I’m not a Navy SEAL, police officer or firefighter, and I don’t have a tactical job whatsoever. Will TACFIT Commando still work for me?
Will it work? Yes. That is, if you’re referring to it bringing about the results it was created for. But is it right for you? Well, that depends on what you’re looking for.
As has been established, TACFIT Commando was designed for the tactical fitness needs of service people: military personnel, law enforcement, and firefighters, among others. In a nutshell, TC is an equipment-free fitness program that is designed to improve the conditioning attributes and movement patterns needed for these types of jobs – and it’s something that was designed to be done while in the field (ie anywhere). So, it has some pros and cons, advantages and limitations. For example, it uses bodyweight exercises exclusively, which is a really good thing because you can train anytime, anywhere. You don’t need a gym membership or even a home gym to use it. If you’ve got a little bit of floor space, then you can follow the complete program. And bodyweight exercise is a superb method of training in-and-of-itself, but like every other training method, it has it’s limitations, too. Surely, having a few well-chosen pieces of equipment in your home gym or health club opens up a whole new array of training possibilities, and if you have access to that, there are other great programs out there which will let you take advantage of them.
Scott Sonnon himself designed and created the clubbell training tool to fill a gap in his own training for martial art – a gap that couldn’t be filled with bodyweight exercise or other training tools. So, owning a clubbell gives one more options, as does owning kettlebells, dumbbells, sandbags, and any other training tools.
That said, TACFIT Commando will absolutely deliver on most of it’s claims. If you use it, you will burn fat, build lean muscle, improve your conditioning (specific to the program and needs of tactical operators), reduce your chance of injury, among other things. It absolutely will help you do these things, but it will do so through the filter of tactical bodyweight workouts for service people.
So, yes, it will work for you, at least in that context. Now, whether or not it’s the best choice for you depends on all sorts of things. So, I’d say that if you want to a) try something new, and b) use a high intensity bodyweight training program that strengthens movements, not muscles, then TACFIT Commando is definitely worth a serious look. It’s a quality program that produces real results.
