What is KA-TAC

KA-TAC stands for Kalamazoo Tactical Training. It is a comprehensive tactical training program at West Hills Athletic Club. It will not only make you stronger, quicker and more agile, but it will also give you the confidence you need to get the job done.

Who would benefit from KA-TAC?

Anyone who is in a physically demanding occupation can benefit from KA-TAC. However, KA-TAC is specifically geared toward emergency responders such as law enforcement, fire and rescue, military, and other emergency personnel.

Why should emergency responders enroll in KA-TAC?

As an individual is a high risk occupation, you never know what situation you are going to face. Various physical assets may be required not only to succeed, but also to survive.
