TACFIT® uses low-cost and even improvised hand-held equipment—portable tools designed to meet your physical preparation needs whether you’re at base or on deployment: bodyweight, sandbags, boxes, monkey bars, straps or rings, Clubbells, kettlebells and medicine balls. Thanks to TACFIT's ingenious scaled design, everyone from the new recruit to the seasoned operator can participate side-by-side in the same program, building esprit de corps, motivational camaraderie and productive competition to push each other safely to new thresholds of performance.
- The core exercises and each of their 4 scaled variations: Delta for the newbie, Gamma for those who’ve been using TACFIT® for 2-3 weeks, Beta for the brave folks who’ve been at it for 2-3 months, and Alpha which is strictly for bragging rights (we don’t recommend Alpha for everyone, especially not in every program)!
- How to properly execute all of the competition times, volumes and scales involved in each of the 26 programs, with special consideration for available tools, space and time management.
- How to achieve your conditioning goals regardless of your skill level at Delta, Gamma, Beta or Alpha.
- How to wave the 26 program array to meet any fitness goal, including how to cascade all of the attributes from power, mass, and strength to endurance, stamina and agility, to coordination, reaction time and response speed.
- The necessary coaching cues to ensure you and your team learn each of the core exercises safely.
- How to injury-proof your training through Scott Sonnon’s trademarked joint mobility and dynamic flexibilitywarm-ups, and compensatory motor cool-downs designed to offload the tension you generate in the “work” phase.
- How to accelerate recovery from one session to the next so you and your team maintain peak fighting fitness and avoid under-restoration while deployed.
- How each of the core movements create actual “functional” fitness— rather than circus act stunts which are so overspecialized they detract from tactical performance rather than enhance it.
- How TACFIT® can be combined with other physical readiness training demands through Scott Sonnon’s signature “4” method of modulating the biochemical and psycho-physiological arousal associated with high stress.
- And much more!
