The Operator Athlete
Subscription program, charged monthly for the duration
The Operator Athlete has been specifically designed by coaches from elite backgrounds to assist individuals who are looking to train for Tier One units or are a member of a specialised unit wanting to reinforce or enhance their ability to perform their role.
It can also be utilised to challenge higher level athletes as a driving force to achieve results.
This will be the hardest, yet most rewarding 24 weeks of training you will attempt. Not all will finish.
Focus areas of this program:
- Highly functional circuits
- Designed to increase endurance & aerobic capacity
- Strength training
- Swimming (both for recovery and improving stamina)
- Load carrying & running
What you will require in order to complete the program:
- Access to a well equipped gym including items such as a rowing machine, ski erg, assault bike
- A weighted vest
- A pool or ocean/ other large body of water
- A sturdy backpack (think pack marches)
- The ability to improvise, adapt and overcome
This program, whilst open to everyone - is not recommended for the feint hearted.
In signing up for the Operator Athlete, you will have direct access to coaches who currently work in specialised units across Australia who will be available to answer questions and provide tips to those on the program, as well as access to our exclusive Operator Athlete Facebook group.
This program will be hard, you will have to improvise, but just like everything we do here, you will achieve results.
For those who aren't yet sold, the first week of this program will involve baseline testing of your individual capabilities; from there, each week the intensity of your daily workouts will increase. The sessions will differ in both delivery and duration throughout the program, with an exponential rise in vigour.
NOTE: When you subscribe your order will be sent to our coaches to be manually distributed, so please allow time for this to occur.
Currently 10 weeks in and it was a slow burn at the start, but I’m really starting to find an increase in fitness. Even better than that it makes you think you can take on the challenging workouts. The programming is excellent, building in just enough rest and variation to allow you to keep smashing out the workouts
Currently 3-4 weeks into the program. Loving it so far, it’s a lot of work but definitely rewarding and challenging. Brings out your weakness, and forces you to get better at them. If you’re up for a challenge or want to find your weakness I highly recommend giving it ago!
8 weeks in, challenging and forces a commitment. Got me doing the exercises id usually skip in favour of weights or cables. Functional fitness has skyrocketed. Couldnt recommend enough.
So as I’m writing this I’m half way through week 14 and there’s huge changes in my fitness. My confidence in the pool is up, my running is literally miles better, my body weight strength is up and I’m still improving strength. This program definitely takes some heart to keep going and sometimes as a shift worker it means heading to the gym at odd times. But the results are worth it if you’ve got some big fitness goals. On top of all this I’m down 8kg.
Currently in week 14, noticing improvements in my conditioning. Well balanced program with some brutal sessions, and recovery. Knowledgeable coach. Highly recommended.
