Warrior Performance Education Series

The Warrior Performance Education Series includes both lecture and practical sessions. All sessions are planned to cover a one hour period, one hour per lecture and one hour per practical. We understood when planning the series that we would need to be as flexible as possible in order for it to work for military members. That is the reason that each is one hour in length and can also be booked based on your unit's schedule. For example, if you only have one hour a week, we can slowly introduce the series as you do not have to book the lecture and practical back to back.

All lectures and practical portions are based on scientific research. The aim is to educate our military members on why they are doing the exercises they do, how to do them effectively to increase physical performance and/or fitness and increasing overall health while educating members on injury reduction.
