Tight Club Check In: Michael Kong & Tyler Pentland

Take a peek inside the Tight Club community, each week we’re checking in with one of our crew to learn what they get up to when they’re not slamming balls or crushing burpee challenges. These are the people that motivate you in class when sh!t gets real. From OG’s to newbies, here’s their inside scoop.

Meet Michael and Tyler.

Tyler and Michael

How long have you two been dating?

2 years ;)

Where did you meet?

DA CLUB - mutual friends and what not.

Do you work out together?

Michael: Tyler usually comes to my classes- but the most recent fave has been taking Keighty’s classes together. We try and keep it on the minimum though because I can only grab his butt so many times before it becomes distracting.

Tyler and Michael

What is tight in both of your lives right now?
Tyler: Heatlhy heart, mind and body!
M: My chest and biceps.  

What is one thing that people might not know about your partner?
T: Michael is a math wizard and would have gone into mathematics if not for his love of contemporary dance.
M: Tyler's middle name is Leslie.  

What is your Signature Tight Club Move?
T: Wiping the sweat off my brow.
M: Anal Kicks.

What’s your spirit animal and why?
T: Nina Simone. She is soulful, empowering, and the soundtrack to some great memories in my life.
M: Shaughnessy moms. Because I like expensive trail mix and think coconut water is a good hangover cure; also if you don’t score that goal you don’t get any Dairy Queen tonight.

You’re both busy people, but what are some of your favourite things to do together?
T: Laugh together, make dinner, and fart around the house.
M: Everything; we have a large lust for life and friendships. As Keighty says, “For someone who teaches as much as they do, you really have the largest social life I know.” It's nice to have a partner who gets my M.O. and has fun joining me on the “cruise” of life.

If you could go anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?
M: Paris. I would take Tyler to all the places I cried when i went alone.
T: Paris. That's where all the big love things happen and Michael has always spoke so fondly of it. We'll make some great memories there for sure!

Do you have any pre or post workout rituals?
M: Beer, but I am not going to tell you specifically pre or post.
T: Wine, but I am not going to tell you specifically pre or post.

What was the last sweet thing your parter did for you?
M: Tyler is always being cute and sweet so it's hard to think of one in detail. I think what stands out for me as his sweet thing is that he’s always there with me at 6am Ride and then 6:15pm Tight Club every Tuesday. Two workouts coached by your partner in one day - I mean thats total commitment. Bring a book.
T: Michael’s smile; it says a million things at once and he is always smiling! Brightens my day.

Any healthy habits that you’ve formed together?
M: Sober November. Thank god its only once a year.
T: Spending more time with each others family.

What does The Tight Life mean to you?
M: It means exactly what Keighty has taught me: to be yourself. Enter a room as yourself, lead as yourself, love as yourself, and just in general make everyone around you feel like themselves. No one should have to act a certain way for someone else and I think I've learned that this year. So really, The Tight Life to me means freedom and positivity.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
