Adrian (TSAC-F) wanted to serve a group of athletes. Law enforcement, firefighters , and military. Tactical athletes.
Adrian registered for a TSAC Practitioners Course. NSCA.
Adrian attended the course. Game changer. So much to learn. So much to teach.
Then in May Adrian earned the TSAC-F. He then quickly worked to promote a program. Tim, a firefighter and coach had an interest and athletes to screen. Firefighters from multiple stations performed the screen.
Then Adrian and Exercise Science Interns promoted this to other tactical athletes. Adrian urged local parole officers, and the police academy to perform tests too. So Adrian developed a 5 day course. The five day course is educational as well as hands on. Athletes performed the 5 day course.
While Adrian was teaching courses, Chad developed the Total Athlete Profile (TAP) using 6 medical, and performance screens. It includes muscle, bone, and nerve tests. TAP is great for all athletes including tactical athletes. Adrian wanted to do more then 1 screen. So he decided to use TAP.
Pueblo Fire Dept. requests workshop, and screening to be part of annual program. (Contract Pending)
Screen new recruits before and after training academy November 2016.
Pueblo SWAT team education and screening in October 2016
Plans to use TAP which includes: Beighton (joint test), SFMA (medical screen), FMS (movement screen), Y-Balance Test (upper/lower body control), FCS (work capacity), 3D Maps (body awareness)
This is a screen for performance, prevention, and pain relief. It is easy to do. Fun. It can be done with anyone.
Each part of the screen takes less than 10 minutes. It is broken down into parts for ease of testing.
