Reinforce quality movement with output and capacity to develop tactically relevant durability.

The Reinforce program coaches you progressively with a strategic application of movement, output, and capacity to help you hold what you've got while expanding your physicality.

This program mobilizes you four days per week, keeping you engaged and challenged with hour long sessions that touch all fundamental movement patterns. Physical adaptation is maximized with advice on how to reset from day to day and week to week.

The Reinforce program is perfect for professionals who struggle with consistency due to the competing demands of their job. Completing a day or two per week will maintain proficiency while training all four or five will definitely move the needle.

Reinforce is not for beginners but our Initiate program provides an ideal precursor to this one.
