Lorenzo, check out this link:
Tactical Fitness (http://www.rmaxinternational.com/forum/../pressroom/RMAXTacticalFitness.pdf)
It's currently being taught by police, fire and military departments nation and worldwide; including Italian and American Secret Service.

coach sonnon, nice link! lots of information. something in the article(?) jumped out:
"The psychological stresses of perpetual preparedness demand a continuum of physical skills that allow the biochemistry of crisis arousal to be safely, fully and expediently reabsorbed to avoid immuno-suppression and the host of stress-related illnesses and diseases faced by career tactical responders."
haven't really thought about this before. this is something like "never thinking of a doctor as someone who can get sick".
it has been said that a lot of the athletic programs that exist don't take into account the possiblity of "enabling illness". do you think that is true? if so, why do you suppose it goes largely unaddressed (calls for speculation... apologies for that).

MOST people who are very "fit" are totally unhealthy. They wouldn't last more than a few days maximum in extreme crises, if only one day. People assume fitness is general, when it is not. They assume it is healthy because they can lift a barbell, perform a muscle-up or run a marathon. Fitness and health are not mutually inclusive... unless specifically crafted to be so.
My background in psychophysiology training in Russia with special forces and secret police, my international experiences as an athlete and national coach, and then in America working with a neurobehavioral clinic for several years helping the brain damaged and mentally ill in movement therapy aided me in utilizing the experience of trauma, abuse and panic that I experienced as a child. All of this experience and education congealed into a cogent philosophy of physical and psychological conditioning.
The end result is TACFIT and was specifically designed as an exercise modality to prepare individuals and units for the rigors of sustained arousal under physical duress. This is why specialty organizations and agencies have adopted TACFIT as their conditioning approach since it addresses their needs specifically: not just physically, but also mentally and emotionally.

[SIZE=4]Fitness and health are not mutually inclusive... unless specifically crafted to be so.
coach sonnon, this point is slowly creeping in and taking root. after so many private messages to so many of your coaches, this seemed to be a recurring theme. must admit, it seems easy to assume otherwise. hmmmm. may have just answer own question....
wow! you really have seen a... difficult... cross section of human conditions.
again, your answers are helpful and appreciated.
