Train for duty. Train for life.
Each day, members of the military face new and unexpected challenges as conditions, terrains, and situations are always changing, requiring various physical assets and skills to succeed and, sometimes, survive. EXOS takes great pride in training members of the military and helping prepare and preserve the military's most important asset—human capital.
EXOS' military programs maximize the physical assets tactical athletes need to be successful every day for every mission by building strength, power, speed, and agility, while increasing flexibility and mobility to decrease the potential for injury. Integrating training programs with supportive nutrition and recovery strategies support both non-duty and mission operations for peak performance.
EXOS' Tactical Military programs include the Intensive Restoration and Training program as well as Tactical Military Education courses.
Intensive Restoration and Training Program
When a professional athletes gets injured they have a team relying on them. The same is true for tactical athletes. Their team needs them to return to action and provide their knowledge, skills, and expertise. Just like our support of professional athletes, we’re passionately dedicated to helping wounded warriors return to pain-free activity and high-intensity training so that they may continue to serve with their teams.
Built specifically for tactical athletes, the Intensive Restoration and Training (IRT) program bridges the gap between rehabilitation therapy and intensive performance training. Working together with TRICARE medical teams, our specialists create personalized training, nutrition, and recovery strategies, providing athletes the opportunity to focus solely on their recovery and training.
“Since coming to Athletes' Performance, I've been able to perform and do things physically that I didn't think I'd be able to do again. Just becoming stronger, you have a sense of accomplishment that you've pushed past a plateau, and you're really satisfied day-in and day-out. Coming here allows you to return to the job that you're so passionate about.”
—TSgt Marc Esposito
The IRT program includes:
- Performance Training — strength, power, speed and agility
- Physical Therapy — rehabilitation of current injuries and injury prevention strategies
- Performance Nutrition — personalized fueling and hydration plans to maximize performance
The Intensive Restoration and Training (IRT) program also serves as the backbone for the Eagle Fund, a joint charity between EXOS and the Andrews Institute that provides restoration and training services to wounded warriors.
“Before coming here, I was barely able to jump, barely able to run. Since coming to Athletes' Performance six weeks ago, I’m running 15 minutes on a treadmill and running sprints on a field. Things I never thought I’d be doing a year out from my injuries. I definitely feel that coming here has changed my life for the better.”
