Taylor Dayne Loyd is owner of TDLFIT and co-owner of Iron Greenhouse. She has been coaching boxing for 8 years. She is USA WEIGHTLIFTING Certified and has her Precision Nutrition Cert. Taylor competed in bodybuilding competitions, bikini and figure. She was a nationally qualified figure competitor. After 3 years of bodybuilding, she made her way into Crossfit.

Taylor is currently training at Crossfit Jaakarhu under Michael Winchester. She is a passionate athlete and coach with high expectations for her athletes. She grew up struggling with wanting to be really skinny. She was completely obsessed, and even went through a bad drug problem. After being in a rough spot, she decided one night to change her life around, ditched her dream to be skinny, and decided to show herself how strong she can really be.

Since 2007, she have been training, coaching, and competing in the fitness industry. She has been hands on training for 10 years, and takes a balanced approach to fitness combining intense and varied workouts with nutritional and dietary support. Taylor draws inspiration from many workout styles, including CrossFit, bootcamp, plyo, yoga, gymnastics, and fighting.

In this episode, Taylor talks about her journey in the fitness world, transitioning from bodybuilding to CrossFit, and her experience competing on a team at regionals and the games. Taylor gravitated towards CrossFit because of the sense of community. In bodybuilding, there was no sense of team or “us”, so the team centered environment of CrossFit instantly hooked her.
