Open to new instructor candidates, those who need to recertify, or for anyone just looking to deepen their knowledge of the TACFIT system.

Becoming a Field Instructor means not just being certified in TACFIT but joining a global team of people with the same passion, values and training protocols as you. Through this Certification, we want our students to prepare themselves with a deep understanding of our systems to better transmit the same to their athletes and clients.

You personally experience the depth in each of the steps, and all of the breadth in the wide range of modalities. This will give you the 6 energy protocols and 4 levels of complexity in the 26 foundational workouts, using our powerful toolbox of low-tech, high-yield solutions: Clubbells, Kettlebells, Sandbags, Medicine Balls, Gymnastics Rings, Plyometric Boxes, Parallettes, Pullup Bars and Bodyweight Movement.You are certified to teach within your department only.
