What ZLP Athletes say about Christian

Tyler Skovron

CEO/Director of Functional Performance

Dubbed the "posture specialist" by Braves lefty pitcher (and former Texas Ranger) Cole Hamels, Skovron spent years fine-tuning the Zero Limits  Performance method and working with clients to improve fitness, alignment, balance and overall athleticism.

Hamels hired Skovron to help make his exercises more efficient. "I stuck to that 5-6 days a week," he said. "I also changed my strength program, it allowed me to utilize and identify my mechanics a little better, getting back to when I felt at my best. Over a period of time, your body doesn't allow you to do that. You get stronger, but you're not utilizing everything that you have." 

After working with Skovron, Cubs infielder David Bote said, "People said I now look bigger and say how much weight I’ve put on. I really haven’t put on extra weight. I’m better stacked. I’m more open in the chest area and not so rounded, more vertical. I can move easier and have better range of motion."  After working with the posture specialist, Bote was quoted saying he measured two inches taller. 

Tyler has nearly 15 years of hands-on experience. Skovron, who once worked with golfers to achieve balance between body and swing, transitioned to baseball in 2017 and has worked with more than 50 MLB and MiLB athletes.
