O2X Human Performance to Deliver Two-Day Workshop

Chantilly, VA –  FirstNet®, Built with AT&T, and O2X Human Performance are collaborating to support the health, wellness and human performance of first responders nationwide. 

On March 8th and 9th, in honor of International Women’s Day, 60 female first responders will participate in a two-day human performance workshop designed specifically to meet job-related demands unique to female tactical athletes. The workshop will be led by an all-female team of O2X Human Performance personnel – including military veterans, Olympic and Division I collegiate athletes, and top-tier human performance specialists. 

First responders face extraordinary challenges that can lead to compounding stress over a 20+ year career. The workshop will incorporate training aimed at mitigating the impact of both mental and physical strain that can lead to behavioral health issues, fatigue, and burnout. Drawing on years of working with female tactical athletes, O2X’s curriculum will include elements of nutrition, strength training, sleep, stress management, and resilience – all customized to meet the demands of first responder populations. 

“Female first responders have unique health and wellness needs. Often, women struggle to find balance between their family, careers, health and their male dominated field,” said Dr. Anna Fitch Courie, Director, Responder Wellness, at the FirstNet program at AT&T. “The risk for depression and anxiety are very real, as well as negative coping mechanisms such as alcohol abuse.  This collaboration with O2X allows FirstNet to support these unique needs, establish a lasting support network, and contribute to a healthy first responder community,” 

This training program reinforces the strategic priorities established by the FirstNet Health and Wellness Coalition (FNHWC) to support first responders and their families. FNHWC’s mission is to integrate responder, community, industry, and academic capabilities to support the health, wellness, and readiness of American first responders.

“After hosting several all-women’s events in the northeast, we’re excited to bring the O2X program to a larger network of female first responders. It is fitting that this two-day workshop begins on International Women’s Day,” said Ali Levy, Director of Education at O2X Human Performance. “O2X recognizes the unique demands female first responders face and has created a program tailored to meet those needs. The workshop will deliver innovative, customized training focused on performance optimization and career longevity.”

The workshop will be held at Fairfax County Criminal Justice Academy in Chantilly, VA from 8am to 4pm daily.
