Fitness and Disaster Preparedness
Host: Sam Coffman
Sam CoffmanFunctional fitness is a concept that describes practical, common-sense methods of both getting into shape and staying in shape. Like most things in our current American culture, it is easy to compartmentalize exercise into something that is separate from everyday life.

FitnessJoin Sam Coffman as he talks about the problems that this kind of compartmentalization of fitness presents, and how separating fitness from the rest of our life actually hurts rather than helps our true athletic ability. Sam discusses methods and concepts to help you use everyday tasks to keep your body fit enough to deal with the stresses of a post-disaster situation.The kind of fitness needed after a disaster includes several aspects in order to keep you healthy. Strength, cardio (stamina), nutrition, self-defense, mobility and flexibility are all key components of this kind of an approach to fitness.

Additionally, Sam talks about integrating situational awareness, breathing, focus and concentration and even weapons into a functional fitness routine. He answers common questions about high-intensity workouts, proprioception, plyometrics and “burst energy” as well as relaxation techniques and how these help a person cope with a high-adrenaline encounter.

In Sam Coffman’s survival school, the Combat Medic specialty is involved with the realm of the body. Sam talks about how a holistic approach to exercise and fitness creates a body and mind that are much more adaptable to unknown stresses, as well as an ability to recover more quickly from injury and exercise.

Join Sam as he guides you through some fundamental concepts to fitness that allow you to work out at any time of day in your own home or yard.
