Meet Tyson & the SuperFit Family
SuperFit's Social Media
These athletes are making us better in every way and are teaching us! Our mission is just to let them show the world that they cannot be limited! To rise above expectations!!!!
We are Steven and Kyla Ford. We have two sons, Tyson and Dominic. Tyson is 16 and has Down Syndrome. He has truly changed our lives and made us see that there truly are No Limits!!! So, to us, when we here Down Syndrome is…. we think Down Syndrome is LIMITLESS! He has been through so much in his life.. and always comes out smiling! That smile is contagious!
We have recently started a program, called SuperFit that we cant wait to spread and share with others. Fitness and nutrition has been our passion for years. Steven and I are both personal trainers, we are black belts that teach martial arts, combat training for law enforcement officers, functional fitness classes for our fire department, multiple other classes, and now we are the Fitness Ambassadors for Police Fitness….and yet still, something was missing… and thus, SuperFit was born
Tyson has been through multiple surgeries and had several health issues! But, I’ll keep it as simple as possible A few years ago he was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and was gaining a lot of weight. His acid reflux, that he had struggled with since very young, had reached a scary level.
The doctors wanted to do a major surgery and he wouldn’t be able to eat solid foods for 6 months, etc. They said losing weight may help some of the issues, but might be near impossible with the hypothyroidism. We came home from that surgeon’s visit, looked at each other and said…we can do this!
Tyson showed us his true strength, inside and out!! He pushed so hard and with diet and exercise had lost 20 pounds in only a few months and the doctors said the changes in his esophagus looked miraculous! He loved running obstacle races with us, doing karate, lifting weights, anything and everything!!! We knew he could do it and were beyond thrilled!!!
Then something started pulling on my heart! Spread the love….share the word… empower others!!!!! So we started a special needs fitness class and it has been life changing!!!!! Weekly we put these guys through intense, crazy, fun workouts! These athletes are making us better in every way and are teaching us! Our mission is just to let them show the world that they cannot be limited! To rise above expectations!!!!
Tyson believes he can do anything…and if he puts his mind to it.. he will….in some form or fashion!
