I turn 80 and am very thankful for all the help and support I have been given.
Tyler not only worked on my body but also was very encouraging in helping me over come the depression that comes with a stroke. I highly recommend Tyler and Functional Effect.

FE has made a difference in my life!  Thank you FE!

Two years ago,  I decided that I desperately wanted to age better than most people I see. I wanted to be able to put on and tie my own shoes, to reach overhead, to stand up tall, etc.  I had recovered from a frozen shoulder the previous year and that required a lot of physical therapy.  My therapist, a very bright and caring woman told me I was not moving well in so many ways.  She was willing to work with me, but the cost of that was prohibitive.

Months before I had seen Sarah at my gym. I was always very impressed with her, so when she told me she had her own gym and was married to a chiropractor who also worked at the gym, I was intrigued!  I kept her card, but did not act on it for several months. Life happened and I stopped working out.

One day I was talking to one of my patients and decided to take my own advice and get active again.    I could get back to my usual gym, but was not impressed with the trainers I saw there. So, I called Sarah and set up my appointment.

I will tell you it has not been an easy journey.  I realized that despite being very active my body was not moving well.  Patterns had been established over time that were now causing me discomfort and even pain.  I could not get up off of the floor without using my arms.  My squats were atrotious! My core was weak!  More than once I was brought to tears as to how hard my brain had to work to understand how to move better!  Without the encouragement of Tyler, Sarah, Andrew, Dave and the rest of the staff, not to mention the other awesome clients, I think I would have thrown in the towel a long time ago.

So it has been a little over two years, I have gained muscle, improved strength, toned quite a bit, lost some weight  and best of all MOVE BETTER! I quite honestly do not SEE  the changes, but am often told that I look younger than ever 🙂  I do FEEL the change!

It is very difficult to get bored at Functional Effects- my program changes just when I have mastered it, there are regular challenges and the place is just fun! I can interact with others, or zone in my own little world.  FE helps me to take care of all of me, including managing stress, learning how to be more mindful, and give myself a break!

FE has made a difference in my life!  Thank you FE!

You will get a lot of attention, and compassion from everyone.


The fitness assistance, direction, and training I receive from Functional Effects is always evolving, adapting, and working specifically towards my needs. I cannot ask anymore from the crew at FE. I rely on them for guidance, and training, whether for basic fitness or for intense training such as preparing for a Triathlon. The staff is friendly and attentive, and it’s a great environment to be in all the time. FE is for everybody. When I first started over 2 years ago, I was far from being fit, but I was never intimated by their programs. I cannot encourage people enough to join FE. You will get a lot of attention, and compassion from everyone.


I always rely on Dr. Reynolds to help me with health related questions from aches and pains, to nutrition. He takes a holistic approach to health and it’s great to work with someone who is incredibly knowledgeable about the body, health, and well-being. Even better his services are so well priced and I always feel I get more than what I pay for.

Very educated and friendly staff. I was learning my “A” day program and Coach Willie took his time explaining what the exercises were doing for my body. I got immediate feedback and felt confident I could complete the rounds with proper form.
Drew Penwitt
I’ve been going to Functional Effect for about a year now and could not be happier with my experience. Great atmosphere and great people. Dr. Tyler is very knowledgeable and makes his clients feel heard and comfortable. Highly recommended!

I love the FE community and can't imagine my routine without it.

Before finding us, what was your struggle? What were your biggest frustrations?

I wanted to lose weight and I had broken my knee and was getting back to my routine of playing tennis but was suffering great hip pain and was having trouble keeping up. Wanted to get back to where I was but was having trouble.

How did your struggle and frustrations affect your life? What did you feel like before you made your transformation?

I felt demoted. I played competitive tennis and I used to be a court 1 player and now played court 4 due to my limited mobility. My team didn’t have the confidence in me to even play me in our playoff matches. I was left off the line up when I was once a key contributor.

How did our program help you?

I feel stronger, have regained my team one spot with great mobility and feel great. Haven’t lost 20 pounds but I feel and look better.

How is life different for you now?

I have more energy, can move better and feel I can protect myself from future injury because of it. This is the only exercise routine I have ever been consistent with. I love the FE community and can’t imagine my routine without it.
