TACFIT TACTICAL

Conventional fitness programs such as body building routines, endurance training programs, randomized/non-periodized cross-training, and home exercise programs are often specific to a certain sport, or generalized for basic physical preparedness. Many focus on body appearance alone. Unfortunately, these conventional fitness programs do not meet the tactical needs of first responders because they are not designed to develop the wide array of physical attributes required to stay safe while performing at a high level.

TACFIT Military: Preparing the Warfighter for the Close Fight and the Long Haul

Many current military fitness programs were developed based off of sports training programs or on general physical preparedness for a predominantly young, male demographic to be trained in large numbers to the least acceptable fitness risk standard in the shortest time possible. Suitable and feasible for conscription based armies with a steady stream of replacements and a linear campaign strategy that expected to demobilize these armies in a relatively short time frame. This model is not suitable for smaller, professional, career soldiers who are expected to operate independently, exercise judicious discretion in the application of firepower, and deploy to combat on multiple tours over their career.

The needs for strength, mobility, and endurance for the close combat soldier has not changed for a millennia. What has changed is the increased performance demands on the soldier and the diminished baseline fitness of post-industrial societies. TACFIT uniquely addresses this by restoring mobility, developing six-degree strength, conditioning the nervous system for rapid recovery from stress in order to maintain skill and judgment, and compensating drills to release the tension of physical and skill training.

Military physical training must be designed to improve fitness while reducing the risk of injury and acute and chronic effects of combat and operational stress. Our mission is to design specific and comprehensive physical training programs that will optimize military occupational performance and prepare us for the challenges we face in the line of duty during a career of multiple deployments.

More than 20% of non-battle injury medical evacuations form Iraq during 2003-2008 were related to physical training and 76% of garrison injuries are from running. Thousands of soldiers are injured on the job each year by the very training that is supposed to improve their physical and psychological performance in combat.

This costs the taxpayers millions of dollars direct medical costs and millions of dollars in indirect costs of wasted training. We strive to reduce the risk of injury and death through varied intensity physical training and psychological resilience programming. We are dedicated to helping the warfighter perform at a high level, avoid injury, and return home safely after each mission.

TACFIT reduces the risk of injury and chronic stress induced illness through the varied intensity of physical training and psychological resilience protocols. We are dedicated to helping the warfighter perform at a high level, avoid injury, and return home safely after each mission.

Exercises included in TACFIT military programs have been reversed engineered from specific occupational tasks. These training sessions will develop strength, power, metabolic conditioning, dynamic body movement, and mobility while placing a high priority on recovery and injury prevention.

TACFIT Military is a special division of TACFIT, a metabolic conditioning program created by Coach Scott Sonnon. Law Enforcement Agencies, Martial Artists, MMA Fighters, Sports Teams, and Elite Military Units around the world have been utilizing TACFIT programs to enhance occupational performance for many years with great success. Achieving elite fitness for the warfighter is not only about performance, it is about survival.

TACFIT Law Enforcement Training Division: Changing and Saving Lives While Improving Tactics

Workouts for cops must be designed to not only improve overall fitness, but also must be time management friendly, giving the cop the most” bang of his or her fitness buck”. Equally important as the workout sessions themselves, is the fact that we must endeavor to instill a maintenance of a healthy lifestyle that permits an officer to safely complete his or her 25+ years on the job, and then enjoy another 25+ years in retirement, a fact that statistically is a rare occurrence.

The mission of the law enforcement division is to design specific and comprehensive physical fitness and physical readiness training programs, which optimize job performance, and preparing cops for the challenges they may face in the line of duty. Far too many police officers die each year in the line of duty, and into retirement succumbing to a job related (or caused) cardiac event.

Thousands of police officers are injured on the job each year, costing the taxpayers millions and millions of dollars. We must strive to reduce the risk of injury, and early deaths, through varied intensity physical training and healthy lifestyle programming.

Retired US Marshal Charlie Moore, a 32-year law enforcement veteran leads the TACFIT Law Enforcement Division (TFLED). Moore says; “Here at the TACFIT law enforcement training division we are dedicated to helping police officers anywhere in the world to perform to their highest potential, helping them to avoid injury, assist them in increasing the quality of their lives, and first and foremost providing them valuable tools to make sure they always return home safely at the end of each shift.”

The division provides comprehensive health and fitness programs to supplement academy or in- service training and all of our programs are based on time tested and proven RMAX TACFIT training principles, and provide a comprehensive, and health conscious approach to cop fitness.

Not all fitness programs are created equal; many of the workouts currently being marketed to, and used by police officers, were developed with sport specific goals in mind, or are based upon recreational, bodybuilding, or general physical fitness preparedness. These programs are good, but fall far short of meeting the unique demands and specific needs of the law enforcement community.

The exercises and movements contained in TFLED training programs have been reversed engineered from specific job related platforms (DT, shooting, building entry, etc.) and keeping with the S.A.I.D. principle of science (specific adaptation to imposed demands), which seek to not only “get the officer in shape”, but to make them better on performing their job”.  All TFLED workouts develop strength, power, metabolic conditioning, dynamic multi-planar body movements, and effective real life mobility, while placing a top priority on rapid and effective recovery, and heart rate control as well as injury prevention and pre-habilitation, rather than the usual rehabilitation.

TACFIT FIRE/EMS: Changing and Saving Lives

Firefighter/EMS workouts must be designed to improve fitness while reducing the risk of injury and sudden cardiac death. Our mission is to design specific and comprehensive physical training programs that will optimize occupational performance and prepare us for the challenges we face in the line of duty.

More than 50% of firefighters dying each year in the line of duty are succumbing to a cardiac event. Thousands of firefighters are injured on the job each year, costing the taxpayers millions of dollars. We strive to reduce the risk of injury and death through varied intensity physical training and Occupational Health and Wellness programming. We are dedicated to helping First Responders perform at a high level, avoid injury, and return home safely after each shift.

Fire Captain Christian Carson and Training Division Chief Ryan Provencher created TACFIT Fire/ EMS to provide comprehensive health and fitness programs that augment the occupational training of firefighters and EMS workers.

All of our fitness programs are based on Circular Strength Training principles, providing a holistic and health first approach. Not all programs are created equal and many of the workouts used by First Responders around the world were developed for sport specific or general physical preparedness. These programs do not meet our unique needs.
