Scott Sonnon’s new-and-improved TACFIT 26 program is a comprehensive, plug-and-play tactical fitness program that will help you develop a high standard of fitness by burning stubborn fat, building functional muscle, injury-proofing your body, and improving your conditioning level using a variety of movement-based exercise and conditioning skills via several unique training protocols that were [...]
I got an email yesterday from RMAX International announcing their new line of TACFIT clubbells, which are now available for sale. Not even an hour following the announcement, I received a question about them through my Contact Form, and I’ve received two more in just the last 24 hours. The first one, Ryan, asked me…
I was wondering if you’d had a chance to work with the Tacfit Clubbells yet, and if so, how they compare to the original. Your video review of the originals is great, and addresses the concerns I had about the original design (namely, broken knob screws) – Ryan
So, to answer your questions as best I can. Here’s the rundown…
I’ve been hearing about and seeing TACFIT clubbells appear in photos for awhile, though have not used them myself yet. I’ve got an *almost* full collection of the original CST-style clubbells, and don’t see any reason why I’d need to purchase any new ones apart from having cleaner/fresher clubs without any wear and tear. Truth be told, I’m kindof fond of my old, beat-up clubbells – even with their shortcomings.
From what I’ve read and heard, the new TACFIT clubbells have a few changes which make them different from the originals.
1) They’re noticeably slimmer, which should contribute to a lower risk of injury from impact (it happens) and also make the clubbell more portable (e.g. for air travel, etc.). So, if you’re a traveling clubber, you may find benefit in the more compact TACFIT clubbells.
2) RMAX also claims they have a tougher and more ergonomic knob, which according to them is “indestructible.” This is good news because the number one complaint I’ve heard about the original clubbell design has been about damaged or malfunctioning knobs. And I’ve had some issues with clubbell knobs breaking, too. So, I hope this is true! Continue reading New TACFIT Clubbells: The Rundown
TACFIT Survival is a comprehensive, plug-and-play fitness training program that will help you develop a high standard of fitness by burning stubborn fat, building functional muscle and improving your conditioning level using a variety of movement skills and training protocols that were specifically created to improve performance in high stress situations such as competitive fighting.
Note: I just got a copy of TACFIT Survival this morning. So, naturally, I have not used the entire program, and this TACFIT Survival Review is based on my first impressions.
The TACFIT entourage just released a new training program called TACFIT Survival. Truth be told, I have been looking forward to this for a number of months, but I didn’t know it was being released today until this morning when a few of you wrote to me about it (thanks!). I have not used TACFIT Survival before, but in my travels, I’ve spoken with a few people that have attended a TACFIT Survival seminar, and I’ve heard comments ranging from “it’s freaking awesome” to “I thought I was going to die, and then I was done!” Needless to say, I’ve gotten mixed feedback, but overall, everything has been really positive.
Anyways, I just downloaded the entire program a few hours ago, and have had a quick looksee at all the materials. I took one session through a test drive (video forthcoming). As can be expected from a TACFIT program, it’s good stuff as far as I can tell, but it’s not necessarily RMAX’s finest from a product quality standpoint – in my humble opinion. That said, there’s no doubt in my mind that this is a solid program and I bet many of you will enjoy using it as I will in the future. I thought I’d give you my initial thoughts while the launch sale is still running (31% off until Sunday, April 15. Yep, that’s THIS Sunday!). So, hopefully, this review will help you figure out if TACFIT Survival is right for you and your goals.
In case you’re already familiar with the other TACFIT programs out there, TACFIT Survival is very much like TACFIT Commando. So, if you’ve enjoyed TACFIT Commando (I know that at least several dozen of my readers have from all the messages and comments I’ve received over the years), then you’ll also enjoy TACFIT Survival. They are certainly not one in the same, but they are quite similar in many ways. So, in that case, if you want more training materials to work through, TACFIT Survival will be right up your alley.
But for those that aren’t familiar with the other TACFIT programs, what’s all the fuss about TACFIT Survival? What’s inside the program, what do you have to do, and most importantly, what can it do for you? Well, now that you’ve asked, let’s have a look. Continue reading TACFIT Survival Review – First Impressions
TACFIT Firefighter is a low-tech, high effect fitness training program that involves a carefully-selected collection of health-first conditioning methods that are packaged into one comprehensive, plug-and-play system to help you improve your fitness by burning stubborn fat, building functional muscle and improving your conditioning level in a variety of movement skills that were specifically engineered to improve performance in the firefighting profession. I’d say that sums it up, but boy, what a mouthful!
TACFIT Firefighter was created by firefighters, for firefighters, but it is an excellent program for anyone who is interested in a high standard of fitness and peak performance in their job and in their lifestyle. You may never need to rescue someone from a burning building, or wield a 290 psi fire hose like firefighters do every day, but if you want to be leaner, stronger, and more fit for your life, then TACFIT Firefighter may still be a good option for you. Of course, almost anyone could benefit from using this program, but that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily right for everyone, which is why I recommend you get your questions answered BEFORE you pull out that credit card and shell out your hard-earned cash.
TACFIT Firefighter was created by two fire captains who both have had a lifelong love of fitness. Both of the co-creators, Christian Carson and Ryan Provencher, are fitness professionals and TACFIT Division Chiefs, the highest level certification awarded in the TACFIT hierarchy (TACFIT is short for tactical fitness and is a fast-growing system under the RMAX International organization, which also puts out the Circular Strength Training system, in which the author is certified). These guys are well-credentialed and certainly qualified to address the fitness needs facing the firefighting profession, but what is the REAL TRUTH behind this system they’ve put together – is it worth it, does it work, and who would be best served by TACFIT Firefighter?
This review is going to answer all of those questions and more. Ultimately, my goal is to help you decide if this product is right for you.
So, what is TACFIT Firefighter and what do you actually get when you buy it?
Well, have a look at this first. This will give you the general gist of what you’re getting…
It’s ok. I get it – that was pretty dang cool. And I hope you caught how the exercises chosen coincide with the actual duties that firefighters need to perform. That’s something we discussed at length during my interview with Christian and Ryan about TACFIT Firefighter. But I’m getting off topic. Suffice to say, that was a pretty sweet trailer, and it’s that kind of production quality and attention to detail that you can expect from the rest of the TACFIT Firefighter Program. Sometimes, it’s better to SEE the quality that you’ll be buying instead of just hearing about it.
