Team Ambassador



ILL-EGO Culture Brands Ambassador (Metroflex/H&I/Alpha Kitchen)

My name is Tyler Barnes. I’m 28 years old and I’ve been a competitive Olympic weightlifter for about 3 years. I’ve been training at Metroflex since September and I love it here! Ever since switching over to Metroflex, it really feels like home. I came to Metroflex because they offered an environment that no other gym in town did. I’ve been married for 2 years and my wife, Kaitlyn, is also a competitive Olympic weightlifter.


My best competition lifts are a 175kg/386lbs clean and jerk and a 128kg/282lbs snatch. My current goal for weightlifting is to qualify for nationals; I am 11kg/24lbs away from qualifying, which will put me in the top 35 in the nation. By the end of 2020, my goal is to be in the top 20.

“I am very thankful to be a part of the CULTURE BRANDS FAMILY. The amount of support I receive makes it possible for me to pursue my goals in life and in Olympic weightlifting.”
