Tactical Functional Training Instructor Course

Hours: 16
Tuition: $275

Program Information:

The Tactical Functional Training (TFT) Instructor course is designed to educate officers on how to integrate a TFT program into their agency and lifestyle that would address the many physical challenges or ailments of an officer throughout his or her career. TFT is based upon a unique combination of movements and exercises designed from the ground up to specifically focus on the needs of the law enforcement professional. TFT utilizes proven science/techniques, which have been utilized by athletes for years, to develop a more mobile, explosive, agile officer and reduce officer injuries. The course includes a Tactical Functional Training Journal.

This is a physical course, as such officers should be prepared to workout.
Please wear appropriate workout clothing.

TFT Combine
The TFT Combine is designed to integrate all physical demands of a law-enforcement officer. It serves as a “reality check” for many people in regards to their current fitness levels.

Instruction/Application of the TFT Journals
The TFT Journals will serve as the training companion for an officer once he/she leaves the course. This step-by-step program will provide a clear understanding of how to apply the TFT Program and reap the benefits associated with this unique program.
Facility Design
Budgets are non-existent these days so we will address how to integrate a state-of-the-art facility with a limited budget.

Accountability – The “Glue”
We all know we behave differently when no one is watching. We will address how to successfully implement and hold fellow officers/students accountable for their actions/responsibilities within the TFT program.

Nutrition and the “ TFT 21 Day Challenge”
Nutrition often brings to one’s mind many different “celery and carrot” eating programs. The “TFT 21 Day Challenge” will educate an officer/recruit on how combining proper nutrition with daily movement will help pro-long their careers, lives, and quality of living. We scale this life-long ambition down to 21 days due solely on the fact that it takes roughly 21 days to develop a new long-term habit.

Each department has a wide variety of skill level. The TFT program will show instructors how to quickly assess people so they are placed in the appropriate starting place in the TFT program.

**Cancellations for this class must be received by SLEA 35 days prior to the start of the program in order to avoid being billed!**
