Coach Tyler Ray is a pioneer of modern vertical jump technique and a 20-year veteran strength coach. Tyler’s early days as an athlete truly informed the coach he has become today. He competed for the University of Windsor Track and Field team and was part of three National Championship teams during his time there, competing as a multi-event athlete in the pentathlon.
Following this, he moved into the world of professional dunking and was able to increase his vertical jump to a staggering 48 inches, competing in shows and contests around the globe. With a background in human kinetics and education, Tyler quickly found his calling in working with athletes. Now, 20 years later, he is considered to be at the top of his field, and through the help of social media, he has grown his private-sector business to have more than 150 certified jump technique coaches worldwide (and growing). Tyler works out of his private gym at his home in Harrow, Ontario, Canada, right on Lake Erie.
