What is Tactical Fitness?
Here is a recent question I was asked about how and why I train like I do:
Question: Why do you train so hard? What is your why?
My answer: To be ready. Ready for any situation. You never know… Your life, a loved one’s life, or someone you are trying to help - their life may depend on your fitness level. Can you carry someone out of a burning building? Can you quickly react to any man-made or natural threat? Can you run, sprint, jump, lift, swim, carry…? Are you an asset or do you need assistance?
There is actually a chapter in the book Tactical Fitness – that discusses the importance of fitness on this level. Not just for military, police, and firefighters – first responders… But for us all.
This topic is also discussed on a deeper level in the Tactical Fitness over 40 series. Just because you’re an OG does not mean you can’t perform at a certain level that can save your own life and others. You can still train hard – you just have to train smarter.
This is actually the definition of tactical fitness. It is not a game. It is potentially life or death.
