What are our
Tactical and Ruck programs?

Tactical and ruck training are fitness concepts created around utilizing one’s environment to mimic real-world scenarios that these athletes may face in the day-to-day of their chosen profession. Tactical is perfect for current or prior military personnel as it gets athletes outside the gym and combines combat conditioning with things like sandbags and farmer carries. Ruck is good for hikers or First Responders who want an additional challenge added to their fitness routine as the added weight helps condition these athletes to carry great weight in the field.

In layman’s terms? Tactical and ruck help individuals build physical strength while reinforcing the concepts of teamwork, creating solutions in high-pressure situations, all while carrying extra weighted apparel or equipment.
