Tactical Athlete Initiative

The Tactical Athlete Initiative is a multi-discipline collaboration providing research, training and support for military, police, fire and EMS workers. Through programs like the Soldier Athlete Human Performance Optimization Program (SAHPO) and the Tactical Athlete Readiness and Preparedness Program (TARP), the Tactical Athlete Initiative has partnered with multiple agencies to reduce the number of injuries and increase readiness and preparedness of tactical athletes.

Tactical athletes include populations in military agencies and first responders who require unique physical training strategies aimed to optimize their performance in the field.
