The Tactical Athlete Training Program (TATP) was developed to aid personnel in obtaining a high level of fitness specific to physically demanding tasks. The program is intended to meet and exceed the physical fitness needs of military personnel. The intensity of the program is higher than other programs offered in the Canadian Forces. It is advisable that the program should not be started without first establishing a good base level of fitness. The TATP was based on physically demanding tasks that combat personnel may be expected to perform as part of their job duties. It is designed to be exciting, challenging, adaptable and operationally focused.
