Discover The Leading Kettlebell Program That Originated Behind the Iron Curtain, Has Been Tuned With Modern Sport Science, And Proven Effective In The Field By Athletes, Special Operations Personnel and Regular Joes - You Too Can Build A Lean & Sleek Muscularity While Boosting Your Performance & Health To New Heights
TACFIT Kettlebell Spetsnaz is a unique kettlebell training
program developed by Hall of Fame Coach Scott Sonnon. Coach Sonnon’s travel and
personal training through Russia led him to develop a fundamental kettlebell
training program to share with his students. He had discovered that the key to
effective training was to focus on the basics. Master each level of movement,
before progressing to the next. The incremental complexity included in TACFIT
Kettlebell Spetsnaz allow for continual improvement of the neuromuscular
system. This translates to effective weight-loss and muscle building. 4 levels
of complexity means that you can begin this program at any level and track your
progress as you move through the progressions.
The sophistication level in this program is what makes it
different from other kettlebell training programs on the market today. Instead
of focusing on counting reps, volume, rate, etc., TACFIT Kettlebell Spetsnaz
emphasizes technique and mastering the basics. We do not believe that
exercising faster or stronger is better. Only better is better! Through
progressive levels of sophistication, this program can help you sculpt that
chiseled physique you have always desired. But that is not all. TACFIT
Kettlebell Spetsnaz will make you stronger and faster, all in less than 30
minutes a day. The programming and progression of exercises ensures that you
will minimize the risk for training related injuries, which more importantly,
translates to a better quality of life.
TACFIT® is the original Tactical Fitness System, created by
Scott B. Sonnon. Tactical Fitness is defined as:
• Tactical: Of, relating to, or constituting a series of
actions, carefully synchronized, coordinated, planned and executed to achieve a
• Fitness: methods, protocols and principles to physically,
mentally and emotionally prepare, mitigate and compensate for specific
occupational, recreational and lifestyle stressors.
• Tactical Fitness, therefore, is a contiguous approach for
specific physical preparation to enter, overcome, and recover from stressors in
such a way that the individual and team become stronger, better and healthier
from the stressors, rather than deteriorate from them.
How Going Behind The
Iron Curtain Opened My Eyes To Our Weakness
By Scott Sonnon
"When I left for Russia, I was a lot like you. I was thirsty
for the truth about effective training. I was tired of gimmicks and “flavour of
the month” fat loss & muscle building scams. I crossed an ocean in search
of the TIME-TESTED methods old school Eastern athletes had been using for
generations, to not only build awe-inspiring physiques but to out-perform their
Western counterparts at every turn. In the West, it seemed like we were
constantly focused on tools and tricks. The latest trend proved irresistible as
it pulled us off track from our performance and our physique goals. $10,000
machines were shiny distractions from real progress. What I discovered behind
the Iron Curtain changed everything. I found methods that would propel me, my
athletes and eventually my physique clients directly to their goals — both
rapidly and sustainably — using a single tool that was as simple and raw as it
was effective. Almost unknown back in those days, the simple kettlebell has
exploded in popularity here in the West. But most people — even well educated
coaches — still aren't using it to it's full potential.
“Most programs out there focus only on working muscle and
Unfortunately, when it comes to building a great physique
and ensuring optimal performance in your sport or on the job, most programs out
there focus only on working muscle and burning fat. And as a result, program
designs are usually limited to one-dimensional gross motor movements. Make no
mistake. Conventional kettlebell exercises are tough. And you FEEL like you're
getting a great workout. But there's a glass ceiling to what you're able to
accomplish with brute force alone. If you've ever worked with my TACFIT
Kettlebell Spetsnaz programs, you'll know that won't happen with my material.
When in Russia, I immediately recognized how to apply the methods I was
learning from the country's top sport scientists and coaches to this timeless
tool. The training system I came up with was so powerful that I even ended up
coaching their Spetsnaz coaches and personnel. At the time, having a foreigner
in that role was unheard of — and more than a little controversial. The fact
that they even allowed it spoke volumes about the powerful results I was
getting with my approach.
The Solution? Use tactical and functional kettlebell
Because I've put in the time, you don't have to. By
following the programs I've developed for my special operations clients and law
enforcement units, you can expect a wide array of benefits, including…
accelerated fat loss lean and sleek muscular development functional carryover
into your sport or occupation better coordination and timing in all physical
tasks increased adherence to your exercise program and even a ramped up
Part Of The Secret — Variety And Progression
It's important that your training be infused with variety
and progression. Unfortunately, that's a rarity in most kettlebell programs. If
you stick to those “other” programs, you'll eventually either get bored and
give up, your body will begin to break down from injury and overuse, or you'll
reach an unbreakable plateau in your progress. That's because your focus on
muscle building and fat loss ignores the most crucial element in your training
— your nervous system.
Sophisticated Programming Will Turbo Charge Your Nervous
And that truly is the key. The nervous system drives
everything. If you don't challenge, stimulate and develop it, your progress
will stop dead in the water. The key to optimizing your workouts and fully
stimulating your nervous system for maximum physical development is the
inclusion of exercise sophistication. What's that? Essentially, it boils down
to starting with a simple movement and adding small pieces of complexity only
when your nervous system is ready to take on the next challenge. Incrementally
stimulating the nervous system without blowing a fuse by adding too much motor
complexity too quickly. You first learn to apply your maximum effort to a basic
movement. And then — when you're ready — you move on to the next level and do
the same. Motor programming is an admittedly complicated subject. But you DON'T
EVEN HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT. I've taken care of the entire process for you in
TACFIT Kettlebell Spetsnaz. Just follow the step by step progression and you'll
have everything you need to take that next big leap in your training. Whether
you're an athlete, a soldier, a police officer or just a regular guy or gal who
wants to look and feel great, this kettlebell program is perfect for you. If
you put in the effort, you can expect that fat to drip off your body as you
reshape a lean and sleek muscularity. You'll notice your movements becoming
more refined as your timing and coordination sharpens. And you'll even notice
that picking up new skills in other areas, such as sports or on the job, will
become easier as your nervous system begins to function at entirely new levels.
What do the Professionals Have to Say?
“Most of the sports
conditioning information out there is nothing but the same rehashed stuff. I
dare you to find Scott Sonnon's unique material in another source! Sonnon is
without doubt one of the top conditioning coaches in the US, the thinking man's
coach. He is the hologram man. Try and hit him and he disappears” - Pavel
Tsatsouline, former USSR Special Forces Spetsnaz Physical Training Instructor,
Military Master of Sport in Kettlebell Lifting, Author of the Russian

Coach Scott Sonnon is
one of the most engaging Fitness Celebrities that I have ever worked with. It's
paramount for me to associate with true experts, not just popular figureheads,
when it comes to my organizational leaders and colleagues. His Army of CST Coaches
have steadily been joining American Kettlebell Club to expand their
effectiveness, and I've not only been impressed with their ability to move
athletically, equally by their professionalism. It's a testament to their Head
Coach!” - Valery Fedorenko, World and Honored Master of Sport in Kettlebell
Lifting, World Champion and Record Holder, Head Coach of the American Kettlebell
“I have seen probably
every single kettlebell related instructional DVD that is out there and the
REAL difference with Sonnon is his way of explaining why, everybody else is
telling what and how and that is just fine but when you reach a certain point
it is absolutely vital to have this info. Vital ” - Teemu J. Kettlebell
