Messiah Tutson BA, CSCS, ACE Certified
Messiah joined the Florida Institute of Performance in August of 2017. He graduated from the University of Iowa in 2010 with a Bachelor of Art in Interdepartmental Studies with an emphasis in Health Coaching. In addition to his degree, he is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the National Strength and Conditioning Association and also an A.C.E. Certified Personal Trainer.
Messiah became interested in the field of strength and conditioning while in high school. His offseason track workouts greatly impacted his personal athletic success. His hard work in the gym led to a pair of state championship relay titles in track and eventually, his career as a performance coach.
He has had a variety of valuable work experiences prior to joining FIP, including working as a financial advisor, a personal trainer and a youth counselor for “at risk” teens. His experiences have given him the opportunity to work with athletes at all levels from youth to professional.
After graduating from Iowa, Messiah continued his education through several internships, beginning with Got Strength Gym in his home state where he coached middle school and high school athletes. Additionally, he had two different opportunities to work at the prestigious Bommarito Performance Systems in Miami. Here he participated in all aspects of implementing elite training programs for the numerous professional athletes attending BPS as well as several youth, high school and collegiate clients.
Each experience has enhanced Messiah’s coaching skills, but has also solidified his passion for the field of strength and conditioning and the desire to improve the overall health, well-being and performance of his athletes. It is his hope to positively impact an individual’s confidence, self-esteem and mental fortitude through his role as a performance coach.
In his free time, Messiah enjoys playing basketball, weight lifting, reading, drawing and cooking. He is originally from Iowa City, Iowa and currently lives in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
