Portable Fitness On The Go
Take A Piece Of Equipment That Costs Less Than Your Favorite Coffee Drink And Use It To Train Anywhere, Anytime.
We’re not concerned with how other systems do things. There are no absolutes. The solution is always relative to the mission, the training equipment you have at your disposal, your point of origin, and your ultimate goal. At TACFIT, we’re concerned with the most effective and efficient way to achieve OUR goals. With ROPE, our goal is to take a piece of equipment and use it to train anywhere, anytime. Agents in the field don’t always have access to fully-stocked barbell gyms. They’re often deployed in problematic locations, and they have to jam in their training between missions. They need to know how to improvise training tools with whatever they have close at hand, so they can expand what they’re capable of working on in the field.
TACFIT ROPE is a portable suspension training system that utilizes instability to produce functional muscle gains, sophisticate movement, increase range of motion, while building the lean physique of a commando.The exercises are unconventional and very unique. TACFIT ROPE can be followed as a stand-alone program or as a plugin to TACFIT Commando, effectively incorporating pulling exercises into that system. 3 Levels of difficulty keeps you challenged for months.
Suspension training takes the bodyweight training you know to a whole new level. You will literally suspend yourself in midair. If you are looking to build functional muscle convenient and fast, this is the way.
TACFIT® is the original Tactical Fitness System, created by Scott B. Sonnon. Tactical Fitness is defined as:
• Tactical: Of, relating to, or constituting a series of actions, carefully synchronized, coordinated, planned and executed to achieve a specific end.
• Fitness: methods, protocols and principles to physically, mentally and emotionally prepare, mitigate and compensate for specific occupational, recreational and lifestyle stressors.
• Tactical Fitness, therefore, is a contiguous approach for specific physical preparation to enter, overcome, and recover from stressors in such a way that the individual and team become stronger, better and healthier from the stressors, rather than deteriorate from them.
TACFIT redefines fitness as the ability to be more prepared than the challenges you face (called “medical readiness” in tactical-speak), to always be ready to navigate challenges with ease and imagination, to remain in a supple state of flow regardless of the task at hand, and to train with a purpose which has been proven to prevent injuries which happen from random workouts.
TACFIT cascades the entire waterfall of physical attributes: functional stamina, complete range of motion strength, three-dimensional movement potential, multi-modal agility and coordination, compensation for occupational and lifestyle repetitive actions and positions, and an integrated active recovery and prehabilitation. It offers a variable, customizable, incremental path of progress, while offering mental alertness, clarity and concentration, with emotional control and the ability to restore calm chemistry after intense physical exertion.

“You can keep your movements simple and basic, increasing the difficulty and intensity through resistance, time, reps etc. But it is boring. To keep progressing you need more complex movement patterns that covers more than one or two dimensions, ie in the 6 Degrees of Freedom.”- Herman Chauw
“When the dust settles and all the TacFit Rope secrets have been revealed, you realize that TACFIT ROPE truly is a remarkable system of training. Not only are you saving lots of money on your own home suspension system, but you’re being given a series of progressive bodyweight movements that pales in comparison to what is currently being taught out there in the market.” - Parth Shah
