We're stoked to have Coach Michael Bann as a member of our cadre of contributors! Michael is an elite strength and conditioning coach to professional and tactical athletes all over the world. He is also the On-Site Coaching Manager at Opex Fitness in Scottsdale, AZ. You can read more about Michael's extensive background on the Cadre page.

Michael will be contributing to the CST Blog by providing thorough explanations behind the CST On-Ramp Workout Programs for each of the four (4) Combat Chassis types. He has also assisted Pat with developing CST programming.

Two key components make Michael an excellent fit in the CST Cadre:

1. Tactical athlete experience - Michael has extensive experience with coaching members of US and Allied Special Operations Forces (SOF) as well as law enforcement officers and firefighters. With this experience comes an understanding of the unique and often extreme demands placed on these warrior-athletes. Factors such as mission set, rest quality, stress levels, and access to proper nutrition must all be accounted for when writing training programs for maximal performance enhancement, which is critical for success in dangerous environments.

2. Focus on the individual's performance - Michael's coaching philosophy dovetails with that of CST in that his approach emphasizes performance-based training. His philosophy treats each client as an individual and he prides himself as the coach who believes in mentoring, guiding, and leading each of his clients towards higher performance and resiliency.

Michael's contributions to Combat Strength Training have already been profound, and we're excited to have him aboard. We think you'll get tremendous value from his knowledge and experience.

Welcome aboard Michael!

Michael Bann is the coaching manager as well as head strength and conditioning coach for OPEX Fitness located in Scottsdale, Arizona. To contact Michael you may reach him at michaelbann@opexfit.com or view his Instagram account at https://www.instagram.com/coach_michael_bann/
