You do not need to be a Tactical Athlete or Elite Athlete to apply for the Tier 1 Coaching. We do not care who you are right now, we only care who you aspire to be. If your 'why' is strong enough, then together as a team, we will do anything to ensure we are successful.
We will not guess.. We will conduct 1 week of testing with metric analysis and personal consultation on objective measurements. This begins on the first day of the programme and is known as TEST WEEK. Test Week is repeated every 4-6 weeks to reflect and adjust training to suit your new current ability. What Test Week consists of depends on your equipment and aim. How often you test will depend on what you need.
We understand Tactical Athletes and we will only build you a bespoke programme after we get to know you and your ability. What it looks like, depends on you and your aim. Accurate prescription is vital, as each stimulus prescribed is always aimed towards achieving your goal. We train like a Tactical Athlete and we will be ready for anything thrown at us.
Your aim is your own. However big or small, once we agree to work together your aim becomes our aim and we are not people who take failure lightly. We will do everything in our power to ensure we win. From UKSF selection as a Tactical Athlete to sport specific goals and everything in between, your pathway will be built on you, your ability and our shared intended outcome. Together we will make a deal to be great and as a team we will be successful.
Your complete nutritional needs will be taken care of by expert and former, Tactical Athlete, RAPTCI, Airborne and Commando trained Dr Ash Cox. He will provide full nutritional support and consultancy throughout your journey with us. Our team of experts look at you from a holistic point of view.
Initially we will agree to a 91 day programme. Your programme will always develop and adapt as you develop and adapt or your circumstances change. It's common that aims last longer than 91 days and therefore near the end of the 91 days we will have the conversation to remain as a team. This means you will not get into a never ending subscription and we only continue as long as we are getting the best out of each other.
Exercises are prescribed with your current ability, current climate, current equipment list and intended aim in mind. Unlike any other programme on the market, each session your individual and exact weight, reps, sets, tempo and rest are prescribed for each exercise. This ensures you never under or over train. You have the ability to reflect for, in and on action with the team throughout. We will be on hand to constantly adjust training.
You get full access to former Parachute Regiment, RAPTCI & Tactical Athlete expert, Coach Mike Chadwick. one of the UK's best nutritionists, former Airborne, Commando and RAPTCI, Dr Ash Cox and Guinness World Record Holder and Exercise Rehabilitation Instructor (ERI), Gary McNamara. You will also have access to accoun
If your aim requires an improvement in aerobic capacity, then you will also be provided with the exact time, distance and speed to do so. This is worked out to the exact meter and the exact second, using any training modality (e.g. run, row, cycle, erg). How fast or far, depends on you, your ability and your aim.
For Tactical Athletes, you will also be given a personalised loaded march programme, built in. The exact time, distance, speed and weight will all be prescribed to ensure you never have to guess. Accumulative stress and fatigue are monitored throughout.
On top of enhancing your physical performance, we will work on thinking and decision making whilst under stress and fatigue. The more energy you have, the less fatigued you are and the more ability you have to think and make decisions; a non-negotiable for Commanders and Tactical Athletes of all levels. When you tire, you not only slow down, but you lose focus; we will continually work on this focus whilst tired to not only improve how well you can perform, but how clear you can think.
Direct access to Coach Mike and Dr Ash Cox via a closed mobile app for support and exercise instructional videos. You can track progress, message and upload pictures and metrics on there. Each phase is sent securely and can be accessed offline, anywhere in the world.
Information shared between coach and Tactical Athlete is strictly confidential. You will need to sign a GDPR to allow me to use your information to build your programme. I need to know you personally along with your current ability to help you evolve. We train in silence and we win in silence.
Reflection is athlete led. How often and how much you want to reflect is up to you. After every phase as a minimum we must reflect, analyse and adapt. You are given access objective analysis to show trends and percentile increase/decrease on performance.This provides rationale to our shared aim. We will be ruthless in reflection.
