    Nate Palin served as a leader in the 2nd Ranger Battalion for seven years prior to his transition to strength and conditioning. Over the course of five combat deployments in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, Palin experienced the military’s fitness shortcomings and gained respect for the need for an enhanced approach to the physical training that supports mission critical tasks. He began his coaching career in 2010, focused on tactical strength and conditioning as a Performance Specialist for EXOS (formerly Athletes’ Performance) in the Washington, DC region in 2012, and currently supports Special Operations Forces in Washington State.
