Greetings! My name is Tyler Norman and this is my website. I am a Chicago native and have lived in Kalamazoo for 12 years. I am the Fitness Director at West Hills Athletic Club (WHAC) and also function as a personal trainer. I have a B.S. in Exercise Science and am certified by the American College of Sports Medicine. In the fitness department we have 25 personal trainers (pretty good!) who all retain field related degrees and certifications or are at least enrolled in a field related curriculum. In the 8 years that I have been there, I have seen the club grow from 1500 to 3500 members, and fund 2 renovations. The second renovation occured after the club was purchased by WMU. In addition to my regular job, I am a guest lecturer at several WMU classes and have a weekly radio show on AM 590 WKZO.

In my spare time I enjoy waterskiing, snowmobiling, billiards, and of course, physical training. I love almost all sports and am a huge fan of all Chicago sportsteams. I have a wife, Jennifer and a 5 year old, Richie. We recently built a home in Mattawan and enjoyed the experience from start to finish. We also enjoy spending time at our cottege in Ludington. My career aspirations include becoming the General Manager of a health club and completing my M.S. (both of which are somewhat interdependent).
