I start Scott Sonnon's RMAX 84 day TACFIT Commando program tomorrow morning, and wondering if anyone on here has done any of them before?

Interesting is that he does have a four day diet plan too which is all about good fats etc but I am just continuing my normal Paleo routine.

RMAX TACFIT??: http://www.rmaxi.com/tacfit/
Example routine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSojmSnljjU

The "aesthetics" are just awful, but the program is really intense. Definitely more go than show.

TACFIT history http://www.rmaxi.com/tacfit/programs.php I don't get every package, I tend to get every 2nd or 3rd package to see what new greatness he is laying down. By contrast, his advertising style can come across as a little bit like a carnival barker and I don't get a good feeling from it.

There are differing areas of focus. Some with bodyweight, some with life-development built in, some with swinging steel clubs... I've just been exploring what he lays don for years, and enjoy that it is not a fixed body of work... it is improving over time... just like me!

Dragondoor is laying a huge amount of work down. Why do you need so many different programs. Wouldn't just one do?

No it's downloads only. Was trying to work out a way to explain everything but here I printed out a tree view of all the files. http://toshine.org/pull/tacfit-commando.html Although I renamed ALL the downloads and grouped them as they weren't the best laid out. If you use the tacfitcommandotruth.com you get a discount. Honestly worth every penny. I am actually meeting up with a London CST trainer hopefully next week to chat.

How does the program work for you? Also is it like 30 dvds that you got with yours? I can't tell the difference between the 7 or so different programs.

Even just the mobility movements are intensive.

I must admit the websites overall feel odd, but please don't let that put you off. Scott Sonnon is very respected and you can google him and CST/TACFIT training and certification.

They have just released a new series working with Firefighters: http://tacfitfirefighter.com/. The possible issue is that they have been around for ages and so have many programs and so many sites. If I had money I would offer to help them tie everything together better.

I have been using Sonnon's products for years and I'm a huge fan of his work. I started in 2006 with a program called

  • The Path, and have made stops at

    CST,

    Threshold Training,

    Intu-Flow,

    TACFIT Mass Assault,

    TACFIT Warrior (so sweet!), and

    TACFIT King of Clubs.

. Each time a new program comes out he ACTUALLY improves it.

TACFIT history http://www.rmaxi.com/tacfit/programs.php

I don't get every package, I tend to get every 2nd or 3rd package to see what new greatness he is laying down.

By contrast, his advertising style can come across as a little bit like a carnival barker and I don't get a good feeling from it.

NO-ONE else is laying out the great density and intensity of information that he is, IMNSHO he is selling some of the best video instruction out there.

He is even better in person, but that can be harder to arrange than downloading info.

I have also found the forum attached to RMAX to be full of some of the nicest, most helpful, physical fitness nuts on the planet. http://www.rmaxinternational.com/forum/index.php

There is so much stuff that seems to come with his programs I was looking at. The website reminds of Dragon Door. I feel like I'm going to be scammed. Is the program any good?

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. TACFIT is awesome, and is the only system that actually fits with a paleo lifestyle. Scott Sonnon focuses on recovery first, and health first fitness which is what paleo is all about. The mobility drills and compensation exercises are the most important part and if you did only these you will see benefits to many areas. To answer an earlier question 'why not one program?', not only does each have a specific focus, but variety in regime removes the diminishing returns of using a single program repeated for an age. It is functional fitness, GO muscle rather than SHOW muscle, again more fitting with paleo as a health first approach.

The adverting websites are cheesy and overdone but I would jut ignore this. The programs, even with some sub par editing, are pure gold. Follow his blog, linked above is the best place to start to understand his genius approach. The key is cycling the routines and sophistication of exercises.

As to the specific program it depends what tools you have, or if you just want to do body weight exercises.

For bodyweight only; Warrior and Commando are king. I prefer commando as there is more material in there (3 'missions' to cycle with 3 levels to progress through) for 9 months of awesomeness. Also a good fat-burner.

For dumbells: Mass Assault

If you have lots of equipment, TACFIT 26 has a massive array of material and has loads of regressions (basic versions of the exercises) so is perfect for beginners.

If you want a different approach. Buy a clubbell and try King of Clubs, it is just awesome - Circular strength is the way forward with reduced likelihood of injury etc. Get a second club and run through Trial by Fire - just a different level of awesomeness, and as the name suggests - it burns.

You cat go wrong with anything from Scott Sonnon
