"Tactical Garage Gym is a total fitness training regimen for breakthroughs in all areas of life to not only get you looking and feeling like a ripped Spartan warrior but also "sheepdog strong" to face whatever obstacles life throws your way."

Hi, my name is Chris Reardon. I've trained my entire adult life for the crucible of combat and to overcome the adversities of life with 15+ years of active duty in the US Marine Corps. I learned early on that in the military, "fitness" isn't just about physical conditioning… it's about a holistic approach to training the connection between mind, body, spirit, and relationships as a vital component of human performance and wellness in order to operate at peak performance on the job and at home.  

However, as I sought to train myself, my Marines, and other fellow service members how to perform as bosses on the battlefield and in life, I realized that a training program was needed beyond just physical conditioning to achieve a holistic level of human performance and life mastery. So I got to work designing and then implementing a total fitness program for military professionals who needed to be tough to face the rigors of combat by maintaining high levels of personnel readiness in order to be deployable at a moment's notice. I soon realized that other tactical professionals in the law enforcement, fire rescue, and first responder world would benefit immensely from this training experience and so I created a training system called "Tactical Garage Gym" where you can train with myself and other military total fitness coaches! To learn more, click on the thumbnail picture below to hear from me personally about training with the Tactical Garage Gym system!

Tactical Garage Gym 3, 2, 1...Go!

# 1. Fitness for Operators by Operators

Overview: The functional fitness programming in Tactical Garage Gym is based on the philosophy that "gym numbers mean nothing," and "all that matters is performance" first espoused by veteran Coast Guard officer Rob Shaul of Mountain Tactical Institute (MTI). We leverage the expert fitness training programming from MTI that has been designed by military operators for military operators through rigorous research of the warrior profession with field testing of exercises and progressions that will meet the demands of the job. It is designed with safety in mind to keep these athletes safe during training and on the job by optimizing fitness levels without creating unnecessary injuries.

Programming Detail: Training sessions and cycles are thoroughly programmed and designed. Nothing is random about our training sessions. Programming is based on the following:

Fluid Periodization: The MTI programming rotates between strength, work capacity, TAC SEPA (tactical drills), endurance, mountain fitness, and durability to include rucking with a weighted pack in the outdoors or on a treadmill.

Bias toward Strength, Mobility, and Durability: While you will gain muscle mass and tone, your training will be focused on preparing you for real-world challenges


Focused Core Strength Training: Training sessions include dedicated and focused core strength training circuits to work your combat chassis. We believe a strong midsection is essential to durability and our programming reflects this.

Equipment Required: You will do these workouts in your garage gym or in your work training facility with a specific physical fitness performance goal in mind with the following types of equipment used during workouts: Barbell, Bumper Plates, Sandbag, Flak vest/Bullet Proof Vest/Weight Vest, Ruck, Dumbbells, Kettlebells, Plyometric Box/Bench, and Pull Up Bar


#2 Learn What It Takes to be Sheepdog Strong

During your training, you will be provided with motivating music soundtracks and videos developed by "Military Life" that will push you to perform at a higher level during your workout.

You'll also receive motivational messages, especially including from the military and veteran thought leader community to inspire you to push harder in your workout with the added benefit of inspiring you to push through the obstacles in all areas of your life to make you victorious in areas of human performance and life mastery.

Speakers include but are not limited to: Retired US Navy SEAL Jocko Willink, Marine Corps Explosive Ordnance Disposal Expert with Combat Experience with the Elite Marine Raiders MSgt John Rudd, former UK Royal Marine Commando Ant Middleton, retired US Navy SEAL/Founder of SEALFIT and Unbeatable Mind CDR Mark Divine, and more!

"Getting better is a campaign…it's a campaign, it’s a daily, a weekly, it’s an hourly fight. It's an incessant fight that doesn't stop against weakness, against temptation, and against laziness. It’s a campaign of discipline. A campaign of hard work and dedication. It's waking up early and going to bed late and grinding every second in between…every single day" - Jocko Willink, US Navy SEAL (Ret))
