Fall is here, and for many who live the Iron Game lifestyle, that means we are “in season." A bunch of you think I am referring to football season, maybe the championship season of highland games, or powerlifting, but no, I’m talking about the oldest sport of them all, hunting season!
We believe that a person needs to be tactical fit for several reasons. How is your body going to react when your heart rate elevates to 170bpm and you have to think clearly, react quickly, pick something or someone heavy up, and then move to a point of safety. What happens when you can't do this effectively? What is the price of a life? Is not being healthy, strong, and fit with you or your family's lives? Because ultimately this could be the price.

This past weekend, the STS crew headed to William Brice Stadium for the 8th annual Summer Strong Expo and Combine. What a phenomenal event!

Your body responds to the way you think, feel and act. This is the MIND-BODY CONNECTION. When you are stressed, anxious or upset, your body tries to tell you that something isn’t right. There is nothing more important for your personal safety and protection then to be physically and mentally focused and prepared for anything.
