Dissident Spotlight: Tyler Ludwig August 15, 2017 11:12

What made you first get into fitness?

I have been an athlete my whole life. My dad was a powerlifter and my mom and uncle owned their own gym back in the day. 

What motivates you to show up every day?

It’s my escape from the world — my therapy.

What are your health and fitness goals for the future?

I want to get my pro card in mens physique and open my own gym.

What is your favorite exercise?

Deadlifts — anything back.

What made you choose Dissident Gym Wear and how do you relate to the DISSIDENT brand's message?

What they stand for. They are different and they give back. They are also from San Diego.

What is your favorite Dissident piece?

Their "Earned NOT Given" pieces.

What is your proudest fitness achievement?

Sticking to my prep and getting up on stage.

What is your advice to anyone seeking to improve their health and fitness lifestyle?

Do it for yourself. Who cares what people say or think, as long as it makes you happy. Full range of motion is more important than heavy weights. 

What is your favorite quote?

“One more.”
