Mountain Tactical had over 4.5 million page views in 2016, and by far, our most read article was an opinion piece I wrote last Spring after teaching Unit Fitness Leaders to First Responders in Salt Lake, Boise and Denver.
What struck me after these courses that the first responders didn’t see fitness as a no-compromise safety issue as I do.
“Silent Acceptance = Quiet Approval” I wrote.
The article received significant feedback – the most interesting of which was the back and forth between the first responders themselves.
Our work with first responders in all areas continues.
