When asked what his life motto was, Tyler Farnsley replied with “Stay positive.” As a blind individual, Tyler says that staying positive is incredibly important, especially when people
are constantly thinking you can’t do something because of a disability.
Tyler proves the cynics wrong – he has been a member of Aztec Recreation for two years, taking public transportation almost daily to utilize the ARC cardio and fitness rooms. His father works on campus as a Professor in the School of Theatre, Television and Film, which helped Tyler’s select Aztec Recreation for his active lifestyle journey.
Aimee Orozco, Aztec Recreation Member Services Supervisor speaks highly of Tyler, “I have had the pleasure of knowing Tyler for the past two years…almost the entire time he has been a member with Aztec Recreation. He now knows me by the sound of my voice and greeting when he walks into the facility. Tyler is an extremely friendly person with a great attitude. He is an inspiration to many of us here at the ARC.”
Outside of Aztec Recreation, Tyler lives well by walking everywhere. He tries to maximize his daily exercise by walking the long way to maximize his steps. He’s an Aztec for Life with connections at SDSU and with Aztec Recreation staff. Congratulations, Tyler!
