High Intensity Tactical Training (HITT) is a comprehensive strength and conditioning program that provides programming, facilities and education for active duty and reservist Marines. It focuses on physical resiliency and combat readiness. Phases of work out include pre-deployment, deployment, and post-deployment, or building your own workout templates, the Marine can fully develop and maintain their physical readiness and resiliency.
The tactical strength and conditioning program encompasses 4-week training blocks within the calendar year to prepare Marines for PFT/CFT seasons. Each Marine will be given a tracking sheet for these block periods to ensure progress has been made in our HITT program.
These training blocks contain the foundational movement patterns (hinge, push, pull, squat, lunge, rotate, plank, carry, run) which make our Marines succeed in their physical capabilities, but also job specific tasks. A recovery week is provided after the 4-week blocks to ensure proper rest is taken before the next block occurs.
The HITT coaches also provide physical testing measures during the calendar year to ensure that our Marines would need to focus on certain tasks such as change of direction, speed, 3-mile run, or strength.
- As a unit leader small or large, you can get your Marines involved by contacting the HITT program coordinator and scheduling a time for your unit to train. All HITT sessions are coordinated and led by highly qualified strength coaches, allowing unit leaders and commanders to be confident their Marines are receiving superior training.
