XPT: Introduction – Tell us about yourself:
Bryce Bertoli: I am a fitness trainer in Central California specializing in human performance and movement. In college, I was a swimmer at the University of Hawaii and graduated with a business degree.
Throughout my early business career, I noticed how disconnected our culture has become from nature and the basic building blocks of health. From this observation, I decided to commit my life to helping people reconnect with nature, each other, and themselves and discover that the ultimate wealth is in health.
XPT: What’s your favorite XPT related tip, discipline, activity, etc to teach your clients?
BB: Kindness, gratitude, and community. I absolutely love teaching the fitness practices XPT has to offer, but most of all I love the XPT people and what they stand for as a community.
From the XPT experiences, articles, and weekly challenges, I have found a common theme of inclusiveness and kindness that sets XPT apart. I love sharing this with my clients, because it brings meaning into the pursuit of optimal performance and health.
Practicing kindness and gratitude on a daily basis is in my opinion the greatest thing we as humans can do for our health and the health of our community. I use and teach the XPT lifestyle because it allows me to show up better for the people I care about in my life… which is everyone 🙂
XPT: How has XPT impacted you and/or your clients?
BB: For clients and myself, I have found that XPT has enhanced our mental clarity and expanded our horizons of what is possible. It has allowed us to grow and achieve beyond our previous limitations.
I like using the analogy of a broken down Ferrari to explain this to others. Most of us come into life as a well-functioning highly-efficient Ferrari, and throughout our lifetime this Ferrari can breakdown and stop working if we don’t care for it properly. The XPT lifestyle provides techniques to maintenance and repair our bodies and get them up and running at full potential again. We can use this gained performance to power our careers, relationships, health, and life.
XPT is an evolving science of performance, and performance is a tool we can intentionally apply to any facet of our lives. I have experienced the performance benefits of XPT first hand in my own life and in the lives of my clients.
XPT: What were the ways you were immediately able to implement XPT learnings into your training following your XPT Certification course?
BB: I was able to integrate the breathing and movement practices immediately into my training protocols. I now add breathing practices before, during, and after workouts to enhance performance and recovery. The science of breathing has also been an incredible tool to share with clients because it is so easily applied to everyday living.
I quickly infused the XPT movement principles into workouts. The XPT philosophy also inspired me to take more workouts into nature, which has been a huge success. I have applied the movement screening and mobility protocols to increase performance during these workouts.
XPT: Anything else you want to tell us? A quote you remember from Certifications? A cool client story? A personal story as it pertains to XPT in your life?
I have been truly blessed to meet some incredible people through XPT. Laird and Gabby have inspired me to achieve new levels of performance and integrate my family into that pursuit. PJ has been extremely influential because of his authenticity and character. As a coach, PJ exemplifies everything I aspire to be. As an individual, PJ inspires me to be a better person by giving back to others and making the world a better place.
And perhaps most notably, I encourage everyone to attend an XPT Experience to meet a fellow named James (Williams). James is without doubt one of the most inspiring, positive, and happy people I have ever met. All the fitness benefits of XPT are amazing, and in addition to them people like James show you how powerful a smile and good heart can transform the world. I try and follow James’s example every day and spread that happiness and joy into the lives of everyone I touch.
