Regardless of whether you are a first responder, a competitive athlete or just someone looking to off-set the negative effects of sitting at a desk all day, Tacfit offers one of the most natural and effective workouts possible. Unlike many fitness programs, Tacfit is not only Effective, it’s interesting, rewarding, and engaging
Unlike some other exercise regimes, Tacfit doesn’t believe that a good workout should hurt and therefore it doesn’t involve unnecessarily long aerobic workouts or put undue strain on any part of your body. Instead, Tacfit uses progressive movement that works with your body’s innate power; so not only will you get stronger, fitter and more agile, but you will recover a whole lot faster as well. Every workout is customised to suit your fitness level so you will always be working as hard as you need to without overdoing it, and to further reduce your chance of injury every class starts and ends with targeted warm up and cool down exercises.
Working with your biochemistry
One of the secrets to human optimization is finding a way to tap into your body’s natural ability to build energy, increase muscle tissue and burn fat – Tacfit does just that. By balancing high intensity workouts with active recovery Tacfit accelerates your nervous system, so not only will you always be ready for peak performance, but your body will be operating far more efficiently even when you are in a state of rest.
Scalable and inclusive
Tacfit is based on a series of 26 exercise circuits, 4 levels of complexity and 6 timing protocols, with each circuit lasting 20 minutes. The beauty of this system is that not only are there plenty of opportunities to challenge yourself, but people of all levels of strength, fitness and ability can train together. Best of all, you can practice Tacfit anytime and anywhere, because while Tacfit classes often utilise tools such as medicine balls, club-bells and pullup bars, there are bodyweight alternatives for every exercise that you can do safely on your own.
Tacfit helps your body to build functional power for the things you want and need it for; improving your strength, agility, endurance and stamina for real world challenges.
Poor alignment can cause your body to make unnatural adjustments to compensate, making it difficult to achieve peak performance. Tacfit reinforces your body’s key structural platforms, ensuring that your bones and muscles are aligned and supported the way they should be.
The human body was designed to be strong, mobile and pain free and Tacfit will help return you to that optimal state of being. By improving alignment, restoring mobility, speeding up recovery and reducing joint dysfunction, Tacfit will not only reduce aches and pains, it will restore a more natural flow to the way you move.
Increased mental clarity
Apart from providing an extremely effective way to burn off stress, Tacfit utilizes precision-based movements and techniques that improve your mental focus, leaving you feeling calmer, sharper and more emotionally stable.
