Body by T Fitness was founded in 2015, by 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.
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.
In June 2017, Body by T Fitness opened their 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. In November 18, 2019, BBT Fitness opened its first corporate, 5000 square foot location, BBT Northlake.
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.
Today the BBT Fitness strength and conditioning training sets 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.
