The goal of the tactical fitness program is to provide the highest level of physical training posable to those who serv and protect our local community’s as well as our country. The Tactical strength and conditioning program was designed for tactical athletes including conventional military forces, Special Operations forces, Swat, law enforcement, Fire rescue first responders, as well as those responsible for their physical training.
Our goal in this program is to optimize mission as well as job performance by combining cutting edge research, applied training methods and field experience in effort to reduce injury risk by increasing power, strength, speed, agility as well as aerobic and anaerobic fitness.
A large difference between tactical athletes and collegiate and pro athletes is length of occupational loads and injuries. If a pro athlete gets injured, they sit the bench go to PT, see a doc, and heal up and continue their career. A tactical athlete gets injured it can cost the mission or someone could die. A large part of tactical fitness is preparing the body not just for strength, but to be able to utilize intense work capacity in a sec for years without injury.
A firefighter doesn’t have time to stretch and warm up before running to a call and picking up a 350lb heart attack patient. Velocity, endurance, and strength training are many key components of tactical fitness.
