The Fit To Fight Fire team recently sat down with O2X co-founder Adam La Reau to talk about the importance of comprehensive training programs for tactical athletes. In their conversation, Adam highlights the significance of taking responsibility to train for performance so that tactical athletes can keep themselves, their teams, their families, and their communities safe.
Adam shares his background as an accomplished young athlete and going on to become a Navy SEAL, and then on to attend the Harvard Kennedy School.
