Sometime these tactical athletes will find themselves in a department that does not have a budget to provide a high-quality facility filled with the most current physical fitness equipment. 

    Suspension training is a method of training that uses bodyweight and simple physics to provide a full body workout and functional movement patterns. These systems have demonstrated that users can maintain their strength and, in some cases, even increase their strength.

    This article is recommended because it provides a solution for maintaining a fitness program during a period of time that equipment, space, or funding may not be readily available.
