ABOUT BBT FITNESS

2015

Then

      From there, Tyler’s college clientele steadily started to grow; and he made the choice to officially start Body by T Fitness, offering personal training services that were affordable to college students. He quickly realized that in order to gain business stability and be able to offer his clients consistent training, that he would need to purchase his own facility. 

The Beginning: Body by T

Body by T Fitness was founded in 2015, by a college student, Tyler Hickey offering training in random apartment complexes to simply make rent payments. Tyler, a native of Wilmington, North Carolina came to UNCC hoping to walk onto UNCC Charlotte’s Football team.  One day, while training in a campus gym, Tyler was approached by a college classmate that wanted assistance with becoming a fitness model.  

2016

BBT Fitness: 1st Private Facility Opens 

2017

      The foundation of BBT fitness success is centered around Tyler’s passion for training and inspiring individuals in making a lifestyle change through affordable fitness options. One of Tyler’s philosophies is the ‘BBT Triangle Offense’, where we use a 3-phase attack to help each client accomplish their goals.  

2020

 In June 2017, Body by T Fitness opened its first strength and conditioning facility, in a small 2000 square foot warehouse in the North Charlotte/University Area. The gym quickly became one of the fastest-growing gyms in Charlotte; so much so, that space became an issue.  On November 18, 2019, BBT Fitness opened its first corporate, 5000 square foot location, BBT Northlake.  

2018

Now

Today, BBT Fitness is one of Charlotte's top Strength and Conditioning Training Facilities. Defined by our signature training programs, BBT   set us apart from most fitness programs.  Our success is predicated in our commitment to our clients, high community involvement, and our training philosophy; which is built on having coaches that affect clients 23 hours of the day to help make fitness a lifestyle versus trainers, who only affect a client for the 1 hour they train with them. Body by T Fitness is Charlotte’s premier training facility to achieve a Better Body, Better Confidence, and a Better You.

THE BBT RESULTS FORMULA

Triangle Offense

No matter if your goal is to lose some extra belly fat, or to gain 15 lbs of muscle; we understand that our clients want results. That's why we have developed the BBT Results Formula; our trademark process for getting client's results. 

  • TRAINING PHILOSOPHY

    Train Consistently

    The Base Tenant of BBT Fitness, we believe our members should train consistently for all that life has to offer. Training doesn't stop after a season, it continues for a lifetime. 

  • NUTRITION PHILOSOPHY

    Eat Consciously

    At BBT Fitness, we don't believe in restrictive meal plans and fad diets. All we ask our members to do is think before they eat. We know that with education, food can be enjoyed the way it was designed to be!

  • LIFESTYLE TRAINING

    Live a Fitness 

    Oriented Lifestyle

    Lifestyle is our major focus as a training company. Whether you're here for 5 months or 5 years; we believe that developing a healthy lifestyle is key to long term fitness success. 

OUR VALUES

Empowerment Through Education

As individuals and professionals, we believe that the only way to truly empower our clients is to educate. The restless pursuit of knowledge is a cornerstone of the Body by T promise.

Commitment to Self above All Other Things

No relationship ever succeeds without commitment. We expect our clients to be committed to themselves and their fitness goals. Through good times, as well as bad, we set the expectations that there is no excuse not to achieve your goals.

Deliver ‘Results’

There’s a difference between progress and results. “Progress” simply means making improvements from where one was. However, progress does not ensure lasting change. Our goal at Body by T Fitness is to get our clients lasting “RESULTS” that stay long after their last session. We know that true transformations are lasting both inside and out, and we strive to deliver a transformation to each of our clients!
