What is NOFFS?
Evidence based functional fitness training program designed for all levels. The main goal is to reduce/mitigate musculoskeletal injuries (i.e. sprains, strains and stress fractures). This program is for you; whether you want to maintain your weight, improve lean muscle mass, focus on cardiovascular or strength/power training, or you simply want a challenge.
If you don't get a consistent workout each week, and/or workout less than three (3) days per week, it is recommended to start with a solid base in the "operational" program. Note: Our advanced "sandbag" training program is for those in austere environments and/or advanced levels of fitness.
What is the Goal of the 2-Week NOFFS Virtual Challenge?
The primary focus during COVID-19, is to continue social distancing, maintain your fitness level, and to provide a fun, safe activity. This program can fortunately be completed anywhere; your backyard, garage or any room in your house.
