Growing up Tyler played a wide variety of sports but found his niche playing golf. He played golf for the Air Force Academy and Michigan State but after graduating he felt something was missing.

One day he was flipping through channels and came across the 2014 CrossFit Games on ESPN. Shortly after he wandered into a CrossFit AZO (check them out if you're in the Kalamazoo area) and the rest is history. Tyler took his L-1 course in January of 2017 and has been a member of the coaching staff since. In the 2017 CrossFit Open, Tyler earned Fittest in the District.
